Twelve South have always produced top-notch premium cases for the iPhone and iPad, and now they’ve released their famous BookBook case for the latest breed of Apple mobiles. The BookBook is a leather folio case that disguises your iPhone as a leather-bound tome, providing a uniquely classy look and feel. There’s much more to this case than meets the eye, too – so check out the links below to go straight to the product pages, or read on for more from me!
The BookBook is made from hand-distressed leather, granting it an authentic look, feel and smell. Placed on a desk or sitting on a shelf, you’d be hard-pressed to tell it apart from a classic volume at first or even second glance. It’s only when you open the cover that it becomes obvious that you’ve actually got an iPhone case in your hands.
Inside, you’ll see your iPhone on the right and a mini-wallet section on the left. The wallet includes a space for IDs, plus three more slots for credit cards and tickets. There’s a larger pocket beneath, perfect for keeping paper notes and other important bits of paper.
The cool bit is that your iPhone actually sits in a thin shell case within the folio. That means you can actually detach the thicker folio section, and just use the thin shell case when you want a slimmer yet still protective option. Then when you’d rather have the added screen protection and stylish looks of the full ensemble, it’s easy to re-attach the two pieces to get the original case back. It’s pretty magical initially, and works really well to adapt to different situations.
Another useful feature you’ll find in the BookBook is a built-in media stand. Just pull the cover back, and you’ll be able to use it to prop up your iPhone in landscape mode at a useful angle. This is perfect for watching videos or playing games on your iPhone, and it means that you don’t need a dedicated iPhone 6 desk stand.
So there we have it – all about the functional and beautiful BookBook. The BookBook is coming soon to Mobile Fun for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus (and already available for the iPad Mini!) You can check availability – and sign up for stock notifications – via the links below.

Earlier today we covered the iPhone 5S and 5, but what if you have an iPhone 5C? We haven’t forgotten about you, so here are five of our favourite cases for the iPhone 5C.
5. Polycarbonate Shell Case - 100% Clear
The Polycarbonate Shell Case shares a common trait with many of our favourites: it is transparent, offering a full view of the colour of the iPhone 5C that you’ve chosen. The Polycarbonate Shell Case is quite simple, offering complete coverage of your iPhone 5C to prevent scratches and absorb impacts, with cutouts wherever necessary to ensure full accessibility. It’s a simple but massively popular case, well worth a look.
This sweet pack of circle cases allow you to make tons of fun combinations with different coloured iPhone 5Cs. Like the official alternatives, these cases are dotted with 35 circles to let your iPhone 5C shine through. Unlike the official cases, these are totally affordable – you can pick up all six colours for £15. The flexible silicone material used makes these cases easy to install and remove too, so a hot swap is only seconds away.
This classy case offers something a little different: incredible protection and a mature, modern look. The cases are still available in a nice range of colours to match or complement your iPhone 5C, but the effect is stronger than a transparent case. The TPU and polycarbonate hybrid design is also brilliant for keeping your iPhone safe, adding layers of protection against even heavy drops, knocks, scratches and more.
Wish your iPhone 5C had better battery life? That’s easy – use this Power Jacket case. You’ll get a whopping 2200mAh of battery life, which will more than double your battery life, letting you get through your day without worrying. The case is slim and light for a battery case too.
1. Rearth Ringke Fusion Case - Black / Clear
Our winning case is the Rearth Ringke Fusion, a clever case that marries a transparent back and a protective bumper. The case is incredibly durable, and will protect your iPhone 5C from scratches and drops for many months to come. If you’re looking to add protection without covering up the signature colour of your phone, then the Rearth Ringke Fusion is one of the very best options available.

