I love my iPhone. I love the feeling you get when you unbox a new iPhone and I love the feeling of cold metal and glass slab in your hands. The beauty of a naked iPhone is like no device ever. (I think that’s why we pay a premium?)
After all those great feelings, how could you make it uglier by putting a case on it?
What’s the second thing you do when you get a new phone? For most people, they put their shiny, thin new device in a bulky plastic/rubber case that has very little design appeal. If you’re feeling generous to Apple you can pick up a ‘premium’ leather case. It’s made by Apple so you get a well made product but there’s no getting around the fact that it’s a bulky leather case.
I used to be a brave soul. I refused to put my phone in a case. I’d scoff at the thought of covering up such a pretty device. Then I met the iPhone 6 Plus..
Side Note: I was embarrassingly devastated when I broke the screen. I felt like I accidentally killed my best friend. Luckily, I immediately made an Apple Store appointment and got it swapped out, I didn’t have Apple Care so I had to buy the replacement which was in the $300 range. After that experience I always get Apple Care now…
I never broke a screen until that design came around. As it turns out, Apple really likes rounded corners now and all iPhones since the iPhone 6 days are relatively the same shape.
The new iPad Pro gives me hope for a case-less future. The iPad Pro has that awesome square design that in a phone size would be a joy to hold without a case.
What about you? Are you one of the brave few that go case-less? If you do, give me some tips and encouragement to join you again 🙂 Until then I guess this leather case will do…
