The oversized closing flap leaves access to the Apple Pencil’s charging spot and is wide enough to secure it during transport, even when equipped with Paperlike’s Pencil Grips.

What modes / angles can I use the Folio Case in?

The Folio Case offers two separate angles or modes:

  • Watching mode props the iPad upright at a steep angle that is ideal for viewing content.
  • Writing / drawing mode sets the iPad at a shallow angle and is ideal when using your device in a productive fashion.

You can easily swap between these angles by adjusting the Folio Case.

What material is the Folio Case made of?

The exterior of Paperlike’s Folio Case is made with durable polyurethane (PU) fabric, while the interior lining is made with recycled microfiber.

How quickly can you get it on and off the iPad?

You can attach and detach the case in less than two seconds.
The Folio Case takes advantage of the iPad’s backside magnets for fast and easy installation and detachment.
To attach the Folio Case, simply open the front flap of the unit and place the back of the iPad against the back flap. The iPad will attach to the case magnetically.
To detach, grab the iPad by its edge while the front flap is open and the iPad is positioned on a flat surface. Your iPad will lift free while the Folio Case stays behind.

How does the Folio Case stay closed?

The flap of the Folio Case is lined with magnets inside and wraps around the iPad, which keep it closed.

Will the wake/sleep function still work with the Folio Case?

Yes. The iPad will automatically be put to sleep when the Folio Case is closed. 😴

Can the on/off and volume control buttons on the iPad be easily accessed with the Folio Case on?

Just OK not fabulous

I bought this case because I wanted a case that would work with the silicone pencil holders for the Apple 2 pencil. It does that well-the pencil snaps in cleanly and charges easily. However, I miss my previous zugu case which was easier to open and close, had more options for stand height and angle, and was sturdier. This one is pretty flimsy and not very secure in a stand up position. I am probably going to give up on the silicone pencil holder, which I love, and return to the zugu case. It is a trade off.
