Deals Spotlight: AT&T Discounting Apple's Silicone and Leather iPhone Cases to Just $5 [Updated With AT&T Statement]

by

AT&T today is offering a selection of Apple's silicone and leather iPhone cases for just $5.00 in new condition, during a limited time promotion. Cases in the sale cover the iPhone XS, iPhone X, and iPhone 8 Plus, and these are as much as $45 off their original prices with lowest-ever price points seen for new versions of the accessories.

Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with AT&T. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

Apple's leather and silicone cases are built to fit snugly onto their respective iPhones, providing full access to the volume, silence, and lock buttons. iPhone XS cases do fit on iPhone X devices, although there may be some small gaps in the camera cutout on the rear of the case.


You can shop for all of the special prices offered by AT&T on Apple's iPhone cases in the list below. At this time, it's unclear how long these prices will be staying around.

Note: if you purchase three cases at once, you can automatically mark the cost of each case down by another $1 thanks to AT&T's current "Grab and Save" discount.

iPhone XS

iPhone X

iPhone 8 Plus

Lol I wonder if Apple had a surplus from lower than expected iPhone sales and dumped them on ATT at a steep, steep discount.

Totally expected this comment. Perpetually people complain about high prices and then when literally ANYTHING is on sale people say it’s a sign that Apple is in trouble in some way.

I'm willing to bet zero people in this thread have received any communication or a 30% code.

Classic Bait & Switch. Offer an impossibly good deal to get people in the virtual door and then have no stock and then direct people to the rest of the store. The real galling part is that they initially delayed shipping until a specific date and *then* canceled the order several days later.

The 'leather' is such a scam and that's all it's worth.

It's just a plastic case with reconstituted leather (i.e. leather offcuts pulped, mixed with a glue, painted onto the plastic then textured). Over time it just falls off leaving you with a plastic case.

I wish there were laws against calling recontstituted leather 'leather'. It's so not the same thing as a proper hide.

Not true.
