About the iPad Smart Cover

The iPad Smart Cover is a thin cover that protects the iPad screen. The Smart Cover connects to your iPad with magnets.    

You can fold the Smart Cover into a stand. When you open the Smart Cover, you'll wake your iPad. When you close the Smart Cover, your iPad will go to sleep. The microfiber lining inside the Smart Cover helps keep the screen clean.

When you use a Smart Cover, always pick up your iPad directly—don't try to pick it up by the cover. The magnets are not designed to lift the iPad.

You can get an iPad Smart Cover for these devices:

  • iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad with Retina display, iPad (3rd generation), iPad 2
  • iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2, iPad mini
