    Is anyone else disappointed about the fit of the case on the iPad 4? The huge hole at the bottom is affecting how the lightening connector fits on mine due to the angle :(

    That sux..........Wonder if they will come up with an upgraded case?
    I don't use the Smart case.........I have the Zagg-Folio bluetooth keyboard case. It fits perfectly on my iPad 4 same as it did on the iPad 3.

    I hope they do come up with a upgraded case. Got my ipad4 today and when I bought it I asked if the case on the ipad2 would work ok, he said yes. Well all things line up ok but it does not put the ipad to sleep when you close the lid, after some goggling I found out apple switched the magnets around so it will not work on the ipad4.

    I have this same problem. I ordered them both on launch day. I thought it would come with the smaller opening but I guess ...Moderator notice...please watch the language.... It is a pain in the butt tho cause the lightning connector is so easy to plug in on my iphone5 but for the ipad4 it's at a weird angle.

    You are correct, Yes it is turned on. Been reading some posts on this forum where they say it's a 50 50 shot if you have one of the older covers to work. I just ordered one on ebay for $8.50 shipping included, Can't beat the price, they say it is the new one for the ipad4. Thanks for your help.

    My smart case works great n puts my iPad to sleep fine, however the hole for the 30 pin connector looks dumb when u have a lightning connector. Also, it seems to mess with the angle of the plugging in. Idk y ur smart case isn't working? That's weird.
