    Was thinking about buying a new navy smart cover because I've never been happy with the colour of the old one. I couldn't find a comparison picture online to decide if it was worth getting. I ordered one with the black friday saving and received my new Navy Smart Cover in the mail today.

    Here's a comparison


    New Navy Smart Cover, Old Navy Smart Cover, Black Smart Cover (for reference)

    That's the leather one, right? The new one looks way better.

    I just got the new dark grey Smart Cover it's pretty nice. Ordered a Switcheasy Coverbuddy and had to order black as they don't have one to match the dark grey.

    Are you buying from eBay? Or a box store?

    Hmm I personally like the old one more - which is what I have.

    The difference is night and day like mentioned, but I have the old blue and personally love it. I have not seen the new one in person though, so I may be swayed.

    When did Apple come out with new colors? I just bought a blue one about a month ago. To anyone looking to buy a smart cover, it is the get decision ever! I also have an Incase smart feather with it, but the blues are slightly different. Could this be why?

    They redid the covers back in October, I believe.

    The PU covers got brighter, they dropped the orange, and added dark gray. The navy leather got a brightness update, as well, and all of the linings match the outside, along with feeling more like suede than the original microfiber lining.

    I had a tan one but it got disgusting, so I tracked down an original navy the other day, so that it would match the navy switcheasy cover buddy I ordered.

    While I think the new navy one looks better, I'm glad I found an original, as it's darker and won't show grime as easily, which was the problem with my tan, plus it's closer in color to the cover buddy.

    Why are they selling ipad covers at Old Navy? I thought that was a clothing store.
