Best iPhone 12 Mini phone cases

 

With the release of the new iPhone 12 series, the iPhone 12 Mini is the smallest of the four models with a 5.4” display size. It seems that Apple are going back to their older routes, which we are a fan of.

  1. Terrapin Flexi Clear Gel Case

 

 

The iPhone 12 Mini is available in numerous colours compared to the other 12 series. With this in mind, some of you might want to show off the colour you’ve chosen.

It has a slim-fitting low profile design but still offers the robust protection of a hard case whilst keeping the form-fitting flexibility of a soft case. It’s the perfect combination. It’s been produced for a precise fit to your iPhone 12 Mini and is bulk-free. It ensures your device is protected from everyday hazards such as impacts, drops, scratches, dirt and dust.

 

  1. Rokform Rugged Case

It features a hard protective Polycarbonate outer shell and a soft impact resistant core. If you’re keen on outdoor activities or are very active, this case exceeds military drop-test standards, which means you don’t have to worry about dropping your iPhone 12 Mini. This case has the ‘Roklock twist lock system’ which means you can securely mount your phone to a variety of accessories for bikes, cars and more. It’s such a good feature. It also includes magnetic technology, which means you can attach it to any magnetic surface. The magnetic won’t interfere with your credit cards, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth etc.

With back to school getting underway, we’ve compiled a list of accessories that we think you’ll need to make your days easier.

 

Terrapin Apple iPhone X/XS Tempered Glass Screen Protector

 

 

The Terrapin Tempered Glass Screen Protector is available for several phone models, such as Samsung and Apple. With some screen repairs costing over £100, it’s recommended to protect your device’s screen with one of our tempered glass screen protectors. Offering premium protection for your device’s delicate screen, this screen protector is made of shatter-proof glass and has a smudge-proof coating. Whilst some new phone models have curved screens, please note that the Terrapin screen protectors are recessed from the edge by up to 10%. The recess extends the life of the screen protector and prevents the edges from catching. It enhances compatibility and allows you to use the screen protector alongside a case.

 

The 100% tempered glass screen protector provides protection from damage and scratches including sharp objects such as keys. It’s easy to apply with no bubbles; the silicone adhesive does the work for you. Everyone can benefit from a screen protector. We’ve all had those moments where you drop your phone face down and bend down to slowly pick it up and turn it over to reveal a mosaic of shattered glass.

Does an iPhone 11 case fit an iPhone 12?

Simply answered. No. The iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max cases do not fit the new iPhone 12 series. 

It’s always great when your old case fits your new phone. However, this year Apple has made some dramatic changes to the iPhone. The biggest change is the shape, which now includes a square edge. Using an old case on your new device depends on some different factors. The new device must be the same size as your old phone and the cut-outs must match the placement of the new camera, ports and buttons.

 

What’s different about the iPhone 12?

The iPhone 12 has been launched in four different models, all with bigger and better cameras. The four models include the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. The good news is that the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro are the same size.

 

Both the iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 have similar screen sizes; however, the overall design of the iPhone 12 is dissimilar so any iPhone 11 case will not fit it. The fit would be loose and the buttons and ports would not line up correctly.

 

What’s the conclusion?

The best advice we can give you is to buy yourself a new case that has been specifically designed for the shape and size of the iPhone 12. As an iPhone 11 case will not fit, you will need to find a new design.

 

There are several iPhone 12 case designs to choose from. We offer simple designs that are slim fitting to your device and provide protection against every day hazards, such as scratches, drops and bumps.

Brand new: iOS 14 features and compatibility

Brand new: iOS 14 features and compatibility

Bringing a new look to your iPhone, iOS 14 has some great features that need to be talked about.

 

Widgets

 

The widgets have been redesigned to create a beautiful layout whilst providing data that you’re likely to view throughout your day. You can now place widgets anywhere on your home screen, making it a perfect way to track your commute, fitness activity, news stories or events. There is a widget gallery that is a centralised place where all your widgets are. The top widget displayed will be the app you use the most. A new feature, Smart Stack, allows you to view a set of widgets that you can easily swipe through. It uses on-device intelligence to work out what widget to show you, based on the time of day and which apps you use at what time each day. For example, you could be shown the News widget in the morning, fitness widget during the day and a commute widget in the evening using maps. It’s very intelligent. iOS 14 allows you to choose the size of your widgets. There are three sizes to choose from, depending on how much information you want to see of each.

  

 

App Library

 

The App Library is a fantastic new feature that shows at the end of your Home Screen pages. It organises all your apps into one group, making it super easy for you to navigate. It will show you suggested apps that you might be looking for, which is based on your device usage like time and location. For example, if you use the News app every morning, it will suggest this app to you at that time every day. New apps that you download from the App Store will go straight into the App Library, making it easy for you to manage. It stores your apps in automatically sorted categories such as Social and Productivity. You can use the search bar to find a specific app quickly, and when you tap Search, all the apps will be listed alphabetically.

 

 

 

Compact UI

 

Changes have been made to improve the user experience. Phone calls now appear as a banner when you are using your phone. This means you won’t lose track of what you were doing. You can swipe up on the banner to dismiss the call, or swipe down to access all the phone features. Tap the green phone to answer the call. FaceTime calls also appear as a banner so it no longer takes over the whole screen. Again, you can swipe up to dismiss the call, or down to access more FaceTime call features. Siri has a new design that allows you to refer to information onscreen. Results for Siri have also been updated to give you the information that you need.

 

Picture in Picture

 

You can now continue watching a video or taking a FaceTime call whilst using another app. It means you can catch up with your friends whilst checking an email, for example. You can move the picture to any corner of the screen by dragging it. You can resize the picture window by pinching it to make it bigger or smaller. Completely minimize the video window by moving it offscreen to allow you full access to an app while continuing to listen to the audio.

 

Memoji

 

There are more ways in which you can customise your Memoji with new hairstyles and headwear. There are more fun stickers and more age options. You can also apply a face covering now. Change your hairstyle with a faded look.

 

 

 

Compatibility

iOS 14 is compatible with the following iPhone models:

 

iPhone 11

iPhone 11 Pro / Pro Max

iPhone X / XS / XS Max

iPhone XR

iPhone 8 / 7 / 6s

iPhone 8 Plus / 7 Plus / 6s Plus

iPhone SE (1st& 2ndgeneration)

 

Conclusion

 

Upgrade to iOS 14 now to make use of all these new features and ensure your life is organised in a way that suits you. All your apps are sorted in a way that makes it easy for you to find them when needed.
