    The Case I've Been Waiting For

    • Written by from Matthews

    I have always wanted a case that was worthy of my iPhone, and, of course, it takes Apple to create the ideal case. Light, snug fit, and a wonderful feel in your hand makes this case the one that is perfect for those who don't want to sacrifice style for protection. No, it won't protect your iPhone from the unfortunate drop in the pool, but it will protect its beautiful finish from those unsightly scratches that appear from everyday use. If you're looking for a case that is worthy to sport Apple logo, look no further.

    Case worthy of Apple Logo

    • Written by from Littleton

    I was hesitant about buying this case after reading some reviews that the product felt cheap or that the color fades.

    I bought this case in store two days ago, and I LOVE IT! The design is so sleek and it does not compromise the sleekness of the iPhone 5, which is why we all bought the phone in the first place.

    Red is my favorite color and this case compliments the phone so well. Hugs every corner, cutouts for vibrate/ring switch, and even tiny cutouts for the speakers at the bottom.

    Finally, the leather feel of this is perfect. It feels luxurious in your hand.

    I recommend this product. It is worthy to carry the Apple Logo.

    Great Leather Case - Worthy of the iPhone 5S

    • Written by from Ponte Vedra Beach

    This is a great case that is quality leather. I liked it so much that I bought 3 cases. It is the first case I've owned that is quality enough for an iPhone. Love the Apple logo on the back. The price is good and for only $10 more than most other cases you get nice leather that feels great in your hand. Because of the quality it will last a lot longer than those other cheap cases. It provides great protection for your iPhone 5S or iPhone 5. Only negative is that it is a little snug and tough to remove. However if you pop off the two bottom corners and then flip it over and pull, it comes off pretty easy. Great job Apple!!!

    Read the package!!!

    • Written by from Oakland

    On the back of the box it says this case is made from natural
    Aniline leather the appearance will change over time as you use it
    I brought the red color cause I didn't care if it would tear and wear or discolor that's the part of a leather product and it's dyed leather so it would discolor over time .

    VERY happy so far...

    • Written by from Portland

    I have an iPhone 5 that is about a year old. Originally, I purchased a "bumper" from a non-Apple supplier that I found on Amazon. The bumper worked well enough, and definitely showed off my new iPhone, and protected it during falls, but it wasn't luxurious or particularly well made. I decided that I'd buy a new case when iOS 7 debuted, because it would help me feel like I got a new phone.

    Anyway, this case is gorgeous. I expect that it will "wear" well. It is always best to start with natural products, and I think that leather looks good even when it "wears". The cutouts are well designed and don't create any conflicts with my other equipment.

    Yes... the phone does fit in the case VERY snugly, but this is not a bad thing to me. It does take some extra effort to remove the phone once it has been put in, but seriously, how often will you need to do this? Besides, I'd rather have the security of knowing that the case provides a tight fit if I ever drop it.

    No regrets here... and I'm glad that Apple is offering this case. It is one of the few cases worthy of an iPhone. It feels so luxurious in my hand that $39 seems like a bargain! Lol!

    The Perfect Minimal Case

    • Written by from Wethersfield

    This case is a great case for people that are not looking to lock their iPhone in a big cocoon. The case covers the back of the phone along with the sides, and the material peeks a bit over the front, so the phone will not touch a flat surface if you place it upside down. The leather material gives it more traction on smooth surfaces. It feels comfortable in the hand and installed easily. It also does not add much bulk to the phone. The red color looks great on the space grey iPhone. If you are looking for a small case that doesn't add bulk and offers cosmetic protection, this is the case for you.

    The perfect iPhone 5 case - finally!

    • Written by from Alton

    I've tried them all - Speck, Atmosphere, Elago, bumpers, skins and "slim cases". All of them either didn't fit right, didn't protect enough or added too much bulk. This case fits perfectly, feels great in my hand and really doesn't add any bulk to the phone at all. I feel like it would protect my device from a short fall - especially around the edges. My 4 got a chip on the edge because the case I was using didn't wrap far enough around; this one does. Yes, it is $40, but I no longer feel that I will need to keep auditioning cases until I find the perfect fit, so in the long run it is a good buy for me.

