Apple has actually presented brand-new Smart Covers and Smart Cases designed to accompany the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3 that it revealed this morning.
Smart Covers are offered in polyurethane, while the Smart Cases are available in aniline-dyed leather. Smart Covers for both the brand-new Air and the brand-new mini are available in Black, White, Pink, Yellow, Blue, Green, and (PRODUCT) RED. They are priced at $39.
Leather Smart Cases for the iPad Air 2 and the Retina mini 3 are available in Black, Midnight Blue, Olive Brown, Soft Pink and (PRODUCT) RED. Smart Cases are priced at $79 for the iPad Air and $69 for the iPad mini.
Leather Smart Cases for the iPad Air 2 can’t be acquired online yet, but the Smart Cases for the mini and the Smart Pays for both items can be bought and are offered to ship in one to 3 days. In-store pick-up choices are detailed as ‘Coming soon.’
As with all versions of Apple’s Smart Covers and Cases, these new products include sleep/wake capability and function as a mean the tablets when folded back. While old iPad mini cases will fit the iPad mini 3, Smart Cases for the initial iPad Air will certainly not fit the brand-new iPad Air due to its thinner profile. It is uncertain if Smart Covers for existing iPad Air designs will certainly fit the brand-new design, once more due to its smaller size.
