Many new Apple iPad 3rd generation owners have been reporting problems with their third-party smart covers (the oneâ€™s that arenâ€™t made by Apple), the oneâ€™s which was originally Â made for the iPad 2. Â From thisÂ videoÂ below you can see:
The official smart covers (by Apple) also didnâ€™t work well with the new iPad, but Apple in a very short period of time, replaced the magnets with new ones that are compatible. This big problem that the owners face is, that the third-party smart covers donâ€™t lock their iPad 3.
This issue is getting more known day by day and all the accessories companies will be aware of it, and change the polarity of the magnet soon, so donâ€™t worry.
