    AMAZING!

    • Written by from Malden

    The case is super thin and feels sturdy. If you like the look and feel of a "naked" iPhone but want to protect your iPhone then this is the case for you! I have owned otter box on every Otterbox I've ever owned and they are great cases and dropped my phone several times without breaking but always hated the bulk. I can't say anything yet about how it holds up to dropping the phone (don't plan on trying that either!) but definitely one amazing case. I just enjoy my 5s more just having this thing on. PS if you are like my wife then maybe you should just stick with a defender case lol, otherwise it's a great buy!

    Nice but no thanks

    It’s a nice case but I cannot plug in my Bose ear buds, car charger or the adapter. What a nice forty dollar piece of junk. Way to go Apple!

    A very classy case... obviously a Jony Ive design.

    • Written by from Louisville

    I ordered both the silver iPhone 5s and the black 5s case from the online Apple Store. The iPhone 5s arrived on Wednesday. The iPhone case arrived today.

    I could not be more pleased with either purchase. I have owned the iPhone since the first model (specifically: the 1st and 2nd iterations, the 4, and now the 5s). I have also owned SENA leather cases. SENA makes a fine leather product. This is the first iPhone case that rivals SENA's products, IMO.

    Most of the criticisms I have read of the iPhone 5s case are simply nitpicking. I find the tactile response of the volume controls and on/off button to be just fine. The case is close fitting (a good thing for drop protection) and not THAT difficult to remove. A couple of YouTube reviews of the case demonstrate the optimal procedure for removing the case. It takes me about 15 seconds.

    As for the staining and scuff issues... this is analine leather, folks. Go online and do a bit of research. The result is a non-glossy, buttery-feeling, fine leather case. Yes, it will absorb both finger oil and dirt over time. The package cautions that the appearance will change over time. That is the nature of the beast. Some people consider this to be a "feature" of the material. It acquires patina and character over time.

    I also find the iPhone 5s case to be comparable in price to similar SENA snap-on leather cases.

    In summary: A classy leather case that will provide moderate drop protection. A winner!

    4 out of 5 senses approve

    • Written by from Menomonie

    Looks great
    Feels great
    Sounds great (does not distort phone speaker)
    Smells great

    The case fits perfectly on the 5s. It REALLY keeps the phone nice and slim. The lip does not touch the screen, so a full screen protector works just fine. No need to get a case friendly screen protector. The case ports may not fit aftermarket plugs, but I've owned many other cases that didn't either. If you bought an Apple phone, want this Apple case, then use Apple plugs. Its that simple.

    Quality surprise

    • Written by from Latrobe

    I just opened my product and fit it to my phone and the first things that went through my mind were that it fits like a glove. Probably the best fitting case I've had for my iPhone yet. I own the 5s and the case allows for the metal edge to show a little bit giving it a nice touch. However I was displeased with the quality of the leather. I had thought it would be a heavier duty style leather but it's really not. Although it is lightweight. I suppose it comes with the territory of the aniline dye used to color the leather. My worry is that the dye will eventually wear away leaving ugly blemishes. But overall a nice buy. I would give this a 5 star rating but I've yet to use it long enough to see the durability come into play. Feels good in the hand, fits well, looks nice, we've got a winner Johnny!

    Best iPhone Case Ever

    • Written by from Longmont

    I've had many, many cases for all of my iPhones and this is far and away the best case yet. This isn't a case for maximum protection, it is a case to protect the 5S from scratches. It also gives your 5S a really nice feel in your hand - much better than hard plastic or rubber.

    I did find one downside. The hole for the headphone jack is a little small. I had to snip off a little bit of rubber on my Bose IE2 to make the jack fit.

    The best case...

    • Written by from Boca Raton

    This case fits great, looks and feels elegant! I am going to get some more colors but It is really hard to get off to swap them out. Great job otherwise! Thanks Apple.

    Well worth my $40

    • Written by from Charlotte

    So far I'm loving this case. The fit is uncanny, and provides great grip! I'm looking forward to seeing how the leather ages. I haven't dropped my phone at all, and I haven't been able to find any useful information regarding how well this case protects the phone though. Overall I love this case, I would seriously recommend you get this for your 5 or 5s (there is also a version for the 5c).

