    Beautiful color and patina

    • Written by Steven R from Denver

    Not sure why people are commenting negative things about this case. It’s great if you know how take care of your phone and not drop it. If you drop it then yes there will be some noticeable damage but even that wears down after time. This is a great case.

    My Fav Case

    • Written by Stephen P from DUNWOODY

    I'm on my 3rd one of these - first was for the iPhone X and there's just enough fit difference that it doesn't work well around the XS camera. My 2nd was for my XS and I wore it out from dropping it on concrete. That said, it does protect the phone against minor drops apparently!

    Some people complain about the color changing, but the best thing about this case is how it ages and takes on a unique patina becoming darker around the edges. They look great new and tan, but you have to let that go. The oils from your hands will soak in and color it. Jeans pockets my impart some indigo tones. If that's going to bother you, don't get it - get something dark like navy or black or plastic that won't show wear as much.

    Stains everything it touches after 6 months.

    • Written by Brian J from brooklyn

    The leather disintegrates and starts staining your fingers when you hold it after only 6 months. Rubs off on everything it comes in contact with. Worst case I've ever bought.

    Dropped it in a fire pit!

    • Written by Hunter C from Warren

    I accidentally dropped my phone in a fire pit with this case! It was in the fire pit for 10s. I thought I lost the phone after burning my hand trying to retrieve it. Thankfully the phone emerged looking unscathed! My hand was not as lucky as my phone. I had this case and a glass screen protector, the phone fell in fire case side down. I really can’t believe how great this case is.

    Simple and genuine

    • Written by Luis V from San Antonio

    I’ve had this case for a few months and looks way better than when new. The longer you have it the more natural of a color it holds. My case has gotten darker and taken a few nicks and scratches here and there but that’s what gives it character. It’s leather after all. Peach upgrade I always am so excited to get the cases Apple has lined up. All the colors are great and really appealing. My top colors are the classic saddle brown, midnight blue, taupe. All the colors are extremely nice and to each color choosing to their own but it’s by far one of the nicest simple cases out can get out in the market. People put too much criticism when they can’t keep nice things nice looking. It’s just not meant for some. Can’t wait to see what colors come next and what the future for Apple holds.

    Gets discoloured really quickly

    • Written by Stephen S from Luton

    The case is a snug fit and the leather is comfy. From my experience every case I've used including this one improves grip and the leather feels nice in the hand.

    However, it discolours really quickly from a mint light brown to a really dark brown in less than 2 months; Willing to bet the other colours except black also do this. I understand that real leather will get effected by wear and tear, but was surprised how quickly it discoloured compared to other leather products I have.

    For this reason I recommend people should get a black leather case or any of the silicone cases; otherwise if you don't mind gaps near the camera, consider a third party case for a fraction of the price.

    Worn after only two weeks

    • Written by Conrad B from Nobleton

    While I know a patina is supposed to develop, after two weeks it certainly has, but instead of looking elegantly rustic like on other leather products, it is more an old and ragged appearance, likely due to the sub-par quality of leather used.

    Wonderful Patina on the Saddle Brown Leather Case

    • Written by Jeffrey S from Lake Villa

    Saddle Brown patinas very nicely when used normally. This is my 2nd one. 1st one was for my iPhone 6.

    Do a Google search for "Patina Proud" and you'll get a link to a MacRumors discussion with lots of beautiful pictures of Apple leather iphone cases with natural patina process.

    Get an Otterbox:

    • Written by August T from Mill Valley

    Poor quality - stain came over after lightly cleaning it a week it. It's lost almost all original color and gets wet VERY easily. Not worth money, let alone $50.

    Look great day one. But then...

    • Written by Darren P from Bonogin

    These leather covers are a semi-aniline finish which means they have less protective coating applied to the surface in the tanning stage. Although they are a beautiful full grain hide (not corrected, which means they have no fillers or fake embossing) the lack of additional polyurethane top coat means they absorb body oils, sweats and acids much more rapidly than a fully pigmented and finished leather. After time this causes the leather to darken and eventually rot. This is the third leather case I've purchased (glutton for Apple fanboy punishment) but I think Apple needs to investigate better aniline finishes to prevent this issue. Perhaps oiled Leather with a full urethane finish? Apple needs to learn a thing or two about leathers.

    Worst cast I've ever owned

    • Written by Elizabeth T from Hamilton

    I bought this case for my new iPhone XS in October, and 2 months later it looks like it's 10+ years old. The phone goes from a protected section in my purse to my charger or my desk, and it's showing major wear and tear already. The corners are peeling/cracking, and it's discoloured significantly. I've never seen such poor quality and longevity on a case, and would not recommend to anyone.

    Would give this piece of garbage less than 1 star if I could. I got it for my mom, and not even a few weeks after she got it, it started to fall apart at the seams. It looked nice when it first arrived, but the quality was just not there. Save yourself the money and buy something else!

    Easily dropped and falls out of pockets

    • Written by Derek P from Ipswich

    Very disappointed. There is very little grip on this leather case so it easily slips out of your hand and out of pockets. Sadly I bought this ahead of the iPhone so I wasn't able to return it, despite it not being of any use. Ended up getting a silicone case as a replacement. The grip and feel on my old iPhone SE leather case was perfect - this isn't.

    Great case for the iPhone X

    • Written by Ru Chern C from Singapore

    Yes, the title is misleading but it does seem to be compatible with the iPhone X. Got this 2 months ago, love the patina working nicely. Honestly, the Saddle Brown colour is one of the best colours for leather cases and it definitely showed a bit of premium.

    Nice looking case

    • Written by Matthew M from Inverness

    Pretty good case, but make sure you put leather protectant on it, like kiwi leather shoe protectant it really helps. I’ve had a lot of these cases and it really helps.

    Nice case.

    • Written by Christian S from Roseville

    This is my first leather case. I usually just go for the silicone but decided to splurge on a leather this time. The color is very classy and is all business. The case fits the phone like a glove. Grip isn’t as good as the silicone case but overall it’s pretty good. The buttons are very nice and almost feel like the phones buttons, they are nice and clicky and responsive. After a week of use I can start to see the leather wearing in on the edges and corners. I feel as time goes on it will wear in like a nice leather jacket I will probably try some leather cleaner/conditioner to keep the case looking it’s best.

    Stained and not holding up after 2 weeks!

    • Written by Zachary P from Columbus

    I own an IPhone xs, Apple Watch series 4, iPad, and many other Apple products and love all of them. This case unfortunately has not held up like my other Apple products. Within 2 weeks, the case is stained and cracked with very normal use. I would not recommend.

    not what I expected

    • Written by Jay B from Bellingham

    It doesn't really seem like it would afford much protection if the phone was dropped. I own stock in Apple so will look at it as an investment. In the mean time a Mous case is on the way.

    Already cracking...

    • Written by Jenna D from DE PERE

    Just got this case last Friday and it’s already splitting on the corner. The color is great but quality is not. I was looking forward to this case but for the price not happy that it’s already breaking apart. Come on Apple!
