Twelve South’s stunning SurfacePad is a case (kind of) for iPhone owners who hate cases — and it’s now available for iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max.

SurfacePad is a sheet of high-end leather that sticks to the back of your device and wraps around to cover its display. It keeps your iPhone free from scracthes, without the drawbacks of a traditional case.

Apple spends years painstakingly designing every iPhone to make it as beautiful as can be. And the first thing we do when we get one is stick it in a case that hides its pretty looks and doubles its thickness.

This keeps our beloved new handset looking pristine, but prevents us from ever really enjoying its cool metal and curved glass that we’ve protected oh-so-carefully. There is a better way.

Twelve South’s SurfacePad gives you the best of both worlds. It helps shield your iPhone, front and back, from anything that might scratch it, but opens up in a way that lets you enjoy its design as Apple intended.

A case that doesn’t feel like a case

The SurfacePad is essentially just a thin piece of luxurious leather. It sticks to the back of your iPhone using an adhesive that peels off easily later, and wraps around to protect all glass surfaces.

It has some tricks up its sleeve, too. Built-in magnets allow the SurfacePad to wake your iPhone when you open it, and send your iPhone back to sleep when you close it. A pocket on the inside of the SurfacePad’s front cover lets you carry your most important credit and ID cards, so you can forget your wallet when you leave the house.

Available in a number of gorgeous color options.

What’s more, the SurfacePad doubles as a handy stand, which is ideal for hands-free FaceTime calls, watching movies, reading books, or playing games with a wireless controller.

The SurfacePad is available in a number of pretty color options, with prices starting at just $49.99 for the iPhone 11 series. You can also get it for iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max from $39.99.
