I really want the spicy orange and electric blue leather cases, they are definitely some gorgeous and vibrant colors, in my opinion

I'm hoping to grab an Electric Blue. Any chance they will be in store today or likely by Friday? In the past, the stores had stock but didn't advertise online that they were available.

I really wanted a yellow leather case ever since I lost mine for my iPhone 7 Plus, but then they were discontinued. In hindsight, though, the yellow did not do well with patina (and actually scratched very easily).

I have the black leather case. Very slippery when I first bought it but over time seems to have improved.

I think these will be in stores by Friday since during checkout it said store pickup would be available by Friday at the earliest.

Does anyone else prefer the silicone to the leather? I have both but feel the silicone isn’t as slippy and has a nicer feel in the hand!

I prefer the silicone. For me, I just like the texture & how the colors (for the most part) remain the stay.

The new silicone colors are pretty lame. Lemonade looks just like Flash, and yet another subtle variation of red and blue...not tempted to grab any of these.

The new leather colors are great though-especially that orange! Having owned Apple yellow leather cases in the past has taught me that they wear in an unattractive way, unlike the darker colors. The orange should be ok, as it is a bright color, but darker on the value scale.

Is lemonade just flash renamed? Or actually different ?

Totally prefer the silicone. Better grip and easier to clean. Not as classy as leather though.

If you look at the Apple Watch bands on the Apple Store, the Lemonade is just a little muted compared to to Flash. Really close, but different.

Dang in that case, flash looks much better imo


That orange leather IS HOT

These are fad colours for me.

I should get my X delivered this week, so I'll be getting a black Silicone case tomorrow.

I really like the black silicone. Just wish it didn’t attract so much dust/lint
I wipe my case down every second day anyway. Being able to use a damp cloth to do that swayed me to the Silicone over the leather.

My Orange leather is going to be delivered today. I ordered as soon as I could yesterday.
Good thinking. I have a feeling that one is going to be hard to get quite soon. It’s the coolest new case by far.

I had a Spicy Orange silicon then returned it after it had an issue. Then when I went to rebuy it was out of stock and never came back. Wanted to make sure I didn't miss this one!

I was hoping for a green color in the silicone.....While I currently have & like my blue colbalt, there are four blue hued colors (out of a total of 13 options).

Would've been cool to have a green added to the mix (I'm kind of "meh" on the dark olive). I probably would've picked up a forest green or something lighter if it were available.

I give up on Apple's color decisions. They are always vibrant. Never any dull muted colors. I need the green!!! I get it that they darken quickly. I don't care. Always with pastels. Sucks. On another note still bitter about not having a black leather MacBook Pro sleeve....One more thing...their attempt into education is laughable.

Hello, i am from Germany and this is my new Bright Orange iPhone X Leather Case. Electric Blue looks awesome too. The other case on my picture is a Taupe leather (2 month old)

I much prefer the Bright Orange Leather’s deep orange, over the pasty Spicy Orange Silicone.

Leather feels more slippery, but the Silicone is a fluff magnet.

The photos don’t do it justice, but the metal-look buttons look great too!
