Apple has quietly rolled out a new iPad Smart Case which protects the back of the iPad unlike the previous Smart Cover.
From Apple Store’s description:
The slim-yet-sturdy iPad Smart Case protects your iPad screen and its aluminum back. So your iPad is fully covered on all sides. And colorful too.
Colours are polyurethane dark gray, light gray, blue, pink, green, and (Product) red. The Smart Case can fold up into a stand and automatically sleeps and wakes your iPad as you close and open the cover.
If you order the Smart Case from the online Apple Store, you can get custom laser engraving on the back of the case.
The Smart Case costs $49 and is available now on the Apple Store.
