When Apple first introduced the new iPad 3 in the 2012 media event, we've seen the company releasing a bunch of great smart covers made for iPad 3 (Designed by Apple) and I could say, these covers were so awesome and valuable for me.. I still own a smart cover until now. Today YouTube user Unbox Therapy today posted a video which allegedly shows off Smart Covers for the iPad 5 in a bunch of vivid colors.
The video is so great, it shows a new iPad 5 smart cover and it is totally different from the last one.. This time it is weightless, colorful, new awesome stands for your iPad...
All of these features and more forced me to post the following video clip:
A few observations…
Firstly, Apple could be looking to offer Smart Covers for the iPad 5 in eight distinct colors: red, pink, orange, green, black, white, blue and gray, the latter fitting the leaked Space Gray finish (below) perfectly.
Also if we looked closely in the pictures above and the video, we will notice that these covers have three panels instead of four, just like the smart cover designed for the iPad Mini.
Lastly, the iPad mini’s Smart Cover lacks the metal hinge because the magnets are located inside the cover itself. In this video, the metal hinge is curiously present. This could point to no change in the iPad 5′s Smart Cover design.
As a result of these engineering changes, the iPad 5′s display should draw considerably less power compared to its predecessor, the iPad 4. Coupled with the skinnier side bezels, power-efficient A7 chip and updated battery technology, the aforementioned advancements should enable Apple engineers to design a thinner yet more powerful device.
Anyway, does these smart covers looks good for you or not ?
