There are various types of iPad covers available in the market today, all of them offering different levels of protection. Probably the most popular type of protective case for the iPad these days is the Apple Smart cover, this is so popular in fact that it almost rivals the popularity of the iPad itself. The Apple iPad Smart Cover automatically snaps onto the side of the iPad by the use of magnets and securely stays in place on the screen of the device. It can also roll up to serve as a stand for the iPad or to raise it slightly so as to make typing on the on-screen keyboard easier.

The only problem with the original iPad 2 Smart Cover is that it only protected the screen of the iPad and not its shiny case on the back. Fortunately there are also iPad covers that can protect the front as well as the back of the iPad. You can choose from a lot of different vendors, designs, and materials used.
