    I've decided to purchase an Apple Leather Case for my iPhone 6. Trying to decide on a color. Any suggestions for the Space Grey model? Leaning towards the Product Red, but it seems like that color may not hold up well based on what I've read here.

    Thx!!

    Welcome to iMore. I like the Black or Red, but the final choice will be yours.

    Welcome to iMore. I think the red one might get dirtier. I would go with the black. It's your choice you have to live with it. Enjoy your iPhone 6!

    I'm thinking of getting one too. The only one I would consider is black. To me it looks the best.

    Yeah but with the new leather cases, it's more durable and didn't get as dirty as before

    Red will get discolor very quickly like all the light colors. I recommend the Midnight Blue or Black if your worried about the discoloration. I have the midnight blue and I really love it

    I have a friend who picked the red case for his "5s" while I chose the black one. Within a few weeks his had dark patches where the oil from his skin had attracted dirt to the case & dis colored it...and while my black one undoubtably did the same, it didn't show. My friend tried to call the discoloration "patina"...but it was really ugly.

    The red case does look great with the space gray iPhone 6, and I hope you're right about improved durability, but I got the black one again from experience.

    Welcome to the iMore forums.

    Quick recommendation - scan the front page before you post a new thread. There is already an Apple Leather Case thread. It will help you get the right answers fast. If you have specific questions regarding the case I would change the title.

    Yeah I don't blame you. I was kinda sceptical about getting the red one, but I'm happy with my purchase. I'm thinking of buying the black leather case. It looks promising.

    Black is a solid choice, doesn't lose color and looks classy IMO

    Thanks for all of the replies! Went to the Apple Store and they had a few of the cases out on the counter so I tried them on the phone. The red case looked awesome!! However, I ended up choosing the midnight blue (they didn't have black). I think a dark color will hold up best. Looks pretty sharp. Fingers crossed! Thanks again!

    I got the back one and it looks good. Almost like Darth Vaderphone. It's a quality case, not bulky at all, and looks great.

    I picked the midnight blue over the Black because I had the black with the iPhone 5, and I also agree that dark colors hold up better than light colors.

    Go for black. The dirt won't be visible on it.

    I have midnight blue on my space grey iPhone 6 and it's awesome!

    The blue leather seems very similar to the black leather case I had on my iPhone 5. I've had that case on for over a year and it has some scuffs but it's not pealing or in bad shape at all. These cases should last.

    I curently have the red leather case and it is great, very nice looking. Ive been using it for about 2 weeks now and is still new looking, no scuffs or discoloration. I like the case so much im thinking about getting another in the color brown or black.

    I had the red one but I found the leather case to be too "slippery". Those cases do look awesome though.
