We're working to get as many of our glove materials as possible to work well with a smartphone touchscreen. Typically, smartphone touchscreens work by picking up the small electrical current emitted by our fingers - so materials which are thin enough, such as cotton, can transmit this signal but this is harder to achieve with thicker materials, such as leather. Below Is a breakdown of how the different materials we use interact with the screen of an iPhone 8.
