IPAD PRO SMART Cover – Unboxing and Impressions!

IPAD PRO SMART Cover – Unboxing and Impressions!


Hey Everyone, how are you? So I needed an iPad Pro cover pretty badly
since getting my new iPad a few weeks ago. And what I’ve realized is that it’s pretty
hard to find a good cover right now. I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted. I kind of wanted the Apple sleeve but not
in leather format, in some sort of synthetic format. Couldn’t really find what I was looking
for though, so I decided to go and get the Apple iPad Pro SMART cover. This is the Apple branded one. I got it in charcoal. I think the options are charcoal and I think
you can get it in white as well. And I just got it right now at Best Buy. I had some Best Buy credit and so I used it
on this. Normally it costs about $59.99 which is a
little pricey. But here it is, and I haven’t opened it
yet, so let’s take a look. So on the flip side, it’s got some sort
of directions, I guess displaying the different ways you can use it. It comes in a pretty slim package, so I’m
going to go ahead and open that. Very nice, it folds right out. And here is the cover, it’s really think
actually. It folds into three dimensions. This is my first Apple SMART cover. I know that you can get it for most APPLE
devices, especially the iPads. But this is the first time I’m using it. It’s got sort of a felt, organic feel on
the back. Almost like a slight plush to it. What does it say here? “Designed by Apple in California. Assembled in China”. And the front, this is more of a rubbery feel
to it. And that’s really it, I don’t see much
else in the box. Yeah, wow. This is very minimal. In the actual package there is not much to
it. It’s literally just the SMART cover right
here. So I think this only gives protection to the
front size of the iPad Pro. I should mention this is the 12 inch, 12.9
inch iPad Pro 2 that just came out in June. And so this should fit right on there. What I don’t know is that, I don’t know
if this is a brand new cover, or this is the same cover that you could have used on the
12.9 inch iPad Pro 1, that came out a year an a half ago. So I’m not sure they actually released a
new SMART cover, or if this the same one that people have been using. What I do know is that the dimensions for
the new iPad Pro, and this is the iPad Pro 2 right here, are the same for the 12.9 inch,
from version 1 to version 2. So if you have the old SMARTcover, but want
to use it on the new iPad Pro 2 12.9 inch, you should be able to because the dimensions
are identical. So let’s give it a shot, see how it fits. I’m actually not sure how this slides on. It looks like it almost just hooks around
the iPad. Oh, it’s magnetic! Wow. So I don’t know if you saw that, but it’s
very magnetic. As soon as it sensed the edge of the iPad
Pro, it clicked right to it, which is pretty cool. That felt good. So there you go. It’s on the cover, it offers no protection
whatsoever to the back of the iPad Pro. You’re on your own for this. My plan is to probably get some kind of carrying
case. Really, I wanted a sleeve, I want some sort
of sleeve that I could put this into. But I think I’m going to go with the Smart
Cover now, and some sort of carrying case that I could slip the package into, to help
protect it when I’m traveling. But this looks good, okay. So it bends open, as soon as I bend open one
flap, the iPad is waking up. And that’s really nice. I’m going to have to figure out how to use
this. So if you using iPad, what’s nice is that
the magnetic part is really sticking to this very nice. And then you can work on it without scratching
the back up, by just folding it onto the back. So thats pretty cool, I’m pretty happy about
that. I wasn’t really excited about the Smart
Cover but now that I have it, it does feel more solid than I expected. This does not feel like it’s coming off. I don’t think its going to offer drop protection
in any way. But for general use, it feels much nicer. And it’s definitely much better than nothing
at all! So I’m pretty happy. Again you’re paying $60 for this, so your
mileage may vary. But lets fold it up and see how it looks in
landscape mode. I’m going to have to figure out how to do
this. But I guess you could work on it like that. Oh there we go. Okay, it clicked in, I don’t know if you
saw that, and now it feels pretty good to work on. So yeah, that’s pretty solid. So yeah, I think if you were going to do art
or something, and draw, or just browse the net, that’s not too bad. I’ll have to figure out how to use it, but
there you go, that’s the unboxing. Initial impressions: kind of nicer than I
expected, to be honest. I didn’t really want this. But there is not that many iPad options right
now for the 12.9 inch Pro, and this feels pretty good. It’s sort of nice material on the front
and back, it sits more solid than I thought. For $60, there’s not much, just this and
the package. But there you go. That’s the unboxing, thanks a lot for watching
guys, bye!

  1. Hi Ron, is that a matte glass screen protector or just regular tempered glass?
