Popular Apple accessory company Twelve South today introduced a new addition to its line of SurfacePad cases, the SurfacePad for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The leather case is designed for ultimate portability, with an ultra thin folding design and the ability to transform into a hands-free display stand.

The SurfacePad case attaches to the back of the iPhone using the company's "SurfaceGrip technology", which Twelve South claims to allow the removal and reattachment of the case repeatedly.

With two separate slots for credit cards in the front cover, the case bills itself as a companion of sorts to Apple's new Apple Pay feature.

The inside front cover of SurfacePad for iPhone 6 has two slots for cards. Thanks to Apple Pay and Passbook, you can keep your bank cards and tickets on your iPhone and your ID and transit cards in your SurfacePad. Or simply use the slots for an occasional night on the town with your ID and Bank Card. SurfacePad’s two card slots are the perfect complement to your new lighter Apple Pay world.

Fun new features and the big, beautiful Retina HD display give you so many reasons to use iPhone 6 hands-free, that a case without a stand is not an option anymore. Fortunately, SurfacePad’s built-in stand is perfect for watching movies, hanging out with friends on FaceTime, and taking timed group photos. Flex the back of SurfacePad to put iPhone into display mode, and you’ll be ready for hands-free selfies, watching game highlights at the bar or catching a TED Talk in your favorite coffee shop.


The SurfacePad for iPhone 6 is the latest iteration in a long line of SurfacePad cases for Apple products. The company announced a case for the iPad Mini earlier in the year, and already makes cases for older model iPhones and MacBooks.

SurfacePad for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is available in Black, Red, White, and Camel. It can be purchased on the Twelve South website at $39.99 for the iPhone 6 model and $49.99 for the iPhone 6 Plus.

Cute idea, but no protection for the phone, really. If they upgrade it with some form of edge protection, then maybe I would be interested. Looks like a beta fashion accessory more than anything else to me.

Magnets... directly touching a phone with an HD in it..

Think about that for a moment.

You need a new phone if yours has a hard drive in it.

Per the usual, slow relevant iNews. Time to make easy money for tacky ads in the front page.


Eh, I'm not paying to use this website. As far as I'm concerned, Macrumors can do whatever they need to stay afloat. If my experience here is compromised, then I'll just leave for another forum.

It's not really for "protection", I see plenty of people use their phone naked and don't really give a damn if it's damaged.

Not everyone is neurotic about protecting their phone... I'm not one of those people... :confused:
