    Stylish, minimalistic, compact, perfectly fitted, pretty protective.

    • Written by from NAPERVILLE

    This case is great; the best leather case I have owned. It fits my iPhone 5 absolutely perfectly, with nice hard, non bending edges (NOT like the Bumper Case which flexed and stretched), a great texture to the leather, good "grippyness", good accessibility to ports, and buttons that are pretty easy to push. Plus it is the only case that legally wears the Apple log which some might enjoy.

    The only couple of small issues are: the off/on button on the top can be a bit more difficult to push then without the case (not terrible though, easy to get used to), and the headphone jack is recesses and pretty deep, so some headphones might fit (although ever since the first iPhone most headphone makers I think are making their plugs fit recessed headphone in's). Don't worry about the case being hard to take off; it sits so tightly on your phone that you shouldn't need to clean behind the case at all.

    Sleek, Stunning, Sophisticated, and Excellent Quality

    • Written by from Hastings On Hudson

    As other reviewers have stated, I am so happy Apple has decided to make cases again.

    Generally I hate cases because it takes away from the beauty of such a beautiful piece of technology, but Sir Ives and his team have won me over on this one. This case compliments the iPhone's beauty instead of taking away from it...

    It is definitely of quality leather and does NOT have a "slippery" surface. It slides in and out of your pocket without the risk of getting caught up on fabric (giving way to user error) while providing a look of sophistication. It completely surrounds the phone, unlike some cases that leave the top and bottom exposed, leaving it open to damage in certain areas around the metal bezel. Overall I am extremely satisfied! Well worth the money. So much so, I bought two different colors! Highly recommended.

    I brought this case for my iPhone 5 in blue. I simply love it. It's a great case. I would recommend it. This case is made by Apple.

    Excellent Leather Case

    • Written by from Edina

    Purchased this case in black today for my black iPhone 5. I had been in the market for a genuine leather case for awhile. This case caught my attention right away. I had an Apple employee grab me a display case so I could feel and see how it was before buying. I thought about while taking a good look at the other cases available. A few of the other leather cases were appealing but weren't sleek enough for me. The Apple leather case was a perfect combination of quality and sleekness. This case feels great in your hands. The fit on the 5 is dead on. The top and side buttons work exceptionally well for a case. The microfiber inset is a nice touch also. This case is suppose to "wear" over time given that it is genuine leather. I am excited to see how well this performs in the long run. $40+ tax compared to the average $50+ tax from competitors.

    Nice elegant case

    This case was just what I was looking for. Very professional appearance and sleek which fits the phone perfectly. Case feels good when up to your ear unlike the silicone cases I owned before. A++

    The best case I've had so far

    • Written by from GLENDALE

    Well I always loved leather cases but they are pricey and flimsy. Apple got this perfect, the case is super sturdy and feels great to touch. I also love the apple logo on the back, makes it look like a part of the iPhone. I woild definetly recommend this case to anyone with a 5 or 5S. Apple got this spot on!

    best iphone case

    • Written by from Toronto

    The fit of the case is amazing and it's one of the first cases that doesn't feel 'cheaper' then the iphone itself.

    Love this so far - granted, I've only had it for a day, but it fits the phone perfectly, easy to take on (and off) and doesn't seem to show any wear and tear as of yet.

    This also works for iPhone 5.

    minimum design, soft to touch but sturdy as a protective case

    • Written by from Saint Louis

    There is a another review stating is slippery while I cannot agree. It's not a grain leather feel you would expect from handbags made of the same material, but its definitely not more slippery than the iphone 5/5s itself. I would say it feels more like a sheep leather, a satin finish. In general, it offers the right amount of grip friction you would expect from a protective case that is not oddly looked.

    The case does have quite good supportive material inside, so in case my phone is dropped corner-to-ground, the screen should survive. And it will take some effort to undress the case.

    One detail I'm not completely happy about is the feel of physical buttons covered by the case, the crisp feedback from button pushing is entirely gone, due to the design and the nature of leather compared to rubber. But it's not that serious so that you have to push uncomfortably hard to have the button do its job.

    Perfect case for a perfect iPhone

    • Written by from Cleveland

    This is something apple should have offered before it fits like a glove. Don't plan on taking it off quickly. I'm very pleased with it I normally hate cases but this adds to the phone.

    Great simple case...

    • Written by from West Seneca

    The case keeps the phone slim and well protected. Leather feels soft and comfortable. Looks great too! I would recommend this case if your phone will just run into the every day bumps. Not recommended for heavy duty protection.

    Case fits snug (definitely won't fall off). The case extends above the front glass enough to offer protection to the glass. As it offers protection it still allows you to see the aluminum frame. So for those with the gold iPhone 5s, you'll still be able to see the gold chamfered edge. Feels great in the hand and does not add bulk. Very sleek and smells like new leather. Couldn't recommend enough as a casual case.

    Great Case!

    • Written by from NEW YORK

    This case is the best leather case that I have been able to buy for an iPhone. It is the best fit for a case like this that I have seen. I have owned many other brands. This is the only case that seems to be truly made to an iPhone specification.

    Apple quality and style

    • Written by from Louisville

    This case is a perfect fit for the iPhone 5/s. The leather is real and the finish is comparable to a high quality wallet leather or executive writing pad. The feel is soft yet durable and provides the right amount of grip and protection. The case fits so well that it barely adds anything to the weight or size of the phone. This is a quality leather product that will surely get a beautiful patina over time, adding an even more luxurious look to an already high quality phone. I might buy 2 just to have more color options!!!

    Snug, Clean and Pretty Thin!

    • Written by from Seattle

    I just purchased the black case for my iPhone 5. It looks great with the phone and adds just a bit of texture for gripping. The buttons, even though they are covered by the case, work flawlessly.

    Additionally, when you put the phone up to your ear, the case doesn't dig into your skin like some plastic cases might. And when you lay the phone on it's face, the case prevents the glass from touching the surface.

    Overall, I would highly recommend this case if you are a interested in keeping your phone visually appealing. If your clumsy, buy the ottar box defender case. :)

    iPhone 5s Leather Case

    • Written by from Minneapolis

    I am glad Apple started to make iPhone cases again. The first bumper case was great. It fit well and protected the phone. The same goes for the new iPhone 5s Leather Case. It fits the phone perfectly. It extends just a fraction over the front edge protecting the ever dangerous side drop that can crack the glass. The leather feels great in hand also. Love that new case smell!
