MacRumors Giveaway: Win a Case for Your New iPhone XS, XS Max, or XR From Pad & Quill

We're doing a few special giveaways this week to celebrate the launch of the new 2018 iPhones, and we've teamed up with Pad & Quill to offer MacRumors winners a chance to win an iPhone case designed for the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, or iPhone XR.

Pad & Quill is refreshing its entire iPhone case lineup with new options for Apple's latest devices. The Luxury Pocket Book, Bella Fino, Heritage Bella Fino, and Traveler cases have all been updated for the new iPhones.

Bella Fino case for iPhone XS Max

All of Pad & Quill's cases are made from high-quality Full Grain American Leather with details hand-finished wood, marine-grade nylon stitching, and slim designs created to protect iPhones without adding unnecessary bulk. Many of the cases also come in multiple colors to suit a variety of tastes.

Luxury Book for iPhone XS Max

There are book-style cases with wallet options like the slim Bella Fino and Heritage Bella Fino ($89.95 to $99.95), and book-style cases with wood frames like the Luxury Book Wallet Case ($109.95) and the Heritage Pocket Book ($119.95), both of which look great and will develop a unique patina on the leather over time.

Bella Fino case for iPhone XR

The Bella Fino is the slimmer of the two cases because it holds the iPhone in place with a snap-on case, while the Luxury Book Wallet Case is thicker due to the wood frame.

Luxury Pocket Book for iPhone XS

For those looking for standard leather case, Pad & Quill has introduced the Traveler Leather Case ($59.95) for durable protection with a rugged look and no cover.

All of Pad & Quill's new case options for each of the new phones are listed below, along with pricing.

Pad & Quill Debuts New Leather Coasters for HomePod

Following news that the HomePod leaves white rings on some wood surfaces treated with oil or wax, Pad & Quill has designed and debuted new Leather Coasters that are meant to be used with the HomePod.

Available in two colors, Whiskey and Chestnut, the 4-inch HomePod Coasters are made with full-grain leather and offer a soft leather backing.


Pad & Quill's new coasters will prevent the rings that occur on some wood furniture due to a chemical reaction between the wood and the silicone used for the vibration-dampening base of the HomePod.


The coasters will also work with other speakers that include similar silicone bases and also leave white marks on surfaces, such as the Sonos One, but the coaster's size and shape were designed with the HomePod in mind.


The new Leather HomePod Coasters can be purchased from the Pad & Quill website starting today for $19.95. Orders will begin shipping out next week.
