Understanding the "Auto Wake/Sleep" function and the best case for it
Greetings :) I'm a new member here and this is my first post. I'd like to discuss with you guys the topic on the auto wake/sleep function similar to Apple's Smart Cover. I've recently bought a casing which claims to have this function but when inserting my new iPad, it doesn't seem to work. I googled around and seems like the magnet polarity or something isn't the same for the iPad 2 and the new iPad(3). That is as far as I could understand. Anyone here good enough to explain more in layman terms?
Anyway I've contacted the company (since they are good help I decide not to reveal thier name) and they said they have a fix for it but it's kind of an external fix. I'd need to add some kind of magnet (which they will send me for free) for it to work. So here comes my other concern, will adding a 'random' magnet around the iPad have any negative effect on the iPad itself? The last thing I want it to screw up my screen. What kind of "smart" question should I be asking them ? Say:
1) Are the magnets approved by Apple?
2) Does the magnet touch the screen?
Hope someone can enlighten me on this :) Thanks !
