Pictures show the effects
Many users want their new iPhones to be given the best possible protection – and use protective covers from Apple or third-party providers, which have a wide range of different products. Recently found at Apple Leather coversthat cover the back of the device for all iPhone 12 models. There are six different color options to choose from, and they all have in common the support of MagSafe. This means that the phone does not have to be removed from the case before it can be placed on the corresponding charger and magnetically adheres there. This practical peculiarity of the new accessories seems to leave its mark in the longer term: Apple explains on the product page that MagSafe accessories could be accompanied by prints on the case – and illustrates this with a case that shows such a circular print. For users who want to avoid these consequences, the company has another tip ready: In this case, Apple recommends buying a silicone case or clear case.
New leather case also affected
It is doubtful whether the silicone counterpart actually remedies this: Images of these covers have already appeared, which also show impressions of MagSafe accessories. In the Leather cover, which covers the entire phone and is already listed at Apple, the manufacturer also speaks of possible prints, but without referring to alternatives. Apple does not provide corresponding images for this product either.
