    Hello guys, I was wondering if anyone had a picture of the cocoa silicone case on a matte black iPhone. Which one looks better, the cocoa or the black one??

    Thanks

    Love to see as well. Bought a Cocoa sport band for my SG watch today and the combo is great. Will most likely pick up for the phone too.

    So the cocoa is the old dark grey? Is the new black actually black?

    It should be darker than the gray and brown. I'm sure color balance and lighting come into play here. I have the cocoa watch band and it looks really sharp on he Apple Watch and is most definitely "cocoa"

    I have the black case in hand. It is BLACK. It is no longer charcoal like the old silicone case. There are videos on YouTube of the black case. Really sharp as well.

    Isn't cocoa supposed to be like dark brown or chocolate brown? The pics make it look like it's grey or lavender?

    It's definitely a brown. Maybe a brown with a hint of gray but definitely brown. Wife has it on her white iPhone. Thinking of getting it for my iPad. Really love the color.

    Agree. I have the Ocean Blue on my gold iPhone 7, but am thinking of getting the Cocoa or black one next.

    I bought the cocoa sportband for my gold (aluminum) watch and the color combination is stunning. Ive had strangers tell me how stunning it looks.

    You except him to post a pic of a stranger telling him how good his watch and band look together? I suppose I've heard stranger questions asked on here:D

    I ordered my coca silicone case from Apple online and it arrived today.

    Anyone spot the problem? Other than it is navy blue. IMG_0090.JPG

    • It's a public forum.
    • This is in a thread discussing functionality and aesthetics of cases and other accessories.
    • He bragged about how aesthetically stunning his particular setup is.
    I don't think asking for a picture is that out of place.

    Yep, I got an iPhone 6/6s case in an iphone 7 package. The package was not opened.

    I contacted apple and have sent it back to them. Amazing apple support yet again.
