    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.

    Like the case but lightning adapter connector wont reach!

    • Written by from BELMONT

    I have this case on my 5, my 5S is shipping soon. But I tried the 30 pin lightning adapter while in the case and it won't reach/connect!!! Wonder if the 5S lightning connector in the base of the phone is closer/different that that on the iphone 5??

    Great Case, Only 1 Drawback

    • Written by from Morristown

    Overall this is a great case. It's thin, light, does not add much weight to the phone and looks elegant. My one issue is that it narrows the charging port a bit, so the car charger I have no longer reaches and will need to be replaced. I would check compatibility with any charger you may have before purchasing. Other than that, I definitely recommend this case, as it looks awesome on my space gray iPhone 5S.

    Ok - so i have a number of apple products that i use together:

    APPLE iPhone 5s
    APPLE Leather Case
    APPLE earphones
    APPLE Lightening connector

    ..and guess what...they DO NOT ALL WORK TOGETHER!!!!!! I now have no way of using my new phone with old products - AS THEIR OWN LIGHTENING CONNECTOR DOES NOT FIT. I now cannot listen to music on my way to work - AS THEIR OWN EARPHONES DO NOT FIT.

    Why should i have to remove the case everytime i want to connect something? Surely that defeats the purpose of having a case at all.


    DO NOT BUY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Nothing else needed! Amazing case!

    • Written by from Elizabeth

    This case is really comfortable. This case, lets the iPhone keep its slim figure and provides a cool, business, fashionable and versatile look. Its feel is something I have never felt before with any iPhone case no matter how expensive. Buy this case, if looks, comfortability and minor protection is sought for. The interior material makes you think this case is going to keep my iPhone real comfortable. This case, allows you to see the antenna band color of the iPhone 5/5s. Love this case. For real. od

    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

    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!
