    Bubbles on back

    • Written by David W from Ashburn

    Just received our clear cases for our XRs this evening. The fit is just as I expected from Apple. Absolutely perfect; however, my black phone now has contact bubbles on the back where the glass back touches the plastic case. Don’t see these on my wife’s blue phone. Really detracts from what the case is supposed to do in showing off the phone. A real let down.

    Leaves terrible 'contact patches' completely spoiling the look of the phone

    • Written by Joe F from London

    With SUCH a limited range of classic iPhone cases for the iPhone XR (this is the only 'Apple' one), my wife and I both decided to buy this newly released clear case for our new iPhone XRs. The case itself looks robust and protective, and to that end it is quite stiff and very hard to get on, even harder to get off.... like REALLY REALLY hard! We accepted this, but the nail in the coffin is the horrible, horrible 'contact patch' clearly visible where the case makes contact with a central area of the back of the iPhone. On our white iPhones this leaves a horrible dark grey patch in appearance like a bad bruise. This is not moisture or dirt but simply the contact of the TPU case material on the glass-backed iPhone. We even took them off and refitted being super careful not to touch any part of the back of the iPhone or case, but to no avail. For SUCH an expensive (£45!) case we would have expected Apple to have tested this out and reached their own conclusions that this is clearly unsuitable to sell as a product, unless you really don't care how your iPhone looks. We are very frustrated Apple only sell this case and a couple of Otterbox cases for the XR, whereas the XS has hundred of official Apple cases in various colours and finishes. Come on Apple, give XR customers some options also! As it stands we do NOT recommend this case at all for any iPhone XRs. AVOID!

    Everything you would have hoped it would be!!!

    • Written by Steven R from Richfield

    Just received my clear iPhone XR case, and I must say it is exactly what I hoped it would be. Very slim & sleek fit, just like the silicon cases are. Buttons feel good but I’m sure will break in more over time! Feels maybe a bit less slippery compared to the phone (itself) but overall very happy with this purchase.

    Clearly The Best Case To Buy

    • Written by Jose P from Freeport

    I purchased this case for my new iPhone XR and it just awesome. It is a hard shell case which so much better than the soft silicone ones available from other companies. It covers all of the edges just like the XS and XS Max silicone and leather cases.

    A very expensive and poorly designed case! Don’t but it!

    • Written by Mark B from Ryton on Dunsmore

    This case has one of the worst designed problems I’ve ever seen, it’s fits ok but the major issues with this phone case is it so slippy when on the phone and makes it very hard to hold the phone. I definitely would not recommend this case to use with your XR. There are better ones around and at better price too.

    Like holding a wet bar of soap

    • Written by Jason L from NORTH BERWICK

    The case fits perfectly but that's its only positive quality. It's too slippery in hand, causing constant anxiety it might fall when removing from a pocket or bag, and that's with the very deliberate extra gripping (compared to silicone) it demands. The volume buttons are also much too stiff. Aesthetics have definitely taken priority of ergonomics here. Apple, please launch a silicone case for the XR!

    Beautiful but Flawed

    • Written by Brendan N from Warrenton

    I really liked the case and was looking forward to having an Apple made case for the XR. The whole point of having a clear case with a XR is to see the color of your phone. However the air bubbles are impossible to get rid of on the case and as a result really ruins the appearance of the case on the phone.

    Bubbles on back of phone

    • Written by Joshua M from Roseville

    When I got the case there was almost immediately bubbles on the back of my phone. I tried getting rid of them and they kept coming back. I even re-placed my case with another of the same kind of case and it still had bubbles. Very disappointed.

    Zero stars, here’s why.

    • Written by Lisa H from Indiana

    I would have never bought the XR had I known it would prevent me from having an apple silicone case. The silicone case made all the difference in terms of usage and not dropping the phone. This clear case sounds loud every time I lay it down and I’ve dropped my phone half a dozen times. I NEVER dropped my phone when I had the option of a silicone case. Please don’t buy the XR because you’re forced to buy this awful case that is not typical apple quality. You cannot properly use the side buttons, you can see a rainbow on the case when even third party cases were able to prevent this design flaw. I never knew that upgrading my phone would be a downgrade in terms of one of the most important aspects of the phone: the case. What made apple think every consumer of this phone wants the same case? All other models have options and aren’t discriminated upon. This is wrong on so many levels and needs fixed immediately.

    Dust and dirt gets under the cover and can be seen through the clear case. Not sure why Apple couldn't have just offered the normal silicon and leather cases for the XR as well as this clear option.

    Contact Bubble On Back

    • Written by Stephen M from Wrightwood

    I have the black XR and noticed a big contact bubble on the back under the Apple logo. I've taken the case off and put it back on numerous times in an effort to get rid of it, but the contact bubble remains. Kinda detracts from the look of the phone in the case. Makes the case almost unusable in my opinion.

    Had the case on for only a few hours. Case is has several deep scratches from normal use such as setting the phone on my desk or having it in my pocket. No drops or hard falls. Disappointed for an apple case. Please make a silicone case for the XR

    Literally any other case would be better

    • Written by Christopher K from Lindenhurst

    This case is another swing and a miss from apple. The XS/XS Max get Leather cases and Rubberized cases, this phone gets a well designed plastic case that is way too easy to drop. Its extremely slippery and after a few weeks of use, doesn't get any better, just worse. The debris under the case is very visible and disgusting. worst of all, this it the ONLY apple manufactured case. Pretty poor showing from apple.

    nothing special

    • Written by Kouyen'dou N from Omaha

    this case is like every other clear case you can find on amazon for $10 and it cracked when i tried to take it off because it is so hard to take off, and it doesn't help that this case is $40. APPLE!!! PLEASE MAKE LEATHER AND SILICONE CASES FOR THE XR THAT IS ALL ANYBODY WANTS!!!

    Nice but has a major flaw

    • Written by Andrew G from NAPLES

    Great looking case in theory. However when the case goes on I have about a quarter sized unsightly air bubble that is on the back. This totally ruins the clean aesthetic I believe apple (and myself) were going for. The case still will provide great protection even with the air bubble but it just bothers me every time I see the unsightly air bubble ruining the clean aesthetic of my new iPhone.

    A little slippery

    • Written by Garret D from Sproul

    The case looks amazing and fits the phone very well but my only complaint is that the case is slippery and I fear the phone will slip from my hand

    Cheap quality

    • Written by Vilma S from San Diego

    The worse case ever! I’ve had this case for less than a week and it’s already cracked!!! Very cheap quality, stiff and slippery to the touch. I have always purchased the silicone Apple logo case for my iPhones but it’s not available for iPhone XR. Instead I ended up with this piece of expensive trash. I want my money back

    Awful buttons, bubbles, overpriced for quality

    • Written by Jeff H from Woodland Park

    Awful quality: the buttons are the worst things I've ever touched. I have to death grip my phone to click them. My wife's Sonix is great and the buttons are wonderful. Also, there's a weird bubble on the back.
