The Smart Cover and iPad 2 were made for each other. Literally. Built-in magnets draw the Smart Cover to iPad for a perfect fit that not only protects, but also wakes up, stands up, and brightens up your iPad. ThatÂs not just smart. ItÂs genius.
iPad 2 is thin, sleek, and flat-out amazing. So why hide it in a bulky case? The slim yet sturdy Smart Cover protects your iPad screen without covering up its durable aluminum back.1 So your iPad still looks and feels like an iPad Â just with a little extra protection. Even better, the Smart Cover doubles as the perfect movie-watching, game-playing, web-surfing, do-it-all companion. It folds in all the right places so you can quickly create a stand that holds iPad upright. Or one that lets you tilt iPad into a comfortable typing position. If you prefer to hold iPad, the Smart Cover flips back and out of the way like a page in a magazine. And if you want to shoot some HD video on the fly, the Smart Cover folds in half to expose the back-facing camera. Now thatÂs something to smile about.
A magnetic attraction.
When the Smart Cover and iPad get together, you canÂt help but notice an instant connection. ThatÂs because we designed iPad to work with the Smart Cover Â and the other way around. For starters, iPad has magnets built right into its frame Â magnets that align perfectly with the Smart Cover hinge for an effortless fit. On the opposite side, magnets inside the Smart Cover help it stay put. ItÂs ingenious yet simple. Secure yet easy to remove. In fact, the Smart Cover and iPad work so well together, itÂs easy to think of them as one device.
An on-again, off-again relationship.
The Smart Cover makes iPad do things no other cover can. Close it, and iPad automatically goes to sleep. Open it, and iPad instantly wakes up Â no need to press any buttons. The Smart Cover doesnÂt just protect iPad, it keeps it ready to go whenever you are.
