My first iPad (which I don't have anymore) had an Apple brand Smart Cover which held onto the iPad with magnets.

It was very convenient as you could easily remove and reattach the Smart Cover in a few seconds.

My current iPad is an iPad Air 1 (model number A1474) and I am looking for a similar magnetic Smart Cover, one whose hinges attach magnetically to the side of the iPad without needing the iPad to be in a case.

Was there ever such an accessory?

  • Perhaps you should be on ebay.

Yes, they did. In fact, you can still buy them here:
