    So I have the smart case thing for my miniR, and sometimes when i open it it turns on but starts at the welcome screen, asking me to slide to open. Other times when i open the smart cover it opens up directly to the home screen. I have no password set and i have "auto-lock" set to never. I don't want to have to slide my finger to open it, isn't that the whole point of the smart cover?

    It may have something to do with notifications, but even so, if i have a new email when i open it, shouldn't it just show me a notification bar at the top (what i have email notifications set to)? That's what it does for new facebook post notifications, etc.

    Do i have some setting wrong? I figured "auto-lock" would be it, but that's set to never. Or is this kinda like how I occasionally have to sign in to itunes with my password to be able to sign in to itunes with my fingerprint on my 5S? So I occasionally have to slide my finger to open the ipad in addition to just lifting the smart cover.

    Mine always unlocks, but sometimes it does show the lock screen for a fraction of a second.

    Overall, the quality of Apple software is in a downhill slide. Everywhere yiu look, there's a disaster. I get the impression that the genius Apple programmers of old days suddenly disappeared and got replaced by clueless Indian programmers.
