Anyone know where to get an official Apple leather smart case/folio for a Mini 5?
New/Old Stock would be great. I'm also open to 'gently used' lol

I have one, as I still had a mini 2 and decided to get a mini 5 over the weekend.
I did that after trying a kindle as my main e-reader for a couple of weeks and just hated the UI, after using various iPads for 9 years and the im2 was just slow and home button didn’t work as well anymore.
There not the same size and mini 5 is bigger buy a few mm 3-4 maybe. The top will catch, but the bottom pops out where it’s a tad long, none of the ports line up except headphone and if it fits the charging. Been laying it under a stack of books the last two night hoping the leather will stretch.
Not holding out hope, ordered a $10 moko case from Amazon.
Really would love another like this as it covered everything 360 deg, any of the leather case makers have made one?

I’m using the pink sand Smart Cover and I have a padded pouch that I put it in when I’m not using it.
