Apple quietly released the highly anticipated leather case with MagSafe support for all new iPhone 12 models on Friday, completing the rollout of a range of MagSafe accessories announced in October.
Apple unveiled the leather case at the iPhone event last month and promised to launch the accessory before the end of the year.
Priced at $ 129 for all models, the case is made from “specially tanned and finished European leather” which develops a natural patina over time. The sleeve is designed to fit like a glove iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Max, offering protection against scratches and drops. Inside is a card slot, while the accompanying strap is removable.
Once inserted, iPhone 12 displays the time through a cutout in the case, the font color of the digital clock matching that of the sleeve. It’s a nice touch enabled by MagSafe’s NFC capabilities.
A MagSafe accessory, Apple’s leather case allows precise positioning of the MagSafe charging puck for efficient wireless charging. Like the others in the company leather case designs, constant use of MagSafe accessories will result in “slight fingerprints,” Apple says.
The leather case with MagSafe comes in four colors – Baltic Blue, Citrus Pink, Saddle Brown, and (Product) Red – and is available to order from the online Apple Store. The current delivery times are from December 16 to December 23 with free service or from December 15 with express delivery.
