We bought two brand-new iPad 2s and equipped one with Apple’s smart cover and one without. We did some drop tests from waist and shoulder height to see if Apple’s smart cover can protects your iPad. Watch the video to see what happens.
Smart cover iPad survives. Uncovered iPad suffers brutal damage.
Smart cover iPad breaks a bit — some cuts across the screen and breaks around the edges. The magnetic cover slipped off from the fall.
P.S. We don’t cover intentional damage like you see in the video.
