    I've bought two in the past month, direct from Apple. Both are red on the inside.

    Angry Beware knock-offs on amazon!!

    I sent it back. There is no easy way to alert Amazon that there are merchants advertising the leather case and selling imitations! If the merchant refunds my money, then apparently they have not violated any rules of amazon.

    That doesn't seem right!

    Red smart cover and white iPad don't mix

    Red cover has stained my iPad. But I have a plastic protector so it has only stained the plastic. It is very stained and ugly. Any ideas about ridding the red stains from the plastic?

    I ordered my red leather smart cover from the Apple store when I ordered my iPad2. (The smart cover is red, front and back.) I've had them for three months now, and the red has never bled on to anything, even on the occasion of a few drops of water falling on to the cover and being wiped up.

    I don't understand how the dye is bleeding on to your plastic screen protector unless there was a whole lot of moisture involved, or unless (as others have suspected of covers they have purchased) you've somehow obtained a knock-off.

    At any rate, I love the red leather. I expect over time it will get better looking, as leather tends to do.

    The smart cover doesn't provide full protection in itself, it is the convenience of its ability to put your iPad to sleep and that it can fold to provide angled support, etc. that makes it desirable.

    I use a clear snap-on protector on the back of my iPad and transport it in a Cocoon case (Cocoon NoLita II CNS343 - Cocoon), so it is well protected.

    It is entirely possible that the aniline dye used for the smartcover will leach onto a polymer by direct diffusion. The problem lies in the quality of the specific dye used, and I believe Apple sells its leather smartcovers with a small-print warning that the dyes aren't fast. As a longtime leather owner, Apple's leather smartcovers are about low to middle-grade leather, and quite poor value for their cost.
