HT204158 Can the Smart Cover be used to support the ipad in the vertical position?

Can the Smart Cover be used to support the ipad in the upright vertical position?

It can, but its not very secure, and only in a completely vertical position i.e 90 degrees.

  • How to use the Smart Cover for FaceTime and Videos?

    Hi,
    I bought a new iPad recently with a Smart Cover. I find the Smart Cover very good for typing, at the low angle. The angle is very nice, it feels very comfortable and it allows fast typing. But then what is called the FaceTime/Video angle seems way too steep for me, like 80 degrees. I need to be like 3 meters away, at least, to watch a movie correctly or to be captured by the FaceTime camera. I'm rather tall but still, I don't really get it. I thought for the first couple of days that I was folding the cover in a wrong way but it seems not.
    Am I the only one to experience this issue? Or is there another way of folding the cover to get a correct angle? I haven't tried another Smart Cover but I would doubt that mine is faulty. But if it is how the Smart Cover is designed, I'm surprised that Apple went with that, I mean, I can't see the use of this angle, if you need to be so far away from the iPad. I actually bought one (and the Smart Cover) to use it as a support for books/tutorials when I'm coding on my Mac, and I'm finding that I can't find a place for the iPad with the cover on my desk because it ends up to be too steep anywhere I place it...

    My experience is the same as yours (and everyone else's, I suppose.)
    Other than the various ways you can fold it, Smart Cover is not adjustable.
    This link shows what Smart Cover can do.
    You have already found the best workaround for Smart Cover: reposition yourself, the iPad, or both so the camera view shows what you want in the picture.
    You decide the best location for your iPad while you capture video.  Because iPad connects wirelessly, you need not worry about dangling cables.

  • Will the smart cover damage the other side of the screen?

    I notice that the smart cover magnetically attaches only on one side of the ipad. However, i on a number of occassions left the smart cover in a position where it made contact with the other side of the ipad where it doesnt magnetically attaches. When this happens, the screen blanks out for a moment, until i get the smart cover out of the way. Can someone enlighten me on does this blanking out of the ipad screen or having magnetic stuffs touching the ipad damage any parts of the ipad? Thank you so much for joining this discussion!

    No, the minor magnetic interference of the cover will not damage the device. Rest easy

  • My ipad3 slid down the Smart Cover and now glass is cracked. What can I do?

    My Ipad 3 slid down from the Smart Cover and the glass is now cracked. What can I do?

    Accidental damage isn't covered by the warranty (unless you are in the US and have AppleCare+ which I think covers 2 cases of damage for an excess). I don't know what country that you are in, but in the US the price for repair (i.e. replacement) for the iPad 3 is (from here) $299, and here in the UK (from here) £256.44 . Are you need to an Apple store that you could go into ?

  • Can i turn off the smart cover auto lock?

    Yes.  Go to Setting/General/iPad Cover Lock/Unlock and set it OFF.

  • Hi, I'm currently browsing the web looking for a case that is compatible with the smart cover for the iPad 2. If anyone has any suggestions I would be glad to read all opinions! Thanks!

    Hi, I'm currently browsing the web looking for a case that is compatible with the smart cover for the iPad 2. If anyone has any suggestions I would be glad to read all opinions! Thanks!

    I love the Smart Cover. It fits the way I work and I love the instant on/off and the always available screen protection. I wouldn't use my iPad without it.
    I got a Cover Buddy for the back, because I wanted the back to be less slippery when I'm using the iPad in the classroom, teaching. I picked this back cover because it's VERY lightweight, easy to get on or off and, protects the corners, has accurate cutouts for the ports, and (in the colors) has a rubberized surface:

    I have a Built NY "hoody" slip on case with a hard internal shell that I use when I'm in the field and I can put the iPad with the Smart Cover and the Cover Buddy inside this . But for everyday use, the Smart Cover with the Cover Buddy is a terrific combination.

