    A friend aboard want to for me an Apple case
    I don't have apple store in my area so I don't know which color best suite and looks better for silver white iphone? The blue or the saddle brown? or another color combination?
    (or the silicone apple case? is it a magnet of lint as I saw the comments on apple site?)

    thanks a lot for the help!

    Depends on what you prefer but a silver phone would look so sweet w the blue leather- it looks great w the rose gold (love the blue)

    Get a dark colour. I have the Rose Grey. It doesn't stay that colour for long. Mine is now a dirty black-sand colour. Not nice. Doesn't look "aged". Just looks dirty. Which is why I contacted Apple Support and they gave me a refund.

    Thank you for the comment, I saw your case here at the forum. looks relly dirty and stain.
    How's the silicone? is it attract dust and lint, or should I go for a Midnight blue?

    I haven't got a silicone case yet. I've read they pick up dust and lint, but I'm not sure if this is really a problem. It probably depends on what your pockets are like and what colour case you get.

    I'm thinking... If you get a leather case, get a dark colour so that when it gets dirty and goes black on the edges it won't show up so much. If you get a silicone case, get a light colour so that dirt and lint won't show up so much.

    But anyway, I've ordered a silicone case in Mint. Hopefully it goes well, or I'll contact Apple about it and get a Black leather case instead.

    I have the saddle on my 6S+ and its aged a bit like an old leather jacket. Very cool!

    I just bought a saddle brown for my space grey. Looks so nice. I'm thinking of applying mink oil on it to condition and protect it. Did you apply any leather conditioner?

    What 'look' do you like? I love that mine has a nice worn look to it, dark patches, some light scratches, etc. Character. But some don't like that.

    I like the worn patina look. Just wondering if I should apply a leather conditioner.

    I've not applied anything but it can't hurt.

    In actually have both for my gold 6s. If I had to choose just one I'd go with the saddle brown. If you don't like the aged weathered look I'd go with the blue. It darkens more to a dark blue / black eventually.

    Just got my Apple iPhone 7 plus case in the mail.

    It's no bluer than previous models (something I was hoping for as I find they go a little black).

    Much closer in terms of feel to the iPhone 6S leather case than the 6.

    Midnight blue looks awesome at the start but goes dark blue - almost black in some light within about 6 weeks. It's not unattractive but don't expect the blue out of the box to last forever. I can post pics when the sun comes up...

    Can u please post pics of the new buttons please. Also, do you still have a 6S+ to test the case on. In particular the area around the camera. Thanks.

    I just got the black Apple leather for my matte black plus. Looks so good. Anyone here recommend leather treatment of any kind, especially now that the phone is water resistant?
