The black iPad mini Smart Cover from Apple provides the same features and functions that the original Smart Cover did for previous versions of the iPad. This polyurethane cover protects the sensitive display of your iPad mini 1/2/3 against dust, dirt, and fingerprints. To use, simply fold the cover back as you might fold the page of a book. The cover is held by magnets that not only secure it in place but also activate your tablet’s wake and sleep functions. The cover also folds back into a neat little stand that will provide you with a more comfortable typing or viewing position.
