Twelve South Debuts 'SurfacePad' MagSafe-Compatible Wallet Folio for iPhone 12

Twelve South today launched the "SurfacePad for iPhone 12," a new MagSafe-compatible wallet folio case for the iPhone 12, ‌iPhone 12‌ Pro, and iPhone 12 mini. The $49.99 leather case comes in brown cognac, black, and plum colors.

The SurfacePad for ‌iPhone 12‌ was designed to protect the front and back of the ‌iPhone 12‌, and includes two interior pockets for ID and bank cards. Since the cards are on the front portion of the folio, you'll also be able to wirelessly charge your ‌iPhone 12‌ with the SurfacePad on, unlike Apple's first party wallet accessory.

To attach SurfacePad to an ‌iPhone 12‌, there's a "SurfaceGrip 2.0" adhesive on the back of the accessory, which sticks to the back of your iPhone. Twelve South says this adhesive is reusable and super secure and it leaves no trace of sticky residue when removed.

SurfacePad sticks to your phone with SurfaceGrip 2.0, a super-secure, reusable adhesive.

Why not use the MagSafe magnets? I'm not a fan of using the adhesive.

I have a friend who has a case like this for his phone. Doesn't have an Apple Watch. Every text, every email, he has to pull out his phone, open the flap, check, the notification, close the flap, put it in his pocket. It's a little painful to watch.

Never put cards in the card holder on cases like this unless you use a screen protector as over time it leaves permanent marks on the glass.

So it's a MagSafe accessory that I have to adhere to my phone...? No thanks.

This looks like a nice product but I would be concerned about it not really offering any drop protection. I don't need to protect the front and back of the phone. If I drop the phone, it is most likely going to land on a corner and do damage. This doesn't look like it will offer any corner protection.
