This is a replacement cover for my iPad 3. I had a previous cover, very similar, which after several years of use and abuse daily in my laptop bag, needed replacing. This item was priced great, and performs wonderful. It stands up well to use, and I've had virtually no problems.
This Case is made with new specs specifically for THE NEW IPAD (AKA iPad 3), accommodating the new thickness and a new sleep/wake function requirement, this is not an IPad 2 case re-advertised as IPad 3 Case. As you may know The New iPad is very similar in size to the iPad 2. However it is about 10% thicker than the iPad 2. Therefore if the case was originally made for iPad 2 and it was sold as an iPad 3 case, the case will not fit or even if you are able to force it in, it will still pop out easily or will be very difficult to remove later not to mention some of the iPad 2 cases's sleep function may not work for The New Ipad. This case was designed for The New iPad (iPad 3) exclusively and will fit with perfection with smart cover sleep functions and will also fit the smaller iPad 2 with full sleep/wake function. The magnetic cover is made to fit Apple The New iPad (iPad 3, 4G) and iPad 2. Built with magnetic strip that attaches the cover to iPad with ease. Also turns your iPad on and off when opened and closed. Act as a stand for multiple viewing angles. Allows you to prop your Ipad horizontally, vertically, and in a comfortable typing angle. Made with premium synthetic PU material exterior and micro fiber interior. This is a generic 3rd party product, it is not made by Apple. Compatible with Apple iPad 2, 3, 4; Does not work for iPad 1st Generation.
