Right now, there aren’t any leather cases from Apple for its new iPhone 12 lineup of smartphones, but the company is working on that.
If you’re a fan of Apple’s premium leather cases, you may have been dismayed to see that despite launching several of the cases, the leather option isn’t one of them. Right now, if you visit Apple’s online storefront, you’ll see MagSafe accessory options like the Clear Case and Silicone Case. There is even the Leather Wallet for the iPhone 12 lineup, too. However, no full leather cases.
In Apple’s official announcement for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini, the company notes that leather cases are coming, though:
MagSafe chargers efficiently provide up to 15W of power, while still accommodating existing Qi-enabled devices. Charging solutions include the MagSafe Charger and MagSafe Duo Charger for use with iPhone and Apple Watch, as well as new silicone, leather, and clear cases that easily snap onto the back of iPhone, and a leather wallet. Customers can also expect innovative MagSafe accessories from third-party manufacturers.
MagSafe Charger, Leather Wallet with MagSafe, and iPhone 12 Silicone Case and Clear Case will be available beginning Friday, October 16. iPhone 12 Leather Case will be available beginning Friday, November 6. MagSafe Duo Charger and Leather Sleeve will be available at a later date.
Apple’s official announcement for the iPhone 12 Pro confirms the Leather Case will be available on that date, too.
That just means you’ll need to wait a bit longer to get your Leather Case — if you’re ordering the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro, of course. Those handsets go up for pre-order this Friday, October 16, and start shipping next week. First orders should start arriving on Friday, October 23.
