    Yesterday morning I went for a jog. My 6S+ was in my back pocket. During my jog, I heard a noise and looked back to see that the phone had fallen out of my pocket. The phone fell into the cement path and bounced into some small rocks/dirt on the side of the path. I was joggin in the park. After careful inpection, I noticed a small crack on screen. I had the phone in Apples Black Leather case, it had some damage on the side of the case. Now there's a small crack in the glass, in the lower right hand corner of the phone. This is so strange because the case covers all corners of the device, and I thought I had read that these cases are designed to protect from short falls, I mean my back pocket is no more than 4 feet from the ground, and I wasn't even running that fast, more like jogging.

    If you really want to prevent cracks like this, put a case on the front too ;)

    The only way to really protect the screen is with a tempered glass. The same thing happened to me in a parking lot. Difference is the tempered glass broke but not the actual screen.

    My 6+ cracked a few weeks ago using an Apple leather case. It's a defective case for real protection. Mine cracked due to the exposure on the bottom of the phone. I'm now using a better case, and also have a glass screen protector (which I did when the screen cracked). Really, there are no guarantees unless you put your phone in some massive brick like an Otterbox or something, and even then bad things can happen to good phones.

    It's not defective if it makes no protection or drop claims.

    I feel your pain. I once went outside into a blizzard in a fleece windbreaker, and I realized the fleece must be defective, since I was cold and wet.

    Maybe you should install a tempered glass protector.The same thing happened to me last week. Difference is the tempered glass broke but not the actual screen.I just need replace the screen protector.And thanks iPely from Amazon,with a lifetime warranty so they send me another.

    This. Apple makes no claims that their leather cases provide any protection other than against scratches. No reason to think it would.
