for Apple iPad mini

NewerTech The Pad Protector for iPad
Lightweight, stylish protection PLUS enhanced typing and viewing comfort.

With a luxurious, top grain leather exterior and smooth suede interior, The Pad Protector mini keeps your iPad mini fully protected and looking great!

The cover additionally functions like a "kickstand", providing both comfort and stability when typing. To make this a complete appearance protection kit, a screen protector and microfiber cleaning cloth are included.

*To ensure proper alignment of magnets for the iPad mini's "wake/sleep" feature after using the Pad Protector mini in the vertical position, the front cover should be pressed firmly and held in position until the cover is flat.

**Because the Pad Protector mini is made from durable, long-lasting top grain leather, a "break in" period is required for the case to provide maximum stability when using in the vertical "viewing" mode. For added stability, use gentle pressure when inserting the front cover into the case's rear flap.

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 the included microfiber cloth.

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: 2/5 Nice, but backwards August 13, 2018 I was always wondering why these were so cheap. Initially, I loved mine so much, I bought another one when it came on sale for a stupid low price. But then, as I became more of an iPad power user, I realized these units have a major design flaw. Basically, they are "backwards". Don't want to go into a long explanation, but they should have been designed with the home button cutout on the right hand, NOT the left. This becomes painfully obvious when you use your iPad.......then want to take a quick photo........go edit the photo......etc. Someone at NewerTech goofed on this one.
