Apple's Brand New Smart Case for iPad Is the Worst Thing Apple Announced

By Casey Chan on at

Here's the worst thing Apple sneakily introduced today: an iPad Smart Case that's more of a crappy and shoddy iPad case than a slick Smart Cover. The new Smart Case covers the back and the front of the iPad in polyurethane. Eww.

It's like a condom for your iPad and I can't believe that Apple wants to douse the wonderful industrial design of the iPad in blue, green, pink or red (it also comes in black or grey). I can't believe that Apple is encouraging people to put a case on their iPad, nor that so many people are going to buy these stupid Smart Cases for their iPads so they can express themselves with ugly colours.

Ugh, whatever. It's supposed to be slim and works just like a Smart Cover (wake your iPad, use as a stand) and can be engraved too. It comes $50 for this iPad condom in the US, so expect to see it for around £30+ here. [Apple]
