Apple releases new Smart Case for iPad

Apple's new Smart Case wraps completely around the iPad

Apple made a variety of splashy announcements during the Worldwide Developers Conference keynote on Monday, and then quietly rolled out a few hardware updates on the side with no fanfare. Among those releases: A new iPad Smart Case, a well-rounded sequel to the Smart Cover that preceded it.

The Smart Case, currently available in polyurethane dark gray, light gray, blue, pink, green, and (Product) red, wraps completely around the iPad. Like the Smart Cover, it can fold up into a stand and automatically sleeps and wakes your iPad as you close and open the cover. But unlike the Smart Cover, it protects the back of your iPad, not just the front.

If you order the Smart Case from the online Apple Store, you can get custom laser engraving on the back of the case; that option isn't available for Smart Covers.

There are no leather Smart Cases available, either.

The Smart Case costs $49 and is available now. It works with the second- and third-generation iPad.

Brother RJ-4230B

I’m a tradesman who is on the road all of the time and whose car is his office. The RJ-4230B is ideal for me and makes a key part of my job much easier and also makes my business appear more professional. I would give it 4.5 stars out of 5. I highly recommend it to any other tradies who are looking for way to print documents for their customers.

Microsoft Office 365/HP Spectre x360

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
