All,

Using shoe stretch fluid and a book that was slightly larger than my OEM Apple leather sleeve that was made for my second generation iPad Pro 12.9, I sprayed the inside of the sleeve until it was saturated, put a book inside a gallon size ziplock bag, and stuffed the book into the sleeve. I then weighed down the sleeve with a heavy backpack to keep it flat. After about 4 hours, I took the book out of the sleeve, let the sleeve air out, cleaned it with leather cleaner, and slid in my 4th generation iPad Pro with the magic keyboard attached with absolutely no issues. It works perfectly and looks like it was made for my new 4th generation iPad Pro 12.9.

I love that I managed to repurpose my old apple leather sleeve. If you have one laying around... give it a try.

Joe

You should create a YouTube tutorial on how to do that. :)
