As it always has to go next to the iPad but it doesn’t have any element that holds it to it… it’s complicated to keep them together. Apple has solved this to some extent with the iPad Pro Leather Case that has a built-in hole for the Apple Pencil, but what do you do if you already have a Smart Cover for example?
The accessory manufacturer Twelve South has a solution for this, and that is that it has just launched PencilSnap, a new leather case specifically for the Apple Pencil. Yes, Apple also has its own case for the Apple Pencil, but the key is that Twelve South’s case will always be attached to your iPad Pro. How? Thanks to the magnets it has inside. You put it next to your iPad, Smart Cover, or most other iPad cases, and it stays attached so you don’t lose it.
The PencilSnap case is a perfect match for the SurfacePad iPad case, which is the TwelveSouth case in the same ‘Camel’ colour. But because uses leather like the official Apple cases and two easily matching colours (black and caramel) you can use it with virtually any case you have.
As for the price, the PencilSnap is on sale for 29 dollars , about 25 euros at the exchange rate. You can buy it now, taking into account that it’s cheaper than the official Apple case and also has magnets… it’s an option to consider, unless you want the exact colour of your iPad case. Twelve South has shipping costs outside the United States, but these costs are eliminated with a purchase of over $95, so it might be a good time to get your MacBridge or the new Mac-scented ‘Inspire’ candle, for example.
