    This is the one I will get for my iPad mini Retina: iPad Mini Case w/ Origami Smart Cover | Versacover Mini Grey | Moshi. I have read that it has a magnet so that when the smart cover is folded completely flat behind the iPad, it stays in place. The Apple Smart Case does not have this feature. Please note that the Moshi VersaCover Origami case that is currently shipping is compatible only with the original iPad mini. A new version for Retina iPad mini will be released soon.

    Do any of the cases out there have the opening for the rear microphone? I picked up a Photive case and the rear microphone is covered. Looking at closeups of various cases on Amazon, I haven't seen any with that opening (as far as I can tell from the photos). I haven't seen the Apple case in person - is there an opening on that one?

    I ordered a Canvas from Switcheasy, I love their cases.
    The Canvas on my iPad 3 has been great so I ordered last year's mini case for the retina mini.
    The retina mini arrived last night, but I haven't opened the mini or tested the case. I'll hope to tonight.

    I imagine Switcheasy will release a new version to accommodate the slightly thicker chassis and backside microphone.

    If you look at the Apple case online, you can see a hole on the back.

    I already ordered it before I have my mini in my hands, I spoke to Switcheasy directly, and they told me there will be no new mini cases and it will fit fine, I hope they're right. xD

    We just received the Poetic case from Amazon, it does have a cut out for the rear mic.

    Hello, I just ordered the rMini LTE and was wondering if anyone has purchased the Monoprice duo cases and if they fit the rMini.

    I picked up the Logitech Folio Keyboard case from Best Buy.

    I don't like the viewing angle. It's too vertical. It might widen a bit if the joint loosens up, but I don't know.

    Typing is pretty rough. The shift, ', and delete keys are particularly hard to use because of the abnormal proportion size.

    And the case is not easy to get on and off quickly. So if I just want to hold the tablet, it takes some prying.

    Really don't like the case, so I'm going to return it. I think I'll just stick with a smart cover and my K810 BT keyboard.

    I still think they Zagg Keys Case and Zagg Keys Folio are the best keyboard cases for iPad mini at the moment. But I've got an iPad mini with retina and other people have commented here (and in other places) that there could be an issue with the mini with retina because it's a shade thicker than the iPad mini 1. However I can't see anyone demoing this issue on YouTube or on photos anywhere.
    Would anyone here have direct experience of these two cases with the iPad mini with retina that they would case to detail? Photos? Video?
    According the the Zagg website official product pages, the cases are NOT compatible with mini retina version. But I'm not sure if that is just to get people to buy what I assume will be a new model in the future or if it's genuine?
    Thanks. Jon.

    I got the rocket fish black leather with a elastic strap. Taking it back tomorrow. Adds way too much bulk and no magnets to auto on/off. Haven't decided on the apple cases or some other one.

    Most cases I saw and tested were just ugly or made the iPad Mini too fat

    The best case I found and use is the DodoCase, which is really awesome, trust me 😱

    I think that this is the iPad Mini case that I'm going to get. Tell me a little more about your experience with this case? What do you like the most about it? Have there been any issues?

    I have one and although I like it, I wish that I had looked at some other case first.

    I bought the Spigen Tough Armor case. It seems to be great so far.
