I’ve got two phones, and typically upgrade each year, so I’ve used a lot of options. Most of the cases I’ve used have been Otterbox or Apple, although Lifeproof and some random brands have been in the mix also. Long story short, I got my first of these for one of my iPhone 12’s. When I got my new 13’s, I bought an Otterbox Symmetry and a similar minimalistic clear design from Insignia. After a few days I’ve noticed my hands were sensitive in several places from ridges on the cases. Not defects, just parts of the hard plastic designs that over time were really annoying. Yesterday I picked up the case I’m reviewing here and swapped out one of the others for comparison.
I’m typing this review while waiting for the second one of these cases to be ready for in-store pick-up. It is MUCH more comfortable in the hand. It is smooth for ease of moving in and out of pockets, but the leather still provides a soft and grippable surface which I don’t fear fumbling.
For me, these cases are the perfect balance of moderate protection, comfortable use, and minimalist design. Not cheap, but for something I use throughout every day, worth the expense.
Great case as always by Apple since it’s fully enclosed. In certain angles the case looks black, but the true color is like a dark blue. The picture I took compares the top (iPhone 12 Pro Black Leather case) bottom (iPhone 13 Pro Midnight Leather case) I think the transition to two colors is awesome.
I’ve used the Apple leather case on all of my iPhones since it first came out because it feels and looks good and is not thick. So far, I feel the same way about the new iPhone 13 pro leather case.
I used the 11 pro leather case for two years and the leather case protected it really well but the leather did start to look not as good after about a year. The 13 pro leather case has all sides covered; whereas the 11 pro case had the bottom open.
One thing to be aware of, the camera bump part of the case is not flush with the case so the phone is not completely leveled when laying flat.
Overall, I highly recommend this case. It fits well, looks good, and gives me the protection I want.
Elegant. Slim. MagSafe... what else needs to be said? is it worth $59+... maybe not but this does feel premium and it being Apple's own line with MagSafe makes this an easy pick up. Sure there are more affordable options out there or even more expensive ones. When you purchase any device $800, 900 or $1k plus can you really skimp out on cases? doubt it. pick this up you'll like it!
Just purchased this purchased this case in wisteria. It has a more blueish hue on the display photos and when you take a picture of it but it's more of a dark lavender color with a purplish hue.
The case has perfect cut out and buttons are easy to press. Love that it fully covers the phone unlike the clear MagSafe case that's open on the bottom.
Only complaint is that if you use any MagSafe accessories, it leaves an imprint of the magnet on there.. I have a MagSafe pop socket and put it on my case overnight and it already has an imprint.
If that doesn't bother you then definitely get the case it's worth the investment!
Case fits well, cutouts line up. Phone recognizes it as an apple case vs third party. BUT, it will not protect well, or at all, in certain drops. If you push on 3 of the corners, not the one with the camera cluster, the case pushes back easily. If a drop were to hit one of those 3 corners you can forget about protection, your phone will be damaged. Minus 2 stars for subpar protection. Next issue, I have the "Golden Brown", essentially orange, and I love the color but it is already beginning to show signs of wear in the corners after just 5 days of use. I can't tell if its scuffed or dirty. Either way, the case will look like crap after a few months. At $60 I expect premium, there are $5 cases that hold up better than this. Minus another star for subpart quality (should be 2 due to cost). I do not recommend.
Great minimalist case that offers some protection.
Owned for 2 weeks when reviewed.
Great minimalist case that offers some protection. The case is snug, but easy to install and remove if necessary. It offers more grip friction than the phone itself while still sliding into, and out of my pocket easily. It’s a bit pricey, more than I’d spent on other cases, but I wanted light weight and a slim profile this time around and it fit the bill, especially since in stock options that were comparable were pretty slim pickings.
I bought this hoping for a true honey leather color and when it arrived, I excitedly opened the box to see... orange. The case is otherwise great so far and I am happy that apple have returned full protection to the bottom of the phone. I ended up using some rewards points on this to bring down that painful price tag, though. I expect some patina to eventually form to make a more worn in leather look, as I got with previous apple leather cases, so all is not lost on the color. However, I saw the dark green version in store and really wish I had gone with that, because it looks so good.
