Twelve South Introduces ‘SurfacePad’ for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus [VIDEO]



Twelve South’s new SurfacePad for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus is a premium quality, Napa leather razor thin-jacket designed to protect the iPhone without adding bulk and weight. The lightweight luxury leather cover not only protects the front and back of the iPhone from scratches, but also packs two handy card slots on the inside. And if you flex the back, the SurfacPad turns into a hands-free display stand.

Luxury leather jacket tailored just for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. 

The first thing you’ll notice about SurfacePad for iPhone 6 is how comfortable and secure the soft, warm leather feels in your hand – compared to slippery aluminum or a hard plastic case. It really enhances the feel of iPhone without concealing iPhone’s beautiful design. SurfacePad for iPhone 6 also adds reinforced stitching around the perimeter for long-term durability and added style. Soft microfiber lines the inside, while soft napa leather shields your iPhone screen from the outside.

Room for two cards… and Apple Pay.  

The inside front cover of SurfacePad for iPhone 6 has two slots for cards. Thanks to Apple Pay and Passbook, you can keep your bank cards and tickets on your iPhone and your ID and transit cards in your SurfacePad. Or simply use the slots for an occasional night on the town with your ID and Bank Card. SurfacePad’s two card slots are the perfect complement to your new lighter Apple Pay world.


SurfacePad is available for both iPhone 6 ($39.99) and iPhone 6 Plus ($49.99) in Black, Red, White and Camel colours at

    Nice but I am waiting for the BookBook. Nothing beats that.

  • Salinger

    The Bookbook is awesome, but it does add considerable bulk to a phone. With the 6 being so thin, I’m wondering if I want to do that. Ideally, I’d like to hold both in my hands and see what they feel like.

    I also like to switch up my case regularly depending on what I’m doing/where I’m going. I know they say the Surfacepad can be removed and reattached numerous times, but I have to believe that the “stickiness”, for lack of a better term, will be less effective each time you do it.

    I get that, personally I like that it holds more cards and has a window for ID. Not so concerned with bulk as I had the last bookbook for my 5s and I assume this will lessen the bulk from that due to the 6 being thinner. I used it as my only wallet and I am looking forward to doing that again.

  • Luc Delorme

    I had a surfaced on my 5s. The stickiness wasn’t a problem, and I detached and reattached about 10 times. Unfortunately, after about 10 months, the adhesive and stitching that holds the front of the cover gave way, and the cover essentially fell apart.

  • Salinger

    Good to know, thanks! I’ve actually read a number of complaints on the Twelve South Facebook page about Bookbooks falling apart as well. I had one years ago, and it was pretty high quality. But there are enough of these complaints that I wonder if quality control is suffering a bit as they become bigger?

    cool, but it doesn’t appear to protect the one edge in the event of a drop.

    I think that TwelveSouth has lost some of its sparkling in the past two years… They impressed me a great deal with their BookBook (got two already) but this SurfacePad and their HiRise stand look very cheap to me… I was proud to “show off” my BookBook casings, but this item too is overdue for an overhaul!…
