Screen Protector Installation Guide

Step 1. Make sure there are no fans blowing in the room and let any dust settle from people movement for five minutes before starting the project.

Step 2. Begin preparing your iPad screen surface using a lint free wipe and solution kit similar to this: Clean and Polish Kit

Step 3. Obtain a ruler, credit card, Post-It note pad, or other stiff, small, and straight edged object to assist in applying the protective film.

Step 4. Start applying the protective film at the home button end of the iPad and gently work from that bottom upwards. DO NOT peel the protective film from the sheet it comes shipped on until it's near the edge of the surface of the glass. That keeps any contaminants from statically clinging to the screen protector.

Step 5. Work any bubbles from the center to the edge using your sourced straight edged object.

Step 6. Take care not to create any fingerprints on the edge of the protective film by not touching that surface edge.

Rating: 5/5 Replacement cover November 8, 2016 I finally got to the point where my Apple brand cover for my iPad 2 had outlived its usefulness. It was so old and so well used that the seams were coming apart and I was afraid that the iPad was going to fall out of it every time I picked it up. I spotted this item (only one left) on the garage sale and figured I had nothing to lose by purchasing it.

I am glad I did. It is so much more than what I had been using. It is durable, stylish and although bright red really isn't my color I am more than pleased with it. And it holds the iPad at a perfect viewing angle without slipping.

Rating: 3/5 Does the job February 20, 2016 I was mainly looking to protect the screen on my iPad and have the ability to toss it around more. The inner part where it folds has faded. Wasn't expecting much for the price I paid. Overall it does the job of keeping your iPad protected

Rating: 3/5 Nice folio if it fit better January 25, 2016 This would be an excellent folio case if the fit was better. It's seems the leather dried out and came out too tight width-fit for a Mini2.

Rating: 4/5 Leather takes some time to break in. May 9, 2013 I've been using this with my iPad 2 for a couple of months now and really does a great job at protecting the iPad from nicks and dings in my backpack. The leather feels good out of the box, and is getting even better over time.

I can tell already the leather is going to outlast the iPad. NewerTech used some heavy-duty cow hide on this one and, as a result, the break-in period has taken a bit longer than I would have liked.

For example, it took a while to get the leather to relax enough to get it to stand up as the main image on the page shows. Granted, I use it mainly in the "typing" position (cover tucked in to the flap, but flatter to the desk or my lap) so it isn't that big of a deal to me. In fact, i love that it is able to be propped up that way - keeps my lap cooler when using in my recliner than without.

But, more true to my usage, the magnets to wake/sleep the iPad do seem a bit fickle. I can't just let the case close as it will and rest assured that the iPad indeed went to sleep. I need to make sure the cover is centered on the iPad to assure proper sleep function. Not a deal-breaker on using the case, just something that I needed to get used to to prevent my battery depleting unnecessarily.

Overall, I'd recommend as the look and feel of the leather is fantastic and it provides great protection - even if it does take a bit of time to fully break it in.

Rating: 1/5 the worst case I've ever get my hands on May 8, 2013 The case looks good on the picture but in real life it does not serve the purpose. The slot for 30 pin ipad connector is not wide enough to fit camera kit adapter. The case is not stable. It flips when put in vertical position (see the video). The inside of the case gets dirty and unpleasant to touch after first use, it reminds of a piece of a sand paper. Low quality leather. When in closed position , the iPad does not turn off which is proof of bad design. The phone slot cut will not fit most of 3.5mm connectors. After "playing around" a bit with this case my wife and i decided to apply for RMA . it's now on the way back to OWC

Response from MacSales.com, Marketing May 9, 2013 Your Newer Technology The Pad Protector is made from fine quality genuine leather. The leather adjusts to both the device and individual habits of the user. If the overall usage and fit initially seems stiff, please allow a few days of use for the leather to adjust for improved functionality. Leather will stretch and tighten depending on the weather, temperature, humidity, and it does have a memory. If you find that your particular case does not stand up in a particular position, fold it backwards a few times on each of the fold lines in order to break-in the leather. This action may need to be repeated until the leather has been successfully trained. Additionally, leather will soften and improve over time, developing a rich patina that makes your The Pad Protector look and feel better the longer you use it.

Rating: 3/5 Not as well designed as I would have liked. June 19, 2011 The iPad slips out too easily on one side. Also, the quality of the workmanship could be better -- but for the price, it's more than adequate.
