MagSafe is now part of the BookBook story.

Knowing the Apple MagSafe Charger is the fastest way to charge iPhone 12, we retooled BookBook’s leather shell to be MagSafe compatible. When it’s time to charge your iPhone, simply separate the magnetic shell from the wallet and attach it to your MagSafe Charger. You can also use the BookBook shell with MagSafe accessories, including car mounts, charging pads and desktop stands like Forté.

No need to shell out money for a shell.

At the gym and need your iPhone, but not your wallet? No problem. Held in place by powerful hidden magnets, the shell can be quickly removed - just pull it away from the wallet. And the beautiful leather-inlayed shell provides five-sided protection. It’s like getting two cases for the price of one.

Part book. Part security blanket.

Behind the vintage look of BookBook is the story of protecting modern technology. BookBook has a 30 millimeter magnetic tab that keeps the case closed, protecting your phone and contents of your wallet. Hardback book covers and a rigid spine protect your iPhone from scratches and impacts. The final chapter is stealthy security. BookBook disguises your iPhone as a vintage leather-bound book, keeping your phone out of sight, even in plain sight.

BookBook for iPhone FAQs

Does standard wireless charging work with BookBook for iPhone 12 models?

Wireless charging, at best, can be tricky. The new iPhone 12 models introduced MagSafe charging which promises to improve the wireless charging experience immensely, however, standard Qi wireless charging remains problematic for some. Additionally, cases designed before MagSafe was announced, like our BookBook, cannot offer the improved MagSafe experience.

For now, we must say that wireless charging with BookBook for iPhone 12 models does not consistently work to our standards. It works fine for some but not for others so, currently, the most stable and fastest way to charge your iPhone 12 in a BookBook is with the standard lightning port.

That said, there are steps you can take that might help if you’re having difficulties charging wirelessly in our BookBook shell - or any case:

1.  Restart your iPhone. This will often take care of any wireless charging issues, including intermittent charging and no charging.

2. Make sure your iPhone has been updated to the latest iOS for fixes and improvements - especially iOS 14.2 that lists wireless charging as one of its improvements.

3. Make sure you have the iPhone properly aligned with the coils in the charger.  If you're not sure exactly where they are, you may need to slightly move the iPhone around a little to find the 'sweet spot'.  The BookBook for iPhone 12 shell has a metal lining with a large hole which allows for wireless charging, so if the iPhone is not properly aligned on the charger, you may receive a "foreign object" warning, or the iPhone may just fail to charge.

4.  Try turning OFF the Optimized Charging feature in your iPhone settings: Settings / Battery / Battery Health / Optimized Charging / OFF

Great news - you can upgrade it! Learn more here.

Is the BookBook shell MagSafe compatible?

Yes, the BookBook shell for iPhone 12, 12 Pro, 12 mini, and 12 Pro Max have been updated to include MagSafe compatibility. Have a previous version of BookBook for iPhone 12? Great news - you can upgrade it! Learn more here.

Why does Twelve South recommend keeping the titanium Apple Card specifically in the card slot with the window?

The window slot provides edge-to-edge protection, which has two benefits. It keeps the Apple Card stain-free, and it keeps the metal edges of the Apple Card away from your iPhone screen. Additionally, the window slot has a thumb-slide, allowing quick and easy access to your Apple Card.

What is so “new and improved” about the BookBook vol 2 shell?

The new BookBook shell isn’t just better-looking than any of the versions that came before it; it’s also more protective. It is more flexible, helping mitigate damage from falls, and the iPhone is easier to remove from the shell compared to our previous versions.

Will the hands-free display mode work with the new design?

Yes, you will still be able to use your BookBook as a hands-free stand. Note, however, that when the BookBook is new, the crease in the back cover is stiff, so for the first few times, you will need to bend the cover along that crease to loosen it up to ensure the iPhone shell will stay attached to the back cover via the magnets.

BookBook iPhone 13 case

I was very impressed. The design and the leather quality were excellent. I liked the removable iPhone case and case magnetic latch. I would like for you to add some additional padding on the iPhone black case cover; to help protect if you accidentally drop it. Overall, it's probably the best case that I have bought. I buy a new phone every 2-3 years (starting at iPhone 1), so I have watched iPhone wallet cases evolve. Keep up the case design, it's very functional and a high quality product. Thank you.
