Apple sells a new protective shell for the new generation of iPhone 12 which has a particularity: it indicates the time. However, you will only see the time in a certain situation, so the case does not offer any additional benefits.
The case reveals an area of the screen where you can see the time on the lock screen, meaning the time can be read anytime, even with a cover on the device screen.
Now you can buy this new cover leather with MagSafe and time function. But there is a problem and it is not just the price of 149 $ for the iPhone 12 and 12 models. It costs the same for the iPhone 12 mini and the iPhone 12 Pro Max.

The inside pocket is perfect for storing your credit cards or ID card and the matching strap is very comfortable to always have your mobile close to hand. Funny thing is that Apple never mentions that the time display is there.

So, for now, the time will only appear on the new case when you pick up the device and it won’t stay constant. Therefore, the following question arises: who is the feature suitable for?
The answer is that it’s for iPhone 12 owners who don’t have an Apple Watch on their wrist and want to see the time (and don’t worry about needing to lift the device to do so. ) in addition to protecting their screen.
If you have an Apple Watch and therefore you can check the time on your wrist at any time, you won’t need a case like this, or at least it wouldn’t have the most. meaningless.
