    Got this Case for christmas, had to get a new one within 2 weeks and the leather wears away and just goes black. Not worth £35 at all

    I usually love apple products but this case is horrible. I have had it on my phone for only about 2 weeks and the colour is fading and peeling off the case. It is absolutely horrible and I will not be buying apple cases again.

    Fantastic Cover

    • Written by from Lisburn

    Just purchased new iPhone 5s and this cover to protect it. Fits perfectly on the phone, a little tight at first but leaves you feeling assured it won't be coming off anytime soon. Might be considered pricey but definitely worth the investment. 10/10 for quality. 10/10 for style.

    Good case however...

    • Written by from Derby

    Excellent case great fit. But as others have mentioned it turns a different color. However apple does state on the case this will happen.

    Overall a great product but maybe black is the color to go for.

    Fabulous but needs a little protection

    • Written by from Windermere

    OK, those who disrespect the fabulous Apple iPhone 5S case, first, wash your hands, secondly, clean your clothes, it's not indestructible, you need to be a clean person and now here's the big secret, when you buy one, don't use it until you have sprayed it with a decent quality leather protection spray, for example the one you can buy in the Clarks shoes store, give it a spray all over with that, treat it nicely and it will keep almost brand new.

    Worst £35 ever spent with Apple

    • Written by from London

    I stupidly paid the ridiculously inflated price of this cover to have an official Apple product. Initially delighted - though still swallowing hard at the cost - I was soon disappointed. The product's description warns that the appearance will change with use. It does not, however, tell you that the cover - even with the phone living exclusively in jacket or trouser pockets - will look dirty in little over a week. The corners on the back of the cover are now distinctly grubby and grey-looking. If they were designed by Apple to weather in that way then I fault the design. If that's the best Apple can do with real leather, then perhaps they should try PLU? I've now replaced it with something that looks just as good, and will continue to look good, and cost me a fraction of this price.

    Bad cover

    • Written by from Subang Jaya

    You proof your value at your iPhone 5s. However, I am terribly disappointed with the cover.

    I'm from Malaysia and I have sacrificed every cent that I have to buy this cover. If I know it would be happening, I will definitely buy cover from different company.

    Just what you would expect!

    • Written by from Rochester

    Premium product with premium price, however if you want a case that seriously compliments the iPhone 5S then you could do a lot worse. It looks good, feels good and fits good. The cut outs and button covers are precise and I have no trouble with third party headphones (Zagg), Charging Dock (Twelve South) or even a cheap 2mm to 2mm jack that I use in the car. Its a no brainer that because its Apple its expensive, but then so is your £500+ iPhone. I liked it so got one in brown and very happy with it.

    Beauty Fades... BIG TIME

    • Written by from dublin

    Was so excited to get the beige case. After one day of use. ONE. It started to tint a darker colour. Now, the entire edge of the cover is an awful muddy brown while the rest of the case is still beige. €30 for a case whose appearance will change over time. I thought this would mean some scuffing over a year. NO. It's turning black.

    Gets so dirty

    Good quality feel, but gets so dirty. Thought it might just be me until I bumped into someone with exactly the same issue. Disappointing

    Well worth the money!

    • Written by from Pontyclun

    I was very hesitant about buying this case after reading the reviews on this site so I went to our local apple store to have a look. Very pleased I did - the case is well made and tailored perfectly for the iPhone 5s. Fit couldn't be better. If you want a case to put on and off regularly it may not be for you but otherwise I can't fault it! Lovely leather too :)

    Really good product

    • Written by from Bourne

    I bought one of these for my iPhone thinking as it was Apple it would be good quality. I was not disappointed. It fits great, looks good and really does feel nice in your hand.

    I understand where people are coming from, the cut outs are small and if you have any 3rd party accessories then they may not fit, I haven't so it's not a problem for me.

    Also, I agree that it starts to look rough after a few days, I don't know what people expect though, it's coloured leather and being genuine leather it's not going to stay looking brand new. I don't know what people expect Apple to do, breed some super cow with extra tough skin. I kinda like it looking 'distressed'! How long do bright coloured sneakers look brand new for, this thing is held in a grubby hand rubbing in the pocket of coloured jeans etc all day , of course it will affect it.

    The only reason I did not give it 5* is the price.

    Good idea but poor product

    • Written by from Penryn

    I bought this expensive case with my iphone 5s as I wanted a good quality case for it. Both me and my partner bought one each so I have seen that the product quality does vary. My partners one fits the phone well and the buttons are easy to access. Unfortunately my case is extremely difficult to put on and off and I struggle to press the buttons around the side.

    Although we both have different functionality from the case, both cases (after a week or so) started to look really grubby and not as at all the standard you would expect from apple. The colour has really faded.

    Overall, the product feels nice to hold but it's pot luck as to how functional you will find it and they will start to look old and worn very quickly if you go for a colour other than black. I will definitely be changing the cover.

    Looked great to start

    • Written by from Hailsham

    for the first couple of days the product red case looked great,

    now it is over 2 weeks old, it looks old and dirty, and time to get a new one.
    if you want your iPhone to look smart don't buy one of theses cases unless you want to by a new one every week.

    really disappointed with this,

    You have let me down Apple.

    Love it!

    • Written by from St Helier

    I know this case may come with drawbacks i.e. tight audio jack and lightning bolt connector connector but for me I prefer it, this means my phone is better protected and is covered more with the prepossessing leather that makes my iPhone look like a piece of art.

    Hands down the best case I have ever owned ( and I have been through a lot!). Maybe a little expensive at £35 but after using it for a week or so and appreciating the quality, it's worth every penny.

    Black iPhone 5s Case

    Lovely case, after surgery with a Dremel

    • Written by from Reading

    The case feels and looks good. Very happy with it.

    As others have said, it doesn't work if you want to use it with a dock, or come to that with Apple's Lightning adaptor for old-style iPod leads. A couple of nerve-wracking minutes with a Dremel cutting disc sorted that out.

    I also had to ream out the hole for the headphone socket. I imagine it's intended to work with the Apple headphones, but the slightly larger plug on my Bose phones wouldn't fit.

    Now that's all done it is at least functionally adequate.

    But these don't seem like subtle design points to have missed. Hence the rating...

    Terrible Flaw

    • Written by from London

    Bought one for me and the missus.


    1) does not fit into any docks. Case has to be removed. If you have to do this several times a day, it is VERY annoying.

    We have an old iPhone 4s charger in the house which has the lightning adapter on it. This also doesn't work with the case. UGH!

    2) Because of the flush fit, it is impossible to remove the case without creasing the leather and leaving a permanent mark on it.

    Been using apple products for 15 years and been very happy with them until now.
