Apple's signature, one-piece leather iPhone 8 Plus case comes in five to six colors depending on your retailer, and in terms of its design, certainly looks like a premium case. After installing our iPhone 8 Plus and using the case for an extended period of time, I noticed a handful of drawbacks that you'll want to take note of.
First, the leather itself: Out of the box, the leather is extra susceptible to scratches and dings due to its finish. Everything from fingernails to car keys will carve sloppy looking lines into the case's skin. That said, we've seen this style of case naturally darken over time, which goes a long way in smoothing the scratches out. The texture is also quite slippery—even more slippery than a naked iPhone 8 Plus.
It's possible that the case we bought was defective, but it's also worth pointing out that the hole in the back that accommodates the iPhone 8 Plus's dual camera is crooked, so the outline of the hole doesn't line up with the outline of the iPhone's camera hump.
Right now, this leather iPhone case from Apple is about $42 on Amazon. This price tag isn't indicative of quality so much as it is a result of being a first-party Apple product. If you've used and enjoyed variations of this case in the past, you'll probably love this one, too. However, if you're at all skittish about handing over $40 for a simple, leather case, you might want to pick up something else.
The model we tested should fit both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 Plus. It's available in brown, black, red, grey, midnight blue, and taupe.
