Launched alongside the new iPad, the Smart Cover provides protection for the iPad screen while maintaining its thin and lightweight profile. Designed with a unique self-aligning magnetic hinge that makes it easy to attach and remove, the new iPad 2 Smart Cover automatically wakes the iPad when it’s opened and puts it to sleep when it’s closed, and has a soft microfibre lining to help keep the screen clean. The cover also folds into a stand for typing or viewing videos and is available in either polyurethane or rich leather, in a range of colours.
