    No, the magnet will be in the wrong place, the size is totally wrong, and the magnetic latch to attach it to your iPad is curved so that won't fit either. Sorry :(

    A $40 case is a deal breaker to not buying a $500 tablet? LOL


    I'll call BS on that one

    Really? A £35 smart cover is a deal breaker when you are spending a minimum of £399 on a new iPad? That's........odd.

    Flush? Nope? But perhaps the magnets are aligned in the same way maybe?

    Chance are the hinges could attach, but damn - it'd look ugly.

    It was a deal breaker cos I'm not spending that much am i.....i have the ipad 3 which i can get about £270-£300 for.......spending £479 on the new one which is max £200 more.....not £500!! So it's hardly BS is it.......my case cost me £69 I think cos it's the leather one.....so that's pretty much down the drain.

    Anyway I bought one anyway cos I'm a mug.....but just making a point, at the time it WAS a deal breaker.....cos it meant going from spending £180-200 more to about £250 more!

    My leather cover was $80 for the $499 tablet which is 16% of the cost of the iPad. Any accessory worth that much should be taken into consideration to make wise financial decisions. Unless you don't make wise financial decisions in life, then of course, who cares about the accessory. Just buy.

    I got my iPad Air 2 case (which is also compatible with the Air 1 and Apple branded from an authorized reseller of Apple like Bestbuy, Staples, Costco) for like $8 in the US. Granted it was on clearance, but if you know someone in the US or planning to visit ...
