TidyTilt+ for iPhone 5 pre-production update

Posted by Zahra Tashakorinia & Derek Tarnow (Creator)

Hi Kickstarters,

Thank you for voting on our new TidyTilt+ design for iPhone 5! Your feedback has been really valuable to us. The clear winner is the full-back TidyTilt+ case (option 3) from our previous update.

We’re back from working with our manufacturer in China and have some new photos and details to share with you.

We made prototypes of options 1, 2, and 3, to test how each functioned and felt in our hands. We’re happy to report that the option 3 prototype was the winner in this regard as well. It offers the most protection for iPhone 5, as well as more surface area for the magnets to cling to.
So, we’re pursuing this design for TidyTilt+.

Now, we have pre-production hand-made samples in-hand, which we’ve been testing, as we wait for the injection molds to be made. Check out the photos below - we’d love to hear your thoughts!

We’re scheduled to begin final production in November, and will let you know how to pre-order as we get closer to launch.

We’re also hard at work on other new products, designed to further enhance your everyday iPhone experience. These will be compatible with original TidyTilt and TidyTilt+! We’ll keep you posted.

      Hey, I appreciate the work you've been doing and I'm writing to thank you. My tidy tilt has been great so far even though there has been some collateral damage due to the magnetic field induced by the tilt itself I suppose. My iPhone never had problems and since I started using the tidy tilt it began to block and reboot by itself.. at first I didn't think about it but I noticed that after removing the tidy tilt everything seems to have gotten back to normal.. In the end don't know if it really was the tidy tilt, I'm writing to make you notice this hoping to make it better.

      Cheers, Luca Funari

      This looks awesome. Will you be making the TidyTilt+ for iPhone 4 as well? I don't foresee myself upgrading my phone for a while yet but I much prefer the case rather than the glue-on frame.

      sounds as though you have done some great work.
      may i ask if it is at all possible for me to change my 2 tidy tilts for the new ones, as i now have the iphone 5.
      i did tell you this a while ago but you still sent me the ones to fit the iphone 4s.
      looking forward to your reply,
