    I LOVE this case!

    • Written by from Frisco

    This was the first case I bought for my iPhone, and it's the only one I use! I love the feel of it in my hand. Makes the phone easy to hold onto, and it looks amazing! It doesn't add any size to the phone at all and it slides easily in and out of my pocket.

    Great job Apple!

    Great case for the money

    • Written by from Austin

    This is a wonderful little case that offers protection and style in one. Very well made and doesn't add a ton of bulk. I got the belkin screen protectors to use with this case and they work well too. If you're looking for a good quality case, look no further.

    Great in black

    • Written by from Hollywood

    After reading some of the reviews I was skeptical about buying one. I chose the black one because some people reported color rubbing off. My phone is constantly in and out of my pocket. I don't see any wear on the edges or corners. For me this is a great case.

    Almost the perfect case.

    • Written by from Germantown

    I have a hard time paying 40 bucks for a case but I will say that this one is well worth it. For me the purpose of a case has always been protection but the limitations of almost all cases is that it recesses the screen. Cases almost always add weight to a device but the leather feels great and still makes the phone feel really light. This case also forms a tight seal around the phone and the screen isn't hampered in any way. I have a white iPhone 5 and got the black case and it looks and feels great. Plastic cases and snap cases are always too sticky or too slick and pick up loads of dirt. This case would be even more perfect if it had a flip front cover like the new iPad cases. I have one for my iPad Mini retina and it is awesome.

    High-quality case

    • Written by from Atlanta

    Just got this case (black) for my black iPhone 5 yesterday.

    The leather feels great. The case fits so snug on the phone, doesn't slip at all and feels very sturdy. I've had 4 cases for my 5 before this, and this is by far the best. Covers all the important parts, and has the lip on front too to protect it when you lay the phone flat on a surface.

    I'm planning to get a white 5s in February, and I'm excited to be able to use this case on that phone as well.

    Luxurious protection

    • Written by from Waterloo

    I just got my space gray 5S delivered and got the black leather case to accompany with it. I must say it is absolutely gorgeous. Slim form factor, very soft and luxurious to hold and love the very subtle logo on the back.

    The best part for me though was how the buttons are also very nicely protected and the case on the whole snaps on really snug. I saw reviews on the other colours not that great, but if you're going to get the black it's highly recommended.

    Perfect

    • Written by from Alpharetta

    I have a 5s and I'm not a fan of cases and don't use them because I appreciate the design of the iphone. But my brother said you have to try this case its really good. He bought two and gave me the black one. I was like wow this is very nice feels just like the phone does without a case!

    Very sleek & thin just like the iphone I will say this is the perfect case. As one review mention it is hard to get off no biggie.

    Awesome case

    • Written by from Auckland

    Honestly so many people are complaining about nothing, it's a great case!!! If you use a dock or whatever don't buy this fantastic case because as you can see from other reviews it won't fit with the case on and it's just too difficult for some people to remove all the time... Must be weaklings??? It's awesome, be adults and don't cry over everything that doesn't need to have tears shed for. And light colours are great too, if you take care of your ish. Also I spent NZD $59 on the case, it's worth it apple thanks.

    Wow. Finally a great quality leather iPhone case!

    • Written by from Vancouver

    This surpassed my every expectation! I've had everyone iPhone since the beginning and tried almost every case out there. Nothing has ever come close to the slim fit, lightness, durability (granted only had it a couple of weeks) and great looks!

    I'm hoping this stands the test of time, but so far, absolutely no complaints! Looks and feels as great as the day I bought it!

    Works perfectly and feels great in my hand.

    Funny how people give it 1 star for things like it not fitting in docks and such.

    Apple at its finest...

    • Written by from Flint

    I recently upgraded to the 5S from the 4S and I got this case in black.

    First, I'd like to note that this case fits like a finely crafted Italian leather glove. I don't know how they did it but I'm sure only something designed by Apple for the iPhone could fit this perfectly. As for the reviews that say the case is too hard to remove, yes it is a little stiff, but only until you "break it in". And if it was any loser the leather would stretch and the fit would be compromised. It's like grandmas's secret recipe. You can put all the ingredients in and follow the recipe to the T but it just won't come out the same.

