    Awful case... avoid at all cost : (

    • Written by Jolyon H from Poole

    I needed to buy a case when I first purchased the phone so decided to buy the only official Apple case that the store had...big mistake! It definitely protects the phone well , so I can't criticise it for that...but in all other aspects its a total fail...it makes the phone feel slippery in you hand and starts to feel really greasy very quickly, so you'll probably drop the phone more than you'd expect to...it also develops really annoying bubbles (like a badly applied screen protector) which just makes it look cheap...a very badly designed official product...why can't they release an official leather case for this phone ?

    BTW , I would've given this product zero stars , but I wasn't able to....

    Worth every penny!

    • Written by Chenoa F from West Yarmouth

    By far my favorite case! Such a slim case and crystal clear design. My case did not develop any contact bubbles as I have seen some reviews mention. Just make sure your phone is wiped down and free of any dust or oils from your fingers and you should be fine! The case hasn’t developed the faded yellowish tint that usually occurs with clear cases. The only downside of the case is how finger prints show constantly and don’t wipe away too easily. Despite the finger prints, this case definitely trumps all other clear cases that I have owned.

    Very expensive case which winds up looking cheap

    • Written by Clifford E from Shipley

    This case fits the phone well, but it’s design is actually bad for two major reasons. 1) The material it’s made out of is soft, so it picks up scratches like crazy. I had got my phone from new and by the end of the day it was covered in a half dozen scratches. A few weeks later and I might as well have rubbed it on concrete. 2) The clear design shows off all the dust that seems to get trapped between the cover and the phone. So your nice new phone looks like it’s scratched and dusty, rather than showing off the phone at all.

    This case fits like a dream!

    • Written by Jenny F from Centerville

    This is by far the best clear case I've ever had (and I've tried quite a few from several 3rd party sellers for my previous iPhone.) The "official" Apple case fits like a glove and honestly it feels like it's an extension of the device itself...the case is so clear that you can barely tell that there's a case on the phone. This case feels great in hand and does not add any bulk to the phone. The case is slick but not too slippery. I have not dropped my phone yet so I cannot attest to the case's drop protection. So far the case appears to be very scratch resistant (which was not the case with other 3rd party clear cases that I tried with my iPhone 7 that obtained micro-abrasions within hours of installation.) The only reason I am not giving the case 5 stars is because it does show fingerprints quite easily, but they are easily removed. The case is also a very tight fit and can be tricky to remove, so proceed with caution.

    Don't buy!

    • Written by Neil P from Andover

    This is not a good product. It is so smooth that it slides off any surface that has any sort of slope to it and even out of your hands. No grip to it at all. Don't buy is my advice.

    Bubbles on back

    • Written by Mike Y from Cartersville

    Within 1 hour of putting this case on my Black XR, I saw the "bubble". It is not really a bubble, but it looks like that. The case sticks to the phone back in certain spots, making dark splotchy areas. Maybe could have been avoided by giving the interior of the case a slight texture? This case is also very rigid and hard to take on and off.

    Great case, just wish it was a little less slick

    • Written by Dustin B from San Francisco

    The Good: It’s an Apple case, it fits well, it shows off the iPhone, it provides a lot of protection.
    The Bad: It’s more slippery than the bare phone itself, it definitely adds some bulk to the iPhone.

    Yes, I had a bubble the first couple of times I put the case on my phone. After a few days, the bubble had worked itself out. No more bubbles. I’m hoping that the extra money spent on this case went toward high quality materials so that it doesn’t end up yellowing in 6 months. Honestly, I’d rather go without the case, but the glass back of this iPhone worries me.

    Solid, protective, good fit, but annoying splodges!

    • Written by Jon W from London

    Decent case in all ways, other than the unsightly splodges on the back. The issue is that the transparent nature of the case exposes any areas of contact between the back of the case and the back of the phone. These contact points look liked trapped air bubbles. You can temporarily get ride of them by releasing one corner of the case, but they always come back. Considering that you’re paying £45 for a piece of clear plastic with the sole purpose of enjoying the colour of your phone, this isn’t good enough.

    Contact bubbles show

    • Written by JOHN P C from Martinez

    I bought this case when I picked up my phone at the Apple Store. I wanted a clear case to show of the beautiful red color of my new iPhone. I thought this case coming from Apple would be best in both fit and quality so did not mind paying the $39.00 for this case. Now I feel like an idiot for ignoring the negative reviews and wasting $39 bucks. There are contact bubbles that show on back of case and ruin the look for me. I am now shopping Amazon for a much cheaper and better reviewed case. I would not recommend this case to anyone and do not understand why Apple would release a product with this flaw.

    Completely dislike this case ---> 0 stars.

    • Written by Matthew N from Sydney

    Purchased this genuine case with an XR. After 2 weeks removed it because it was sooo hard to access the buttons and ringer switch. Now this case sits in bottom drawer. Not the quality I expect from Apple.

    Later, purchased a 3rd party case for $9 which is far better.

    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!!!

    Better than otterbox

    • Written by Kate B from Locust valley

    I like the fact I can see the whole phone. It is also not rubber. It fits in my hand properly. There was no bibles. It can get dirt in it, but I think that it is no big deal if you have to take it off once or twice.

    Terrible, slippery case.

    • Written by Terry’s I from Costa Mesa

    My old Apple case on the iPhone 8 was the best. Just picked up my new XR and only option was the clear, super slippery case. You can't prop it up to read, it just slides down. I'm sure I'm going to end up dropping it. I told them at the store it was too slippery and demonstrated at the "set up" table that it couldn't be propped up. In the end I left very unhappy with the case. So many reviews here say exactly the same thing. SLIPPERY!

    Great Case

    • Written by Josh D from Indianapolis

    This is literally thick enough that it protects your phone, but clear enough you see the color all the way around your phone and doesn't "fog" it up. The finger prints really don't show too much and come off super easily.

    I love this case. It showcases my pretty iPhone X much nicer than any other case I’ve found. I am pleased with it.

    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.

    Love this case

    • Written by Aaron G from New Brunswick

    Great solid case. Fits just like any other apple case but shows off the beauty of the XR which was always a flaw of the other cases. Buttons feel great and no bubbling effect like others have mentioned. Id reccomend putting it on in store before u buy to try it out. So glad apple is getting into the clear case market! Love this case

    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!

    Contact marks are very disappointing

    • Written by Hugh T

    I exchanged the case because of patchy contact marks it left at the centre of the back of my red xr to no avail. The whole purpose of the case is to show off the colour of the phone but I am unable to recommend this case to our customers for this reason. It is a great shame, given the limited range of XR cases currently available.
