Apple Tweaks Smart Cover Line, Removes The Orange Color & Adds New Dark Gray Version

This morning Apple silently updated the MacBook Pro line, but it seems as though the Smart Cover line has also been updated. 9to5 Mac noticed that Apple has removed the orange polyutherane Smart Cover and added a new dark gray polyutherane color.

Apple has also tweaked the design of the Smart Covers with all the leather models now featuring a "color-matched microfiber lining". Other tweaks include more vibrant polyutherane colors and the navy leather Smart Cover receiving some color tweaks to become "more navy" according to MacRumors. Prices of both the polyutherane and leather Smart Covers remain the same at $39 and $69 respectively.
