And, as long as you remember your phone, you’ll never forget your wallet again.

BookBook for iPhone 5

Cover to cover, BookBook makes iPhone more fun.

Between the hardback covers of BookBook for iPhone, you’ll find a leather-wrapped frame that securely holds iPhone and offers edge-to-edge access to all four inches of iPhone’s stunning Retina display. You'll have easy access to all ports and buttons as well. Thanks to customer feedback, this BookBook has a built-in camera hole so you can quickly capture photos with the iPhone iSight camera. And Apple’s Passbook app is a great way to carry your rewards cards, airline cards and coupons without fattening your wallet.

Your phone is safe in BookBook.

BookBook for iPhone has two hardback covers and a rigid spine to protect your iPhone against dings and bruises. You get an additional layer of protection in the form of a disguise. Sitting on a table, BookBook for iPhone looks like a small journal, not an expensive phone and wallet. How’s that for stealthy protection? To chat on the phone, fold the covers back-to-back to talk – keeping a finger's amount of space between the covers for the noise-canceling mic. It feels great in your hand.

Put your money where your phone is. 

Wallets and phones go hand in hand. You rarely leave home without the two of them. Now you can carry both in one BookBook made just for iPhone. This vintage-style book has a convenient ID window and four slots for your debit/credit cards and cash. The ID window has a convenient thumb slide so you can quickly take your ID out at the airport. Instead of collecting your wallet, phone and keys when you walk out the door, simply grab BookBook and your keys, and go.

BookBook FAQs

Will you be making a BookBook for iPhone 7 / 7 Plus?

We are just as excited as you about Apple's announcements and our designer are working diligently to get new cases and covers out for the new devices, including BookBook! If you would like to be the first to know when all our 7 / 7 Plus accessories are ready, click here to sign up. 

What's the easiest way for me to take my iPhone out of BookBook?

To remove your iPhone from BookBook, simply bend the two top corners of the case back until the iPhone releases from the frame, slide your fingers behind your iPhone and pull it out of the case.

When my iPhone is in BookBook for iPhone, my voice sounds muffled to the people I'm talking to. Why is this happening?

The iPhone has a noise-cancelling microphone, located on the back between the camera and flash. In environments with background noise, if this microphone is covered, it will cause your voice to sound muffled. If your listener finds your voice muffled, open the cover slightly to allow the noise-cancelling microphone to work more effectively. This will be true for all cases with a front cover that folds back on itself when the iPhone is in use.

Will the iPhone demagnetize my credit cards?

No. BookBook for iPhone 5 does not contain any magnets whatsoever. The iPhone does not create or use magnetic material of any appreciable size either. If it did, it would interfere with the iPhone’s own internal Compass. Apple even warns against using any case with magnets. Finally, the notion that a cell phone could ever erase the magnetic strip on a credit card may be more myth than reality. Extensive internal testing has reaffirmed, credit cards will not be erased by being held in close proximity to your iPhone in a BookBook.

What is the benefit to keeping my iPhone in a BookBook?

Keeping your iPhone in this little book means you have one less thing to grab on the way out the door and one less item to stuff in your pockets or purse. BookBook for iPhone is a wallet and case packaged into one well designed, pocket-size book. It’s an easy way to simplify your life. And if you ever misplace your wallet, you can use 'Find My iPhone' to find it!

The cover of my BookBook for iPhone SE won't lay flat, is this normal?

Just like a pair of leather shoes, the cover of your BookBook for iPhone SE will "break in" over time to lay flat. One way to expedite this process is to lay your BookBook front cover down whenever you place your BookBook on a table or flat surface.

How many cards and how much cash can BookBook for iPhone hold?

BookBook for iPhone SE can comfortably hold four to five cards, along with a couple folded bills of cash, receipts or business cards inside the vertical pocket.

So if I lose my BookBook, I lose my iPhone and wallet at the same time?

No - just the opposite in fact. With your iPhone in a BookBook, you've just attached a GPS to your wallet! Simply use "Find My iPhone" to locate your wallet in seconds. In many ways, your cards and ID are more secure in BookBook because now you have a way to find them - before somebody else does.

Can I access the controls and charge/sync my iPhone inside BookBook?

Yes. You can access all controls on your phone while it’s in BookBook and you can charge/sync your iPhone with the wallet open or closed. Unlike bumper style cases, there are no frames to get in your way.
