    Very nice case

    • Written by from GAINESVILLE

    Very well made case, fits the iPhone perfectly.. It is very snug, I can't see anything getting behind it.. Fit and finish are exceptional nothing about this case looks or feels cheap, this is what I would expect from Apple.. Adds very little bulk to the slim iPhone's sides and width.All sides and back of the phone are protected..Inside has very soft microfiber material and the outer leather has a very nice feel and look to it. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase

    Nice Case.

    • Written by from Canton

    I purchased this case for my wife and I for our iPhone 5. I'm very picky when it comes to phone cases and this is a good one. Fit and finish is outstanding as it should be being as it's designed by Apple. But what I really love is it's minimal design while still offering good protection. Finally a case that doesn't totally detract from the phones elegance. I hope in the future Apple offers a few more colors as the current scheme is a bit limited for my taste. Either way, nice job Apple.

    Great Case w/ a Couple Minor Issues

    • Written by from Ft Meade

    I was a little nervous about spending $40 on a case for my phone, but I'm thrilled that I did. I bought this case for my iPhone 5 and I just wish it had been available all along.

    The case is very slim. I don't have precision measuring equipment, but the case adds about 2.4mm to the thickness of the phone, taking it from 7.6mm to about 10mm; a hair over 1 mm thicker than the 5C. The lip of the case stands about 1mm higher than the face of the phone, making it safe to lay face down on a flat surface.

    The case is held to the phone by a ridge that runs all the way around the inside of the case which grabs on to the chamfered edge. This keeps the entire face of the phone clear, gives it a very snug fit, and makes the case solid enough that it feels like it is actually part of the phone. There is a little bit of a trick to getting the case off the phone, but it's not *that* difficult

    The leather provides a good amount of grip without making it too difficult to get in or out of a pocket. It doesn't actually feel much like leather though. It feels more like the high-quality rubberized backing of other, lesser smartphones.

    Volume buttons are easy to press, the lightning port and silence switch are easy to access, and as far as I can tell the holes for the microphone and speaker line up exactly, but older 3.5mm jacks have a hard time squeezing into the gap left for the headphone jack.

    My only two complaints with the case are that the power button is pretty hard to press, and if you sit down with your phone in your pocket the corners of the case will sometimes pry loose. Both very minor complaints, but worth mentioning.

    Buy this case!

    The best case I've ever owned

    • Written by from Brampton

    The 5S is my third iPhone, and I have researched/purchased several cases over the years. My case of choice for the last few years has been the Speck CandyShell. Although a little bulky, I thought it looked sleek, offered great fall protection, protected the body of the device, and had a lip on the front (to ensure the phone’s screen doesn’t touch a surface when face down).

    Apple’s iPhone 5S case still offers these important features, but does so in an elegant way. The case is light weight and looks amazing (I chose the black case to compliment the Space Grey iPhone). It smells like leather, but doesn’t have that obvious leather texture. It has a very small lip on the front to protect the screen, and has a thin layer of felt inside to protect the phone. I’m confident the case will protect my phone quite well if it falls, but unsure it has the durability to prevent anything more. If you require a water resistant case, or expect your phone will take a good amount of abuse, this case likely will not offer the level of protection you require.

    I highly recommend, as this is the best case I’ve ever owned.

    Nice but with flaw

    • Written by from Lakewood

    This is a nice leather case, albeit pricey. One major flaw is that with the case, the power button does not have a nice feedback. I think this is a pretty major design flaw on Apple's part.

    Great yet simple

    • Written by from Springfield

    Finally a great yet simple case. Fit is perfect. Doesn't cover any of the screen. I don't even notice it when it is in my pocket. Leather is great and makes it so you won't let the phones slip from your hand. Way to go apple

    Doesn't allow docks

    • Written by from San Francisco

    This case is a good snug fit, but it doesn't allow you to use any iPhone Dock. Including those designed and made by Apple. Horrible design flaw. Come on apple you can do better!

    Soooo disappointed

    • Written by from Norcross

    This does not seem like an apple product. Coming from someone who is a huge apple fan. The positives. The fit is very good and tight. I hate loose cases so was happy when i popped this on my new 5s. Thats were the good ends. Now on to why I returned this case. The first thought I had when I pulled it out the box is, "i paid $40 for this?" I own many apple products and use to paying a premium price for their products, but i'm ok b/c it's typically a superior product on the market. Not this case, unfortunately. The volume buttons and sleep/wake are covered like most cases, and are very unresponsive. You really have to mash them hard to operate, which that alone makes this case not very functional. the super thin leather, stretched over thin plastic feels very cheap (not like any other apple product) I'm sure the cost to make these are less than $5 and it shows. Considering what you can get on the market at this price point, I cant justify buying this case. I'm most shocked that apple would put their logo on this product. I wanted it to work so bad, but the black and blue one I bought for my wife and I's new 5s are going back. So sad.

    Great case, but top button hard to push

    • Written by from Houston

    Great, beautiful case. Fits wonderfully. My only complaint is that the top 'off' button is hard to push through the case. There's a notch in the leather for it but it's still hard to push. The volume buttons are not as hard to push, however I don't use them as much as I do with the top button. I'm hoping it will become easier to push as the leather wears. The button issue is the one thing causing me to give it 4 stars instead of 5.

    Best iPhone 5s Case

    • Written by from Dekalb

    I recently purchased this case a couple days ago and it's great! It fits the phone perfectly and feels amazing in your hand. The leather on here feels great and the material inside the case insures your phone won't get scratched up. A lot of these other reviews are misleading, this is the best case you're going to find for your iPhone 5s. Well worth the $40, Apple really got it right with this one!

    The best iPhone case ever!

    • Written by from Pewaukee

    I ordered this case along with my new 5s. It is far and away the best case I have ever used on an iPhone. It fits snug and tight and has a very elegant look and feel. All the buttons work beneath the case. I don't know how Apple could improve on the design.

    Be careful

    • Written by from SMITHTOWN

    Great looking. Great feel. Be aware that all those $40.00 30 pin to lightning adapters you bought to run your accessories ( including ones made by Apple) will not fit with this case on. I am so disappointed that Apple feel asleep at the wheel with this. I now must decide to either take the case off when I need to dock the phone or return the case. Looks like the case is going make. Real shame because the case could have been perfect

    Great case-not compatible with 30 pin adapter or iPhone 5s docks

    • Written by from IRVINE

    I absolutely love this case. It's slim, sleek and adds little bulk to the design of the iPhone. Only thing I've seen slimmer are the clip on "feather" case made by a competitor which provides very little protection to the corners and bezel.

    The feel of this case with your phone is great. It fits nice, tight and snug..... Until you try to use a 30-pin to lightning port adapter.... Won't work. The lighting port adapter's male portion isn't long enough to make the connections with he phone and charge it. It also will not work with the 5S dock from Apple.

    I really want to keep this case but may have to return it if I can't charge my phone using my alarm clock nightstand equipped with a 30 pin dock and lightning adapter.

    Best case ever

    I used to work for top iPhone case manufacturers. They do not even come close to this. It really does not need apple logo on the back. You can tell its made by apple without it. Crazy good!!

    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!

    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.