    Excellent - buttons work great in this case

    • Written by from Athens

    Got this case when I bought the 5S on release day. It's awesome! Handsome leather and a snug fit. Leather smells great and looks great on the phone. I especially like that the buttons work so well in this case. I like that I can feel the click feedback when I press both the volume and power buttons when my phone is in this case. Finally I have a leather case for my iPhone that fits perfectly and looks terrific. Adds almost no bulk and provides just enough grip and slip resistance. I like it so much that I plan to buy another to keep as a backup. Highly recommended. I hope Apple continues to make these same cases for this and future versions of iPhone.

    Well done!

    • Written by from Fort Worth

    I have an iPhone 5 and my very good but a bit worn out by a couple of half marathons 12 South cover was giving up the ghost. Last week's iOS7 update gave me a virtual brand new phone and this iPhone 5s case completes that feel. Luxury and ruggedness. Nicely done, Apple.

    Really, really nice!

    • Written by from Doncaster

    First of all, this case smells amazing! The fit is very tight but perfect for the 5/5S, the volume and power buttons are covered up but remain just as easy to use. There is a very slight lip over the front of the phone meaning the screen won't be damaged if you put it down face first.

    Just for info, I have a front and rear Zagg protective film on my phone and it makes no difference to the fit.

    I thoroughly recommend the iPhone 5S case.

    Great case!!

    • Written by from Arlington Heights

    It's a very good fit and quality, however I did find some inconsistencies with 3 different cases. But the 3rd case finally seems almost perfect and this is because the home button needs extra force to get it to work. Not a big issue, but adds to some discomfort, when you have to press extra hard each time to make sure your phone is locked. Otherwise, a great product overall.

    Fabulous Case

    • Written by from West Valley City

    I never use iPhone cases because they are either too bulky or hard to get out of my pocket because the material is too sticky.
    Enter the new iP5 case - svelte, well made, fits perfectly and is quite good looking. I can still put my iPhone in the side pocket of my carpenter pants with no problems and it is easy to remove.
    In my opinion...the perfect case. Well done Apple!

    Not worth it

    • Written by from WASHINGTON

    This case is slim, which is a plus. However, just from sliding in and out of my pocket all day, schmutz and lint get visibly trapped between the inside edge of the case and the phone frame itself--unsightly and annoying. I'm going back to my old "bumpers"-style case, which has a less bulky feel and more industrial texture than this new leather one. Also, the embossed Apple logo on the back of this case appears in the online pictures to be a slightly lighter shade of gray than the rest of the black case. In fact, the Apple logo is exactly the same color as the rest of the case; it is merely pressed into the leather and, as such, is barely visible.

    Hard to press the buttons

    • Written by from Tracy

    The quality of the case seems very good. However, with the case on, it is little hard to press the power on buttons and volume buttons. With iPhones 5s, you have the option to double click on the home button (using fingerprint scanner) to turn the phone on.
    With so many good reviews, i'm thinking of trying it one more time. It could be that mine is defective

    Perfect

    • Written by from Stockton

    Camera cutout is not huge, there is no "lip" overlapping the border of the screen (which is what I prefer), and microfiber on the inside which gives you relief that your device will not get scratched.

    This case overall was built above my expectations. One thing to keep in mind is that almost all aftermarket Lightning connectors probably will not fit with the case on, and you will need to use an OEM Apple Lightning cord.

    Bezel shows with this case

    • Written by from Holmdel

    When looking at the screen you can see the thin silver bezel around the phone when this case is on - something I regard as visually distracting. I purchased the space gray model specifically to avoid the white around the screen (with the white models) and now have this issue. When looking at it on the website the bezel does not show (all you see is the black screen and black case around it). This is a great form fitting case but would have preferred it covering the bezel.

    Issue with headphone jack and lighting adapter

    • Written by from NORWALK

    I have the lighting adapter (made by Apple) that fits on the old 30 pin, well guess what, it doesn't fit with this case on.

    Also I have a pair of Sony MDR headphones, guess what, it doesn't fit the headphone opening. I would imagine most studio or over the ear headphones won't fit this case. Amazingly designed cases shouldn't have these issues, or at least support your own products.