    Buttons work OK, will probably get better

    • Written by from ANACORTES

    I've read some big-time reviewers (John Gruber, for example) who dismiss this case because it makes the buttons stiffer. There's some truth to this, at first anyway. But hey, it's leather, it will break in beautifully, like a pair of good shoes. Even brand new, it works well enough, but it will get better. This case just shouts Jony Ive. I agree with most reviews here: fits perfectly, feels great.

    The best case for iPhone 5/5s yet.

    • Written by from Toronto

    I bought this case for my new iPhone 5S (Space Grey). This is the best iPhone case designed or manufactured yet.

    I have owned an iPhone 5 (white) for one year and didn't buy any case to protect it. I've always wanted one, but any existing case in the market couldn't give me an optimal protection without sacrificing the iPhone's style. The birth of this case pulls me out this dilemma. The leather feels very comfortable and the RED color is a perfect match of my Space Grey iPhone. It's unknown if the new iPhone 5S will get the Red Dot Award of product design 2014 (5S may not get a second award after 5's win), but I'm sure this case offered by Apple will get the prize.

    To sum up, this is the first case I've ever seen that can work well both artistically and ergonomically.

    Fantastic case

    • Written by from Northbrook

    This is by far the best iPhone case apple has ever produced. NO this is not an otterbox that will protect your phone from 30 ft drops, but it has the phone covered flawlessly to protect it from everyday wear and tear. The material is nice and it ads almost no bulk. Highly recommended.

    Amazing quality case!

    • Written by from Macomb

    First off about the dirtiness issue, Apple tells you on the back of the box that it will change color over time. Don't act all alarmed because you don't wash your hands and get your case all dirty.

    Second: Wow I have never liked a case more then this. I got the Red for my white 5 and it looks amazing with it. The only thing that got me off guard was the power button. It isn't as tactile as some case buttons are but not a big deal for me, I actually like it better that way. I hope Apple keeps making great cases for the future iPhones!

    Not for everyone

    • Written by from San Diego

    I purchased this case knowing that it will get dirty quick based on reviews but overall I except it cause its light but still protects fairly well. Don't understand why so many are giving negative feedbacks? Yes its $40 and it will get dirty in a day so what this is just a phone and case that will be replaced in a year or two and you will really not care or look back once they get a new phone. Enjoy it people would you rather have a dirty and damage Apple case or a dirty damaged iPhone that dent have a case?

    iPhone 5s Case - (PRODUCT) Red

    • Written by from Clifford Township

    I just got this case in the mail today. When I opened the packaging, I really liked the leather feel. It felt very sturdy. My iPhone 5s fits very snug in the case, and my phone won't get scratched while being installed, because the case is leather on the outside and microfiber lined on the inside. I like how the case comes up above the screen. That gives the case a lay on the table design and optimal protection during drops on the screen. The ports for the headphone jack, microphone, lightning connector, and the speaker line up exactly with the iPhone 5s's ports. I have no problems with the headphone jack and the lightning connector because I use Apple's Earpods, wich come free with the iPhone 5s, and I use the Lightning Adapter that comes with the iPhone 5s, but people that use headphones with bigger connectors, or use Lightning connectors that do not come with your iPhone might have problems fitting your conectors in the case, or not be able to use the case while using the connectors. Otherwise, good job Apple!

    Beautiful Case

    • Written by from Shelby Township

    I received the red case as a Valentine's Day gift. It goes nicely with my gold iPhone 5s. I am not having any issues with the case getting dirty as some of the other reviewers have stated. I do understand this case will change with time. I look forward to it changing into MY case. Thanks Apple for designing a beautiful case that compliments a beautiful phone.

    Great Case

    • Written by from Tampa

    Not sure why so many people complain about the case getting dirty. Mine is still in excellent condition. Leather is meant to wear down. Just like keeping the screen free of smudges and dirt, the case can stay clean the same way. It feels great and looks great if you take care of it.

