Apple intros full-wrap leather Smart Case for iPad, iPad mini

updated 04:13 pm EDT, Tue October 22, 2013

Case provides same functions as Smart Cover

Apple has introduced several new accessories for its new iPad Air and Retina iPad mini. The new Smart Case offers the same articulated screen protector as the existing Smart Cover, folding into a triangular shape for use as a tilted stand, however it also brings additional wraparound protection for the back of the tablet.

The Smart Case is also produced from leather, in contrast to the polyurethane construction of the Smart Cover. Color choices are also different, with options for brown and beige leather, though both the case and cover are available in brighter variations such as yellow or red.

The Smart Case will be available to order on November 1, with iPad Air cases priced at $79 and the iPad mini edition selling for $69.
