iPhone X Leather Folio Case at new low of $38

Amazon is currently offering the Apple iPhone X/S Leather Folio Case for $38 in Berry. Having originally retailed for $99, we’ve more recently seen it trending around $65. Today’s offer amounts to over 40% in savings, beats our previous mention by $8, and marks the lowest we’ve seen to date in any style. Apple’s Folio case wraps your handset in finished European leather that “fits snugly” around your iPhone with machined aluminum buttons to complement the design. There’s also two card slots, so you can store your ID, credit cards and more. Plus, the case will wake up your iPhone when opening the folio. Learn more in our hands-on review.
