Why don’t you ask him via Twitter or other media he uses? That is the logical thing to do.
Not to be rude but can you even imagine him answering that? 99.99% of the celebrities won't even bother reading a question like this.
[doublepost=1539376861][/doublepost]Indeed, looks like the Apple Leather Case, judging by the buttons and the open bottom. He might've dropped it several times to get that look though.

people's obsession with celebrities bothers me.

does it really matter the case?

looks like the apple leather case with a janked corner from being dropped lol
Yeah that’s probably right. But it’s hard for me to see all the corners.

If anyone likes all their corners to look like that then there’s Urban Armor Gear

It’s not the first time I’ve seen people curious about what Apple product or accessory someone is photographed using.

I find it interesting his case appears to be so beat up but the phone looks decent. I guess he has AppleCare Plus!

The guy is worth almost a billion dollars. You'd think he'd keep a few spare leather cases around in case one gets damaged. That's what I'd do. If I was worth almost a billion dollars.

or he has that much money because he doesn't spend his money on things he doesn't need..

i once met mark cuban and he was dressed in a basic mavericks t-shirt and a really plain looking pants that were probably not more than $20.

That wouldn’t be within the scope of this forum. Asking about the case is, though this question probably belongs in the accessories section of the forum.

Do you need Apple care plus if you’re Kanye West? Probably can afford to just buy a new phone. It would be quicker than waiting for a Genius Bar appointment. He can just get an assistant to go the store and buy him a new one.

That's the way to end up not being worth almost a billion.

Looks like apple leather case though.

Their glass privacy tint looks pretty awesome. Is it worth the $50 price tag?

I don’t know about the display protectors. I only own the iPhone 7/8 Plus versions of the Monarch wallet cases. I own a couple of different colors of the same case.

The case protected my 7 Plus when I fell on my butt and part of my leg landed on my iPhone and together we slid about 3 feet down a steep slope during a hike a couple of years ago. It wasn’t a hard fall though, some of it was kind of intentional because it was not possible to walk normally down that part of the trail and sliding was what we were all trying to do. But my iPhone being dropped when I overestimated how far I had to lean my weight backwards and sliding with me was definitely not part of my plans!

The downside I’ve found to that particular case is that the TPU liner leaves honeycomb marks all over the phone that require isopropyl alcohol and a lot of scrubbing to remove from an aluminum surface. It’s left marks on my glass iPhones, too. Which is why I now use film protection on the back sides of my iphones, too. Some kinds of TPU or what is claimed to be TPU is nasty that way.

Sorry I can’t tell you about the display protectors.

I don’t know why some people are so negative to OP’s question. OP could have been asking, not to hero worship, but because they thought the case looked nice. There has been a number of times I’ve seen someone (either in public or on the screen) using a case that I’m interested in buying. There’s even multiple threads in this forum for people to share what kind of cases they’re using.
