Apple finally launches rear-protecting Smart Cover for iPad

The official Apple-approved way to keep your iPad pristine
The case comes in six different shades (light and dark gray, blue, green, pink, and red) and, naturally, features the same folding methods that allow a number of viewing and typing-friendly positions.
If you want a little extra protection, as well as the magnetic sleep-and-awake mechanism, you'll need to fork out £39.99 ($49.99). However, it does come with free laser engraving. Whoop.
Unsurprisingly the Smart Cover reveal wasn't deemed important enough for a mention during a bumper, fast-paced, yet almost excruciatingly long keynote address at this year's WWDC.
On the software side of things, we saw the full Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion software revealed, as well as the first look at iOS 6, complete with Facebook integration and a brand new homebrewed Maps app.
