    Updated "Slippery" feel has improved after a week

    I always loved the Midnight Blue color case for this phone so I purchased this for my iPhone 8 Plus, since the phone is the same size as the 7 Plus - it does fit. It does look great and the inside soft felt like fabric should protect the new glass back on iPhone 8/8 Plus from possible heavy scratching, smudges and fingerprints. A slight downside right now is that this is my first Apple Leather case and the very first thing I noticed was how slippery the sides, top are. Very different compared to my old Apple 6 Plus Silicone case which I found had very nice grip to it, there was no fear of having it slip out of your hands. From what I read on other sites this case, especially the Midnight Blue (Storm Gray model also) yes others found it extremely slippery at first but after a week or two the grip felt much better. I suppose it's basically "breaking it in - the leather will become softer in time." So I will hold on to it and hope it does just that. *Update - Sept 30. The case feels much better since my initial review, not as slippery. Also keep in mind, these do scratch easily, expect minor scuffs . It's not damaged with deep scratches where the case it compromised or it looks just bad. I basically see this like a pair of new sneakers, you will get scuffs. I don't mind it. But If you want a case that will look pristine for a long long time - this may not be for you. Perhaps a leather cleaner/conditioner will remove these, make it look new again. I'm not sure right now, it's something I personally need to try at some point. I still like the case.

    iphone 7+ survived fall off motorcycle @ 60mph

    My Piaggio MP3 cycle has an app to display system telemetry on the iphone. I was using my brand new iphone 7 plus in a Ram mount, which is supposed to be extremely secure. As I was exiting the freeway at 60mph, I watched in horror as my new phone leapt out of the Ram mount, bounced off my foot, and disappeared on the freeway behind me. It was at night, and my case is dark grey, so it took a few minutes to find it against the grey pavement, and frankly I was surprised it hadn't been run over by the cars behind me. Although the leather case took a beating on the back and especially on all 4 corners, the only damage I can find on the iphone is abrasion on the power button on the right side. Amazingly, the leather case completely protected everything else!

    I used to purchase the other cases but with my iPhone 6s I decided to go Apple. I loved the case, it protected the phone great and it looks really nice. I put a zagg screen protector on the front glass for extra protection. I probably dropped that phone 20 times over the year I had it and nothing ever happened to the phone. The case took a beating and the screen protector cracked but the phone stayed flawless. So, now that I just purchased the iPhone 7 and had to get a new case it was a no-brainer.I'm attaching pictures of the iPhone 6s case, its basically the same just the new one has a wider camera slot. Believe it or not the case in the pictures was saddle brown when I purchased it. That is the one thing about the leather cases, they change colors widely.

    I'm that guy who has owned every iPhone except the 6 +the 6 was a big step purely because of the updated size from the 5 which was awesome! I had realativly small Tumi case which didn't increase the size tremendously, I took the bait however and went to the ginormous 7+ and must of tryed 25-30 cases doing my best to shrink it,not until I put on the apple leather case did the 7+ feel at home, litterily fits like a glove,a thin lip not to scratch the screen cutout's are perfect as is the grip just enough to not sli from the hand and still slides easily into the pocket, not a lot of protection yet I did drop it on the tile, bounced of of a corner and landed face down,to my amazement "nothing", I will never own a different case, even when the IPhone 10 is the same size the iPad mini5

    I actually bought this case for my iPhone 6s Plus. Though it's for the 7 Plus it fits perfectly. It does slightly cover the outer rim of the camera lens, but it does not interfere with the camera. I have always loved the Apple leather cases but the old ones didn't have physical buttons for the volume and sleep/wake. They were always hard to push or hard to find to push on. The 7 Plus case has physical buttons that has a great "clicky" feel and are easy to find and push. The large camera opening on the case might look a little strange on a 6s Plus, but it functions perfectly. I highly recommend this case.

    Great looking case! I had the red for 12 months and it was starting to look very tired, now wanted to upgrade the feel of my phone since I’m not going with the iPhone X...apple cases fit snugly, look great and offer some good drop protection! I’ve maybe dropped my phone in 12 months only 5 times, but on concrete, tile, carpet and the case had protected my phone. You can always see where the case made impact, but the leather does actually look better after a while. So the “self healing” leather is actually not a gimmick! After a year my first case did look “dirty” even though that was just the leather color wearing off. Still fit snugly after 12 months. Great leather cases by Apple.

    Back when I had an iPhone 6S, I loved my all-black Apple Leather Case. When I saw that these updated cases had REAL buttons, I had to have it. I must say, I LOVE the feel of the buttons. It's a real, physical click instead of having to mash your finger into leather (like the previous models). I am very weary of dropping it, as I would hate to have cuts in the leather. I also sometimes get the back of the case with my fingernail or something, that causes a scratch in the leather. It eventually rubs out, and this is absolutely not a design flaw, it's just something you should look out for it you think it'll bother you. Above all, I'm very curious to see how the leather ages on this wonderful case.

