Apple Decides To Pull The Terrible FineWoven Cases And Watch Bands From Production

Apple took the decision to ditch leather when offering premium iPhone accessories last year when it announced the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro, replacing it with a new FineWoven material.

However, the material has proven to be problematic ever since, and now it seems it might have been canceled.

The FineWoven material was found to feel cheap despite its leather-like pricing while those who bought accessories reported that they often looked worn quickly. Now, a new report by the X leaker Kosutami claims that Apple has stopped all production of the FineWoven accessories due to a durability issue. The company is now expected to move to another type of material but will not go back to leather.

The leaker does have a history of sharing accurate information relating to FineWoven accessories so that’s worth keeping in mind here. However, until Apple confirms something it’s important to confirm this isn’t yet official news.

Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro this coming September and that’s likely when the company will share details of new accessories.

The FineWoven accessories were supposed to offer a premium experience and were priced as such, but they’ve instead been largely hated by buyers despite Apple’s claims they’re made from “luxurious and durable microtwill”.

Accessories that are now expected to get a new material include iPhone cases, MagSafe Wallets, and Apple Watch bands as well as AirTag holders.