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus may be the latest iPhones, but not everyone has jumped to the newer, larger models. If you’re using the iPhone 5 or 5S, then check out our recommendations for the best cases this Christmas.
We begin with a unique case, the Moshi SenseCover. This case has a one-of-a-kind plastic window and conductive strip, allowing you to see who’s calling – and answer the phone – without needing to open the flip cover. It also works for checking the time; always handy if you’re not wearing a watch. The case protects your screen, and adds decent protection to the back and sides from drops and scratches too.
4. enCharge Qi Wireless Charging Case - Black
The enCharge Qi Wireless Charging Case does just what it says on the tin, adding the convenience of wireless charging to your iPhone 5 or 5S. The case is quite slim, adding minimal bulk to your iPhone and keeping it nicely pocketable. Just pick up this case and a Qi charging pad and you’ll be golden.
Draco Design’s beautiful flowing designs have quickly made it one of the most popular cases on our site, and we’ve expanded our range to include eight colours. If you want to pick up an award-winning stylish case that still provides great grip and protection, then a Draco Design bumper is right for you.
2. Mophie 32GB Space Pack - Black, White
Another unique case is the Mophie Space Pack, which provides both additional battery power and additional storage to your iPhone 5S. This Space Pack adds 32GB, easily accessible using the Mophie app. This can be used to hold media like music or videos, freeing up space on your iPhone’s internal space. You also get 1700mAh of battery power, more than doubling your battery life!
1. Griffin Survivor Case - Black
Our winning case is a classic – the Griffin Survivor. This case is the most protective case available for the iPhone 5S, adding some bulk but also ensuring that your iPhone is near-invulnerable to drops, scratches, rain, dirt, snow and more. If you watch some of Griffin’s increasingly outrageous survival videos for this phone, then you’ll quickly see why so many people depend on the Survivor to keep their phones safe.

Looking for a great iPhone 6 Plus case for yourself or that special someone? Check out our selection of hand-chosen cases and covers; I’m sure you’ll find at least one case that’ll be perfect for your needs.
We begin with one of the most classically beautiful cases in our collection, the Encase Genuine Leather Wallet. This case is made from the finest premium leather, offering the supple touch, warm smell and natural wearing that only leather can provide. The Leather Wallet is practical too, with room for your cash and cards plus a reliable snap closure. Also available in black.
Next up is another recent favourite of mine, the X-Doria Engage Plus. This slim, classy case is perfect for adding a touch of glamour to your iPhone 6 Plus while keeping it well protected from everyday wear and tear. The case features a lovely gold striped design that really suits the white version of the iPhone 6 Plus. Also available in silver (which is recommended for black iPhone 6 Plus models).
If you want top-notch protection, then the Otterbox Defender Series is a great bet. The tri-layer case provides considerable resistance to damage from a variety of sources; it absorbs impacts, deflects scratches and generally takes a beating so that your phone doesn’t have to. Also available in black.
The Spigen Neo Hybrid is one of the most impressive cases we have, offering a strong blend of looks, protection and svelte dimensions. The case is available in a wide range of colours too, including champagne gold, reventon yellow, gunmetal, dante red, infinity white and metal slate.
Our winning case today is the incomparable Twelve South SurfacePad, which provides a beautiful leather cover in a very small amount of space. The ultra-thin design will protect well enough against everyday wear and tear, although you might consider a stronger and bigger case if you’re particularly accident-prone. The case also comes with a media stand, which is brilliant for watching videos on the extra-large 5.5-inch display of the iPhone 6 Plus.

Twelve South produce some of the nicest premium cases for the iPhone and iPad. We recently unveiled the SurfacePad for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and now it’s time to turn our attention to the latest Apple tablet: the iPad Air 2!
The SurfacePad for the iPad Air 2 is quite possibly even nicer looking than the iPhone 6 version, if for no other reason that we see the same winning design and materials reproduced at a much larger scale. The premium, genuine leather feels fantastic in your hand, stretching out to cover the screen of your iPad Air 2 and protect it from scratches or knocks.
This leather iPad Air 2 case is one of the thinnest available too, adding just millimetres to the thickness of your iPad Air 2. The sides of your iPad are left fully accessible, allowing your speakers to stay loud, your buttons to be easily pressed and the camera to take those surprisingly great shots. The SurfacePad is sleep/wake-compatible, so you’ll be able to open the cover to awaken the iPad and then send it slumbering again once the cover is closed. This saves you time and keeps your iPad going for longer.
The final beauteous feature of the SurfacePad is a multi-level, magnetic viewing stand. By flipping the cover to the rear of the tablet, you’ll be able to prop up the iPad Air 2 in landscape mode. That’s perfect for watching movies, surfing the web or having FaceTime chats with your family and friends. The tiny magnets that make the stand work also ensure that the cover doesn’t need to clip or adhere to your shiny tablet in order to stay securely attached.
The SurfacePad is available in four colours for the iPad Air 2. To see more information or place your pre-order for any or all, please visit the pages below:
