    It’s a fine idea, but they should have woven extensive durability testing into the design process.

    Good. The fine woven case I got looks like shit after six months. Not so much the “patina” on the back (tho it does look dirty), but the laminate (?) peeling all around the sides.

        I don’t doubt it. I used to be a hardcore Rinke Slim advocate and those are like 10-20 bucks. I switched to the apple cases back when the leather cases were actually good quality. They haven’t been for years now and this woven shit is even worse. Mag safe kept me coming back but I think I’m ready for third party again.

        Yep, my $10 clear plastic case still looks fine and works with wireless charging.

      It’s weird, because I don’t think I am too careful with my phone, but my woven case still looks good. Some scuffs on the back and no issues with the edges.

      No idea why mine is not having issues and others are.

    Surprised they didn’t consider cactus leather. My Orbitkey has been holding up great.

    Seeing Apple admit a fail is always such a treat. Hope the replacement will be even better than the last leather case!

        This is what I had read about the iPhone 13 one too and I was ready to jump on the hate train, but I’m pretty pleased with mine (got it for free when I bought my phone). I’ve been using it for around six months and it’s looking the exact same as it did at the beginning

    Cool. I’ll keep buying real leather instead of the next synthetic crap they come up with.
