iPhone 5C isn't official yet, but these iPhone 5C cases are
You've probably heard of the iPhone 5C. You might have seen photos of the iPhone 5C. And perhaps you've read the rumors about the iPhone 5C

But is the iPhone 5C official? No, not yet. Apple is expected to announce the device on September 10 during a special event. This, however, isn't stopping accessory makers from designing iPhone 5C cases already.

While browsing through one of the halls at IFA 2013, we came across a stand where protective cases for the smartphone were on display, inside their retail packaging and all. These particular iPhone 5C cases are made by Krusell – a Swedish manufacturer of smartphone accessories – and come with "lifetime warranty", as it is said on the box. 

Casemate is also among the companies with iPhone 5C cases almost ready to ship. Judging by the accessories' shipping date, the iPhone 5C should be on the market on September 20.

These photos are either faked or there is some new information in them. The front of the iPhone 5c in these photos appears to be white. So far, all "leaked" photos showed a black front, even the ones showing a white iPhone 5c.

What's the point of iPhone color options when cases are almost a must?

Not everyone uses a cover up case.

Got a rough estimate of how many iPhones have a cracked screen/back? Most of the ones I see are cracked.

"Geniuses" is the correct spelling. Not bashing, or trying to insult you either.

I agree. They shouldn't go the android way

At least they didn't go for a fake metal rim or faux leather and stitching.

That awkward moment when fake metal and leather are more durable than real aluminum and leather.

They may look cheap. But knowing apple these color options are likely going to be a hit. I can see the commercials now. A hipster song on in the background the phones changing colors. This could solve their problem of customization cause their OS hasn't changed. But I'll be honest in love my S4 but if I could order it in different colors I would have been flipped my s**t if I could. And I know they offer different colors now but I got mine the 1st day it came out and I only had the option of the stock Blue. Do I paid 20 bucks for the Dbrand Skin. As much as people bash apple their cult like following will flip for these colors. And the 5s finger print scanner will be pretty bad ass if implemented right. I had an Atrix and the thing didn't work as great as I wanted so I just used pattern unlock. If you could Pay for items by just pressing the button that's innovation if you ask me. I'd never go back to iPhone cause I love Android but I'll give apple props when props are due.

Why do you need a plastic case on a plastic phone? That is one of the actual benefits of the 5c, you shouldn't have to put a case on it, unless you need a rugged phone for your job/hobbies.

Premium as in easy to shatter glass? Yeah because tanks are made of glass and Ios software.
