    There doesn't seem to be much of a selection of cases for the iPad Pro. What's the best one you've seen so far?

    Whatever you get will be heavy do to the size. I purchased the rear Apple cover and the front Smart Cover and they do add weight. Ended up returning for the Logitech keyboard cover which was $11 more with my 10% discount. Not much heavier either.

    I like having just a slim simple sleeve. eBay has a lot of options but I suspect most are repurposed laptop cases. I'm going to get one anyway, they're like $10 and the case at the Apple store was $80, I'm not going to pay that. Bought a new sleeve for my old iPad for $4 shipped on eBay just this week, so won't be long until they have those in Pro sizes too.

    You probably know this, but I'll mention it just in case.

    Did you make sure to turn on the Lock/Unlock switch iin Settings > General. It only appears after the iPad has sensed a magnetic (smart) cover, and does not turn on by default (if memory serves).

    Yes, I had the settings set to on. I checked it and even reset the ipad to make sure it wasn't the tablet itself.
    I even called the company and they confirms that in their instructions they don't actually say it turns your screen on/off. The guy was kinda embarrassed and admitted the title was very misleading by calling it a 'smart' cover. I told him to be prepared to receive a lot of angry phone calls.

    Thanks. I just wanted to be sure, because, as you said, Smart Cover is a very misleading name.

    I feel sorry for the operators at the Modal company in the next few weeks. Hopefully reporting it early will get the "smart" name removed from the description.

    I noticed the description on Amazon mentioned nothing about compatibility with the Apple Pencil. If the built in screen protector is too thick it could affect its operation.
