    Hey guys, just bought an iPad Air 2 in gold. Loved it and I want to get a good combo Smart Cover + Clear back case to show off the gold.

    The midnight blue color (made for Smart Case) would be superb with my Gold iPad Air 2, but looks like Apple doesn't make them. You guys know where I can find a fake one with the same color?

    Also, which clear back case is best if I want to use it with a Smart Cover? I heard that TPU is better because the Hard one breaks easily (mostly corners). Please let me know.

    Thanks.

    Apple still has them in their stores you just have to ask for them.

    Where? I'm in Montreal Canada and only color available on their website are yellow, blue, green, black and red.
    Midnight blue smart cover is only available for iPad mini 4 and iPad Pro. Midnight blue smart case is available for iPad Air 2 tho.

    As far as I am aware they never made an Air Smart Cover in Midnight Blue. They made the Smart Case - that's a case and Smart Cover combined - in midnight blue and that's still sold.

    This third party one on Amazon is a similar colour.

    I bought a midnight blue Smart Case last week and they are still for sale. Apparently the Smart Cover isn't available in midnight blue.

    Thanks, I've seen this case. However, I don't wanna use it with their back case. I just want the midnight blue Smart cover with a clear back TPU case. I just love how the midnight blue color match perfectly with a gold iPad Air 2. The reason I want a detachable front and back is that I don't like having the front part hanging or having to hold it.

    As already mentioned, only the Smart Case was available in Midnight Blue for the Air 2 (I have one).
    The Midnight Blue Smart Cover is only available for the Mini 4, and Pro.

    Considering most posts on here say the same thing, I'm inclined to believe the OP edited their original post.

    I was the third response. OP's "but looks like Apple doesn't make them" was there from the start.
