I got the new ipad mini retina and ordered this case for it. It has a hard plastic back to protect the aluminum from dings, magnetic closure just like the apple branded smart cases so it will auto lock and unlock with the flip of the cover and just just a fantastic product. I would gift and recommend this to anyone who likes the pattern (i got kiwi) and has an ipad mini. This is a perfect case.
I love this case!
I bought this case with my Birchbox points for my iPad Mini and it is amazing! It's so durable and I love that I can easily fold it to prop my iPad up both horizontally and vertically. The magnetic closure is also great, and it turns off the screen without me having to worry about it. I highly recommend this case!
