    Need a new case for my 7. I hear a lot of good things about the apple leather cases. I'm wondering does it add a lotta bulk to it? I've always preferred to have minimal cases to have some protection but keep it sleek.

    Another option I like is the MagCase - Super light and good looking. But two totally different animals.

    But the leather one has that classy feeling to it.

    Anyone wants to chime in?

    Try doing a search under iPhone accessories. iPhone 7 is a year and a half old. Lots of threads and info.

    it doesn't add much bulk but the leather case is still too slippy for me really. It's why I don't use it that often when I go out and about.

    Apple Leather cAse is well made and fits perfect. camera cutout is precise. Leather is good quality and it offers more than ample protection
    Only negative is that the light colors get dirty fast some develope a ‘petina’
    Black works great
    Read the reviews in the Apple store

    It's my favorite, but I probably won't get it again because I like bright colors and dislike the way they age.

    I got my X charcoal grey just now, its not slippery and is way better grip than the soldsuit i just returned. Maybe new ones are better.

    edit, its that grippy my fingers stick a bit to sides when you push on and off. This was my main gripe with them too, very happy with this one.

    I have it in black and charcoal grey and I love it. I have tried a ton of other cases but the feel and the looks keep me coming back to the Apple leather case. It is a bit slippery at first but over a short time it gets much grippier.

    Well I'm giving it a try today and will try and rock with it with the gym too and see how it is there for grip. I think for the X plus I will go with the silcone case again and rock a spigen one as a spare going forward.

    It's a nice design and looks good but the grip has been an issue. It's only an issue if I was using it in the street or planning on taking pics with one hand I would feel uneasy. That said when the bigger model is out I will have to use two hands with it anyway

    Apple case feels real great, but I would only get black color one as other colors get dirty

    far too slippery for my liking.

    Apparently that is called patina.

    Give it a week. Slippery goes away.

    I've had it since launch. It's not gone away. Will stick with my spigen or buy the silcone case.
