    Is anyone having problems with their smart cover not locking/unlocking after 6.0.1 update? The thing is I'm not sure if it was detecting the magnets out of the box but I definitely started noticing today after the update.

    Smart cover and 6.01 update

    I can't vouch for the large iPad, but my iPad mini still turns on and off with the Smart Cover after the 6.0.1 update.

    False alarm!

    Sorry guys but I played with it some more and this may be helpful for those of you with weaker magnets in their non-Apple Smart Covers!

    I really don't have a Smart Cover but a Miniot wood cover that functions just like a Smart Cover less the hinges. I've used this with my iPad 2 without issue and recently upgraded to the ipad 4 last Friday and just didn't start noticing until today that the iPad 4 does not lock/unlock when covered/uncovered as with my iPad 2. This is probably due to the added about margin of error!

    Same with my yoobao case. But Apple picked up the tab and is sending me a smart cover for free. :cool:
