The first hands-on video and images of Apple's iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro leather cases have been shared online by German site Macerkopf.



The video and images were reportedly sent to Macerkopf by a reader who obtained a selection of cases early. One case for each of the three device sizes, encompassing the iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 12 and 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 mini, are shown in Black and Saddle Brown.

The cases appear to be mostly similar to Apple's leather cases from previous years, with metal buttons and a soft-touch interior, but with the exception of a ring on the inside of the case to indicate MagSafe's array of magnets. The leather cases also seem to fully cover the bottom of the device like Apple's new silicone cases for added protection.

Although Apple's clear and silicone cases for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro have been on sale for some time, the leather cases have not yet been made available to customers.

Apple's full selection of leather cases with MagSafe for the iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max will be available from this Friday, alongside pre-orders of the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max.

So if I understand this correctly the bottom of the case covers the lightning port on all the apple cases ? I take it in an attempt encourage people to use MagSafe. But how are you meant to use CarPlay on the majority of vehicles which do not yet have bluetooth sync ? I like the apple leather cases and have had them for lots of my phones, but I guess it's time to go elsewhere. To purchase a third party bluetooth sync for CarPlay, MagSafe, and case as well as a new phone is a very expensive ask.

There’s cutouts on the bottom for the speaker, mic and lightning port.
