Charger brick and earpods.

How well does the Apples clear case hold its color by the way? I have seen with other manufacturers clear cases that they often turn yellowish quite quickly.

I have always been happy with the silicone case but would welcome tips on some slightly slimmer, good quality protective cases if available.

Very brave to be going naked with them slippery squared off edges. 😂 hope you’re getting apple care plus.
Haha, I’m very careful with all of my devices. The only one I’ve ever damaged was a Galaxy Note II which got a cracked screen from a 50cm ish drop. On day two as well lol.

I’ve been all good with iPhones.

Same here never damaged my phones, but with these devices getting bigger and bigger and more slippery, don’t want to risk it, plus the apple silicone cases are awesome, so comfy to hold. 👌

I was thinking about doing this with the Pro — seems silly to cover up that expensive steel. Do you use anything to transport, like a sleeve?
I do this with my current 7 Plus. I am hoping to do this with the 12 mini, although only a few outlets have announced anything so far. Sena seem to have some. I have a Fitbag sleeve for my 7 Plus but I'm fancying something leather. Also thinking about one of these from Harber London.

Normally I don’t but I do really like the look of the sleeves they showed in the presentation. I can’t find them on the website though. I could be tempted by one of those.

Does the Apple Watch count as an accessory? I consider it so because it's not a standalone product.. either way, first Apple Watch for me.. first iPhone since 6S!

I don’t remember seeing any during the presentation — what did they look like? I’ve used a sleeve for other devices, and I like this — just for transport or storage, not usage.

Never used a case for any of my iPhones and don't intend to start now, as for accessories I don't really see the benefit of the MagSafe puck unless it's got enough weight for it to stay on the table when you lift the phone so I'll just stick with my Qi charger, definitely interested in Belkin's MagSafe car mount though, hopefully that's released sooner rather than later.

I think they're referring to the one that had the cut-out for the screen to show time? They don't seem to be on the site.

These look nice, but the problem with so many of these sleeves is that they are so tight fitting that is becomes a pain to use them — at least in my experience — maybe I’m alone in this.

Yeah that can be an issue. They become loose over time, from my experience. The Harber London ones will likely be better for you, compared to Sena... both use lovely soft leather.

This is the sleeve they showed but it hasn’t been listed on their website yet.

Anyone spotted the waterfield design slip in Suede pouch ? I remember it very well while back in iPhone 4. Easy to slip in/out like a sock.

Ahh yes good call on the MagSafe table charger.. I would imagine it won't just disconnect easily.. that would be a pretty weak magnet if it did. I'm interested in the Belkin 2-in-1 charger they showed off.

Someone said apple is launching their leather cases around the same time the iPhone pro max pre orders begin.

That makes sense, I wonder if the sleeve will be a pro exclusive like the folio case currently is

Blue 12 Mini with Baltic Blue wallet.

That looks amazing. I may have to pick one of those up if this pandemic ever ends and I need to go outside again lol.