    Best part of buying Apple accessories is that they have a 1 year warranty. Comes in handy if you damage the case in a drop, just visit an Apple store and they’ll swap it out (with proof of purchase). The saddle brown is a clean looking style. Professional but classic. The color will show scratches and if you put in your dark jeans pocket, expect some color transfer. Apple uses leather that doesn’t age as well as other leather but you’ll get an aged patina nonetheless. The bottom is open so it won’t protect your phone from drops directly to the bottom (from personal experience). If you’re buying this for an iPhone 8 Plus, it will fit but it’s going to be a snug fit.

    I have two cases for my iPhone 7+, the leather in saddle, and the silicone in black. The leather is much slimmer than the silicone, which makes it much easier to carry when wearing slacks or dressed up. No, it can’t be rinsed off like the silicone case if you get it dirty/muddy working outside, but that should go without saying. The saddle color has also started to develop a nice patina around the edges which I really like. If you want your case to stay the same color forever, a non treated light colored leather isn’t for you. If you want something that gains some character as you use it, this will so nicely.

    This case seems expensive when compared to some of the other iPhone cases, but the difference is in the details. The case fits the phone perfectly, the buttons are actual metal buttons, not just indentations that you press. The interior of the case is soft and will not scratch the phone (assuming it isn't full of beach sand), and the case is tight enough to prevent stuff from getting between the case and the phone. This is my second Apple branded iPhone leather case, which have both been perfect. I previously had an off brand leather case on an iPhone 6 that scratched up the corners and top of the phone worse than if it had no case at all.

    Very nice minimalist leather fitted case. Quality leather that develops a nice soft patina over time. Just beware it offers little protection for your screen. I don't care for screen protectors and dropped my phone just so it hit the edge not covered by the case and it shattered. Still this apple case is my favorite and I continue to use it . It provides a nice non slippery grip and is minimal enough to enjoy the sleek form factor of the iphone. The saddle brown develops a beautiful rich worn leather patina over time and it's my very favorite of all the apple leather cases. I bought two to make sure I had a back up case.

    So I bought three of these cases by ordering them online and then picking them up at my local Best Buy. Two of the boxes were already open. The pretty blue one had a chunk of leather missing from the top. I didn't have time to run back in the store, so I kept hoping it wouldn't bother me, but since I have been asked to do a review, I am going to be completely honest. I am unhappy that I was sold a defective item that had either been returned or opened and damaged on the floor. This makes me question shopping with Best Buy again if their quality control is so poor. I hope someone sees this review....

    I upgraded from iPhone 6 to iPhone 7 Plus and needed a case. Originally went with a clear case to show more of the phones design but within a few months specks of dirt or particles of sand like pebbles got in between the clear case back and eventually put small hairline scratches on the back of the phone. That's when I decided to go back to what works best which its the Apple case. The Apple leather case is well made, soft felt like interior keeps the phone protected from debris that could scratch the phone and the case has a slim profile so it fits in your pocket easily. Highly recommended.

    I bought this case because I wanted something a little more handsome then my Otter Box. The online store photos of this case look great, but when I saw it in person it felt cheap. Once it was on the phone however I was blown away. The thinness of the case combined with the leather make this an awesome option for anyone wanting a minimal case profile or more formal option. Disclaimer: this case offers no protection whatsoever, its not meant to. It's meant for asthetics. Overall, it feels great to hold and over time it's supposed to develop an awesome patina. I'm looking forward to that!

    I have used this type of case on my iPhones for the last few that I have owned. This one has a little bit different of a design. The buttons are actual buttons on the side instead of being a part of the case. That's not really a good or a bad thing but it is different. The only downside about this case I would say is that it does scratch a little bit more than previous versions of it. Overall, if you were looking for a professional looking and durable case then this is the one. It does not slide right off of the desk if you push it a little bit nor does it have that tactical grip on it either.

    This case goes beyond what you usually expect from a case. Not only does it provide a sufficient amount of protection to your idevice, but also adds a professional/elegant look. That being said there is still one aspect of this case that I really enjoyed. THE FEEL! The genuine leather feel is unexplainable. This case does not turn your pockets inside out when it is pulled out and at the same time becomes very grippy and secure when placed on slanted surface or when being held in hand! Apple went a step further to provide satisfaction for its users!

    Very well made, I did get the first leather smell when I opened the packaging of the case. My Iphone color is gold and the buttons on the case match very well with the gold theme. If you like how leather ages this a great case for it. This case fix the problem I had with other brand cases, the other cases will interfiere with the flash, making night photography hard when flash on (white smoke like images). Not a con but I would like the case to fully cover my iphone as it has a long cut out on the bottom for the speaker and the lightning port.

    I have a few differnet cases for my phone, but this is my favorite. I love the look and feel of the real leather. I have had past versions of the Apple leather case and I noticed that on this newest version for the iphone 7 series phones they have added one special touch. The power and volume buttons now have a small metal anodized button that is made into the case. This solves a problem that some of the older ones had where the power button was a little hard to press. I couldn't be happier with it.

    Just got this not 5 hourse ago, and I already have a chunk that came off just because it fell through my couch. Like really? How is a chunk going to come off just falling in a couch? if that does that kind of damage to it then what will droping it on the ground do? Its not worth $50 to me, my $12 Amazon case did a lot better than this. Wish I could get a refund....
