Someone misjudged or measured once (instead of twice) before making this product. The new IPad Air does not fit into the plastic holder correctly (I had two corners that would not snap into the case). Also, the cover will not close completely. Fortunately, I ordered two different cases at the same time, and the second one is PERFECT. This one will be going back.
I have the same case for my IPAD Mini it fits great and it just what I wanted. So I ordered one for my new IPAD Air. The first case did not fit the air. The corners where you snap in the IPAD so it's secure were too small. But, never fail, Overstock.com took it back right away and I got an exchange in 2 days. I was shocked on how fast I received the replacement. The new case is just great. The only think I would say, is they seem to be made a little cheaper feeling than the case for the mini. Maybe it's the size that makes the difference. Happy Shopping
