Apple Debuts New Leather Sleeves for 13-Inch and 15-Inch MacBook Pro

Alongside the release of new MacBook Pro models this morning, Apple has debuted a new Leather Sleeve accessory that fits the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt 3. Apple says the accessory is made of high-quality European leather with a soft microfiber lining that ensures protection of the MacBook Pro during travels.


Colors include Midnight Blue, Saddle Brown, and Black. Apple previously released Leather Sleeves for the 12-inch MacBook, but this marks the first time owners of the Pro line can purchase the accessory, and the first time the sleeves will be available in Black. The 13-inch Leather Sleeve costs $179 and the 15-inch version costs $199.

For the MacBook Pros, the new models start at $1,799 (13-inch) and $2,399 (15-inch), featuring up to six-core eighth-generation Intel Core processors, up to 32GB RAM, the Touch Bar and Touch ID, and more. For more information on the specs for the new MacBook Pros, be sure to check out our full launch post.

Tim Cook's Apple has brought a lot of Apple branded leather products to market. A real shame that Apple is not taking the cruelty-free route. There are plenty of other material choices and options that work better than leather at protecting phones and laptops anyway. Shame on Tim Cook.

You are joking, but don’t think for a second that marketing and design executives don’t have enough control at Apple to make that a higher priority than technical innovations.

You might have a problem with leather but most people do not.

Bring on the leather Cook!

I wonder if the world's most eco-friendly company knows the environment impact of producing leather? Or raising cattle?

Leather typically isn't a cruel as an industry as fur is. I dont have any moral problems with leather.

Lol these prices! Who do they think they are. Hermes of LV?

I will get one from China for 5 bucks. It may be fake leather but at least it doesn’t discolor like my nasty looking legit iPhone 7+ Brown leather case

I've yet to find a case better for an Apple product than one made by Apple. The lining prevents damage to the finish of the product. Because of that, I can sell it for a bit more when it comes time to upgrade. Money well spent if you ask me.

I might well get one of these.

£180. For a sleeve. Golly gosh. No thanks. I would have paid £70. What are the chances I can haggle down a store rep?


What I make doesn't cost as much as I sell it for. No. You can't have a discount because you feel like I'm charging too much. lol!
