Just as the iPad mini has shrunk down in size, Apple’s Smart Cover has done likewise to protect the iPad mini’s 7.9-inch screen. The biggest difference from before is that the metal hinge that snaps onto the iPad’s side has been replaced by a new design that essentially wraps the device in a single piece of polyurethane material.
The cover that wakes up, stands up, and brightens up iPad has been redesigned for iPad mini.11 And what a smart pair they are. iPad mini and the iPad mini Smart Cover, that is. Magnetic technology built into each one really pulls them together. The Smart Cover snaps perfectly into place to protect your screen — without adding bulk. Open the Smart Cover and your iPad mini wakes up. Close it and your iPad mini goes to sleep. Fold the Smart Cover and it becomes a stand. It’s all just so, well, smart.
The iPad mini Smart Cover will come in 6 colors and retail for $39. Check out the official Apple video after the break.
