    Lasted only for 6 months

    • Written by Sujie W from Oakland Gardens

    I don't think that I'm a heavy iphone user and I usually take care of what I have, but this leather case only lasted for 6 months and it started to peal and come off around edges. Unbelievable.

    Wears out quickly

    • Written by Eoin W from London

    The five star reviews for this product were probably written shortly after receiving the case. I have had mine two months, and it has become very worn and grubby. I use my work iPhone as much if not more - the cheap leather case I got for that is six months old and in vastly superior condition.

    Avoid this - it looks good at first but it is very cheaply put together with a thin finish. A premium accessory ought to be built to last. Maybe the darker dyes fair better.

    Does not protect your phone

    • Written by Ryan S from Fleming Island

    I loved the look and feel of this case. Minimal, slim, felt good in the hand. However, it failed to provide any protection to my phone. I only dropped my phone twice and both times my phone broke while using this case. The first time I dropped my phone it was no longer functional and I had to have it replaced. The second time the glass shattered (did not have a glass screen protector). I would not recommend this case. It fails to serve the primary function of a phone case, to protect your phone.

    Avoid at all costs

    • Written by Steve R from Westbury

    1. Colour does not develop a rich patena, it looks filthy.
    2. After about 18 months it will fall apart with only very light use.
    3.Apple considers this to be normal and expected. At this price, who are you kidding Apple?

    Not so premium

    • Written by Nicholas W from Sutton in craven

    I completely agree with the other 1 star review. Within the month it has become very dirty. It is as though it absorbs grime. I haven’t found durability a big issue considering how slim the case and how thin the leather is. Apple really should have tested this before they started selling it, especially for the price they want which is absolute nonsense.

    Nice at first, color wears off VERY quickly

    • Written by Garrett S from St Louis

    I purchased this case for my 6s plus on launch day. It looked great and smelled like rich leather and I was happy with my purchase. Now, only a week later, the color is wearing off the leather and the corners and buttons are turning black. I expect leather to age and tone over time, but the color seems to be rubbing off. I'm not impressed.

    Leather + light color = no go

    • Written by BRENDAN K from WESTMINSTER

    If anyone tried the red leather Apple case with iPhone 5/5s, you know how that fared. Well, after a week with the saddle leather case on the 6s, the corners are almost completely black. Note to self: Buy no more lighter toned leather cases.

    Looks beautiful when it's new. Not so much a week later.

    • Written by Mitchell H from Grove City

    I love things with that saddle leather look (messenger bags, binder covers, phone cases), so I recently purchased this. Perfect out of the case. But in a few short days it became dingy and started taking on color from my pants and jeans. If my jeans were new with fresh dye, I might understand. These were a year or two old. Case looked horrible and is no longer being used. I had previously purchased black leather, and of course, it held up very well.

    These Cases do not properly fit the iPhone 6s.

    • Written by Brody J from LETHBRIDGE

    I have purchased 3 of the new leather cases for the iPhone 6s. And each is the same - an improper fit. 2 in saddle brown, and one in black, all 3 have been returned. I owned an apple leather case for my iPhone 6 which i put on my 6s and it was ironically a better fit than these new cases. Come on apple, to charge 60 dollars for a case that is not built properly. Every other case manufacturer has created a case specifically for the 6s. You are squeezing your 6s into a case that is clearly designed for a 6. Make 2 cases please. All 3 cases have the same problem, in that the bottom corners do not wrap snug on the phone. Think i am wrong? flip your case upside down and look at the back from the top looking down to the bottom, and you will see the corners flaring out. Very disappointed with apple on this one, and i would recommend waiting for them to solve this problem.

    Case is too slippery and interferes with force touch

    • Written by Jerry S from Middletown

    I found using the phone naked was slightly too slippery for my liking. I bought this case to help give me a better grip on the phone. However, the case is also very slippery and was barely any better than not having one.

    In addition, the case's lip makes it almost impossible to utilize force touch for multi-tasking with your right hand (force touching the left side of the phone). The lip comes up too high over the front of the phone, causing the thumb to contact the screen too far away from the screen's edge to activate the force touch feature.

    The case does look fairly aesthetically pleasing, however. And certainly provides a level of protection against minor damage and scuffs.

