Given Apple dropped the ball on this one, does anyone know of a 3rd party alternative to the smart folio cover that is made with leather?
Maybe we need to start a petition for Apple to produce them? I would love to see a Saddle Brown or ProductRed on my Space Gray iPad!

I just don't know what they were thinking. The leather cases are so much nicer and I don't want to wrap my shiny new iPad in synthetic crap.

Sad that this is the flagship iPad and Apple won’t sell us something like the great leather covers they offer for the iPhone. Good opportunity for an aftermarket company to step in.

So they can charge $250 for a case?

I bought the folio, because I needed something, but damn it’s a ripoff.

It’s not even branded FFS!

I'm not overly concerned about the lack of Apple branding. I prefer no branding at all. However, I have noticed the price creep which is even more difficult to justify with these compared to the prices of the tech.

I concur. When you pay North of $1900 for a tablet, you want something ultra luxurious in the form of fine leather.

I’m looking on their website. Do you (or anyone) know what the difference is between Future Folio vs. Vettra leather cases?
The vettra rotates to portrait while in landscape. The future folio stays in one position
