One More Reason to Buy a Smart Cover for your iPad

Written by Amit Agarwal on Jun 3, 2011

In case you missed it before, here’s the official Apple commercial for the iPad Smart Cover.

The Smart Cover sticks like a magnet to your iPad display or you can fold it as a stand for typing or watching videos.

There’s however one more reason why you may get for this Smart Cover – it may protect your iPad from breaking in case the device accidentally slips out of your hands.

Square Trade, a company that offers insurance for Apple products against accidental damage, did a “drop test” to determine if a smart cover can protect the iPad. Well, with the smart cover on, the iPad successfully survived a drop from waist height. See video:

The Smart Cover is only available for the newer iPad 2 and not for the original iPad. Thank you Priya Shah for the tip.
