Hi,

My Space grey iphone 6 plus ia shippingon November 14. I have started searching for they leather cases. Struggling to choose between red black and blue apple leather cases.

Found this website selling without iphone logo.

What do you guys think. I can get a genuine red from apple store and a bk as ck from the above website.

Is it possible that the seller could actually get the same quality leather cases and apple is actually selling at such a huge profit margin.

Decisions Decisions

It is most probably a fake.
Apple has such a stringent policy.

London, UK.
Most likely they are Chinese fakes or copies which would not be surprising since I believe that is a Chinese retail site.

As you are looking at a (red) case I would not buy from anyone other than Apple. The profits in this case are going to charity.

True. RED will be purchasing from apple for sure. Thinking of taking a Black as WELL. BUT CANT afford to get both from apple store.

Buy the cheaper ones. They are basically the same, but without the Apple logo. Both are cheap leather stretched over a soft shell. Both cost about $1 to make. Thats why Apple exchanges them so easily. They dont lose money even if you exchange multiple times.

maybe fake, but don't think there is much difference in quality, official case is also cheap to make
