I see no new case on the Apple site. What are you seeing that makes you think there's a new case from Apple?

I don't see it either. Wonder if there will be a price difference between the two, with microfiber or without. Probably won't be though. :-/

Yeah...I can buy great quality LARGE microfiber cloths from Frys for 5 bucks for a package of 5....which means that Apple will charge at least 10 bucks extra for the one with the microfiber cloth included!

Hmmm, I don't have a frys here in FL either! food and frys....

I noticed that, I just bought a case last week here in Mexico and it came with a big cleaning cloth, like the one that came with my iPod touch 1G but the size of the case.

It's an automatic product replacement. It costs the same.

Is there a link or article discussing the new apple case?

I don't think the case itself is new. It looks like they just added the piece of cloth.

You need to provide some sort of proof for this claim. Here's the Apple Store website list of the case:

Here are the features of the iPad Case:

Soft microfiber interior
Reinforced panels for structure
Lightweight enough to carry anywhere
Folds horizontally or vertically to hold iPad at an angle for viewing video or typing on the onscreen keyboard
Holes for headphone jack, dock connector port, and on/off and volume buttons


I don't see anything different.

Since you removed the part number kinda hard. Not particularly interested since if it's not in the description from Apple themselves then I kind of doubt there is any change.

Why are you being just a jerk?, like I said I bought the "new" case last week and it does come with a cleaning cloth, also I just checked the box and it has the new model number (MC361ZM/B)

I wasn't intending to be a jerk, just very skeptical. I didn't realize your post indicated that you had bought one. Seems strange that they would change it but not update the description on the Apple website. There's no change other than the cloth?

I didn't remove anything. If you had read the thread, you would have seen the two part numbers.

You're right. I thought the parts numbers were in the first post but they weren't. Sorry about that.

Big deal.

So now they give you a cheap microfiber cloth to go with Apple's flawed case. There are so many other much better options out there...and you can get a STACK of higher-quality cleaning cloths for next to nothing elsewhere.

I have the Apple case...in addition to the Yoobao Magic; the Chinao; the Yoobao slim and the Cyber Acoustic case...and, by far, the Apple case is my least favorite, for the same reasons as have been discussed on this forum.

...but to each his own...

Bumping an old thread.

Is the cloth for wiping the iPad screen (safe?), or is it for cleaning the case?

Don't want to spend $8 on a ShaggyMac cloth if this works fine for the screen.
