So last year I was one of the many folk disappointed with the Apple leather cases. That was in part my fault for choosing such a light colour (the green/yellow colour).

I note this year that Apple has very sensibly opted for darker colours on the leather cases. My question is how are your cases holding up 10 days after launch?

What about those of you who chose the nice light coloured silicone cases how are they now looking folks?

The wife has the pink silicone on her 6+ since launch day and is holding up fine, still looks and feels brand new. Hasn't nicked, bumped, dropped or scratched it...yet. Over time i'd suspect slight discoloration just from normal use of dirt and oil from the hands. Something that some warm soapy water should be able to tackle.

I had the red, I returned it after it started peeling after 7 days.


Thanks folks. Some good, some bad then. I think I will probably opt for the black silicone then...

Right there
Sorry, I should have specified. I had & returned the red leather case. I now have the black & red silicone cases, and they are holding up just fine.

I have had the brown leather since launch day - 1. One of the corners seems to have worn a little but other than that, not peeling, blistering or anything. So far no complaints.

i'm going to return the red leather soon. i like it mostly, but the power button is damn near impossible to press sometimes.

I've had my Midnight Blue leather case on since I bought it last week, and I love it. The power button is easier to press than when I first got it, it still looks great, and the feel is fantastic. I did just apply some water protection treatment to it and it seems to be picking up more dust than it did before, hopefully that's only temporary.

That being said, I did just order a red silicone case which will probably be my daily driver. The blue will be for when I want to class the place up. ;)

I usually have two or three cases on hand for when I get bored and want to give the phone a different look/feel.

I've had the black leather since launch day and it looks fine. I did buy a black silicone yesterday and I'm really liking it too. I think I'll be using the silicone for every day use and the leather for weekends.

What about the white silicone case? Has anyone been using that case since day one? Could you post pictures please?

The blue leather case is already showing that wear where some parts look black and worn.

Otherwise, it is perfect. Buttons have broken in nicely.

Pictures please

I don't have any, but it is the same as this:

They ALL wear like this.

However, it is much less noticeable on the blue since the blue is so close to black. Can't tell unless you look at an angle.

Kind of even looks cool at this point.

As long as it still has the navy look and not all black from a small distance, I'm happy :D

The picture don't look too bad, kinda cool looking on the blue tbh
