    Not to be a jerk but I'm happy that didn't buy a smart cover after hearing about these issues

    A pic is necessary for a thread like this.

    Both of my smart covers have been gray. I'll send a pic shortly.

    The pic I included shows the already alcohol scrubbed magnet side of the hinge. There was quite a bit more of a carbon-like substance before cleaning. Only one small spot remains after cleaning.

    Yes I had a mark like that on my smart cover as well. It's on the inside so I wasn't sure what to try to clean it. I'm not using my smart cover anymore anyways but would like to sell it.

    Just this morning I noticed a burn stain on the magnet and case. This seems like an issue if it being noticed more and more. I've attached a photo. Any ideas on what to do about this?

    Seems to me a real issue here. When i post it the thread here, i was like it's just me having that stain issue, however more and more are posting same issue. Be sure to check the magnet piece on your smart cover for those who have one.

    Ok, so I wiped the mark off yesterday but it is back again today. Also when I feel the mark on the case, I can feel a tiny raised dent, almost like a weld mark. I think what we are experiencing is a small arcing of electricity from the case to the cover. This appears to be bad. Would really like to see something from a moderator. Hopefully apple is seeing this or is aware of the issue. I think I might visit the apple store and try for a replacement iPad this weekend.
