    Comparing measurements, it seems it will. Any thoughts?

    even though the 11" is a tad wider it will still fit I think. the reason I won't pick one up is because the new Apple Pencil is shorter so it won't fit exactly into the small pocket at the top. hope they will introduce an 11" sleeve that will fit the iPad + smart folio

    Diameter is the same. Length is .39 inch shorter than original. Should be fine.

    I was wondering about diameter. Interesting, so it would actually be a bit easier to get it out of the pocket. Id still be annoyed if I bought the 10.5" sleeve and they came out with an official 11" one after. I'll wait until there's people online that have tried the combination im looking for then I might buy one

    It does fit. It is snug with the folio fitted but still squeezes in okay. I believe the keyboard folio would not fit though.

    It absolutely fits with the Smart Keyboard. The first 3 or 4 times pulling it out were awkward because of how snug, but it’s leather it will stretch and be fine. The pencil holder is obviously longer, but the pencil still fits and stays secure.

    With the way it covers the back and the pencil magnetically attaches, I don’t know how long I’ll keep using the sleeve...

    Keyboard folio fits, but it’s very difficult to get out. The sleeve will stretch over time but I’m not sure I want to deal with it until it would.

    Last night and most of the day today, I’ve put it in the case head first and charged that way to help stretch the leather. It’s getting better. Just like a leather holster, it needs break in time

    From what I read here it works, but would yo reccomend buying this sleeve for the 11 inch pro? Also how is the experience with the pencil considering it's shorter? Are there any other good sleeve alternatives? I need one ASAP.

    Thanks all!

    I ordered the Apple leather sleeve for my 11” iPad Pro today it taupe. At $49 from target It’s a great deal. I had the same sleeve in black for my 10.5 and am sort of kicking myself for selling it on eBay. I remember it took some time for the leather to stretch with the 10.5 and Smart Keyboard but it broke in nicely. Hope it does the same with the 11” and Smart Keyboard.

    Well, those went quickly! I was just about to buy one based on this.

    The non-Saddle Brown colors are still available, but the brown one was the one that was $49.

    Could someone please post a picture of the 11 inside the sleeve? If possible with the Smart folio attached and the Pencil 2 in its pocket. Thank you

    Just picked up the leather sleeve last night. Here’s my 11” iPad Pro with Smart Keyboard attached. A snug fit but the leather is already starting to stretch out a bit.

    Thank you! The only thing keeping me from buying one currently is the thought of them releasing an 11“ version soon.

    Yeah I initially had the same reservation but you can pick one up for under $50 at target or eBay, so even if/when they release a new one I can always sell this one and recoup most of the cost.
