Unboxing Videos Provide Hands-on Look at Apple's New iPhone X Leather Folio Case

by

When Apple announced the iPhone X on September 12, the company also unveiled a new type of iPhone case called the "Leather Folio case," which has been specifically designed for iPhone X. Similar to existing wallet-style cases, the $99 Leather Folio accessory features a front cover that protects the iPhone X's screen when you aren't using it, and a few slots for cards or money.

Now that customers are beginning to get their iPhone X accessories in the mail ahead of the smartphone's launch on Friday, November 3, a few unboxing and hands-on videos have been posted on YouTube this week. The first video was posted by Walking Talking Tech, and focused on the iPhone X Leather Folio case in Taupe.


A look at the Leather Folio case in the new Berry colorway was shared by Ian Parkinson.


Japanese site Mac Otakara posted a video to its YouTube channel of the Berry Leather Folio case, providing a quick glimpse into how the accessory's magnets wake and sleep the iPhone X.


Besides Taupe and Berry, the Leather Folio comes in Black and Cosmos Blue. A quick 6-second video showcasing the Cosmos Blue color option can be found on Huiwen Huang's YouTube channel, while the Black Leather Folio case was shown off in a video published by Japanese YouTube channel KAKO.

You can purchase the iPhone X Leather Folio case on Apple.com for $99. As of writing, shipping estimates for Taupe and Black sit at around one week, while Cosmos Blue and Berry are a bit longer at 2-3 weeks. If you're interested in a more traditional case, Apple also sells the iPhone X Silicone Case ($39) and iPhone X Leather Case ($49).

$99 for a case is kind of insane. The magnetic sleep and wake is cool though.

I never understood these types of cases, it makes using them so much more cumbersome when you have to open and fold over the flap.

Charging $99 for a phone case is brave.

I had the leather case on either the original iPhone or 3G (can't remember which) and the leather delaminated from the case. Ever since then I've stayed away from leather. Presumably their construction is better these days but I still have an aversion.

I love the standard Apple leather cases but do not like this one in price or design. I've had no de-lamination and the leather forms a beautiful patina.
