    Beautifully Crafted

    • Written by from South Vienna

    The main point I would like to address is the issue of wear on this case. A lot of people are complaining of discoloration and it wearing too quickly. From my perspective, the case is rather gaudy when you first open it, and it only looks good after some wear. The light weird brown that it starts out as, turns into this beautiful shade of dark, almost shiny, brown. Akin to an Indiana Jones satchel. I wish mine would wear more quickly!

    Great lightweight case

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    This is a nice lightweight case that fits the phone snugly and looks beautiful! The leather is soft and wears in nicely. Some of the other reviews complain about the cases getting dirty but I mean that's gonna happen from everyday use. Big fan of this product!

    Love the Feel - Insane that it doesn't work with Apple Pin Adapter

    • Written by from Rensselaer

    I love the feel of this case, and that it keeps my phone feeling light and it looks nice. It would be nice if it came in more color choices. Unfortunately, I'm debating whether or not I should keep using this case. My favorite iPhone accessory is my iHome charger/alarm clock/speaker. Unfortunately, since this "Apple" case only has a small cut out at the bottom, the "Apple" pin adapter will not fit with this case on the phone. It floors me that this wasn't taken into consideration with the design.

    Terrible Case!

    • Written by from Boca del rio

    I bought the (RED), it really looks nice, but after 1 week the leather is so dirty. Save your money and get another case.

    Great Feel, Poor Durability

    • Written by from Thornhill

    I bought the saddle brown case in October and loved the look and feel. I don't mind the tight fit like some of the reviewers, however, the material gets very dirty in a short period of time. For this price, I would expect the case to be able to last longer. My guess is the black case is the best option with leather.

    It is clear Apple is not doing a lot of basic testing on their accessories which is really disappointing. I will go back to the more reliable aftermarket cases.

    dont buy the brown one

    • Written by from Mogadore

    after about a month the edges and sides are becoming black and it will not come off. I have tried water, soap, laundry soap, leather cleaner, rubbing alcohol etc...... so, unless you like the 'used' look do not buy this in brown

    Perfect Fit Perfect Case

    • Written by from Inver Grove Heights

    I don't understand most of these reviews....the brown leather case is a classy choice. It fits perfectly and snug. All the openings are in just the right locations and because the case is thin it does not add to the width of the phone just like it should be. It does rise up a little from the front screen which is what it should do when resting the phone face down on a table or desk to protect the screen. I have never removed mine since first installing it, I could see that the edges might get loose if you are constantly taking it on and off but you should not need to. The leather ages just like leather should, you can take a soft dish towel with a little water to clean it up by rubbing gently on the surface, it will dry and be clean. All of the ports are cut open exactly in the right place so I don't know why people are reporting issues there. This works for me perfectly and I like the look and feel of the quality of the leather. Get one!

    Great feel and fit but hard to keep clean

    • Written by from Spring

    This case it's well crafted. Beautiful designed and fit perfect on my iPhone 5s. I bought the yellow one since my iPhone is black and want to add some color. It looked great, but within days it started to show signs of dirt and it's very hard to clean! I clean my hands often. But I don't want a case that every time that I want to use my phone, I have to protect the protector.

    Beautiful, not quite there yet . . .

    • Written by from Ashland

    The texture of this leather case is nicely matte, you can grab and grip the iphone without it slipping out of your hand.

    The problem is the leather is not rigid enough to lay snugly against the sides of the phone. It gaps, allowing dust and stuff to wander in.

    Nice first try, Apple. I look forward to V2.

    Fits snug and well on the phone, and feels nice in your hand, but the FIRST time I had to take the case off my phone the interior plastic broke between the volume down button and the front of the case. Now the phone doesn't line up correctly inside the case. Don't waste $40 on a case that may break the first time you need to take it off.

    Don't buy this product

    • Written by from Caloocan City

    It's not worth the price I paid because stains and dirt cannot be removed even when you clean this product, you will only get frustrated. It's a scam to buy this product

    Apple does it again

    • Written by from fridley

    I honestly don't see why everyone seems to dislike this product, I'm a Marine and I get dirty everyday. I purchased the brown case seven days ago and it's still in perfect condition, even though I've dropped it twice. Like many proponents of this case have stated it's very soft, smooth, looks great, and what you would expect from apple products.

    Avoid this case

    • Written by from SAN ANTONIO

    This case looks nice all for about a week, then because of the leather, it starts to Tarnish in a way.
    Don't waste 40 bucks on this.

    Take your 40$, go to a tannery, and get 12 of them.

    5s case broken after less than 3 months, flimsy bottom

    • Written by from Hoboken

    Iphone 5S Gold 64GB, 5S Blue Case, first minute it went onsale.

    At first the case is very snug and feels great.The sides of the case start to turn black and worn over time.

    But once you start taking it on and off the pleather begins to weaken. The area at the bottom of the case where the headphone jack-speaker-lighting port will break eventually. Its too thin to withstand the pressure of putting on and removing the case.

    Now its past the return time - hopefully an Apple Store can help.

    Like a previous reviewer, I too had a "close encounter" with my iPhone 5S and a concrete floor, but the Apple case absorbed the impact quite well. Although I have to admit that I also have a Moshi screen protector, I believe that the case was the reason why my phone escaped unscathed. After reading about all of the issues regarding the lighter colored cases, I'm glad that black is my favorite pigment. Because the leather used for this case is aniline, there's not a lot one can do about cleaning scuff marks and such other than wiping it with a dampened clean cotton cloth. As for my black case, it just keeps looking and feeling better every day.

    Wears poorly, lightning adapter doesn't fit.

    • Written by from San Francisco

    I've now had the brown case for ~6 weeks and can honestly say that while the fit of the case is great, it wears EXTREMELY poorly. From the first day I had the case, the leather started darkening on all the edges. It's not dirty, but it looks absolutely AWFUL. Not to mention, if you drop your phone on rug, it can actually peel back some of the leather from the edges.

    Also, Apple's own 30-pin to Lightning Adapter (the one with the cable), doesn't fit the lightning port cutout on the case, and actually 'clips' the leather. So disappointing.

    I'm honestly shocked that Apple let such a mediocre product go to market. :(

    Love the worn and aged look

    • Written by from FOLSOM

    I notice that there are a lot of reviews complaining about the case getting dirty and showing signs of wear. Funny, this is the thing I love about the case. And in the end, it's authentic leather and is doing what it should be doing. If you want a case that looks pristine and new forever, move on, this is not the case for you. If you want a case that looks unique and antique and has character, this might be the one...it is for me.

    Please dont buy- Please stop selling this product

    • Written by from Jagadhri

    I never expect that apple is making this kind of quality product. i buy brown colour ,in a minute leather is coming off from corners even of normal use.

    Why not buy??
    1) Leather quality not up to mark and can come off with normal use
    2) Get dirty easily and not able to clean at home without professional leather cleaner products.
    3) Too expensive.
    People are giving good review on first use experences but latter the experence with product is too bad

    Please Apple u must review your quality control before lauching a new product as we have great expection from you and ur brand is our part of family

    Please stop selling for this product.
