    Just purchased a blue leather 6S case for my 6S and the power button seems harder to press than my previous black leather 6 case. For those of you that have had a leather 6S case for awhile, does this wear in and get easier to press? Also the leather seems more slippery than the prior case?

    To fix this, simply remove from phone and use a blunt thin object (such as a teaspoon handle end) and push in repeatedly whilst pushing back with a finger.

    Should improve it for you.

    I've had the saddle brown and now the black one, and the buttons do break in with normal use. It took about a week or two.

    Excellent!

    It's a fix I discovered way back on the 5 leather case with the same issue.

    How do tou remove the case (i have a silicone one) from the phone? have you a specific advice please before starting to force too much on it? I was thinking of lifting the lower corners (one at the time) but it looks a little bit stiff. Thanks for your help please.

    I usually start by pulling back the bottom corners one at a time. Then the case just pops right out. The case seems to stretch and sort of fit to your phone the more its used.