  • Why does the coating of my iPad 3 is faded by the magnetic connection of the smart cover?

    Hello!
    I can recommend you do the following:
    1/ Quit Mail completely via the Mail-menu
    2/ Open the Finder and find the go-menu near the top left corner of your computer display (not the Finder-window) Choose go to folder.
    Copy-paste the following line into the field that appears, including the ~ :
    ~/library/mail/v2/maildata/
    3/ Move all files that start with "envelope" and "ExternalUpdate" to the trash. Don't empty the trash in case we need to restore these files (which is not likely, but still)
    4/ Restart OS X. Open Mail. Now it will re-import your existing mail. Is your issue solved after this?

  • What does the Smart Cover do? Shut it off or just standby as the lock button?

    Hi:
    Is the Smart Cover any must to have? Isn’t standby/turn off/lock the iPad 2 with the Smart Cover the same as pressing the lock button? What does it really do the Smart Cover to the system?
    Thanks!

    The smart cover puts the iPad to sleep when it's over the screen, as soon as you lift it up it turns on. You can also use it to prop up your iPad

  • Any better cases than the "smart" cover?

    I just got a new iPad 2. I really like the iPad 2, but really dislike the "smart" cover, and I'm sorry I got that.
    It's definitely connected correctly, but has already fallen off half a dozen times on the very first day.
    Neither the small tilt for typing nor the tall angle for viewing positions are particularly stable, and they are hard to set.
    It doesn't handle well when open and using.
    I just don't feel confident or "protected" using it.
    I liked my old iPad 1 Apple black case. It was very functional. Anybody know of something similar for the iPad 2 with appropriate cutouts?
    I can't believe this idea made it off the drawing boards.
    Anyway, any suggestions for something similar to the iPad 1 Apple black case would be appreciated.
    Thanks,
    doug

    Try this, it's design is pretty similar to the original iPad case. (Which I quite like too)

  • HT1665 does the smart cover fit on both the new iPad and the iPad 2?

    I have both the iPad2 and i just got the new iPad and I'm wondering if I could put on the smart cover that i was using for my iPad 2 on the new iPad.
    Thankyou very much,
    Yours truley,

    it depends on when you bought the smart cover -Apple changed the polarity of the magnets on the new iPad - Smarcovers bought in late 2011 or 2012 should work - those bought before then will not - for awhile Apple was offering exchanges for free on smart covers that dont work on the new iPad - dont know if they still are - you can call an Apple store or Apple online

  • My smart cover is not working on my new iPod 3 ( wifi 4g ) even the smart cover option is not in my setting menu but mIn my wife device it is working good would help me

    The setting for iPad cover lock/unlock is in settings > general for iPad 2.
    The iPad 2 and new iPad if both are using iOS 5.x or later the setting exist in settings > general.
    So, if you worked at an apple store I think you should have known that the setting exist.
    You are right, a hard reset (force restart) should only be used if iOS device is unresponsive or apps crashing...etc.
    But, a simple restart helps as well.

  • Is there a protective travel case for the iPad2 that will cover the smart cover as well?

    Is there a protective travel case for the iPad2 that will cover the smart cover as well?

    There are a variety of well-made sleeves from SF Bags which will accommodate the Smart Cover. I'm partial to the neoprene bags and sleeves from Bult NY and I use this "hoodie" netbook sleeve (in black) for extra protection when I'm traveling or in the field because it has a rigid shell to protect the back and sides:

    For everyday, I slip my iPad, with the SmartCover on, into a small neoprene messenger bag, whose 6 pockets hold my iPad, a wireless keyboard (in a sleeve from SF Bags), Kindle, iPad, and cables /chargers:

  • Does the Smart cover stays on the new iPad?

    Does the magnets can stays on the new iPad or are incombatible?

    The Smart Cover will stay on the New iPad.  There have been reports that the magnets is some may not turn the screen on and off, but it will certainly fit and provide protection for your screen.
