The two digital cameras on the new iPad 2 include a front-facing VGA camera and a rear-facing digital camera to record HD video in 720p resolution, bringing the innovative Face Time feature to iPad users for the first time. Though the Apple iPad 2 is thinner, lighter, faster and packed with new great features, the iPad 2 still delivers up to 10 hours of battery life. With the two new digital cameras, users of the new iPad 2 can easily share pictures and video with family and friends through FaceTime, where already millions of iPhone 4, iPod touch and Mac users make use of. Users can simply apply visual effects to their photos by using Photo Booth, which includes 8 special photo effects like Squeeze, Twirl and Kaleidoscope.

Without making the Apple iPad 2 thicker, the screen of the new iPad 2 can be protected with the new Smart Cover. The Smart Cover is made by Apple and works through an easy to use self-aligning magnetic hinge; waking the iPad 2 when it's opened, and putting the iPad 2 to sleep when the Smart Cover is closed. A soft microfiber lining helps to keep the display of the iPad 2 clean. The Smart Cover comes in handy when typing of viewing videos, as you can fold the Apple iPad 2 into a stand. The Apple iPad 2 Smart Cover accessory will be available in a range of colors for just $39 / €29 or rich leather for $69 / €49.
