Apple Releases (PRODUCT)RED Leather Cases for iPhone 6s and 6s Plus

An official (PRODUCT)RED version of Apple's leather case for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus has been spotted in at least one Apple retail store today, as reported by French tech site iGeneration [Google Translate]. When the new line of iPhones debuted in September, only the silicone case was offered in a (PRODUCT)RED option.

The (PRODUCT)RED leather case for the iPhone 6s hasn't appeared yet on Apple's online store, but will most likely soon follow if the company keeps slowly rolling out the case to its retail locations around the country. When it does, it'll no doubt come in at the same price of the other leather cases sold by Apple, costing $45 for the iPhone 6s version and $49 for the iPhone 6s Plus version.

A portion of sales from Apple’s entire (PRODUCT)RED lineup goes to the Global Fund to help fund AIDS programs in Africa. Most recently, the company introduced (PRODUCT)RED accessories for the Apple Watch, debuting a new collection and band in the bright red color option during its September "Hey Siri" media event.

Update: The (PRODUCT)RED leather cases for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are now available to purchase on Apple's online store.

Apple likes to tout itself as an environmentally conscious company. I really wish they'd stop selling leather products then. The raising & slaughtering of cows for iPhone & ipad covers is the antithesis of environmentally conscious.


How else are we going to get rid of all those farting cows that are causing global warming?

Err, no. The cows are already going to be slaughtered for beef anyway so it's more environmentally friendly to use the skin for leather which would have gone to waste otherwise.

Isn't leather mostly a byproduct of the meat industry though?

I know some animals are raised primarily for their leather, but that's for luxury leather which is a small minority of leather in general, and clearly not the kind of leather Apple is using here.

My point is, if we keep eating as much cows as we do, it doesn't really matter if their skin gets trashed or sold as leather. Either way as many cows will be raised and slaughtered and it still won't be environmentally conscious. To have an impact we should buy less leather and eat less beef.

We shouldn't just stop buying leather while still eating red meat multiple times a week and sleep well at night thinking we're saving animals. It's good if you choose not to buy leather but you also have to reduce meat to have an actual impact. If you're doing both then great, otherwise that's something to think about before giving up on leather.

Unlike the essentially perfect design of the 5s cases, these still do not protect the edges all the way around. I finally found a third party leather case that does.

Apple had a perfect design, then messed it up.

They're not the same size/shape. These are specifically designed to fit the 6S and 6S+

Why Apple made the 6S a very slightly different size is beyond me...


I'm pretty sure the cases are the same size? They're compatible with both the 6S and 6.

The iPhones are only fractions of millimetres different, so I presume they wouldn't bother producing brand new cases.

I could be wrong.

Pretty sure Apple doesn't have a cow farm just so they can produce iPad and iPhone covers.
