As observed by MacRumors, Apple has silently updated the iPad 2 Smart Covers with some color and material adjustments. Apparently, Apple has discontinued the orange polyurethane cover and has replaced it with a new dark gray cover. The interior color has also been changed from a uniform gray to match the color of the cover’s exterior. The source also claims that the colors on the polyurethane models are now more vibrant.
Here is a brief overview of changes made to Apple’s Smart Covers lineup:
- Interior color now matches exterior color. The interior side of the Smart Cover facing the iPad screen had previously been a uniform gray color on all models with the exception of the (PRODUCT) RED version. All Smart Covers are now a consistent color inside and out.
- More vibrant colors for polyurethane covers. Aside from the replacement of the orange cover with a dark gray one, sources indicate that the colors on the polyurethane models are now more vibrant. Polyurethane Smart Covers come in blue, green, pink, light gray, and dark gray.
- Color adjustment on navy leather cover. Apple offer five different leather Smart Covers, and sources reports that Apple has slightly tweaked the color on the navy version to make it “more navy” than the original version. All other colors (tan, black, cream, and red) remain unchanged.
Pricing for these covers however remains the same with polyurethane covers costing $39.00 while the leather ones still selling for $69.00
