Early reviews of Apple's new iPhone cases are worrying

Apple's launch event for the iPhone 15 made much of its move to a more eco-friendly type of casing for the phone. It announced that it would no longer be making leather iPhone cases, replacing them with a new proprietary FineWoven material. 

The microtwill material is made from 68 per cent recycled content and is said to have a much lower carbon footprint than leather. That's certainly something to welcome, but early reviews are suggesting that this new product released alongside iPhone 15 shouldn't cost the same as previous leather cases.
