How does the Apple X Leather Folio Sleep/Wake work?
I'm just curios how the iPhone X Leather folio works? Is it a magnet? Is it new tech? I'd love a tear down to see what component Apple is hiding inside to make the sleep wake feature of the Folio work.
Just wanted to add a note. I own both the Folio and a NODUS wallet case.
The reason I'm asking this question is because I fancy myself a tinker'r.
The Folio sleep/wakes the screen consistently and its a feature of the folio I've come to love. The NODUS on the other hand does not.
Meaning if this were something managed by the ambient light sensor, technically speaking the NODUS would work just the same as the Folio. The result is that when I place my phone in my pocket or pull it out while in the NODUS case it wakes.
I can see the is screen on before I even flip open the cover from the side. This never happens inside of the Folio. It stays asleep until I open the case. This in return creates an issue where I either have to turn off raise to wake or I have to sacrifice battery life. Neither of which is a great big deal.
Rather I'm just curios what method Apple is using to recognize the Folio.
In return, maybe I can engineer a way to add the feature to my NODUS. I'd love it if iFixit would tear apart a Folio to see what might be hiding inside or to provide evidence as to how Apple is magically doing this.
Is this a good question?
