    Yea, that is right: AWESOME!!

    The buttons are going to be a tad stiff guys at first and will break in I promise.

    I hear the complaints about different jacks not fitting, this never surprises me anymore that is why I went Airplay/Bluetooth on everything I own now.

    I have avoided buying a case for my iPhone 5. This is the first case I have seen that actually looks like it's a natural extension of the phone, rather than a clunky add-on. This case fits beautifully. The Apple logo on the back is subtle, but definitely lends to the feeling that the case and phone are designed together. Great case.

    Not compatible with lightning connector or dock

    • Written by from Chapel Hill

    Sure, the leather case is good quality leather, but its not compatible with Apple's own lightning connectors or docks, so you have to take it out every day to actually use your phone.

    I have purchased plenty of cases for all my iPhones and this case by far is the best. Quality is superb, has a very soft feel & texture. Highly recommended

    Pretty, useless = pretty useless

    • Written by from Washington

    The case is fine, expect...

    Come on: so obnoxious not to support Apple's own expensive thirty-pin adapters. Either incompetence -- more "elegance" over function thinking -- or a deliberate tactic intended to make obsolete all but the latest generation of products.

    In either case, annoying and lame.

    Shows age at an incredible place

    • Written by from Guntersville

    In terms of how it fits, you can tell is the first case designed to complement the iPhone and not cover it up.
    Unfortunately, that's where the good stops. I have on this case, the yellow color, or exactly 5 days, and it already looks absolutely terrible. I understand that weather will age and wear over time, but after five days my yellow case already has more gray on it than the original color. Will most likely be returning it later today.

    Great case - leather stains QUICKLY

    • Written by from Sherman Oaks

    My first impressions were that this was easily the best case I'd bought for an iPhone. Real leather, covers every inch it needs to with precision, felt like butter in my hands.

    Which brings me to the downside...unsealed leather takes in oils, like skin oil. I bought the brown because it looked the sharpest. 10 days later, I brought it back to the apple store for a black one because the brown had sullied so bad it looked like the case was 2 years old. IN 10 DAYS. It just absorbed every nanoliter of oil from my hands and there's no way to clean it off. It's inside the leather.

    So...beware of any light colored version of this case. It will age in microseconds.

    Its ok, for now.

    • Written by from LAWNDALE

    I had my case for a week and hadn't taken it off my iPhone 5. Today I wanted to clean my phone because I noticed dust was getting on the side of the screen. I took it off the way people had recommended (right side first). It was easy enough, but then I noticed that the case split on the small area above the headphone jack cutout. Something so simple as removing a case ended with it breaking immediately. Luckily, the employee at the Apple Store understood and gave me a completely new one in the box. The reason I'm rating it low is due to the fact that it took so little effort to break a case that is supposed to protect your $199-$399 phone. It makes me think how long this case will even last. Thank goodness for the 1 Year Accessory Warranty.

    Good Case

    • Written by from San Jose

    Good, protective case. My only complaint is that tiny particles of dust and crumbs get into the little gap between the case and phone. I liked how the iPhone 4 bumper covered those gaps to prevent from little crumbs and etc from getting stuck in there. Dust also gets into that little hole where that camera is. I also wish this 5s case was more grippy, especially when you place it on a table so that it doesn't slide.

    If Apple could just make an official bumper case for the iPhone 5/5S, I would be extremely content.

    EXCELLENT Apple!

    • Written by from St. George

    It's just like everything else Apple does. This is by far the best case I've ever had. I bought the black one and it fits my iPhone 5s beautifully. It fits nice and snug, not big or bulky, and I don't even want to take it off like I wanted to on the other cases I've owned. If you asked me I would say don't wait another hour-GO BUY ONE.

    Make sure you get a good one

    • Written by from Amherst

    I am about to order my third case. The first one, the leather was separating from the plastic surrounding the opening for the camera and flash. The second one looks like the leather has been creased in several places, making the surface uneven.
    Overall though, I really like the case. I just need to find one that doesn't have a defect.

    This is what I love about Apple.

    • Written by from Lynchburg

    Apple has this way of taking something that has already been done and doing it better. I've had every iPhone to date and only used a case with the first generation model. It was at that point when I realized that cases take away from the beauty of an iDevice. Slapping a big, ugly looking case on later generation iPhones was no longer a consideration as I much preferred the nude device to using any of the poorly designed cases I had seen.

    That was until they released this. In true Apple fashion, they designed a case that I suddenly WANTED on my iPhone. The luxurious nature and same attention to detail that goes into anything Apple creates, went into this case as well.

    The perfect, form fitting contours... the clean, minimalistic look... the elegant embossed Apple on the back... the holes cut out of the bottom edge precisely where the speaker holes are... and the choice of LEATHER as the material they'd use to construct this masterpiece of a case are everything I'd expect from Apple.

    I've never wanted a case on any of my iPhones until now.

    Great Case

    • Written by from Caro

    I've been using the 5S (black) case for a few days now and I can say that love it.

    The case fits perfectly with all holes lining up properly, as you would expect. The design is light and adds very little bulk to the phone. I love leather so the feel and quality of the material is top notch.

    I tested several earbuds and found that the cutout on the bottom did not interfere. I'm sure there some buds that may not fit but judging from my sampling most will not have any problems.

    The only thing I could say negative about the case is the fact that it's a bit difficult to remove. Otherwise, I love it and I'm glad Apple returned to the case making market. Their design prowess is second to none. Well done.

    Perfect. For me...

    • Written by from Seattle

    Expensive feeling, incredibly thin, beautiful to look at and to touch. I hate cases because they feel bulky and/or cheap. This preserves the sense of quality you feel when using a naked iPhone. Yes, leather changes over time...for the better. Love the scratches dings and scuffs, they are your history. Then thank yourself for being intelligent enough to scratch the $40 case and not your $$$$ phone!

    The case to me seems cheaply designed...it does have a nice leather finish but something feels off. When I took it out of the package I thought it felt very flimsy and light...not something I feel will protect my phone significantly.

    Also the black case in the picture the apple has a slight grey tone...however when I got mine it was all black and the apple just blends in....deceiving and I'm quite disappointed with that as I think it'd stick out more as an apple case and not a random one.

    Alright case, but still like my Incase Slider better

    • Written by from NOTTINGHAM

    I bought a black case the day they were available, thinking I may have found a case I like even more than my Incase slider but that wasn't the case. Here are my complaints about the iPhone leather case that will keep my using my Incase:

    1.) The power button is actually difficult to press with the piece of leather covering it.
    2.) The case is slippery and didn't make the phone feel secure in my hand.
    3.) The corners of the case barely go past the screen, which left me uneasy with placing my phone face down.
    4.) The case doesn't really balance on it's side or standing up when in use. This is maybe a small complaint, but I do actually stand my phone up quite a bit, and the Incase Slider does a really good job of this.

    I think this case is a nice option, but there is no doubt that I enjoy my other case more than this one, so it will be returned.

    Great look, great feel, worried about longevity

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I bought the case yesterday, and was very pleasantly surprised with the overall design of the case, how great it fits in my hand, the interior (although not so important) is a great addition, very soft to protect the back of my phone. The fit is really great, and the buttons press easily. One big concern though, is I just noticed the corners of the cover are already wearing out. I got it in blue, and the bottom corners have already darkened in only 24 hours. Dirt also seems to stain the material easily. Will have to see... I take great care of my products, but I use my phone a lot since I'm always on the run, bicycling, taking my phone in and out of my pockets, and it's important that it doesn't get damaged from basic uses or fabric stains.
