Moft recently launched its latest accessory from Apple, a smart origami-style case meets stand that offers useful versatility to your iPad in a simple design. I’ve been testing a Snap Float Folio over the past few weeks that features four ways to levitate your iPad Pro, Air, or mini using secure magnets.
Moft Float Folio for iPad specifications

Materials and construction
Moft vegan leather has been used for the Float Folio and is smooth and soft right out of the box. I found that it lived up to its claims of being scratch-resistant, and I didn’t put any scratches on it in the month I’ve been using it regularly.
I love how clean and simple this paper is with a really thin form factor. It does not add bulk or weight to your iPad but offers four different stand positions with clever corner folds.
The fit for my 12.9 inch iPad Pro is precise and the magnets provide a strong connection to keep your iPad securely in place.
With such a unique design, it took me a little practice to get the hang of turning the Float Folio into its various shapes. Fortunately, the company includes a handy instruction card with photos that makes this process much easier.
While all four configurations are useful, the 3.6-inch floating mount quickly became my favorite. Here’s what the stand looks like from the back in the up position.
On my desk or nightstand, it’s really a relief to be able to float my iPad close to eye level with this slim folio. It also provides a great experience in the kitchen, workshops and more.
Float Folio’s streamlined features make it a great choice for travel. The slight downside to the higher mode is that if you’re tapping on your screen a lot, there’s a bit of a wobble. But that’s part of the trade-off for functionality in such a thin paper.
Here’s what the floating scene height 2.3 looks like:
It offers more lift than most iPad Folios but has slightly more stability than the floating 3.6 above.
And I still enjoy the more traditional 20 and 70 degree angles offered by other papers:
One downside to sheets like these, there’s no protection in case you drop your iPad on an edge or corner.
However, as a solution, Moft offers a slim magnetic Snap case for the iPad that pairs with the Float case if you want to add edge and corner protection and also store your Apple Pencil.
Moft Float Folio for iPad conclusion
Moft Float Folio offers a lot of functionality in a modest package.
- Four iPads stand in a very lightweight sheet
- Soft and durable vegan leather
- Value for travel or at home/office
- reasonable price
- Slightly wobbly when tapping the iPad while using the 3.6″ floating top
- Does not provide drop protection for iPad edges/corners (Optional Snap Case pairs with Float Folio for full protection)
Overall, I give the Moft Float Folio for iPad a rating of 4/5.
You can get your Moft Float Folio for your iPad Pro, Air, or mini now direct from the company with their holiday promotion offering anywhere from $10 to $60 off.
