The above video is supposedly of the new Smart Covers for the iPad 5. While there is no way to confirm if this leak is legit, if it turns out to be accurate, it reveals something intriguing about the next-gen iPad. The video seems to confirm earlier rumors that the next iPad will have a smaller form factor. In fact, when these new Smart Covers were placed on the rumored iPad 5 back case, they fit perfectly.
There is one extra thing of note within the video which could refute the whole thing. The Smart Cover for the current iPad has the metal hinge embedded within the material of the cover. However, the Smart Covers in this video seemingly leave the metal exposed. Apple is the king of design aesthetics, so it seems a bit suspect that they would take a backwards step like this.
What do you guys think? Is this real or fake?
