The iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro will go up for pre-order on Friday, September 13. One week later and the phones go on sale, so why not make sure you’ve got your new device protected right after you take it out of the box (or at least pretty close to launch)?
To help out with that, we’ve put together a nice list of leather cases for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max. Each of the cases feature a leather design, and should help to not only protect your new smartphone, but also give it a nice look, too. Some of the cases aren’t shipping just yet, so we’ll let you know below when they become available so you know ahead of time.
So let’s dig right in.
Best leather case for iPhone 11 in 2019
- Nomad Rugged
- Nomad Active Rugged
- Pad & Quill Bella Fino
- Pad & Quill Aria Luxury
- Apple Leather Case
- Apple Leather Folio
Nomad Rugged Case
The Rugged Case from Nomad features Horween Leather, sourced from the renowned Horween Leather Company out of Chicago, Illinois. This means the leather will age over time, giving it a very distinct look, but not wear out. The Rugged Case provides up to six feet of drop protection, and supports wireless charging as well.
There are two color options for the Rugged Case for the iPhone 11 series (brown and black), and it has a thin profile so it should be easy to handle with daily use.
- Rugged Case for iPhone 11: $49.95
- Rugged Case for iPhone 11 Pro: $49.95
- Rugged Case for iPhone 11 Pro Max: $49.95
Nomad Active Rugged Case
This variant of the Rugged Case features natural water resistant properties thanks to the tanning process used. This also boosts the leather’s overall durability, making it more resistant to scratches and other wear and tear. It utilizes Heinen Leather for this case, it supports wireless charging, and keeps the slim profile design.
Two color options for this case as well, brown and black.
- Active Rugged Case for iPhone 11: $49.95
- Active Rugged Case for iPhone 11 Pro: $49.95
- Active Rugged Case for iPhone 11 Pro Max: $49.95
Pad & Quill Bella Fino Edition Leather Case
We’ve got two options from Pad & Quill that are worth listing. The first is the Bella Fino Edition leather case for the iPhone 11. This is Pad & Quill’s most popular case option, and it has a lot to offer. It’s constructed from full-grain American leather and features Marine-grade, UV-resistant, nylon stitching with French hem styling. The interior wallet can hold 5 to 7 cards, and has a spot to hold cash as well. There is an elastic strap (which can be replaced with colorful options) that holds the case closed.
There is a quick access viewing area for an ID or driver’s license, an expanded camera aperture opening, and all of the ports and buttons are easily accessible. It is also fully compatible with wireless charging as well.
Pad & Quill offers a 30-day money back promise, and there is a 25-year warranty on the leather as well.
There are five different color options to choose from, and the option to buy a three-pack of elastic bands for an extra $10. The Bella Fino starts shipping the week of September 28.
- Bella Fino Leather iPhone 11 Case: $69.95 (for a limited time)
- Bella Fino Leather iPhone 11 Pro Case: $79.95 (for a limited time)
- Bella Fino Leather iPhone 11 Pro Max Case: $79.95 (for a limited time)
Pad & Quill Aria Luxury Case
The next option from Pad & Quill is the Aria Luxury. There are two color options available for the iPhone 11 series. This case actually offers the majority of the bullet points available in the Bella Fino, but with one primary difference: the Aria Luxury features a snap-on interior case, which is held to the leather with an adhesive technology from 3M. That interior case is satin-finished as well.
You’ll have to wait a bit longer for this one, though, as it starts shipping the week of October 6.
Here are the prices:
- Aria Luxury iPhone 11 Case: $69.95 (for a limited time)
- Aria Luxury iPhone 11 Pro Case: $79.95 (for a limited time)
- Aria Luxury iPhone 11 Pro Max Case: $79.95 (for a limited time)
Apple Leather Case
Interestingly enough, Apple only has leather case options for the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. The iPhone 11 gets left out of the leather case mix. But if you’re in the market for a Pro-brand iPhone 11, and want to keep the case options first-party, then Apple has some options.
Apple says the leather case won’t add any additional bulk, and it’s a “specially tanned and finished” European leather. That should make the case feel soft to the touch, which will develop a “natural patina” over time. The buttons are made from machined aluminum, and it has a microfiber lining inside to help protect the phone.
It also supports wireless charging.
Apple says its cases are tested over thousands of hours, so they should be able to keep your new iPhone 11 Pro or iPhone 11 Pro Max protected for quite some time. There are a variety of colors to choose from, six in all, including a Product(RED) option.
These leather cases from Apple are available now and shipping immediately.
Here are the prices:
Apple Leather Folio
The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max also have another leather option from Apple, this one being a folio. This option only has two colors to choose from, but it is available now and shipping immediately, so there’s that.
Apple’s specially tanned and finished European leather will fit snugly around the phone in this folio case. Just open the top and the iPhone will wake up as well, while closing the folio will put it to sleep. There is a microfiber lining inside the case to help protect the phone, and it supports wireless charging as well. The inside pocket can hold “bills, small notes, and several cards”.
Here’s the pricing breakdown:
Totallee Thin Leather Case
Totallee has made a thin case for the iPhone 11 series, making it pocket-friendly. They offer a two-year warranty and there is no branding on the outside of the case at all. It has a camera lens “lip” for additional protection for the rear cameras, and the case covers every corner of the phone while still providing access to the buttons and ports.
The Thin Case from Totallee for the iPhone 11 series is shipping within one business day if you order today.
Here are the prices:
Bellroy Phone Case
The Phone Case from Bellroy is a minimalist design, featuring a combination of leather and polymer. It features a “super slim profile”, is backed by a three-year warranty, and should be able to keep your phone safe through every day usage.
Bellroy says if you buy now, the Phone Case will ship in six days. If you act quickly you may be able to have this case by next Friday, when the iPhone 11 series goes on sale. There are four different color options to choose from: Black, Caramel, Coral, and Graphite.
Here’s the pricing:
Mujjo Full Leather Case
The Full Leather Case from Mujjo offers a straightforward design, keeping the case thin so it’s easy to handle on a daily basis. It features full-grain leather, which the company says will get even more beautiful over time with general wear. It has a “grippier” and “warmer” feel thanks to the design, and will protect against every day usage accidents.
There are several different color options. The only thing to be aware of here is that if you live in the United States, you will be importing this product, so delivery may take some time. It is expected to ship within 48 hours of a placed order, though.
Here are the prices:
- Full Leather Case for iPhone 11: €37.11
- Full Leather Case for iPhone 11 Pro: €37.11
- Full Leather Case for iPhone 11 Pro Max: €41.24
The Ciel leather case from CYRILL features a smooth leather design, which should make it comfortable to use every day, while also making it easy to grip. While the outside of the case is designed to help prevent damage from drops, the interior of the case also features a soft microfiber design to help prevent scratches while the case is equipped.
As usual, CYRILL’s cases are “powered by Spigen”, adding a bit of a big brand’s name to assure overall quality. The case also features the near-standard raised edges to protect the display and rear cameras.
The Ciel leather case from CYRILL is available in Taupe, Forest Green, and Saddle Brown colors for the iPhone 11. The same case is available in Black and Taupe for the iPhone 11 Pro and in Black for the iPhone 11 Pro Max. It’s available to buy now.
