I was looking for a cover for my new iPad Pro and was unsure of what kind to get. I went back and forth between a full cover (think Otterbox style), or the Apple Smart cover. I finally decided on the Apple Smart cover because it wasn't super-bulky and I liked the fact that it automatically wakes up from sleep mode by opening the cover.
I'm very pleased with the purchase I made. While I wish the cover did have a back to protect the entire device, I knew what I was purchasing prior to receiving the item, so I'm not going to deduct stars for that.
I would recommend this to anyone looking for a cover for their iPad Pro!
