    Easily my favourite case for the iPhone

    • Written by Andrew H from Greenway

    This is my second leather case (first one was for the iPhone 7). It was the only case that I had confidence in protecting the Jet Black finish. The leather wears beautifully over time, unlike most other cases that only wear out. The aluminium buttons have a great feel to them, but I wish the hole for the ringer switch toggle were a tad larger.

    Looks great, wears poorly

    • Written by Chris L from Seattle

    This case looks and feels great for the first month or so, then steadily develops scratches and uneven wear. If you drop your phone this case will protect it, but theres a good chance you'll get gouges in the leather if it lands on a corner. For the price I'd like something more durable. The term "tougher than leather" does not apply here.

    Nice feel, bad case

    • Written by Adam J Z from Montreal

    From an aesthetics standpoint, it's not bad, the texture feels nice in the hand. As a case, it's terrible. It's much more slippery than the bare phone (so you're much more likely to drop the phone with the case on), and it's super fragile. In less than one week the back was covered in tons of big scratches in the leather despite having been treated gently. I returned the case for a refund.

    Great Quality At A Great Price

    • Written by John P from New Haven

    I feel $50 is a completely reasonable price for a solid, well-made leather case. I have nothing but positive things to say about this case other than I wish I had ditched my previous case earlier!

    Black is the best leather color for wearing well!

    Excellent case

    • Written by Robert W from Los Angeles

    This is NOT my first leather case by Apple. I've used these every since they first came out with them so I know how good & bad these are. No this case is not the case for drop protection, Please get an otter box if that's what you need. I didn't buy this for that. I have apple care for that. I love these cases for these reasons. Sleek, Sophisticated & keeps sides and back from scratches, Excellent Quality leather (black is the best, I say that because I have had colored cases,they age fast. I love the case, oh and it makes holding this HUGE but beautiful phone a lot easier.

    Quality, Style, and Durability.

    • Written by John K from Dayton

    The Apple leather cases have always fit well. The aluminum buttons are a nice touch with a very tactile response, and the mute switch is very accessible. Additionally, the black leather case has a much smoother finish this year than the black iPhone X case I had last year- that case had a more pebble-like texture and grain- the new version for the XS Max has a smoother grain, which feels better in the hand and looks much more elegant. This is not the case for you if you constantly expose your phone to a hazardous environment, but if you take care of your phone, this is one of the best cases you can get- the perfect balance between minimalism and protection. The black color wears well and hides dirt and discoloring better than any of the other colors.

    Excellent case

    • Written by Tim M from Scottsdale

    Great material and build quality. Adds protection without too much bulk, which is just what I wanted. Hopefully it stands the test of time!
