    Very Nice Look, To Bad it Blocks the Plug of My Headset

    • Written by from Saint Peters

    I like the cases very much cool colors, simple and elegant, VERY NICE. Have only one issue with them, not long ago I purchased the MIE2i Mobile Headset for my previous phone and now that I want to use this with this new phone and case the case blocks the headset plug jack from going all they way in to the jack on the phone; so they do not work. I like the case but I am thinking about returning it.

    An iPhone Case Guru Loves This Case!

    • Written by from Spokane

    I'm ashamed to admit just exactly how many iPhone cases I've purchased and used throughout the life of my iPhone 5. From LifeProof to Otterbox and Case-Mate to Speck, I've definitely discovered pros and cons of each case. Although each case differs immensely in features and protective capability, I've never had the feeling that I'm utilizing the best case on the market nor have I been truly satisfied.

    After purchasing an iPhone 5s, I decided to purchase the Apple-branded iPhone 5s case (Black) and commit to sticking with it for the duration of the life of my iPhone 5s.

    I am extremely happy with the build quality, sleekness, and overall esthetically-pleasing feel of the iPhone 5s case. It complements the iPhone beautifully and is exactly what I've been looking for all this time. I'm finally satisfied.

    Granted, the protective capability of the case doesn't equal that of LifeProof or Otterbox, but the most extensive abuse my phone receives comprises sliding in and out of my pocket everyday (which is very easy to do with the aniline leather).

    Finally a case that is worthy of hugging my treasured iPhone; and it does it with a simplistic style that only Apple could understand.

    GOOD case -if yours got dirty CLEAN YOUR PURSE

    • Written by from LAWRENCEVILLE

    It's leather. Leather is a natural material that will absorb hand oil as well as all the nasty stuff that's in your purse or pocket. Most people appreciate the fact that leather develops a patina with age and will actually benefit from a little "road grime" . They pay hundreds extra for leather bomber jackets and the like that are "pre-worn". If you want a colored case that does not change patina over time - buy plastic. Leather is going to change with time. My wife bought one of these for her 5, and I think it ha held up very well and looks and works great - enough so that I'm going to get one for my new 5S.

    Love it!

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    I didn't get the blue only because just by the feel of the case itself you can tell that the lighter colors would get dirty so fast. I purchased the black one and I've dropped my phone a couple times and the case protected it just fine with no signs of wearing. Due to the price of the case and it being leather you would expect it to be the perfect case, but like I said the feeling of the product itself just gives up the durability. If you get any color I would suggest the black. I love that its safe and thin with this case!

    Apple case iphone 5s red

    • Written by from Bishan

    Without a doubt very nice case. I've spent nearly 500+ over just on cases and apple has made on of the greatest.
    I only have two problem with the case.
    It does not fit perfectly.. With the side like loose.
    And it gets dirty veryyyyyyy easily. Only three days and my red case is become black. I take very good care of it. I try to clean it off but no luck.

    I would recommend you guys getting a dark colored one .

    Love this case!!

    • Written by from Southern Pines

    I bought the blue leather case for my 5s and I couldn't be happier. I've had it a couple of weeks, and no, the leather is not stained. Maybe my hands are cleaner than average :-) It looks like new. I love the way this case feels in the hand, I love the way my phone looks with this case. The lightning connector fits perfectly and all the buttons work beautifully. The only thing that won't work with this case, for me, is my Square Reader. The cutout around that hole is too close. This isn't a huge deal for me but I think down the road Apple might consider making all the openings on this case a bit bigger. Overall, I find this case to be classy and perfect for my phone and me!!

    So-so

    • Written by from Austin

    Pros:

    * Feels great in the hand.
    * Leather looks great in black.
    * Speaker holes in bottom speak to attention to detail.

    Cons:

    * Really have to press the power button to get it to register.
    * Audio on/off switch is hard to reach.
    * Lightning cable not accessible with docks (I don't use one but if I did I'd be annoyed).
    * Leather does not feel "genuine". It actually sorta feels like a high end plastic.

    Not sure I would recommend it.

    The Best I've Used

    • Written by from Spring Lake

    I am a purist when it comes to apple hardware so finding a case that doesn't take away from the design is critical for me. Simply put, this case is the perfect blend of form and function. The black leather is holding up very well too and feels solid. It adds grip right from the start and only gets better as it breaks in.

