    Hello.

    I have googled this issue, but the responses I found didn't help me.

    I just got my iPad Air for Christmas and with it got a cover that has a magnet to lock it when closed.

    However, in iOS 7, I don't see the same option that iOS 6 had to allow a cover to lock and unlock the iPad.

    I have tried to toggle the auto lock to never and then back to 2 mins, I have tried rebooting the iPad with the cover attached....nothing i do enables the on/off toggle from iOS 6 to come up in iOS 7 and my cover still doesn't lock/unlock the iPad.

    Anyone have a fix/suggestion as to why?

    Thanks in advance.

    Is this an official Apple smart cover? Once a cover is in place, there is an option in settings to turn on/off the iPad when the cover is opened/closed.

    It will be on the right hand pane in settings/general.

    My nephews got iPad minis for christmas with cheap cases that have the smart case features, didn't work. In order to get the setting to show I had to put my smart cover on and then they started to work.

    Thank you for the pics and the response.

    The case I have is no the Apple Smart Cover.

    Does anyone know of a way to get the toggle to enable other than having to find an Apple smart cover and putting it on? I had it in iOS 6 on my old iPad, however, it disappeared in iOS 7 on the new one I got yesterday.

    If it's not an official Apple Smart Cover, the magnets could be reverse polarity and would explain why it's not working/triggering the sleep wake function.

    Went by a local Best Buy this weekend and grabbed one of the display smart covers. Worked like a charm and now my case works as well.

    Wish I didn't have to do that but at least it works now. Thanks again for the help.
