    Hi Everyone?

    Just got my 6S and the midnight blue leather case. I love the colour and the feel of it but it is an incredibly snug fit.

    It so snug to the point I was worried it didn't fit and I had to work it round the corners to get it on. I assume being leather it will stretch out a bit. Anyone else have the same?

    Though the box was it came in i a nice touch!!

    Thanks!

    Did you buy the 6 or 6S leather case?

    I've heard the 6 leather case fits pretty snug, the 6S also fits snug but not as tight.

    My midnight blue silicone is really tight. I've chipped it taking the phone in and out (only about 3 times!)
    Will exchange tomorrow!!

    Ive got the 6S leather case. Its feels like really nice quality and I can get it on/off. Just seemed a bit tight and a bit small at first!

    I had the green silicone cast for the 6 and mine chipped in both corners and started peeling. It was after about 6 months though!

    I got the midnight blue 6S case as well, and mine is super snug too. I got it on, but the power button does not click well it all. There is no feedback at all. I had the iPhone 6+, and had 3 Apple leather cases for it. None of them were this tight, and none of them had a power button that tight. I don't know if taking it back would do any good, it seems like it would be tight as well. Anyone else having trouble with power button being hard to push?

    Are they so snug that a glass screen protector couldn't be used in conjunction with the leather case?

    Something like this:

    I think you would have a hard time getting it on. I am sure it could be done, but it might be hard.

    The leather may stretch but the material under it won't.

    I too find my midnight blue 6S case extremely tight. I had to roll the corners up a few times to get it to really fit. I'm almost worried that the case may put some torque on the phone. It feels great, but I don't think they changed the size at all for the slightly bigger dimensions.

    It is very snugg.

    Ruined an screen protector for me. Got said protector for .50 cents on slickdeals, so no big deal, but fair warning.

    Seems this is a common theme with the new leather cases.

    Not sure and quite honestly I don't know if there is anything wrong with the case being more fitted. Maybe over time it breaks in a little maybe not.....we shall see

    Well the power button on mine not working is my issue. The tight does not bother me that much.

    The 6S plus leather case is much more snug than the iPhone 6 and leather case I had. Way more snug; seems like it barely fits in fact.
    I do notice that the volume rockers and power button are much harder to push... Though the leather may just need some time to wear in.
    On my previous Apple leather case the buttons could be pushed very easily right from the get go.

    Same here. The Rose Gray case on my wife's rose gold 6S is SUPER snug and the power button is very difficult to press. It's slightly easier with my black 6S and black leather case (the new 6S version of the case), but still not as good as the iP6 and the old leather case.

    My wife has always had the white iPhone and I've always had the black models and it almost always seems like her white models are a snugger fit than the black phone for whatever reason. I think I read years ago (maybe with the original white models - was that the iP4?) that the white model was found to be EVER so slightly thicker due to white paint issues and light leakage or something. Not sure if this is still the case.

    I love about an hour away from an Apple Store, so that is no go for me. Let us know if the silicon fits better.
