    Default Apple Quietly Refreshes iPad 2 Smart Covers


    On Monday, Apple updated its iPad 2 Smart Cover line. Although the changes are largely minimal, they are noticeable.

    Perhaps the most obvious change is the omission of the orange polyurethane cover, which, presumably, wasn't a big seller. In its place is a new dark gray Smart Cover. The remaining variety of polyurethane Smart Covers (blue, green, pink, and light gray) will remain the same, although the colors are said to be more vibrant now.

    The biggest change to the product line comes via the addition of color to the interior microfiber lining. Previously, no matter the color of your Smart Cover, the interior was the same unremarkable shade of gray. Now the inside color matches the outside. Apple's product page has already been refreshed to reflect the change (See above image).

    It should be noted, however, that the color tweaks come without a corresponding change in price. Smart Covers are retaining their former price points - That is, polyurethane covers are $39.00 while the higher-end leather covers are $69.00.

    This is good news. My blue polyurethane cover was very dull. Will probably take it in for a replacement now for the new one.

    I have a navy blue leather and red leather smart cover and they both have the inside matching the outside, I bought them both about six months ago.

    I wish the red cover would stop being product red so I could buy one without supporting a fake charity (60%ish of the "donated" money is used to advertise product red and also line Bono's pockets)

    If I want to donate ill donate directly to the charity and they'll get more money from me that way.

    The leather Smart Covers have had colored interiors from day one. It's only the polyurethane covers that had the gray interior.

    Agreed, Apple is stupid. And the author didn't mention red is still in production when that's the color of the one on the image..

    Default ??
    just checked the website, everything looks the same to me. The orange one is still there, and the linings on the poly euro-thane covers are still gray.
