Magnetic Appeal

Getting a cover for that new gadget will be on high on people’s holidays shopping wish list.

Pad and Quill have things covered in that area of the market with their Octave Slim Magnetic Case looking particularly good for an iPad.

The construction is solid with a craft-ship of a high standard that Pad and Quill has a deserved reputation for.

What’s best about these devices’s design is the way they deal with the Apple Pencil. It’s left in place where it’s charging and the case cover just extends over it to make sure it stays in place. It’s such a good simple idea that I’m surprised that other cover manufacturers haven’t copied it.

The other design highlight is the magnets that keep the device attached to the cover as well as trigger the steppe wake function.

Solid design ideas and execution form Pad and Quill.
