Apple planning to one up MS with new iPad cover?



So perhaps I have read in too much on Apple's slogan where they are rumoured to be releasing the new iPads. The key word being "cover". I cant help but think Apple will be not only be releasing a updated thinner iPad with a A7X chip and fingerprint reader. But I think they will only come out with a better ipad cover that will incorporate intelligent functionality. I am not saying they will release a touch cover style keyboard...if they do the MS tribe will be in uproar! but I think they will definitely add something. I have the following ideas.. ipad cover with integrated solar charging or a touch cover that is opaque but parts of which can automatically go translucent to display glanceable notifications. What do you think?
