    +ve(Snug, Light) -ve(difficult power button, gets dirty quickly)

    • Written by from San Jose

    I got the PRODUCT (RED). Looks cool, feels soft, relatively thinner than most of the sturdy leather case in the market, and fits perfect. Some say its very hard to remove, IMO thats how a case should be, if you want protection! Accessing the volume buttons are fine, but I need to press harder to use the power button. Maybe its a defect or maybe thats how it is (since the power button is slender). And I have a feeling that the color cases might get dirty quickly (like your white leather shoes). Its been 7 hrs and already I'm seeing dark areas.

    Not up to Apple standards!

    • Written by from Perrysburgi

    I am very disappointed in this case. Although it is pretty and sleek when it comes out of the package, the material is terrible and looked horrible within a few days. My sister purchased the same case and experienced the same problem as I did. The edges become incredibly worn and it constantly looks dirty. Not worth the money.

    Dirty, grimy, oily, cannot clean

    • Written by from RANCHO CORDOVA

    This case looks nice & fits great, but the leather soaks up oils from your skin, dirty and grim and dies in your jeans. After one week it feels like a dirty shirt collar. Too bad they don't also sell a product to get the "ring" out of your dirty Apple case! After - week i was grossed out to touch it. Tried leather clean, no avil.

    Worns quickly

    • Written by from The Woodlands

    Not even a month since I brought this case. It has already worn out on the edges and looks awful. Very hard to remove as well. Mute/Unmute button above the volume buttons is not easily accessible unless you tilt the phone or have bigger nails. Little bit more pressing required if you want to switch off the phone. Edges don't allow you to use the phone in a flexible manner (specially if you have any games like Real Race etc)

    I wish I can give Zero stars to this product.

    Note: Not sure about the Torn out issue for other colors

    Bose headphones don't fit with cover on!

    • Written by from SAN RAMON

    Liked this case until I tried to plug in headphones. Hole in case for headphone isn't large enough to permit full connection of headphones to headphone jack!
    Guess if I never plan to use headphones the case is nice. Not happy :(

    Very pleased with the Apple case

    • Written by from Senoia

    I have purchased so many iPhone cases over the years I have lost count. When I saw the new leather cases from Apple I thought they would be a nice change over the slim plastic cases I had been using for my iPhone 5.

    I have not always loved Apples offerings. I was not a fan of the Bumper Case and the first Smart Cover for my iPad scratched the iPad itself on the side but I figured this would be worth a shot and I'm really glad I did.

    The case fits perfectly, looks very well made, and the leather feels great. I like the simplicity of he logo on the back and no other markings. I think the brown leather looks great with the white iPhone and am looking forward to how it weathers and patinas with use.

    Well done Apple, $39 is still a lot for a case but this one finally feels worth it compared to so many of the others I have tried.

    Terrible quality

    • Written by from Manchester

    I got the brown case to go with 5S gold for its feel and look only. The case changed its color particularly on edges and turned to a dark gray color after few months. Now it is awful. Unfortunately, Apple Store rep said there is no warranty for these items. I am considering removing it. The phone itself looks elegant and doesn't really need a case for protection. I expected better quality from Apple.

    These cases are useless, do not buy

    • Written by from Carlingford

    These cases mark so easily, i had a brand new red one that was sparkling when i first bought it, after about a week of use it began to mark and now the edges are black and it is barely recognisable of its old sparkling self. Sure it fits snug, but the first time i dropped the phone it shattered the screen and it landed on the edge!! These may look pretty but really they are useless, over priced pieces of garbage that i would not recommend to anyone

    Iphone 5s - Beige Cover

    • Written by from Sydney

    Just bought my iphone 5s and the beige cover and the first day I have used it, the leather is already showing signs of wear and stains. I am very disappointed with the quality of this product, especially considering that I have chosen this Apple cover over the wide variety of covers on offer.

    Worst in Class

    • Written by from Toronto

    This case feels great. And looks amazing on Day 1. But after 2 weeks its gets stained up and dirty. Does not weather well at all and ends up looks really bad. But...Day 1 was great.

    Dont be fooled

    • Written by from Pahrump

    I thought this was the perfect compliment to my ipad mini brown leather case but found out in 2 weeks the poor quality and dye issues with this case. After fading color and edges peeling I went back to the apple store at town square in las vegas where I purchased it and was told by 2 employees that is the way it is supposed to age. Very disappointing from an apple product that should be better quality

    Terrible Case!

    I bought the (RED), it really looks nice, but after 1 week the leather is so dirty. Save your money and get another case.

    Beware of the poor quality leather!

    • Written by from Palo Alto

    Everything people are saying about this case is true. Yes, the fit and feel are great. But the leather is poor quality, with a finish which shockingly bad quality, and which absorbs oil and stains easily. In areas where the leather is formed (edges, buttons, etc) it stains into a hideous color, no matter how clean you keep it. Mine was a mess after just a week.

    If you are going to buy this, buy the black one. At least read the reviews first. This is probably the worst apple product I have ever purchased. Consider yourself warned.

    Disappointed

    I got the lighter beige color and after a week the "leather" gets so dirty and worn. Can't clean it. Easily dents when dropped. Waste of money- after a month, I'm getting a new cover.

    Stylish, minimalistic, compact, perfectly fitted, pretty protective.

    • Written by from NAPERVILLE

    This case is great; the best leather case I have owned. It fits my iPhone 5 absolutely perfectly, with nice hard, non bending edges (NOT like the Bumper Case which flexed and stretched), a great texture to the leather, good "grippyness", good accessibility to ports, and buttons that are pretty easy to push. Plus it is the only case that legally wears the Apple log which some might enjoy.

    The only couple of small issues are: the off/on button on the top can be a bit more difficult to push then without the case (not terrible though, easy to get used to), and the headphone jack is recesses and pretty deep, so some headphones might fit (although ever since the first iPhone most headphone makers I think are making their plugs fit recessed headphone in's). Don't worry about the case being hard to take off; it sits so tightly on your phone that you shouldn't need to clean behind the case at all.

    Total disappointment

    • Written by from Toledo

    I've had my case for almost 7 months now and by the 5th month the "worn leather" effect looks disgusting. It downright looks dirty and cheap. It's hard to believe it's "worthy" of an Apple Logo. As it has provided me with protection, it's started to peel in the corners revealing the plastic material underneath. I'll never waste my money on leather Apple branded case again.

    Looks really bad after only a week

    • Written by from Doral

    I purchased this case exactly 1 month ago. I originally like the case. However, after a week or so, the case started to look very worn. The sides started to rub off, and the color has faded. This is a hard to remove case and doesn’t fit other cables than the original lightning cable from Apple.

    Buy the balck cover, this one stains VERY EASILY

    • Written by from Georgetown

    Loved the idea of a leather casing. Bought the brown leather cover to keep the Apple aesthetics and remain loyal to the brand. Unfortunately after just two or three days the brown case would stain very easily, I repeat, very easily. I’m disappointed cause I spent 50 dollars on something that now I don’t like, but makes my iPhone looks horrible. Wish I can trade it of for a black cover at least.
