Twelve South unveils new BookBook cases for the iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4

February 2, 2016

If you’re looking for a stylish and classy case for your iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 4, Twelve South has just unveiled two new BookBooks for those tablets.

As you could probably tell by the name, the BookBook is designed to mimic the look of an old hardback novel and provide complete protection for an iPad when on the go. The covers are made with genuine distressed leather while a soft microfiber material lines the inside.

When you’re ready to work, simply unzip the case. The case can place your tablet in either a typing or media viewing angle. All buttons and ports are available to use, including the camera.

Available in brown, you can purchase either BookBook now from Twelve South’s site. The iPad Air 2 version is $79.99 while the iPad mini 4 edition is $10 less.

Coming soon for the iPad Pro


The iPad Pro version of the BookBook will have a built-in pocket for the Apple Pencil.

The high-quality accessory maker also announced that a BookBook for the larger iPad Pro is indeed in development.

Along with a display stand and built-in sketching angle, the BookBook for that tablet will feature a pocket for the optional Apple Pencil.

The case will hit the market sometime this spring. You can sign up on Twelve South’s site to be notified when it is available. No pricing was announced.

I’ve reviewed previous versions of the BookBook, and have definitely been impressed. and the new models look to continue that tradition. Keep a look out as we will have a review of both new versions soon.
