iPad 2: How to use the iPad Smart Cover
The iPad Smart Cover is a thin, durable cover that protects the screen of the iPad 2. The iPad Smart Cover uses magnets to connect to iPad 2 and align for a perfect fit. It can also fold into a stand for typing, viewing movies, and making FaceTime video calls. Opening and closing the Smart Cover will wake and sleep iPad 2 and the microfiber lining inside helps keep the device's screen clean.
It is important to know that you should always pick up your iPad 2 by grasping the device itself—not the Smart Cover. To avoid the Smart Cover separating from the iPad and causing the iPad to drop, do not try to pick up the iPad 2 by the Smart Cover alone, because the magnets are not designed to withstand that type of force.
