I always end up with a detachable wallet case for my phones after purchasing numerous cases. I like the screen protection and I find it comfortable to hold in my hands when using. But I detach for use on my Osmo, photos and when I place in a stand. I saw the rumor that the iPhone 12 has a circle of magnets on the back, so my wish is that it does and Apple releases a folio case where you just attach the naked iPhone 12 to it, kind of like the iPad Pro attaches to the Magic Keyboard Case.

Maybe wishful thinking, but wondering if Apple will go back to the fully covered Leather cases again for the 12. It seems the only iteration of the IPhone this was ever offered was back when it was squared off, similar to what we are going to get this go around. That has always been one of the downfalls in some peoples minds with the official cases so maybe they surprise us this year.

I believe one of the leaks showed a fully enclosed silicone case. Obviously its just a leak, but I would love a fully enclosed leather case like I had for my 5s

Aren't some of the new phones like the 12 mini according to the rumors supposed to have a fingerprint reader on the sleep button? Wouldn't the cases have to be open at that spot?

It looks like you kinda got your wish :)
