Apple’s Smart Cover is about as minimal as minimal gets, but recently mine has been getting a little slack — literally. Meanwhile, Miniot’s Mk2 wooden iPad cover looks like it may match Apple’s minimalism while actually working a lot better. Recently, I switched the screen-lock sound of my iPad 3 back on while troubleshooting another case, and left it on. Since putting the Smart Cover back on the iPad, I have been amazed at just how often the iPad clicks when the Smart Cover is supposedly closed. I put this down to the vinyl in the hinge area getting looser, but as I have never had the screen-lock sound on since about an hour after unwrapping the iPad 1, I wouldn’t know if it has always been like this.
