What Is iPad Airplay?
What is iPad Airplay?, well simply Airplay allows you to play music wirelessly. Just like Airprint you need a compatible device, in this case speakers. This is done on the same wireless network your iPad uses but unfortunately theres not that many compatible devices on the market at the moment. If you don’t have a compatible set of speakers you can buy Airport Express which attaches to your speakers allowing you to stream music to your speakers.
You can also stream music, movies and photo’s to an Apple Tv (second generation) from your iPad. Although the iPad does a great job of showing movies, sometimes you may want to watch the movie on a larger screen.
Apple iPad Smart Cover
The Apple iPad Smart Cover is an intuitive cover designed specifically for the iPad 2. It’s design comprises of 21 magnets that coincide with the 10 magnets in the iPad 2 to make it a perfect and stable fit every time.
The cover folds into a triangular shape and allows the iPad to be sat at a raise angle (ideal for typing) or sat up in the landscape orientation sturdily (ideal to watch movies).
The iPad smart cover also has another magnet that interacts with the iPad 2 by sending the device into standby mode when the cover is closed, saving on time and more importantly battery life.
All-in-all a very worthwhile purchase, currently listed on eBay brand new for around $24.99/£19.99/ €34
