    Hello to all,

    Although I have enabled the function it's not working when I open / close the cover...

    Any tips on that

    Thanks

    Test the iPad with a refrigerator magnet about 1/3 the way down from the top (power switch) on the side with the volume rocker switch & lock switch.
    It should turn the screen off. You can also test the cover with a steel paper clip to see if the magnets are good.
    Did you purchase the smart cover from Apple or is it a copy?
    I bet the smart cover is either installed backwards or it's not really a smart cover.

    The screen is off when I close the cover but when I open it is not locked

    It's an original smart cover

    I also have the same problem. But mine is worse. I reckon that maybe it is related to the smart cover problem. When i lock using the lock button on top of the iPad, the screen will lock. But when I unlock the screen it did not prompt for pass code. It will just unlock my screen. Do u guys think it is related? I already set my pass code. It will only prompt to key in the pass code after the timer lock has passed.

    The weird thing in mine is that I can hear the lock sound but the iPad remains unlocked

    Same problem here...

    A good way to test the hardware is to use a passcode. If the passcode box comes up when you lift the lid, the hardware is fine. This appears to be a software bug, probably related to a recent update.