    Great case

    • Written by from Bentonville

    This is a very nice case! It fits my 5S really good! It makes the phone look thin and sleek! It is very comfortable and very durable! I've had no problems at all with it. I definitely recommend this case to everyone! I hope they make more products like this in the future

    Great case, works poorly

    • Written by from MANHATTAN BEACH

    Just like most everyone else, I really like the look and feel of this case. It's already saved my spankin new 5S from a drop.

    But the big problem is that the jacks don't fit non-standard Apple straight headphones (I have a rockin' Bose pair that has a bent head) or the Apple power lightning adaptor. Major fail especially on products, like the adaptor, that Apple makes.

    Still worth it though the wear and tear from taking it off and on to use headphones or charge it is starting to show. And boy am I glad about buying a black one since so many are having issues with lighter models.

    Great Case

    • Written by from Powder Springs

    I have been using this case for two weeks and I love it. Works and fits great. Love the leather feel. Goes on and off easy for me. Can't see any wear on the black leather yet. However, I have cleaned it with a little saddle soap. It is doing a great job at keeping my 5s in great shape. Phone still looks like the day I got it. Bottom line, buy the case. I don't think you will regret it.

    Excellent High Quality Case

    • Written by from Pearland

    I have been using this case (black) for about a month. The fit and finish is classic Apple. The case is quite thin but provides excellent protection and accessibility to ports. The display is protected when placing the phone "screen down." The leather feels great in my hand and improves my grip on the phone considerably. I have never liked putting a case on my iPhone because I feel that the case detracts from the phone, but they are necessary if you want to keep your phone in good shape. This is the first case that I am proud to place on my phone. I highly recommend this case.

    What I was looking for

    • Written by from Springfield

    I don't typically write reviews but I really like this case. I was having difficulty finding a case I was happy with. I wanted slim but some level of protection. I was also hesitant about getting a leather case - keeping it clean, etc. I've come to really love this case and feel I got my $40 worth. It feels very slim providing minimal additional bulk yet provides some protection if it gets dropped. It also looks great and feels really great in your hand. I didn't consider that in the past. I think this product lives up to the Apple brand. Beautiful, sleek and practical. A pleasure to look at hold, and use.

    Slimmest Case, Highest Quality

    • Written by from Wellington

    I was looking for the most minimalist case I could find and this is definitely it. It is almost (almost) like not even having a case on your phone.

    The other reviewers are all right that the leather feels excellent and the fit is as snug and as good as it gets. It is difficult to take the case on and off, but this is the kind of case you leave on all the time.

    This case is for you if you want:
    - The most minimalist case you can get
    - A bumper-like lip around the front so when you set it screen-side down the screen does not touch the table surface
    - A quality feel
    - Protection from scratches or scuffs

    This case is NOT for you if you want:
    - A case you can easily remove all the time
    - A case that offers reasonable drop protection (remember that no case actually offers drop protection, but some out there claim to be designed for a little impact)

    I bought it in black because I was worried the lighter colors would show dirt over time (like all leather does).

    Best of the Apple leather cases.

    • Written by from Belleair

    I have ordered the black, brown, blue and yellow leather iPhone cases from Apple. Without a doubt, black is the best color due to its ability to hide wear and soiling. I have had the black case on my iPhone 5s for a little over two weeks, and it still looks like new (both the phone and the case). The colored cases look horrible after only a few days of handling. I think someone online said they felt like they needed a case for their red leather case, and I agree. Apple didn't think through the colors very well (yellow isn't yellow, and the blue is muddy compared to online photos). The aniline leather does wear, but the colored cases look worn and dirty after only a couple of days – defeating the purpose of a colored case.

    Best iPhone Case

    • Written by from Portland

    When I got my iPhone 5, I bought a very slick looking case with a transparent backing that sadly, didn't stay transparent for long and also caused tiny specks of dirt to be ground into the soft aluminum case of the phone, creating giant gouges. When I saw these online I decided to pick this up and the lady at the Apple Store let me check it out before i bought it. I could not be happier. It holds the phone snugly with a great texture and most importantly, a soft inner lining to prevent dirt from chipping the aluminum finish.

    Perfect Case!!!

    • Written by from Fullerton

    Just buy it. You won't regret it. Workmanship, looks, fit and finish all Apple! It fits great and feels terrific. Could not have designed a better compliment to the 5s. I love this case! PS-not sure what some of the other reviewers were talking about -- the 30-pin/Lightening adapter is fully compatible.