    An Excellent Case

    • Written by from Colorado Springs

    Let me start this off by saying, I hate leather. I have always disliked the feel, smell, and look of leather. Leather car seats, couches, and other items. Needless to say I was hesitant to purchase this case for my iPhone 5. But am I glad I did! This is probably the best fitting, and nicest looking, case I have covered my iPhone with. There is absolutely no space in between the phone and the case. Fits like a glove. It snaps on super easy, too. One thing I really like about the design of this case is that it protects the screen when the phone is lying face down, but in no way at all interferes with the edges of the screen. I can type, swipe, and drag apps around without my thumb or other fingers even feeling the tiny lip that comes just around the edges. As I mentioned before with the fit, the precision of this case is unmatched by anything else I have used. The hole for the camera, mute switch, headphone jack, and Lightning port are all drilled in exactly the right place. I can easily fit my nail into the mute switch's hole to adjust its position. And I have no trouble plugging in Apple's EarPods or my Skullcandy earbuds. Each individual hole for the main speaker and microphone have been drilled into the case so as not to disrupt the flow of sound. Music plays out of the speaker crystal clear and friends have no trouble hearing me on a voice call or FaceTime Audio. The camera hole is also surrounded in a black plastic ring so the color of the case will not affect the tone or color of your photos. The buttons on the phone are covered by the case. They can be found by feel thanks to the raised sections covering them. I like this because it prevents dust and debris from entering these points. I have only noticed a slight difference in the tactile clicking of each button. But it is still possible to feel the button click. The case itself is quite thin and does not add noticeable bulk or weight to the phone. I especially admire this after dealing with thick and heavy plastic cases. The case is also completely silent as opposed to cheaper plastic cases that creak and have parts that don't line up properly. Unlike other cases, this one has never lost its grip on my iPhone. The inside of this case is lined with microfiber. A very nice to touch to add beauty and help protect the finish of your iPhone 5 or 5s. Over 4 months of use this case has held up very well for being made of leather. There is no visible wear from handling the phone or sliding it in and out of pockets. There are only two downsides to this case (which I was well aware of when I bought it). And that is that it gathered colors from things like jeans pockets and grime on tables. However, it still looks like the color I bought it in (red) and has worn just like any other case I have used. The other downside to the leather material is that if you were to drop it on a rough surface like concrete the case might show more than just a scuff. But that is to be expected with any case made of material like leather. Overall, I am very pleased with this product. Apple did an excellent job crafting this accessory for my iPhone. I believe it is worth the price. It feels great and soft to hold, doesn't add bulk, and shows off the Apple logo wonderfully on the backside. In fact, this is the only case I've ever had that I didn't feel the need to take the phone out of every once in a while to enjoy it. I can enjoy my iPhone in this case.

    It's leather, its supposed to wear!

    • Written by from Stoney Creek

    I have seen that this product has received a lot of negative reviews, probably from people that have never owned a real leather product in their lives. People might think they have but it was probably faux leather or PU leather that will look pristine no matter how long you've owned the product since real leather is rather expensive these days. Leather wears, scuffs, absorbs oil from the skin if handled often and builds character over time. I have purchased this case and absolutely love it. Perfect case for the person that understands the behavior of leather.

    Amazing!

    • Written by from Brownsville

    Bought my iPhone 5s in space gray along with with this red leather case a few days ago. On the 27th to be exact. So far, the case is the best ever. It looks so good with the space gray edition. Just a little touch of a red outline to the front of the phone. The feel of the phone feels as if high quality. Just the perfect case to go along an iPhone. The case hasn't lost any of its color or has it become ugly. It's too expensive but it's worth it.

    Love the way it wears!

    • Written by from Longmont

    I ordered the red 5S case back in late September and it has been on my 5S since week two of my Space Gray iPhone's life with me. I haven't used cases on my iPhones in the past because I'm not accident-prone and wanted to enjoy the phone's good looks. But I have a red cover for my iPad and really liked the look. (Red has always been my favorite color, and it really sets off the Space Gray.)

    Anyway, over the 2.5 months I've had it, the corners of the red leather have that slightly darkened, worn look ... from the oils in my hands, I guess. That's just exactly what I was hoping for. I'm sure as the case ages, it will look even better!

    When I first put the case on, I immediately noticed that the volume and on/off buttons needed to be punched much more deliberately. After a very short time, I got used to pressing them harder. Also, the case fits very snugly and doesn't come off easily. I see this as a plus because I don't think cases are bought to be removed often. And this one definitely won't accidentally slip off the 5S!

    I will (and already have) recommended this case to iPhone using friends!
