    Once you flip the cover open, your hand that's holding the phone can keep the cover in place. It will require an extra movement but I'm sure it can't so bothersome that no one would use a smart cover.

    well it would go behind the phone so your palm would keep it in place quite easily.

    Would love a Smart Cover. It doesn't look like Apple will be releasing them but I'm sure a third party will.

    I've been looking for the same thing. Kind of what the S5 had when it was released. Like said earlier, a third party will come out with one, hopefully.

    But it would just be a regular cover. The thing that makes it smart is that it wakes/sleeps the iPad. The phones don't have that capability built in.

    I'm looking for a folio case like this too. The closest thing I have found to it is the Incipio Highland, which looks pretty good. I only wish the bottom of the case wasn't open. I'd rather it be a closed bumper style with cutouts for better drop protection. Maybe we will see more options in the next several weeks.

    Apple should have created this case already. They knew by making a phablet that people would use it instead of an iPad Mini. :apple:

    Good question. I'm not sure & their site doesn't say. They had these at AT&T yesterday, but I was afraid to take it out of the box in the store since I wasn't purchasing my phone there. I haven't found any reviews on-line of anyone who actually has the case.

    When I went to pick-up my iPhone, I stopped at Best Buy and they had some flip style cases:

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/platinum-flip-case-for-apple-iphone-6-plus-black/8451771.p?id=1219336295042&skuId=8451771&st=categoryid$abcat0811006&cp=1&lp=7

    When I used to jailbreak there was an app that would use the proximity sensor to mimic the smart case functionality on an iPad. I found the flip case annoying on a phone but it is nice to have more protection on the screen.

    the moshi senscover looked pretty good and you could to the swipe to unlock. It would work great only for the touchID on my 5s or passcode.

    I ordered a folio for mine off of amazon for a couple bucks for extra protection while I wait for LifeProof to release their case. I think a Smart Cover-like item is a brilliant idea.
