    It has a one year warranty.

    I've had a black and a red, first on iPad2 and on iPad3 since launch. Neither peeled, nor fell apart within a year of extensive usage.

    Discoloration or markings from use, sure. Peeling would definitely not be expected.

    Well took it back and the assistant was a littled shocked and agreed it had to be faulty from the start so they exchanged it for a smart case free of charge :)

    This was a geniune apple product so expected more than two months which the assistant at apple store agreed it was faulty. That's why they replaced it with the smart case

    Tbh I'm happy with the smart case fits nice and snug not loose at all like I have read. The edges are a little sharp but seems to offer a decent level of protection too.
