If you are on Apple’s Employee Purchase Plan (EPP), you can get the Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max Clear Case with MagSafe for S$67.41. That is equivalent to roughly a 10% discount.
Of course, I need to get a case for my AirPods Pro, but I wanted it to cost less than S$10.
I discovered a shop named Veticore on Lazada which specialized in AirPods / AirPods Pro cases.
For the first time, Apple has made the official clear case available for the latest iPhones, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
Apple debuted the official clear case for the iPhone XR last year to showcase the colorful designs of the iPhone XR.
It is retailing for JP¥3,110 (JP¥2,880 before tax), but if you spend more than JP¥5,000, it is tax-free. On top of that, if you pay by VISA credit card, you get an additional 5% discount.
If you have bought the Power Support Air Jacket from Apple Store Online or from official Apple Stores, you will realised that it is actually Air Jacket Force. Power Support Air Jacket Force is an exclusive item available only in Apple Stores.
The difference between the normal Air Jacket and Air Jacket Force is the raised bezel on the case that protrudes the screen a little (not flushed with the screen). This ensures that your screen is slightly off the surface of a table if you decide to place your iPhone 6/6 Plus screen facing down. Today I learned (TIL) that the term for that is called “lip“.
I have been using the Power Support – Air Jacket Set (Clear) for iPhone 5/5s for quite sometime and I was skeptical about finding another clear iPhone 5s case that is just as good.
I was surprised that the Snugg iPhone 5s Ultra Thin Clear Case was pretty well built considering it is only retailing for US$14.99 (excluding shipping).
This is my first time using the Power Support – Air Jacket Set (Clear) for iPhone 5/5s. I got it when I was in Thailand from Siam Paragon for TH฿990 (S$40). It is selling for S$59.90 in Singapore, and in case you are wondering, the one I got in Thailand is definitely original.
Despite this being a set which comes with one Power Support anti-glare screen film and one crystal film, I am not using it on my phone. Instead I am using the Spigen Screen Protector GLAS.t NANO SLIM for iPhone 5/5c/5s (next blog post).