    Wears QUICKLY (1 month); Poor fit on some cases; Stretch marks and pits

    • Written by Christopher W from Cerritos


    1. These cases wear out QUICKLY. within 1 month, the sides of the case (the sides with the buttons) were nearly completely BLACK. Apple calls this "patina," but this is not a normal leather patina. Maybe after 1 week of use, I would call it "patina." After 1 month of use, the leather was just worn through. The actual layer of leather on this case is very thin. If this is aniline dyed (which means the dye is infused into the leather), that means the leather is wearing out. The case just started to feel "rotten" in the hand. The back of the case did have a nice patina to it, which I enjoyed. But the black sides I could not deal with.

    2. As another reviewer has mentioned, some cases fit poorly. They are too tight, and the bottom corners flare out. Out of 3 cases, I only had one that fit correctly. Be very careful when putting your cases on your phone. you might end up scratching the phone finish. if you look on the inside of the case, the corners are not lined with that microfiber/felt lining.

    3. Some cases have a sharp bottom edge, while others have this tapered elliptical cut. The sharp edge makes it uncomfortable to hold the case if you are the type that rests the bottom of the phone on your pinky finger when using it.

    4. INSPECT your case before you leave the store. Cases are coming out of the box with stretch marks, pits and scratches in the leather, and other defects.


    A. If you happen to get one that fits without defects, I think (before it wears out) that this is one of the best cases out there for the phone. The fit and finish are excellent (if you get a good one). The leather feel is excellent and rich, and the grip is great imo. I have never had a problem with the phone slipping out of my hand. I can even use it one-handed without any problems.

    B. The saddle brown color is beautiful for the limited time that it is broken in just right: when it has a minor patina so that you have a tapestry of shades of brown, and just before the sides turn black. Unfortunately, this is short-lived.

    Tips: The buttons come out of the box very rigid, where you cannot register clicks well with the sleep/wake and volume buttons. You can break them in by using your finger to press in the buttons (while the case is off) repeatedly. Think about it like breaking in a baseball glove. After 10 minutes or so, you should get a nice button feel (sometimes feels like no case is there at all).

    For some cases with the tight fit, you will never get a good button click because the case is simply too tight and does not fit properly.

    In sum, perfect case without the defects (fit, wear, stretch marks/pits, etc.). I wish Apple would have kept the bottom lip for extra protection.

    Looks great, stains easy.

    • Written by Jalani B from Riverdale

    Case looks and feels great! I've had it for 48 hours and the only issue I have is that it stains extremely easily. Was hoping it would hold up well especially for it being so expensive. I would probably recommend getting the black leather case instead.

    Excellent quality and beautiful color

    • Written by Timothy F from Arlington

    I've had the Saddle Brown for my Silver 6s Plus for about 3 weeks and I'm loving it more and more. The leather is developing a "patina" look which makes the case look even better. The quality of the product is excellent and I'm thoroughly pleased I got this color vs the midnight blue.

    Richly Elegant

    • Written by Tiffany S from Houston

    This case is synonymous with the what Apple represents. Class! The brown is so rich. This case just makes any iPhone stand apart. I normally purchase designer cases because I've found the Apple cases to be somewhat plain. However this one is a keeper! It is a perfect accessory to any designer handbag. The color is very rich and wears well, unlike the lighter color cases. It's also very functional in that my phone is very well protected. I simply love it! Must Have!

    Very stylish

    • Written by James T from Johnson City

    Beautiful case! Fits like a glove. Minimal lip around bezel for face down protection on flat surfaces. Feels great in the hand. Less slippery than the silicone cases. Casual enough for everyday use, yet stylish enough for dinner parties and business meetings.

    A very, very nice case

    • Written by Thomas W from Brighton

    Have been through a few cases for my 6 plus but saw this and had to try it. It's my favourite case yet. It's an absolutely perfect fit and is made from very smooth leather which feels high quality to the hand. All of the controls work perfectly through the case. When holding it in landscape the case is very comfortable to your palm and fingers, unlike most of my other cases which just rub a little somewhere.

    I love saddle brown leather because of the way it changes over time. It hasn't happened yet but I'm fully expecting it to age and develop its own unique patina. I wouldn't expect that this is the case for you if you want a pristine new appearance forever (choose black or maybe a darker silicone case if you do).

    Worth the price

    • Written by Jonathan C from Atlanta

    I bought the Apple silicone case for my 6sPlus and didn't love it. So I returned it and got the Apple leather case in saddle brown. It feels amazing. It starts off slightly more slippery than the silicone, but within a week it had more grip, felt soft, and still slid in & out of my pocket easily. I had the leather case with my iPhone 6 and found the side buttons hard to press with it. This model's case fixed that issue. I can't say enough good things about this case.
