    If someone made a silicone back cover that matched the Apple front silicone cover, I would buy in a second!

    I have tried 7-8 cases and none are near as good.

    Why not go with a clear back covering?

    Also what color Apple covering do you have? I never had one on my iPad because I recalled how my iPod was scratched with one on. The dirt got trapped and the back was scratched. So I went with a nice Timbuk2 sleeve. an Apple front cover , and nothing on back. I will most likely do the same when I get an iPad Pro.

    I have been looking around and saw that Khomo (https://khomoaccessories.com/collections/apple-ipad-pro-2-10-5) sells some in some of the colors offered for the 10.5 Smart Cover. Now, I don't know if they match perfectly, but I thought I would let you know!

    Apple is definitely leaving money on the table by not,

    Same with 12.9 gen 2 (even though i use gen 1 case with its compromise of flash blocked pretty much, and a mic blocked which doesnt matter to me)

    ..but as ive said before, probably not since it ensures additional sales of replacement iPad costs when people break theirs in a drop or accident

    The inside material is the same as the outside. I’ve had one on an Air 2 and it doesn’t scratch the body of the iPad. It’s kind of a pain to remove the cover though.

    Why is it a pain? Is it just really tight?

    You have to flex it and run the risk of cracking the case.

    It is the silicon inside (no microfiber) - I have had it on my iPad for a few months no and just took it off and it looks perfect still. It is a snug fit and I don't believe anything could get between the iPad and case to scratch it really. Just my opinion though :)
