Let's say that you're looking for an iPhone case – a case that can protect your handset from scuffs, scratches, and accidental drops. Well, there are tons of iPhone cases that fit this description, and really, pretty much any one of them will get the job done. Finding a decent case that goes beyond its primary purpose of providing protection, however, is a bit trickier as the list of available options is much shorter. But with a little digging on the internet, one can come across some clever, well-made iPhone cases that combine several functions in a single protective accessory. Here's a list with 10 of the coolest multifunctional iPhone 5s we found.
