    Great case that works with thicker screen protectors

    • Written by from Ashburn

    I had originally bought 2 other cases looking for good camera protection - InCase and an Element Case. Problem was that the cases would push up the Zagg glass screen protector that i had bought. I like the Zagg since it's truly optically clear and tough. Downside is it sticks up more than plastic screen protectors. So, i tried the Apple case and it's perfect in conjunction with the Zagg. It fits well, feels good, and is very slim. If it holds up over time I'll be a real believer. So far so good. The case attaches primarily via friction fit, so nothing protrudes above the phone sides. It looks elegantly simple and is reasonably priced.

    Great Case

    • Written by from Greensboro

    I bought this case for my iPhone 5s and it looks and feels great. The suede inside protects my phone from scratches and the leather feels really good in my hand. The black looks great with the space grey iPhone. I will defiantly be picking up different colors for future uses. I'm glad to see Apple finally designed their own case for the iPhone.

    ok quality

    • Written by from San Juan Capistrano

    I got my case for my iPhone 5s, i got it in brown. I really loved it when i first got it but after a while the case stretched out and my phone slipped out of it easily. it also gets dirty very fast and has no drop protection whatsoever. But this is a good quality case.

    Plus and Minus

    • Written by from Columbia

    I have had this case for about 6 months. I really like the way it wraps around the phone. It feels like it should, tight. The buttons, for me were not an issue to press like other reviewers. It is a work of art (in Red). I buy anything red as I have had lots of family and friends get cancer. So, if you don't really need drop protection other than on carpet, this would be the case for you, as it really pops color-wise. So much for the plusses, now for the minuses.
    All of the colors (even brown), get a nice black ring develop at the base of the case and all the way around the edge, so if I had it to do over, I would get black as black does not show this weakness (as its black). I don't care so much about the ring, but the women in my life want me to wash it, lol, like that is going to happen, NOPE. I can live with the yicky ring and the ladies in my life don't have to borrow my phone, which turns out to MAYBE be a plus? I hope this helps folks make an informed decision.

    Not Compatible with Bose Headphones

    • Written by from Hoboken

    I loved the quality of this case when I first saw it. Purchased it and was so excited to get it on my phone. When I went to plug my Bose MIE2i in, they wouldn't fit with the case on. I then figured that my 2 year old headphones must be out-of-date so I bought QC20i from Bose and these don't work either. I just got off the phone with Bose and they told me that no model of their headphones will work with this iPhone case. Will be returning the case this week.

    Lightweight and sleek

    • Written by from Orange

    Like countless others, I have tried NUMEROUS cases for my iPhone. This beautiful, soft, lightweight case is by far my favorite. I have very small hands and together with the new slimness of the 5s phone, this case works perfectly. I have the Black phone/case and it looks great. The leather makes it smooth and sleek. So far no issues with dirt or grease from my hands, and I carry it in my purse pocket.

    Dirt Magnet

    • Written by from Hyderabad

    I bought a Blue Leather Case for my iPhone 5. The Leather Case feels and looks good. The drop protection level is also quiet good. I am careful about where I place the phone and handle the iPhone with care. I have used the case for ten days and it looks like some cheap over the counter iPhone case, mainly because of dirt adhered to the case. Due to matte suede finish the case, it tends to attract dirt at a very fast pace. Apple should certainly attend to this issue.

    Hole at lightning port may break over time

    • Written by from Raleigh

    The hole around the lightning port opening has a very thin strip of plastic framing the outside edge, and this minor part of the case broke within a couple months, only having taken my phone out of the case a handful of times. It's nice to look at, fits great, and is comfy in hand, but structurally unreliable in the long term.

    Nice Case

    • Written by from West Springfield

    Fits my iPhone 5 great. So glad Apple released their own cases (I loved the bumpers on the 4's). Didn't realize the case was one piece and it just places into the case, I like it better. The exterior buttons require quite a bit more force and good luck finding 3rd party cords to fit into the very precise hole.

    Incredible but lacks durability

    • Written by from Bath

    I love this case and I really like how it looks with my space gray iPhone 5s, it feels nice to hold and it seems to be rigid. However, the case will be badly damaged if it falls on a hard surface. My phone fell from my pocket to the ground and it now shows tears in the leather. I have used the case for a little more than a week but because of the fall it seems as if it had been used for a year. I would only recommend this case if you treat your belongings very carefully.

    not as durable as it shoud be

    • Written by from Indianapolis

    Nice and thin but can only survive 2-3 removals of the iphone until the small leather piece bridging the heaphone connection breaks. If you buy this case do so with the intention of never removing it.

    Also the headphone area is not sculpted so that many headphone jacks can not be inserted to complete depth

    Great But Expensive

    • Written by from Hong Kong

    This leather case is simply phenomenal. Great in-hand feel that is unmatched by any other cases of any kind and price. It matched my iPhone 5S so beautifully, from the layout to the cut-off part of the case... In addition, we hardly see the dirts when compared to other colours. However, if this case is cheaper, for example $29 instead of $39, I will have no more complain, and no one will.

    Don't buy unless you hate your iPhone

    • Written by from London

    I bought this case when I bought my iPhone on release day. Initially when it came it felt nice, but when the phone arrived I was hugely disappointed. For starters, the phone doesn't quite stay in place, the corners tend to pop up above the spot they are supposed to be. I'm not really one for dropping my $1000 phone but it happens, and when it does those corners get owned. You also have to practically warp the case and phone to get it off if you want to use any decent headphones. Apple recommended I buy this and the iPhone 5s charging dock and I did, but the phone won't actually for on the dock with the case on. For the $40 this costs you could get a much more functional case, but if you only care about maintaining the sleek apple look this is for you.

    Very Nice Look, To Bad it Blocks the Plug of My Headset

    • Written by from Saint Peters

    I like the cases very much cool colors, simple and elegant, VERY NICE. Have only one issue with them, not long ago I purchased the MIE2i Mobile Headset for my previous phone and now that I want to use this with this new phone and case the case blocks the headset plug jack from going all they way in to the jack on the phone; so they do not work. I like the case but I am thinking about returning it.

    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!

    Apple case iphone 5s red

    • Written by from Bishan

    Without a doubt very nice case. I've spent nearly 500+ over just on cases and apple has made on of the greatest.
    I only have two problem with the case.
    It does not fit perfectly.. With the side like loose.
    And it gets dirty veryyyyyyy easily. Only three days and my red case is become black. I take very good care of it. I try to clean it off but no luck.

    I would recommend you guys getting a dark colored one .

    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!!
