    Hi

    Anyone using the Tan Apple Leather Case? I have an iPhone 7 Plus in matte black. I switched from a silver to a black phone and I am finding it harder to locate the phone on darker surfaces. Perhaps the Tan case might help? Anyone purchase the Tan case and like it? If you purchased it, what phone are you using it with?

    Thanks

    Yes, someone bought it. Not me, but someone did.

    Seriously though if you like the tan color, and want a case, buy it. I'm the type that hates cases and has always had a hard time finding one that didn't annoy me. The apple leather case was the first case that didn't feel like an insult to my iPhone. I actually got the silicone version for my 7 Plus, and I have to say I like it just as much if not more than the leather. I wish it had the metal buttons, but I'm ok without them.

    And yes a case with some color to it will help it stand out when you lose it in the couch or bed.

    What phone do you have?

    I'm also considering storm grey. Has anyone chosen that option?

    This is my first phone with a black front, since 2012. I like it. I just did not feel the Tan worked well with a black phone. I can see it as a great match with the gold of silver phone. Black or storm grey, were very tempting, but I was concerned the phone would more easily disappear if placed on a dark surface.

    The silver and gold phones that I had previously had a silver or gold circle around the home button, which made it easier to locate compared to the black. I miss that.

    I change up the face color every so often myself. Both look great in there on way. That Matt Black looks really good and your right the tan wouldn't look as good with it.

    Looks great. Mine is slightly darker than what your picture shows. Could be sample variation or the effects of looking at a picture.

    I tried the saddle brown. For me, the case was too dark and blended into our dark brown linens, in low light. The Tan proved to be a better match. I returned the saddle brown, after one day.

    What does Apple do with the returns ? Do they go back into inventory in the store?

    Thanks

    TBH credit to apple recommendations. That's how I saw it first.

    Orders the Saddle Brown for my black 7 plus however exchanged it today for a black one. The saddle brown is very nice and I think it would have looked even better after being worn in however I just like the look of the all black.
