3 Reasons Why You Should Buy an iPhone Leather Case
As an iPhone 13 owner, you might think there’s no phone quite like it. Your iPhone’s design is sleek, light, and has a high-quality finish.

Furthermore, the technology in your iPhone 13 is excellent: 1TB (maximum) storage, Super Retina XDR display, A15 Bionic chip…It’s all unmatched in quality.

Yet, here’s a shocking secret: you're still not at the top of the iPhone food chain.

While your iPhone 13 is a strong contender for first place, it's simply beaten out by an iPhone 13 in a Pro (or Pro Max) Leather Case – and we'll explain why.

However, before we do, rest assured. Like an athlete training for a marathon, we’re going to also show you how you can level up your iPhone by buying a leather case. Today, you’ll learn three undeniable reasons why you should buy a leather iPhone case.

1. A Leather Case Offers Your iPhone Extra Protection (Especially Your Camera)

We’ll start with a fairly obvious reason: a leather case offers extra protection.

Now, while we’ll admit that most cases on the market offer extra protection, a leather case goes that extra mile by also offering your iPhone’s camera protection — something that many cheaper cases on the market overlook.

Here’s what our camera protection looks like:
To elaborate on what makes this protection special, our leather cases use a sleek and subtle gunmetal finish with aluminum machine threading to protect your camera lenses from scratching (or from damages if you accidentally drop your phone).

In comparison, most other cases on the market have nothing more than an opening for your camera lens (as seen on the left in this iPhone X case example).
Of course, while the above iPhone X case is certainly better than no case at all, it doesn’t afford much shock protection for the camera should you accidentally drop your phone.

However, that’s only touching the surface of an iPhone cases’ benefits.

Alongside this added camera protection, our leather cases are also compatible with SANDMARC Lenses and Filters — meaning you can take your camera shots to the next level, all while keeping your phone protected from scratches and drops.
2. Premium and Supple Leather Is the Best
As your iPhone gets older, so does the premium leather your iPhone case is made from. You might think this is a downside — however, leather is like a fine wine; it improves with age.

In fact, as leather gets older it:
  • Smells better. Surely you’ve pulled out that fine-smelling leather and enjoyed it? It’s a soft odor — almost like cinnamon.
  • Grows stronger. As leather ages and goes through wear and tear, it strengthens. Meaning your iPhone case won’t ever deteriorate with age. It’ll be the first and last iPhone 13 case you’ll ever need.
  • Feels soft. The longer you have leather, the better it feels. Honestly, find a bit of old leather (like a fine leather belt) and feel it. What do you think?
All of that aside, a leather case in all of its natural material glory just looks good. It doesn’t look cheap and it even grows a beautiful natural patina over time. In a nutshell, a leather case really improves that already elegant look of your iPhone 13.
3. Compatible with MagSafe Accessories
Did someone say wireless charging? Our leather cases utilize a minimal design that specifically works with MagSafe accessories. This includes your MagSafe charger and car mount — perfect for long journeys.

Even better, this leather case with MagSafe support works seamlessly. You don’t have to worry about having perfectly aligned magnets or anything like that — you can just use MagSafe as you would have done before you had a phone case.

In fact, we’ve talked about what to look for in a MagSafe case, and our iPhone Pro Leather Case and iPhone 13 Pro Max case hits all of these marks.

Frequently Asked Questions?

Is iPhone leather case real leather?

It depends on what brand of case you get. Our iPhone Pro and Pro Max cases are made from top grain premium leather that protects your camera and is also compatible with MagSafe.

Some cheaper iPhone cases will be made with faux leather. This means you won’t get a patina with age, the design will be more grainer, and you won’t get any of the extra camera protection that our cases offer (though even a faux leather case is better than no case).

Why are there iPhone Leather Cases?

Quite simply because leather is great. It ages well, gets a gorgeous patina, smells great, feels soft, and is a statement that your iPhone is one you genuinely care about.

Imagine a cheap, flimsy, synthetic case on your iPhone. Or even a silicone one. They offer limited protection, look cheap, and often get dirt trapped under them. With a leather case, this won’t happen. Having a leather case puts you in a league of your own — which we at SANDMARC wouldn’t trade for anything.

Did Apple stop making leather cases?

The Apple store still does make leather cases, and they do often have MagSafe capabilities, but they won’t afford you any extra protection on your camera.

They’re also not compatible with our lenses and filters, meaning you’ll have to remove your iPhone from the case whenever you want to take pictures (not very helpful if you’re traveling in terrain where you’re more likely to drop your phone).
