    Has anyone else had an issue with the screen no lighting up properly when opening the Smart Cover? Mine is always really dark and slowly gets brighter over 20-30 seconds. My iPad Air was instantly at the right level. This a bug or intended nature?

    Same thing happens to me, but the screen quickly lights up over 2-3 seconds. I am using a 3rd party case with an integrated Smart Cover. A bit annoying when you want to quickly peek at notifications but otherwise, not really an issue for me.

    Mine does the same sometimes and is not a real issue. hard to believe that someone returned their device twice for this.

    My iPad 2 has been doing this too. I think it's a software bug with iOS 9.3

    My iPad Pro 9.7 does this occasionally too. It's like it's at the minimum screen brightness setting when the cover is opened. It goes to normal brightness within about 3 seconds after doing fingerprint authentication. I'm not worried about it. Probably an iOS bug.

    I'm using both the Apple Smart Keyboard and Smart Cover.

    Mine does this without using a smartcover. When I first turn it on, it's very dim. But a few seconds and it's bright.