    Secondly, the color of the leather doesn't "fade" or "wear out." For those who complain about that, it simply isn't true because the leather is dyed all the way through. Sure it absorbs oils and lotions and whatever else is on the users' hands, but it doesn't fade. It's leather, what does one expect?

    Third, the price isn't high because 1) this is an Apple product and 2) you get the quality you pay for. If you want a cheaper case, feel free to spend $19.99 on something that won't last a month. You don't spend $2,000 on a MacBook Pro and complain that it's "too high" compared to a PC because, well, there is no comparison.

    I can't wait to see what Apple comes up with next.

    An iPhone Case Guru Loves This Case!

    • Written by from Spokane

    I'm ashamed to admit just exactly how many iPhone cases I've purchased and used throughout the life of my iPhone 5. From LifeProof to Otterbox and Case-Mate to Speck, I've definitely discovered pros and cons of each case. Although each case differs immensely in features and protective capability, I've never had the feeling that I'm utilizing the best case on the market nor have I been truly satisfied.

    After purchasing an iPhone 5s, I decided to purchase the Apple-branded iPhone 5s case (Black) and commit to sticking with it for the duration of the life of my iPhone 5s.

    I am extremely happy with the build quality, sleekness, and overall esthetically-pleasing feel of the iPhone 5s case. It complements the iPhone beautifully and is exactly what I've been looking for all this time. I'm finally satisfied.

    Granted, the protective capability of the case doesn't equal that of LifeProof or Otterbox, but the most extensive abuse my phone receives comprises sliding in and out of my pocket everyday (which is very easy to do with the aniline leather).

    Finally a case that is worthy of hugging my treasured iPhone; and it does it with a simplistic style that only Apple could understand.

    GOOD case -if yours got dirty CLEAN YOUR PURSE

    • Written by from LAWRENCEVILLE

    It's leather. Leather is a natural material that will absorb hand oil as well as all the nasty stuff that's in your purse or pocket. Most people appreciate the fact that leather develops a patina with age and will actually benefit from a little "road grime" . They pay hundreds extra for leather bomber jackets and the like that are "pre-worn". If you want a colored case that does not change patina over time - buy plastic. Leather is going to change with time. My wife bought one of these for her 5, and I think it ha held up very well and looks and works great - enough so that I'm going to get one for my new 5S.

    Love it!

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    I didn't get the blue only because just by the feel of the case itself you can tell that the lighter colors would get dirty so fast. I purchased the black one and I've dropped my phone a couple times and the case protected it just fine with no signs of wearing. Due to the price of the case and it being leather you would expect it to be the perfect case, but like I said the feeling of the product itself just gives up the durability. If you get any color I would suggest the black. I love that its safe and thin with this case!

    Love this case!!

    • Written by from Southern Pines

    I bought the blue leather case for my 5s and I couldn't be happier. I've had it a couple of weeks, and no, the leather is not stained. Maybe my hands are cleaner than average :-) It looks like new. I love the way this case feels in the hand, I love the way my phone looks with this case. The lightning connector fits perfectly and all the buttons work beautifully. The only thing that won't work with this case, for me, is my Square Reader. The cutout around that hole is too close. This isn't a huge deal for me but I think down the road Apple might consider making all the openings on this case a bit bigger. Overall, I find this case to be classy and perfect for my phone and me!!

    Great case

    • Written by from Moses Lake

    I bought this case at the same time that I bought my iPhone 5s, and it's the only case that I've used since then. I've seen complaints about the case showing wear, but my case still looks like new. That might be because I have the black one, which maybe doesn't show wear like the other colors. I prefer minimalist cases, and this one fits the bill. The case is light, and it feels great in the hand. At first I thought that I might not like the case because I usually prefer to use a case that leaves the buttons and controls on the side of the phone exposed, but that hasn't bothered me at all. I've also read complaints about the case interfering with the connection of headphones. I use Skullcandy 50/50 earphones, and they fit just fine. If I had to buy a new case today, I would buy this one again in a heartbeat.

    Amazing!

    • Written by from Kotzebue

    Apple probably wants it's consumers to use their phones naked so when they make a case they make it classy. The feeling of the case is amazing, feels very nice in the hand. I don't know what the other reviews are talking about when they say it gets dirty. I have a black one and it looks brand new.
