Apple Releases Smart Cover and HDMI Cable for iPad 2
By on March 2nd, 2011

Along with the iPad 2, Apple also introduced a couple of new accessories for the iPad 2 an HDMI out cable and a cover. The HDMI Out cable will allow users to mirror content from the iPad to their HDTV in full HD resolution, while charging the device!

The cable works with all existing apps and supports rotation as well. The cable will set back users by $39. However, it is the ‘Smart’ cover introduced by Apple for the iPad, which is truly a must have.

This new cover from Apple covers the front of the iPad, and when users open the cover, the cover automatically wakes up the iPad. The cover puts the iPad back to sleep when users put it back on. The cover is made up entirely from magnets, which automatically grasp the iPad 2 and auto-align themselves.

The inside of the cover features a micro-fiber cloth, which cleans the screen of the tablet, whenever you close it. The new cover will be available in five colors including pink, and will be made up of either polyurethane or leather. The polyurethane cover will set you back by $39, while the leather cover will cost users $69.

As of now, it is unknown whether this new ‘Smart’ cover from Apple will be compatible with the original iPad or not.

    Will the hdmi out accessory be compatible with the original ipad as well, or only the ipad 2? It works through the 30-pin connector, so I wonder how it could be limited to just the pad 2… Any information on this would be greatly appreciated!

      Will work with all current generation devices (i.e. iPad, iPhone4, 4th gen Touch)!

      Although 1080p output is only supported on the iPad 2 (so 720p on everything else).
