Peak Design Everyday Case features: Comes in five colors | SlimLink magnetic locking technology
Peak Design is another company that makes excellent products with potential design inspiration from Apple in terms of clean lines and attention to detail. The Peak Design Everyday Case isn't just a case, but it has a small square on the back called SlimLink that includes magnetic locking technology. This gives the case access to a whole ecosystem of mounts and accessories, including tripods, car mounts, bike mounts, wall mounts, desk stands, and mobile wallets (including one with a kickstand).
Even with the small square on the back, the Peak Design Everyday Case still supports MagSafe passthrough. Like Nomad's cases, this case has TPU soft plastic around the edges and the camera bump. But on the backplate, the Peak Design Everyday Case has a nylon canvas fabric that is made from 100 percent recyclable materials. That means this case is possibly more sustainable than Apple's FineWoven, which is made from 68 percent post-consumer recycled materials.
I haven't tested the new iPhone 15 version of the Peak Design Everyday Case, but my ZDNET colleague Matt Miller has and he said this is "the case I buy first with every supported Apple, Google, or Samsung phone. I like them for the case themselves, but also for the car mount, bike mount, wallet/kickstand, and tripod accessories that they work with. Their new color options make the case itself a more attractive option too. I've had one for a couple of years and it looks just about like the day I bought it."
The biggest drawback to this case is that it has a cutout for the Action button rather than one of the nice metal buttons that Peak Design uses for the other three buttons. This makes the Action button a little less convenient to use, so if you think you'll use that new button a lot then you may want to wait for the new version of the case that will include a button rather than a cutout in Peak Design's next run of the Everyday Case.
The Peak Design Everyday Case costs $50 and comes in five colors: charcoal (gray), midnight (dark blue), sun (yellow), redwood (maroon), and sage (green). Matt has convinced me to want to try one of these cases. I'd like to eventually try the tripod mount as well -- especially with the new camera system in the iPhone 15 Pro Max.
