Hands-on video: Apple’s upcoming new leather cases for the iPhone 12 lineup

Ahead of the upcoming pre-orders for the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max, German-language blog Macerkopf.de had a chance to play with Apple’s new leather cases in all three iPhone 12 sizes, here’s the site’s short hands-on video.

The new cases will be available to order in three sizes — 5.4 (iPhone 12 mini), 6.1 (iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro) and 6.7 inches (iPhone 12 Pro Max) — beginning Friday, November 6.

Here’s a machine-translated excerpt from the original post:

The first impression is that the covers are made of high quality and lined with a kind of suede. The outside offers a smooth but non-slip surface. MagSafe is on board and worked smoothly in an initial test.

Apple will be offering new silicone, leather and clear cases for the new iPhone 12 lineup, plus a leather wallet that snaps onto the back of the phone thanks to MagSafe technology.

Macerkopf.de previously had a chance to play with the silicone cases, here’s that video.

The MagSafe charger, the MagSafe-enabled Leather Wallet case and iPhone 12 Silicone Case and Clear Case have been available since October 16. As mentioned, Apple’s first-party leather cases for the iPhone 12 will be available beginning Friday, November 6. As for the MagSafe Duo Charger and the Leather Sleeve case, these will be available at a later date.
