    Hi everyone,

    Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations on the official Apple phone cases. The website shows leather and silicone ones. I'm curious if they look and fit as nice as in the pictures. Also wondering if the silicone ones collect pocket lint, which i despise. Thanks for the feedback

    The silicone cases attracts lints and dusts. I much prefer the leather over the silicone. It feels and look better. I used to have a silicone case from Apple for my 6, I then tried the leather case for my 6s Plus, and oh boy did I get another leather case in a different color for my iPhone. Absolutely love it!

    In my experience, the silicone case does attract a little lint, but I don't find it terrible. I have both cases and I prefer the silicone to the leather, for a couple of reasons. The leather I find less grippy than the silicone, so I am afraid that I will drop it or have it slide out of my pocket (which has happened once with the leather.) The leather also feels as if it will protect the phone in a fall less well than the silicone.

    They do fit well, and that is one thing I don't like about the silicone: it is hard to remove without pressing against some of the buttons or toggling the ring/silent switch. The leather is easier to remove.

    I now use a different case most of the time, but I do occasionally go back to the silicone case.

    There is a big thread about cases already where a number of people discuss those two cases in the sticky section at the top of the list of topics.

    The Apple cases feel and look really nice. But I want more protection than what they offer.

    I've got the leather and I love it. I've tried other cases and I always go back. Never had the silicon. Tried it at the Apple Store and much preferred the look of the leather. Just looks more high quality to me and I enjoyed the feel. It fits nicely and it keeps the slim profile of the iphone which I love also.

    I have other cases, but I find myself always coming back to my Apple Leather cases after a couple of days using the others. I really like the Apple Leather cases much better.

    I have both the leather and silicone. Both top notch and low profile. I take the leather off and use silicone when I run bc I'll sweat through my tights and get leather wet. I know ... totally gross.

    I have white silicone on a rose gold 6s. Absolutely love it. I don't have any trouble with lint, and the smooth/grippy feel of the silicone is really nice.

    Apple leather is awesome. I've had the midnight blue and the classic brown.

    • Leather will change color over time. Darker colors will look more natural while the lighter colors may look more "dirty".
    • Silicone will get linty, in my experience. With a black phone it may not be as noticable as it is on white.
    • I've dropped my phone with the leather case several times and it has been fine.


    I've bought a bunch of cases, and the Apple leather is the one I've stuck with the longest. I was hesitant at first, but I love it!

    I have leather cases in saddle brown and midnight blue as well as a white silicone case. Love them all, but the saddle brown leather is my favorite.

    The midnight blue just got darker, almost black, on mine. The classic brown got darker, and definitely looks NICER than it did when I first got it. Very happy with how it has turned out and "aged".

    Same thing happened with my midnight blue case. I liked it better new. My saddle brown has aged wonderfully.

    My Black Apple Leather case is my favorite and my Saddle Brown has age very nicely. I will probably use my Product Red Leather case sparingly as the aging process makes it look dirty. IMO, the Black on Space Gray just looks more professional than any other case, but my other leather colors look nice as well.

    Just ordered a new havane leather brown case for my Space Grey iPhone 6s because my girlfriend loved it so much i decided to offer it with an iPhone 6s Silver. So now we're both with our iPhones and our havane leather cases. I tried a lot of cases for my phone, but nothing beats the feeling of leather.

    I purchased the Apple Black leather case for my space gray. I was torn between the Midnight Blue and the black, but in the end, I went with the black. It looks, and smells AMAZING!!!

    The blue will eventually turn almost black 😊 this one took quite a tumble.
