    Falling to bits!

    • Written by Rob A from Frodsham

    Nice to hold although a little too grippy for some pockets and although I’ve never dropped it(!), I am confident it would offer decent protection. However, after only a few months the silicone coating on the case is properly peeling at the edges! I feel like I treat my phone carefully but pretty soon it’s going to be unusable. There are far cheaper better alternatives.

    Doesn't last

    • Written by Kristen H from Waatford

    I agree with the majority of other reviewers - not a cheap product and the silicone is peeling away having owned this for under a year - I would expect far better quality for the price and from apple!

    Breaks Down Quick

    • Written by John B from San Francisco

    Two months after buying, bottom of case started to crack and peel. Phone wasn’t dropped, just regular going in and out of my pocket. A case should really last longer than that. Service at store was terrible, apparently some cracking or some peeling is covered, and some isn’t. Could be manufacture defect might be not. Arbitrary. Useless and terrible quality. Pretty disappointed with supposed Apple quality.

    It’s true that the coating wears off quite quickly but this thing is super durable. I’ve dropped my phone 5 or 6 times on the pavement quite hard and there’s not a single mark on my phone. It’s a really great durable case. Highly recommended.

    Fantastic Case

    • Written by Robert M from Garland

    I’ve bought one for me and one for my dad and both still look and work great. I’ve been using mine for almost a year now and it still looks new. Fits great and looks great.

    Defunct after a matter of months. As others have said durability is zero. Disappointing apple sell this. Do not buy.

    More variety, please?

    • Written by Julie K from Waxhaw

    I’ve had good luck with these silicone cases for my past 3 or 4 phones. Nothing fits better or feels more secure. I’ve dropped my phones several times each & only had one cracked screen. I’m a big fan functionality-wise. Can we talk about the equally important color choices, though? I mean, they’re fine & predictable & inoffensive in every way, but so are khaki pants, amiright? Perhaps you could change them up each season? Even add a holiday choice or 2 along with it? Let’s spice it up a little, Apple. Throw a stripe in there! Be a rebel & roll out a “fall leaves” color palette in September! Why let the pumpkin spice lattes have all the fun?? For something that rarely leaves our hands, I think you could do better with your variety. After all...”Cool case! Where’d you get it?” = free advertising. Aaaaaaand, I’m def changing up my case every couple months with this much fun individuality to be had. Cha-Ching! Just sayin.

    Corners peeling off

    • Written by Reagan O from 東京

    I’ve had mine for less than 9 months and the corners have worn off exposing an unsightly hard plastic underneath.
    Hopefully this is eligible for a replacement as I heard there’s a one-year warranty on all Apple accessories.

    High Price for Low Quality

    • Written by Dallas Y from Allentown

    Having bought this Apple branded case from the Apple Store for $35, I expected a top quality product to match my iPhone 7. The case is already coming apart after just 6 months of light use. I'd imagine it'll last even shorter for anyone who is tougher on their phones. Stick with the 3rd party cases and save your money.

    Absolute Junk

    • Written by Steve T from Langley

    Top right edge chipped within 6 months. Corners are not designed properly and will not withstand back jeans pockets for long even for a person with a normal BMI, unlike my previous iphone’s all silicone cover. This is a faulty product and a waste of money.

    Bad quality - after 2 months cracks on the bottom of the case

    • Written by Marcus Vinicius A from Campo Largo

    I bought a black silicone case and just after 2 months of usage I could notice small cracks forming on the edges of the bottom of the case which is open for access to the speakers.

    Great case. Horrible build.

    • Written by Marianne N from Wayne

    I love the Apple silicone cases. They give you a great grip on your phone. Sadly, after a few months it chipped/cracked a bit. Apparently you can bring it in to exchange if this happens within a year. I don't know how true this is though. Kind of bad that this case lasted a total of a few months.

    Unhappy with durability

    • Written by James S from Melbourne

    On plus side the case as a really great fit, and fits better than the leather counterpart. Silicone feels great to the touch too. Unfortunately it’s worn down quick to now expose the hard plastic inner shell of the case (6 months of use). Feel like oils and dirt and dust sticks to it really easily as well.

    Different quality than before

    • Written by Tanya L from Ellicott City

    I got a new iPhone 8 with a silicone case. I had the exact same case for my old iPhone 6s. I must say that the quality is not the same. I love my old case, it was pretty durable(unlike some of the reviews on here), it fit great, and it was not slippery. The new case I got for my iPhone 8 is pretty much the same except it is slippery. I still have my old case and phone, and when holding the two of them in my hands, the old one stays put, the new one slips down my hand. I am so disappointed. I got a Kate Spade case at first, but returned it because I really like the feel of apple silicone case. Some people say I need to break it in, but it is not changing. I don’t think I will be buying silicone cases from apple again.

    Not very durable

    • Written by Alex C

    I bought this case from the apple store because I thought it looked nice and Google said Silicone Rubber was a very tough material used for industrial purposes. At first, many people complimented my iPhone 7 case but after about 5 weeks, bits of what looked like cheap plastic began to chip off. I thought it was because I dropped it on a rocky surface but it turned out it was its own fault. I would have thought it would have been more durable since it was an apple product, but it turns out you can't always trust them. I ended up buying the more expensive leather one and that turned out great. So do not buy this case but buy the leather case. Thanks, guys. I hope you found this helpful.

    Doesn’t last long - needs replacing within 3 months

    • Written by James R from Oxford

    The matt coating wears of the corners very quickly and then the sides. The case has now split on one of the corners after about 3 months. I wouldn’t recommend buying one. Disappointing considering it’s so expensive. Would have thought more from a product bearing the apple brand.

    Bought this case as I thought it looked nice. It lasted about a few weeks before fading and bits of the silicone chipping off. The sides of the case have split and i have not dropped the phone once. I went in to apple to explain this but they said without a receipt they can't do anything. Terrible product. DO NOT BUY at any cost. Go get a silicon case off amazon for a much cheaper price, will look as good and be much more durable. Dissapointed.

    Amazing Product -Worth It

    • Written by Aidan W from Chesapeake

    I bought this case for my iPhone 8 I received in November, and I have to say, this case is amazing. It looks great on the iPhone 8! Especially the black case on a silver iPhone 8. It it super easy to grip onto, and it is very flexible. I have had this case for 2 months now and it has not broken, nor has it ever had a problem.
