There's nothing quite like good leather, especially when it comes to protecting your shiny iPhone XS. When leather is good, it looks good, feels good, and even smells good. Best of all, a fine patina develops on the leather over time, so that it even becomes more attractive as time goes by. Leather ages well, and it's classy as heck. Here are some of the best iPhone XS leather cases.
Slim, yet elegant
Mujjo's full leather case wraps your iPhone XS in a full-grain, vegetable-tanned leather that looks beautiful and feels soft to the touch. It retains a slim profile while protecting your iPhone XS from everyday wear and tear. The leather breaks in and acquires its own patina over time, so it just gets better with age.
You honestly can't go wrong with Apple's own genuine leather case. It's slim and form-fitting to wrap around your iPhone XS perfectly. The leather is soft and provides excellent grip for your device. Plus, there are a ton of color options to choose from, with new ones released every few months, so pick up your favorite hue today.
