Just wanted to chime in after a few days use with my new Mini 4. I ordered the smart cover from Apple for the Mini 4 a week before my mini showed up. Now that the Mini 4 has been with me a few days, I have found its Smart Cover has not left its side. The design of the new Smart Cover is better than all my other older Apple smart covers. It has a magnet that allows it to be folded strait back and hold very securely to the back of the Mini 4. This offers the thinnest holding arrangement of any cover still attached to the tablet. This also allows the cover to stay attached when on my Twelve South Mini 4 stand. The typical folding positions work like all the other smart covers in the past from Apple which is to say excellent. Bottom line....I recommend the Apple factory smart cover for the new Mini 4. Twelve South charging stand from the Apple Store.
