I was looking at the official Apple leather cases on the Apple Store website and it seems that the case does not actually cover the bottom of the phone:

The Apple leather cases for the iPhone 5 did indeed cover the bottom of the phone - wonder why Apple have designed the iPhone 6 cases with no coverage at the bottom??! :confused:

With cutouts for the holes it would make some areas crazy thin. There would be a bunch of cracks. Even more than the 5/5s version. With that I already ordered the black leather. I was a case freak. This for me will be the only one.

Because their 5S cases didn't fit docking stations etc, pretty sure it didn't even fit their own docking station. Personally I like the bottom being open.

From what I can see on the stock pictures on apples website, maybe i'm wrong, the cases have a complete bottom cutout this time around

I'm going to pick up the project red leather case for the 6+. I like the way Red on black looks. When I had a 5s that was the case that i used.

Red Leather Case

I'm going to go with the black because although I did like how it looked with my black 5S, the case got dirty really quickly for me :(

These are just a bald face money grab by Apple. Nothing unique about them and for the price there will be cases w/ better utility and/or design from 3rd parties soon. I'd just go w/ a Spigen or Minisuit starter case right now. Lots of choices under $12 shipped.

I loved the black leather case I used for my 5s - held up remarkably well over the year I had it.

Will likely get the midnight blue leather case for my iPhone 6 when it arrives.

Ordered the blue, got the black one for my 5S and I never used another case since, still looks and feels great.

No other case feels as good in the hand than the Apple leather case. I loved mine, and it saved my phone from a couple of falls. I had black and it still looks great.

I ordered a black one for my 6, but I am a little pissed about the bottom not being covered. That might be a deal breaker for me...I will see when I get it. Just in case, though, I also ordered a Spigen Capsule in black that covers the whole device.

I think the midnight blue would look awesome on a white phone and the olive would look awesome on a gold phone. I go black for my space grey.

I also got the black one, really looking forward to it and I definitely agree, the blue would look amazing with the white phone. To be fair if it was to hit the ground the bit that does go round the bottom would protect it and raise it slightly, unless you were unlucky and hit a rock in the ground, I quite like the bottom being open.

Why is an open bottom on the Apple leather cases an issue? You'd have to drop it on something just right to hit the phone there.

I personally like the entire phone covered...it is more aesthetically pleasing to me. It looks odd when the case covers all edges but the bottom.

Like i said, this is judging the pictures that are available. When i see it on my phone in person, I might not think it is that bad.

Love apple's leather case. I'll be ordering one of these for my 6+ Space gray.

My only debate is whether I keep it sleek and go black on black, or go with midnight blue. I agree that the blue would look better on the white one, but also think it looks nice on black. Just curious how much dirt that midnight blue would show.. That's the nice nice thing about the black is you know it won't show dirt at all.

I ordered the Apple black leather case for my iPhone 6 and then cancelled and ordered the midnight blue leather case instead. I saw a picture of the actual midnight blue case and it looks great. The olive brown also looks good.

I was just literally gonna buy one one of these from the online Apple store, HOWEVER, after adding the £35 case to my basket, it then adds another £4.80 for delivery on top making the whole case cost just under £40?!???

Sorry but NO WAY is this case worth £40.........:eek::eek::eek:
