When the iPad 3 was launched, an optional intelligent frontal protection specifically made for Apple tablets was also introduced, which when folded, could also be used to support horizontal and vertical position of the tablet. This way it became a handy stand for reading, watching movies or typing on the Bluetooth keyboard.
The Smart Cover is much more than a simple iPad 3 cover – it is specially designed for iPad 3, thin and durable, attached with magnets and sits perfectly in place. It puts the iPad to sleep and wakes it up automatically. It has a lining of microfiber that keeps your iPad screen clean, and it adds color and a personal touch on your iPad.
The slim but sturdy iPad 3 Smart Cover protects your iPad screen without covering the rugged aluminium back. Thus, your iPad still looks and feels like an iPad – just with a little extra protection. Unlike some other models of iPad 3 cases, Smart cover adds almost no bulk to the overall thickness of the device.0
