The black Macally Protective Case for iPad mini is a hardshell case designed to fit over the Apple Smart Cover (sold separately) on your iPad mini for enhanced protection of the back of the tablet. Additionally the case doesn't cover the iPad mini's internal speakers; in fact, it directionally reflects the sound towards the user.
