Incipio Atlas ID Review

It’s safe to say that the iPhone 5 and 5S closely match one another when it comes to their designs. However, if you somehow ended up purchasing a waterproof case for the iPhone 5 and expected it to play nicely with your brand new iPhone 5S, you’ll be sadly mistaken to know that it more than likely won’t allow you to use that fancy new Touch ID finger print sensor. Well, don’t fret because the Incipio Atlas ID is coming to the rescue, seeing that it offers full functionality for the Touch ID sensor.

Frankly, there’s no arguing about the case’s intentions just by looking at its design. Our particular review unit, one that’s all black, sports an aggressive design that matches its impervious nature. Specifically, it features Military Standard 810G to protect it from dust, drops, vibration, and immersion. Furthermore, its IP68 rating ensures that it’ll survive being submerged under 2 meters of water for up to 30 minutes.

It’s a two piece case, where the front panel is removed by using a coin, preferably over a fingernail, which is held together by the latch on the bottom of the case. Naturally, there’s a rugged element attached to its overall construction, which is attributed to its tough plextonium polycarbonate and supportive TPU materials. In the event of drops, its fall is cushioned thanks in part to the absorbent silicone all around the case.


  • Enabled for Touch ID usage
