On the case

If you’re like most iPhone users, you and your smartphone are pretty much joined at the hip. As useful as your iPhone is, it can’t cut a pesky tag off your shirt, tighten a loose screw on your glasses, or sign your John Hancock for you—or can it? An 8-in-1 multi tool, the IN1 Case contains: A blue or red pen, Phillips screwdriver, flat-head screwdriver, kickstand, nail file, tweezers, scissors, and a toothpick. Music executive Shervin Azodi came up with the idea for the IN1 Case while searching for a pen to sign a big record deal. As always, he had his iPhone in his pocket. But, there were no writing utensils easily within reach. Made of a tough polycarbonate to help protect against dings and dents and featuring a felt lining to prevent the case from scratching the surface of your iPhone, the IN1 Case is easy to put on and remove. But since the case is TSA compliant and so handy to have around, we think you’ll find that there’s really no reason to take it off.

    Hey everyone,

    We started IN1 Case to make your smartphone even smarter. Our case has a bevy of tools that are aimed to be helpful with everyday tasks. So whilst the IN1 case won't assist you in removing and rebuilding a gearbox from a 1985 GMC Pacer or help you slay, skin and cook a wildebeest, they will help with day to day tasks such as writing notes and cutting open packages. We believe you should "demand more from your case," and hope you agree!

    I love the idea, but I was wondering if it passes airport security or do you have to remove the case when you only travel with a carry on bag.

    Thanks!

    If there was a place to slide an ID card, debit card, and a little cash it would be ultimate case! Very inventive with lots of great tools!

    Would a card slip inside the case with the phone?

    Hi Ellie,

    That's a good idea! Unfortunately, the current case is not designed to hold any cards (and will not fit if you try and put a card between the phone and case), but we'll certainly pass along the notion to IN1 Case.
