Apple's iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C cases come in many colors, September 20 release date

Apple's iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C cases come in many colors, September 20 release date
How many people do you know who have an iPhone and are using it without a case? Well, we sure can't think of many. As pretty as the handset itself may be, most people simply prefer to have it in a case, thus making sure it doesn't get damaged by accident. Apple must have taken note of that as well as it just announced a broad selection of protective cases for its iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C smartphones – accessories that will surely draw in some extra revenue. 

The iPhone 5S cases are definitely of the premium kind, being made of leather of various colors. These include brown, beige, black, yellow, blue, and red. The cases, however, as elegant as they may be, provide only light protection by leaving the front of the smartphone exposed. Price-wise, each iPhone 5S case will cost you $39 when it is made available on September 20. 

The iPhone 5C cases, on the other hand, are made of a slightly less expensive material, namely silicon. Also, their design might not be anyone's cup of tea as they seem to have been inspired by a futuristic film from the '70s. Nevertheless, they allow for color mixing and matching as they expose the handset's original color as well. These iPhone 5C cases will cost $29 when they are released on September 20.

So these are the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C cases that Apple has designed, but we're sure that third-party accessory manufacturers have come up with products of their own already. Which one would you pick if you get an iPhone 5S or iPhone 5C?

The 5C starts at £469 ($740!) for 16GB in the UK! That's a pretty big ask for the ugly sister.

My God they are truely awful looking cases for the 5c but they will sell well no doubt as every ifan will buy them them as they upgrade from the iphone 5 to the new iphone 5c and also 5s.

With the new design of ios 7 and the colours in the iphone 5c the Iphone is certainly starting to look very suited to its most popular user base,teen girls

Ive never used a case on my android handsets,they don't smash as easy as iphone glass has. Every ifan knows you NEED a case of just keep handing money over to apple to get your screen repaired. Currently I'm actually using a Lumia 925 as a work phone and its taken many falls without even taking a scratch tbh.

Speaking of Nokia,they've noticed apple has been busy copying them!!
