    The new iPad fits the Yoobao iPad 2 case perfectly and seems to work fine except the 'smart' is gone. That is, when I shut the case, the iPad does not shut off implying that the magnetic switch on the new iPad is in a different place (or deleted entirely) compared to the iPad 2.

    Can someone inform is this nice shutoff feature has been deleted or moved or what?

    There have been several reports of this kind of thing. It appears that many of the third-party "smart" cases either work only intermittently now or don't work altogether.

    Thanks. I have a new case ordered which is specific to the new iPad. I hope the smart feature works. It's one of those minor things which, now that I've lost it, I really miss.

    I have a Marware CEO case made for the 3. It doesn't work either. I have emailed their support for help but then read in a few places that this issue is happening to 3rd party cases and older apple smart covers.

    I posted in the support forum earlier to see if anyone has more details.

    I have the Targus Vuscape case for the "new" iPad and the sleep mode(magnetic shut off) works just fine when I close my case.

    I have the Yoobao for the New iPad on order. Should be here on Thursday. I expect the magnet has been revised to work properly. Meanwhile my old Yoobao is down the road with the iPad 2.

    I have a Spek brand case or the Ipad2 that fits my Ipad3 perfectly.
