    Yes, that would be a valid option. I guess since I ordered the original one with the iPhone I could see if they would allow me to send that one back? Don't know for sure.

    Or contact Apple and see if they can warranty old one out and maybe put a hold on a CC and send you new one and then send old one back.

    Hi folks, thinking of getting an Apple leather case for my matte black iPhone 7.

    Should I go with black or maybe saddle brown?

    Thanks!

    I am using Black on Black and I like it. Someone in another forum asked about the black with saddle brown. I found this photo on Google for a reference.

    New leather cases have metal buttons. That makes them much better than prior cases. Easy to turn on/off, and up/down. Solid construction, well made. They are dust magnets. I use compressed air every couple days to blow out around the edge of the phone and case.

    Thanks man. Nice improvement, and about time! Yeah I am using a cheap Spigen at the moment and mine is a dust magnet as well. You think this case is worth 45 bucks man?

    My theory is if I am paying $850 for a phone, another $45 to protect it and show it off is perfectly acceptable. Considering I use the phone often, every day it's an essential part of life. Even if I replace it once a year $45 / 365 = $0.12 a day. I think it's worth it.

    Makes sense when you put it into perspective like that.

    So no issues with the black leather?

    I have my matte black 7 blacked out with the leather case. Love the look.

    For me, always leather! Been using them since the 5S and love the way the leather ages....just not when it gets scuffed.

    I really like how the leather case looks but I always prefer naked or, at most, a thin crystal clear TPU Case so that we can still see the design of the case.

    The black really does look pretty cool. I also have a matte black iPhone 7 and I chose the midnight blue leather case. At first I didn't like that it was not dark enough so I got some coconut oil and rubbed it in and it now looks pretty dark and I really like that look. That black on black looks pretty nice too though.

    I just got the black leather for matte black 7. This one is much nicer than the previous apple leather cases. So far I like it a lot (and I don't like cases much).

    I don't like silicon cases because they are hard to remove from pockets. The leather cases scratch really easy. That's why I prefer TPU cases.

    While the black is classic, the brown is, in my opinion, nicer because of the contrast. Be advised: it will wear over the time faster than the black, as far as the color is concerned. Not everyone like the aged color of th brown leather

    I can see the hard to remove from pocket if they are wearing skinny jeans.

    Thanks for the advice. May have to go the the Apple store to check them out in person.
