Not black, but my olive brown is starting to wear and I love it. Getting darker/shiner around the edges. Most people would be irritated, but I think its cool and can't wait to see what it looks like a few months from now. I'd imagine the black will wear similar.
Bro, what's the color of your case?The case is really nice out of the box. To the point that I feel that the leather itself is too delicate. I can't just leave it on the table during meals, because of potential water contact.
When I go for runs, I have to make sure sweat doesn't get to it.
On normal days, I have to make sure my pocket is clear of anything that might scratch it.
It's only been 3 days, and I feel blisters coming up and the bottom seems to have a very small peel which I am wondering how to repair.
Beautiful case. Probably too beautiful to withstand daily use. At $60, it's just too tiring to baby it all the time.
They exchange it even outside the 14 day window?On all of the apple leather cases, do not get even remotely wet or put down on even a little bit of wet counter. They immediately 'bubble up' and blister. Many many posts out there about this. Seems the leather loses its bond or something. Apple apparently exchanges these without issue tho. That's a deal breaker for me. Chances of a few drops of water on cases is common. This shouldn't ruin a case IMO.
My bubbling hasn't gone away. I dont recall it getting wet either. I am exchanging for a new black leather case. If it happens again then I am going with the silicone version.Been using the black leather case since launch day. It still looks and feels great. Had some of the "bubbling" referred to here - but it goes away by itself.
I tried an experiment: I put a drop of water on the back of the case. After 5 minutes the leather had completely absorbed the water and swollen up in a raised circle. After a few hours, the water had evaporated and the swelling had practically gone (there was a faint ring where it had been). It's now 3-4 days later and there is no trace whatsoever. It looks like new.
Keeping this case.
