    Was a 5 star review until recently

    • Written by from Dollar

    I have the brown leather case and have absolutely loved it for the bast 8 months. Strongly advised it to all my mates who have asked as i adored it. Until last month. The case no longer fits securely on the iPhone, I dont know if its stretched because its leather, but it now slides off very easily. I did not think this was a big problem though until I accidentally dropped it. It was a small drop onto concrete, however, it was face down. Picked it up thinking nothing of it as it happened all the time and the case had always protected it, but then after turning it over I saw that the screen was completely smashed and the phone was pretty much out of the case. Was not impressed, rest of the phone doesn't have a scratch on it due to the micro-fiber on the inside of the case and the case is beautiful, however, now I have a iPhone with a smashed screen and I need to pay £140 to get the screen replaced by Apple due to their own product not lasting.

    Best iPhone case ever!

    • Written by from San Francisco

    This case is totally awesome for the iPhone 5s gold. Had a black plastic thingy from Verizon that cost as much but cool factor of zero. I don't get the complaints about "difficult to get on and off." Got it, slipped my phone in, and guess what... It fit!! No problema. It's leather and it's Apple. It's got a sweet feel--not like those plastic things. I love it. For reals. Buy it.

    Worst case ever

    • Written by from Frisco

    I was so excited when I bought this case because it was so beautiful and was advertised to offer quality protection. My excitement quickly shriveled to anger. The beige color quickly started to turn grey on the first day I had the case on my phone. Even rubbing the case would streak the once beige color to grey. Soon the case was grotesque and almost completely grey. People are surprised when I tell them that the case was once beige. Not only did the durability of the color prove to be inadequate but the protection aspect soon proved worthless. It is inconceivable that this case is an apple product.

    LACKS DURABILITY - a review in verse

    • Written by from VANCOUVER

    Do not buy the iPhone 5s leather case from Apple™ like me. You will take it to museums, and parks, and monuments, and hold it in every beautiful place, the leather wearing down even if you lay a finger on it, so that it can never go back to its original colour without you buying a new one. It will peel in the most beautiful way possible. And after you’ve had it for three weeks, you will finally understand, why you shouldn’t buy the iPhone 5s leather case from Apple™ like me.

    beautiful!!

    • Written by from New haven

    before you put it on your phone... within a day, the edges were worn away, i've had it about 3 months now and its just disgusting looking. i tried wiping the dirt spots off with a wet tissue, which just wore the leather away even more. extremely disappointed with this product, as i always have trusted all of apple's product. if i knew this prior to my purchase, i would have spent the money on a more durable case. just yuck.

    DISAPOINTED

    I wish I could just post a picture of this case here so everyone could see how terrible this case looks after using for 3 months.
    Waste of money.

    Disappointed in the leather case from Apple!

    • Written by from Toronto

    I have been buying products from Apple for years and have always been delighted with them. Six weeks ago I bought an iPhone 5S and this case to go with it. It cost $45 and I am really disappointed in the way the leather is breaking down and looking shabby.

    As with other Apple products, the style is lovely, but the colour is rubbing off the edges and the colour looks dirty-not pretty. I take really good care of my electronics and I just don't think this product is worthy of being called an "Apple" product. Very disappointed. Has anyone else been disappointed by these cases?

    Hands off!

    • Written by from Bedburg

    I bought this case in beige to protect my white/golden 5s. Fits perfect. And it looked absolutely great when it was new, a perfect combination of colours, but after a few days only the edges were already totally shabby! Now it´s three month old and there is nearly no leather left on the small edges on the front side or on the edges of the back... (and I don´t work on a construction site)
    I was fully aware that this case would be delicate, but I didn't expect it to be so rotten after such a short time. Now it has to be thrown away at the age of three months - it´s not worth its price and not the kind of quality, you expect from an Apple product! :-(

    Don't do it.

    • Written by from Long Island City

    I agree with the other reviewers. I bought the case to go with my champagne/white iphone. It looked amazing when I put it on, but within the first day the leather was already beginning to wear off on the corners and edges. Now that I've had it a couple weeks it looks horrific. And yes, like the other reviewers, I tend to take care of my things....this case is not made well.

    disappointed

    • Written by from Mechanicsville

    I loved this product out of the box but it has deteriorated way too quickly for me to support it. I give two stars because it has protected my phone well, but can't endorse the wear and tear and inability to clean it. I take care of my phone and case and I expect a case to last longer than the 6-7 months I've had it.

    Gets dirty quickly

    • Written by from Atlanta

    This case fits my iPhone great and feels really nice. However, it immediately starts showing dirt all around the edges. After using the case for about a week, I decided to get a new one. I would not recommend this case.

    iPhone case blue

    • Written by from Auckland

    Absolute waste of money - looked and felt good at first but after 1 week I was embarrassed to have this dirt trap on my phone. Apple think it's normal wear and tear. These covers seem to be made from a nasty re constituted leather product. Shame on you apple for selling this rubbish.

    Nice at first, not very durable

    • Written by from Blandinsville

    Out of the box, this case looks and feels beautiful. The leather is soft and has a premium look and feel and the case fits snugly over the phone. The buttons were a little hard to press at first, but got better with time. A few weeks later however, the leather began to discolor from the oils from your hand and the edges became very worn. Now the case is a dull pale color and the edges are totally worn. Still protects the phone but looks ugly. If you decide to purchase this case, you better be prepared to treat it like a baby if you want to keep it looking good.

    Very poor quality!!

    I don't recommend this case. At first it looked fine, but after about 5 days the leather at the corners was used and peeled of. Don't buy it!!

    Nice, soft but get dirty fast

    • Written by from Federal way

    The case is nice and soft I really like it, but the only things that it's gets dirty very fast and it is very hard to get stain away.. I wish they can do a better quality on product and leather it self. Otherwise works fine with the phone.

    My worst choice ever

    • Written by from athens

    Terrible quality the leather is already scraping off although I'm very protective with my iphone, and it looks dirty although it is only two weeks old and it cost me 43€. Τhis case is overpriced and reflects the bad quality of apple nowadays. I m really dissapointed deffinately not recommending this case or any overpriced case, my old 1€ cases were much better.

    Not worth the price

    • Written by from Salt Lake City

    After trying on about 15 other cases at the local Apple Store (thank you to the patient Apple employee!), I left with the beige cover. I should have listened to the other reviews posted here on the website though..the case fits my iPhone 5s superbly and even shows the gold trim just enough. However, only two weeks after my purchase I am beyond disappointed with the case and with Apple, which I never am. I would not suggest this case as it dirties easily and scratches the thin leather (making it tear) easily.

    Case lasted 1 week

    • Written by from canoga park

    The case only lasted 1 week. It was damaged just from placing the phone down, it's super light which is nice but it looks really bad once it gets damaged. I ended up getting a new case after just 2 weeks. I wish it was more durable.

    • Written by from Olmsted Falls

    Case fits the phone perfect and snug. The quality of the case is terrible... After a couple days the leather begins to run off around the edges and the buttons and just starts to look worn very quickly. For the amount of money that this case cost it is definitely not worth it at all.
