Looking for smart cover for the gold iPad air 2.
Which one do you all think looks the best? Please share your insights. If you already have iPad air 2, tell me which case you bought.
Thanks. :)

I've got a red Smart Cover because it's what I already had for my first generation iPad Air. Compliments the gold a lot better than I thought it would.

Picked up a gold 2 at my local Apple store and went with the Olive Brown case.
All the other colours did not really gel with the gold, although you can't really
see the iPad when it's in the case!
I have my current Air SG in a black Apple case so I fancied a change.

I got Red. Staples is selling most iPad Air Smart Covers (original) for $19.50. I say most because for some reason the store I purchased from still had the black one at full price.

I was going to go with blue or red until I saw the new white. It's pretty slick, so went with white.

Those who bought white, are you not worried about discoloration? I thought the white looked great but then realized it would probably collect a bunch of dirt/stains over the years.

Everything looks tacky with Gold. I wouldn't get Gold in the first place but if you do and you don't want to look like a total douche, then get the cover in Black.

Exactly, since cases are made in leather, which gets dirty and shows discoloration over time. Even a red case may pick up dirt over time as it did on my iPhone 5s Apple red leather case. I don't know about discoloration in smart covers, since they are made in polyurethane. That's why I have a midnight blue case (very dark blue), which I think is a good alternative of black.

I had the midnight blue case with my iPad 3rd Gen. It looks like total crap now. That said, I don't know what a white one would look like, probably way worse.

I really like the midnight blue, but I've seen several people with the midnight blue case on their iPhones and it looks terrible with wear - my black one still looks great. Not sure if the iPad's case would wear as fast as the iPhones, but if it does it looks awful. I'm still considering it but don't want to spend $100 on a case that'll look like crap in a year.

I don't know about the cases - I bought the white cover (I returned my blue case because it added to much bulk).
The white cover is really really slick.
I thought the gold iPhone looked tacky, but for some reason it works really well with the new iPad Air.

Can we see what it looks like? I wanted to get a blue today for my Air 2 but am having second thoughts it's a good amount of money to drop on if it'll look ugly in a months.

Pfft im tired of black and love rocking my gold iPad Air 2 lol

----------

Will the ipad 2 smart covers work with iPad air2?

No only the air 1 smart covers will. The side bezels are much smaller on the iPad Air and iPad Air 2

I think the red one looks great with wear imo
