New iPad Smart case now protects the back

updated 07:15 pm EDT, Mon June 11, 2012

New case fully covers iPad in polyurethane

In addition to the new Mac hardware and the iOS refresh, Apple has made a smaller announcement today: the Apple-produced Smart Case has been redesigned. Changes to the case are small, but the accessory now covers the whole of the iPad while retaining the functionality of the original Smart Case.

The new Smart Case includes a polyurethane cover that protects the back of the iPad. It is available in six colors, and it can still be reshaped into a movie or keyboard-oriented stand.

Available on Apple's site for $50, the Smart Case can be laser-engraved free of charge.

    Not redesigned

    This is a brand-new product, as far as I can see, offered alongside the older iPad Smart Cover (which is still available in both polyurethane and leather).
