    iPhone 5/s Leather Case.

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    I think everyone forgets that leather wears to have a certain "used" or "broken in" look similar to how baseball gloves get after years of use. Isn't that what makes leather so nice? I am completely satisfied with the case. Suede inside helps prevent fine scratching to the phone. Great fit and I love the look the leather has after it has been handled and picks up the oils and sweat from your hands. That is the point of leather...as it ages with wear it looks better...If you want a case that will always look pristine, buy a plastic type of case...Common sense!

    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.

    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.

    Great

    • Written by from Houston

    I love this case. Its simple and it feels great in my hand. I use it sparingly however. Special occasions. If you care about blemishes this is not the case for you. I have at least 20 different cases for my 5S so Im able to maintain this case's beauty. Considering the price I would avoid contact with colors that might bleed into the material. Well worth the price in my opinion. Good 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 .

    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!

    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!

    A must have for the new iPhone 5s!

    • Written by from Pleasant Grove

    I'm not usually one to buy cases for my iPhones, I prefer the natural feel of the phone itself. Plus most cases usually bulk up the phone, which I hate. I decided to give the new leather case a try and I'm so glad I did! The case fits perfectly around the iPhone without making it feel thick. The grip of the leather feels extremely comfortable and it makes the iPhone look sophisticated and elegant! Apple designed it perfectly because it still shows off the color of iPhone you picked around the outer edge. This is one case that is well worth the money!…I'd even be willing to pay a little more!

    Beautiful case

    • Written by from Lansing

    I have been using the red version of this case on my iphone 5s for over a week now and it still looks as beautiful as the day I opened the box. I love it. Fits great, feels good in the hand and looks awesome. I was hesitant after reading some of the reviews about how the product looked after only a few days but there isn't a spot or a scratch on mine. I put it in my pocket and in my purse. All the buttons are lines up perfectly and are easy to press. I'm impressed. So don't let some of the negative reviews put you off because it has held up wonderfully so far for me.

    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?

    A beautiful case that does its job!

    • Written by from Hastings

    It's job is to be a convenient, everyday case to protect your phone from drops, scuffs, and scratches. It does just that. If you're looking for a case to do anything more, no; this case is not for you. But if you take care of your phone, it should do it justice.

    The case itself is very nice in the hand and feels great. The box specifically says that the case will change colors, and I thought that was kind of cool. Makes the case a little more personal.

    Today, I accidentaly dropped my iPhone 5s onto a sidewalk, where it landed face down... After nearly having my heart drop to my stomach, I picked it up hoping the screen wasn't cracked. The lip on the case prevented the screen from even touching the ground, thank goodness! The leather was a bit damaged where the phone hit the ground, but that's what cases are for... to protect your phone. I'm very pleased with this case as it's done its job of protecting my phone while maintaining the sleek look that Apple provides.

    If you want sexy buy this case

    • Written by from Hamilton

    This case is so simple. It's leather and it has an "apple" experience to it. It fits the phone snugly and looks great. It ages like leather and stains like leather. Overall it feels great and protects my phone from simple every day wear. I would not expect this to protect it from any fall. That's what apple care does. But... it I put my phone down on a concrete surface the leather gets a little more character and my phone still looks like new.
