    The new Apple leather cases are pretty slippery. Does anyone have any suggestions for curing these--like with linseed oil or something?

    Get some leather conditioner from an auto store or amazon. It will help "break in" the leather. Or just use it until it stops being slick, after a little while your fingers will wear the leather enough to make it less slick.

    Coconut oil for conditioning is all you need. It will darken it quicker that way.

    not sure about linseed, lol, it's a good wood conditioner and paint thinner. Neet's foot or mink oils are good for leather. just get the real deal and not the ones made from petroleum distllates.

    It's PU leather. Doesn't need curing. If you want to darken it, use an oil.

    No, it's not PU leather.
