I got my "3" today. Slipped it into the ZAGG Folio I had for my "2" fit was fine, closed well, don't need to spend another $30 on a new folio (sans keyboard).
Told its shipping in a few days
Another additional note. I understand why they haven't changed the hard case of the Folio. There's a foam pad underneath the felt which I think they probably just either removed or made thinner on the iPad 3. Which would allow for the extra thickness on the iPad 3.
They have not changed it.. I was at Best Buy today and they had the black ones and they look exactly the same.. but these were were the Ipad 3
First post on this forum; stumbled upon it when I was researching the same issue. I traded up to the new iPad and was planning on having to replace my iPad 2 ZaggFolio as well, but I tried it out with the newest iPad and it worked just fine. The fit was snug, but I definitely did not get the feeling like I was having to "force" it into place, otherwise I would have stopped at the risk of damaging my iPad and/or ZaggFolio. It closes securely just as it did before with the iPad 2 and looks virtually identical when in use.
My suggestion: keep the iPad 2 ZaggFolio if you already own one and save your money. I ordered the new model for the iPad 3 before testing my old one out, but now that I know it works, I am returning it so I can put half of a tank of gas in my car instead :D
Hope this helps.
Well, I have found and Issue with the iPad 2 case with an iPad3 The magnets don't work in the case. Apple changed the magnet configuration and made them polarity sensitive. Closing the case does not turn the display off.
Update, I went in and CAREFULLY pried off the slim panel covering the compartment that housed the magnet on the ZaggFolio 2. Changed the Polity and now it works. They have two magnetized pieces of metal that are stuck together. I reversed them around and changed the polarity and now it works with the iPad 3. :)
PS, the magnets where tiny. I remember on the old case I had to wiggle the case when it was closed a bit to match up the magnet in the case with the iPad. I beefed up the case Magnet a bit by cutting out a piece of flexible magnet and stuffed it behind the ones in the case and now it works even better. :)
richgalen, does your iPad shut off when you close it?
