Gizmodo reports that you can break into any iPad 2 using its smart cover. From the shutdown screen, close and open the cover then click cancel. I tried it under iOS 4 and it didn’t work so I suspect it’s an iOS 5 only bug.
The folks over at Mission:Repair have noticed that their repair parts for the iPad have an existing hole in the metal frame that fits pretty much exactly the same camera unit as in the MacBook. The question is if it’ll be in there before the iPads are released, or if they were planning it to be in the next version (using the same frame), in which case will the revelation cannibalise sales of the current version (although many people have already said they’ll wait for version 2 at least anyway)?
