During the launch of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro, we realized that there were no official leather cases to accompany them. Now, Apple confirms that they will arrive today with the iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 mini, the day on which the expected HomePod mini is also launched. On the other hand, the MagSafe Duo charger as well as other accessories that make use of this system will be launched “later” according to Apple.
MagSafe leather cases for iPhone 12: five colors and 65 euros
The release date for the official iPhone 12 leather cases is today, as picked up on 9to5Mac. As Applesfera has learned, these covers will come in these five colors:
- California poppy, an orange color.
- PRODUCT (RED).
- Baltic blue.
In terms of compatibility, it will be found in three sizes. There will be leather cases for iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 / iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. 6.1-inch models share dimensions, so they are fully interchangeable.
Applesfera has also been able to know the launch price of these leather cases, which will be 65 euros for all of them. This is an increase of 10 euros over the price of last year’s iPhone 11 leather cases. Silicone cases have also increased from 45 to 49 euros per unit.
Rest of MagSafe accessories not yet available
MagSafe accessories will be available from apple.com, in the Apple Store app, and in other stores. Leather cases with MagSafe for all iPhone 12 models will be available starting Friday, November 6. The leather sleeves and MagSafe Duo charger will be available later.
This is how Apple has announced the launch of the leather cases for the iPhone 12. But it also states in passing that the MagSafe Duo and the MagSafe card holder they will be ready later. It is striking that Apple does not assign a more specific date or time frame as on other occasions.
This leads us to think that maybe they launch in december. In past generations, the company has released its Smart Battery Case, the battery case, without warning and several months after launch. It is possible that with the design change we will see a return of this accessory with some MagSafe adaptation.
iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro, analysis: at the speed of light
In any case, what is clear is that Apple hasn’t finished launching accessories yet for their new iPhone 12. Today we will see a second batch and before the end of the year we are likely to have another.
