iSkin, a Toronto based tech company, has released their cases for the iPad Mini within the past weeks. As well, they have also unveiled some new signature cases for the iPhone 5. Here is a quick look at some of their new products.
iPad Mini Cases:
Aura Folio for iPad Mini
The Aura for the iPad Mini was anticipated after the success after their Aura for iPhone and iPad. The case is a “folio-style case”, which means it opens out like a book. The Aura Folio will deliver sophistication in a tailored, sculpted package. It features a brushed aluminum nylon exterior, with a microfiber-lined interior.
The case also takes a few design cues from the Aura2 for the iPad. It has cutouts for the camera in the back, as well as access for the ports. It features an all-around protection for your iPad Mini, something I found the Aura2 for the iPad lacked. It has viewing angles as well, but not as much as the Aura2 for iPad. There is a magnetic lock feature similar to the Apple Smart Cases, as well as a few pockets for your business and credit cards.
Vibes Folio (Swirl Edition) for iPad Mini
The iSkin Vibes folio is almost identical to the Aura Folio for iPad Mini. However, the design is quite different. The Vibes Swirl Edition fuses “light and dark tones” that resemble a printed pattern on top of the nylon fabric. The case also features all-around protection, magnetic lock, different viewing angles, and pockets for your business and credit cards.
This case comes in 3 different colour options: purple, black and white. The case also retails for $49.99, and you can check it out from iSkin here.
iPhone 5 Cases:
Fuze 360 for iPhone 5
The Fuze 360 is a protective iPhone case that features 360 degree protection. iSkin first announced the Fuze last year for the iPhone 4/4S, and you can check out that review here. The Fuze 360 provides impact and shock protection. The shock absorption is achieved through an inner layer with a durable, impact-resistant outer hard shell. This feature worked quite well for the iPhone 4/4S version.
This case comes with an ProTouch Titan High-Impact Screen Film screen protector. This uses multi-layered technology that will help you prevent damage for your Retina display. Trust me, you don’t want to crack that beautiful iPhone 5 display! The Fuze 360 also covers the home button, volume rockers, and lightning port, something I’m really happy to see this company do. This should help with protection against spills and other damage.
The case retails for $49.99 on iSkin, and you can check it out here.
Revo 360 for iPhone 5
The Revo is one of the most popular iPhone cases among iSkin customers, as I can see from previous posts on their Facebook page. Well now, it’s back for the iPhone 5.
The Revo 360 has a silicone composition that is non-toxic and hypoallergenic. It also has MicroBan technology, similar to the Pebble of the iPod Touch, that resits moisture, heat and tearing. It’s texture also gives you a supporting grip to your iPhone 5. The unique feature of this case is the rotary belt clip that can rotate between 0 and 90 degrees in either direction. While many love this feature as a “belt clip”, many use it as a media stand for watching video. You could probably even use it to play everyone’s favourite game…Angry Birds!
This case comes in 4 colours options: red/black, grey/black, pink/white, and red/black. The case retails for $39.99 on iSkin, and you can check it out here.
