    Nice case.

    I like this darker shade of brown over the previous one.

    My Blue case is still holding up although I do see the beginning a crack/tear in one of the corners after my last trip.

    Good luck with yours.

    Thanks Charlyee. So the overall thickness is smaller than my current bumper!

    My Apple Olive Brown leather case in the iPhone 6. Space Grey.

    Fits like a glove (as Charlyee kept telling me). Perhaps thinner than the old case, and it has an open bottom now.

    So fits more connectors and docks, and may not break at the bottom weak areas on the older cases. But I imagine it will break elsewhere if removed enough times. Reminds me of a similar case I had for the iP 4.

    This one has a lip, and makes the protruding camera lens become recessed slightly from the leather surface. So it lays flat on the table.

    Leaves the surface clear, so overlap onto the screen. and allows the round glass front to disappear into the leather.

    Very happy with it.

    The iPhone 6, 4.7", with Apple case fits perfectly into my Klipsch speaker dock. And with the open bottom, I don't have to take the case off, or use the AUX input into the back. Finally I have a great solution to this.

    From another user, Olive Brown leather case on Space Grey iPhone 6. It's dark brown. I don't understand where the olive is.

    My understanding is they don't actually use olives when making cases :D

    That being said, they were probably looking at something like this for inspiration

    I've to admit the color is close, a bit more brown. And not shiny and wet!

    The color of olives is actually all over the spectrum. At the local stores I've seen samples of green, black, various shades of brown (yellowish, copperish, reddish) so it's possible there's one much closer to the case color than the picture I found. And if you dry them out (especially the ones cured without oil) they are a lot more matte in appearance.

    So I'm cutting down on the numbers of cases I plan for the iPhone 6 and for traveling.


    1. Apple leather case.
    2. Life proof case (when available)
    3. Sena leather pouch (Heritage UltraSlim)

    The last one is always a good spare case if the others break while traveling. Hard to break a pouch.

    Well that the plan. Sort of like New Year resolutions though. ;)

    I am planning the same myself. I plan to just stick with the Apple Case, that's what I have basically done with my 5 and 5s anyway.

    I have tried other cases and always come to the Apple Case and specifically the blue one.

    Of course these could be famous last words. :D

    Just ordered the Apple Case in midnight blue.

    So now I can go crazier yet by looking at an empty case for 2+ weeks. :D

    It has been 2 weeks with my Apple olive brown leather case.
    I see signs of a darkening patina around the left/right edges, creeping towards the back of the case. Basically where I hold the phone in my hand. Just like if I had used a leather conditioner, the oils from my hand absorbed into the leather.

    I don't mind this, as the color is deeper, darker brown (those olives are changing color, dmapr). And unique. I would include a photo, but I think it is way too subtle to see. So I think the black, olive brown and Midnight blue will be quite fine. Perhaps if I had the light tan or red, that might be disturbing.

    By comparison, my year old Sena Ultra leather pouch is remarkably unaffected.

    So I and still happy with the case color, and Apple's choice of darker leather was a good one. If it wasn't for the current unevenness, I wouldn't have noticed it. I like the darker brown.

    My Midnight Blue Case came today. Here it is side by side with my black 5/5s case. The case feels just as nice as the previous ones but it is thinner I believe.

    The 6 sure looks quite big compared to the 5/5s.

    Now all I need is a phone to put in it. :D

    Yes it does seem large at first. Don't worry it feels great when the phone is inside.

    My Sena slim Heritage arrive. Fits smoothly and really smells great!

    One has to think that Apple made the IPhone 6 so thin that it's case plus phone made a perfectly sized product. I have always said that Apple should made the phones back with a leather or poly back for more grip.

    Now there it is. It blends into one piece, with the right thickness. The open bottom finally allows for docking and other earphone plug sizes.

    Just my opinion

    I love the look of the Apple Navy Leather case with the White iPhone 6 front. I was going to get that one for my 6 and 6 Plus, but I'm not sure I like the open part at the bottom of the case. It seems like it would make the bottom of the phone more prone to scratches.

    If you drop phones a lot, it's not for you. It seems over 4 years or so, my hands have become coordinated for carrying phones. :)

    I never have near misses anymore.

    I hear Gresso makes a decent iPhone 6 case. Unfortunately, a tad out of my price range...

    I don't drop them very often, but the other day my 6 slipped out of my hands when I was out at Triage and it landed face down. No damage at all thanks to my Glass screen protector and Spigen Clear Case Capsule.

    I just ordered the "Encase Ultra Thin FlexiShield Gel Case - 100% Clear" for my iPhone 6 Plus. It's coming from England but should still arrive a few days ahead of the 6 Plus.

    I picked up the brown leather case from Apple. I had every intention of getting the black but when I tried it at the store the matt black of the case was not playing nice with the shiny black of the phone.

    This is a very nice brown and looks good with the black face.

    I believer its thinner than the 5/5S case and a nicer texture. I made a vow to have only one case this time around, will see how that goes. :)

    Nice combo,eh? I have the same. It's turning towards a deeper brown but still good looking.

    I know this isn't a case but it's the only one that I found with great reviews that works well with the iPhone 6 plus. So I placed an order for the Black one today. I normally like wearing an armband when I exercise but couldn't find one that would fit the 6 Plus with a thin case on it.
