Following today’s announcements, Apple has refreshed its Smart Cover and Smart Case accessories for iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3. The Smart Covers are made of polyurethane and come in seven vibrant colors, while the Smart Cases have a leather construction and are available in five neutral colors.

Designed to fit the 6.1mm form factor of the iPad Air 2, Apple is selling its Smart Covers and Smart Cases at $39 and $79 respectively, with the iPad mini 3’s versions being $39 and $69 respectively – the iPad mini 3’s leather Smart Case coming in as $10 cheaper than its Air 2 counterpart.


All editions of the iPad cases include “wake on open” and “sleep on close” features, along with keyboard and FaceTime stand positions for propping an iPad. The leather Smart Cases offer additional full-body protection, as they shield the back of the device from dust and scratches.

The new Smart Covers and Smart Cases for iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 can be purchased through Apple’s iPad accessories page.
