    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.

    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.

    Huge surprise but in a disappointing way.

    • Written by from Bakersfield

    I have been waiting for a leather case that wraps around all the edges of the iPhone 5 for a while now. When I heard that Apple was finally releasing one on the same date as the iPhone 5s I got super excited. The excitement for the leather case was actually more than the iPhone 5s itself. When I got to the store though I was very upset. The case looks more like foam than leather. So much in fact that when I saw it I didn't believe it and was looking for the actual leather one.

    My review got 2 stars instead of 1 because it does wrap around the case all the way and does hold well but it will not be replacing my leather cases that leave the edges exposed.

    Dirt and Patina aren't the same thing

    • Written by from Toronto

    This case fits and feels great and really enhances the design of the phone, but I'll likely be returning it.

    I bought the tobacco color because I thought it would age richly like a nice wallet, but this aniline leather doesn't behave as expected. After four short days of careful use it looks filthy and tired, not patinated and 'broken-in'. I've tried leather cleaner/conditioner and it has little effect. Disappointing.

    DIRT MAGNET!!!

    • Written by from Sydney

    The case fits your phone perfectly and looks great for about 5 days and then it looks like it's been thrown into mud. I am returning this case
    For a black one. I am very disappointed with apple for this whole line of cases yes it should weather and age but not within a week!

    So disappointed

    • Written by from medellin

    I feel very sad because I bought the Brown Case, and in less than two weeks and changed his appearance is very ugly and unpleasant. It is the first time I feel disillusioned with some of the Apple store.

    Liked it at first

    • Written by from Cheshire

    I liked the style of this case very much when I first got it, although it was really tough to get on and off. When I took it off it squeezed the buttons so hard my phone would try to shut off. It would also randomly turn up the volume and make the volume buttons stick. After having it for maybe less than 6 months, it's now just starting to fall apart. The leather cracked near the vibrate switch, so it's loose. Now it comes off too easily. I thought it was pretty expensive and I hoped it would last awhile, but i'm already in the market for a new one. Disappointed.

    Horrible!

    • Written by from Maple Shade

    Fits really tight to the phone, and the case is hard to take off.... Also the case gets very dirty and hard to keep clean.

    Amazing case guys..

    • Written by from SALEM

    Im sorry but for people who are saying this is a bad case its really not! I love the feeling in my hand it feels amazing.. I bought it when i just bought my iPhone 5S 64 GB as a just for now until i get otter box but this protected my phone so well.. I'm not going to get otter box! I went to turn the flashlight on my phone on and it flung out of my hand up to ATLEAST 7 feet in the air.. hit the ground right on the front screen then bounced and the front got hit at least 3 times.. before it finally landed in the snow.. and its still perfect... the case did crack though..BUT its better than shattering my case.. i love this case guys.. its amazing don't let anything else discourage you.. Great case to go with iPhone!

    Bad case - it tears!

    • Written by from Harris

    My 1 month old case has just tore. The case has a weak point next to the protuberance that covers the volume buttons of the iphone. When I was taking the iphone out of the case, it tore in this weak point (no, I didn't use too much force, or bended it too much, and I think this was the 5th or 6th time I took the iphone out of the case). Don't waste your money.

    Headphone and Aux Cords will not fit!!!

    • Written by from Marshalltown

    Headphone and Aux Cords are not fitting in this case. I like the touch of case but am surprised with the fact that apple can have such a bad quality controls. On top ppl in customer service have no idea about the problem even if it is marked in reviews.

    Nice case, but needs to be darker

    • Written by from Bowmanville

    The colour of the brown case is more like "moccasin". It shows wear and dirt on the corners a bit. If it was a darker brown, it would be 5 stars. I've had mine for 2 months. I definitely would not recommend any of the lighter pastel colours. Black would not have the problem.

    The case itself is great. Light, thin, good grip, nice thin lip to protect the front so you can put it face-down on a table.

    Some people say it is hard to remove the case, but it is not too bad. Just pop the bottom out first. You do have to pry the phone out a bit after that, and it usually trips the silence-ringer switch, but it is good to know that the phone won't fall out of the case on its own.

    Excellent!

    I have the brown case on a black face 5s, this is a perfect fitting case! I've had it for about a month and it is starting to get that rich patina look on the contact areas so it's starting to look like a real nice leather...

    Very nice case, but expensive for what you get

    • Written by from Calgary

    I just finished using this case (Red one) for one month (and overseas for 14 days). I read all the reviews prior to buying it and the biggest fear was the case would show 'wear" very quickly. I used the phone as my primary camera on my trip, so it was in/out of my pocket each day many times a day (on the plane, train, bus). So I think this is about as much usage per day as possible.

    The first two weeks while at home, it stayed very clean and fresh. I drive at home and use it very lightly. After my trip, it looked like it was "well used". The color changed to a deep red (rather than bright red). There were many marks on the edges surrounding the face. The back had slight discoloration for parts that were dirtier (I cleaned the case each day with a towel). Apple's description on the box does say the product will change color as it is used (I don't have the exact text in front of me), so this was expected.

    Only slight concern was the leather was slightly pulling away around the top of the black ring that surrounds the camera lens. I took it to Apple store after my trip and the rep was nice enough to change it for me. This is when looking at a new case beside the used case that it was super obvious with the changes in color/wear.

    I would have given 3 stars for the product overall, but since the rep changed it for me, I gave it 4 stars. If the price was a bit lower, I would give it 5 stars.
