This is an important message to anyone using an iPad 2. Apparently people can break into your password protected iPad by just using a Smart Cover. This was recently reported by 9to5Mac.
What the flaw allows:
The person who unlocks your iPad 2 will not have complete access to your iPad, but will be able to gain entrance to whatever you locked your iPad 2 on. If your iPad 2 went to sleep in Mail, Safari, Messages, Contacts, or Maps, you can imagine the sorts of personal information that can be viewed on your iPad.
So basically, anyone can break into your iPad and get to see your last opened app and play with your media.
This is how u break into an iPad 2 using a Smart Cover:
1) Lock a password protected iPad 2
2) Hold down power button until iPad 2 reaches turn off slider
3) Close Smart Cover
4) Open Smart Cover
5) Click cancel on the bottom of the screen
