The Week in iPhone Cases: Three and counting

The release of a new Apple handset is always followed by a flood of new cases, and with two brand-new iPhones on the way, this time around we've got twice as many new-case announcements to sift through. Here's our third roundup of iPhone cases this week...and we suspect things won't settle down for a while.

Three and counting

The release of a new Apple handset is always followed by a flood of new cases, and with two brand-new iPhones on the way, this time around we've got twice as many new-case announcements to sift through. Here's our third roundup of iPhone cases this week...and we suspect things won't settle down for a while.

Belkin

The Outrigger (iPhone 5c; $30) features a durable, semi-flexible body, with reinforced interior edges for maximum protection that even extends to your handset’s buttons.

The wraparound frame of this case, which comes in slate or lavender with topaz accents, is designed to help keep your screen safe during a fall

Griffin Technology

The Doxie Separates (iPhone 5 and 5s; $30) combines a polycarbonate backplate with a TPU frame for extra protection at the edges and in the corners.

Available in many different designs, with individual components that can be mix-and-matched to fit your taste, the case also sports custom-molded button covers and a raised rim that keeps your screen safe.

The Joy Factory

The Cameron (iPhone 5c; $18) is designed to offer simple-but-effective protection from the hazards of everyday smartphone use by wrapping your handset in a transparent shell made of a special material that offers an excellent grip.

The case sports all the appropriate cutouts to give you access to the iPhone’s ports, buttons, and cameras, and a special lip on the front keeps your handset’s screen safe in case of a fall.

Luvvitt

The Hybrid Slim (iPhone 5c; $20) combines a scratch-resistant, antislip backing with a soft, silicone inner lining for a sure grip and excellent protection from the little accidents that make everyday life oh-so-interesting.

The case, which is transparent with orange accents, sports beveled edges that help keep dust out of your phone.

Moshi

The iGlaze Remix (iPhone 5c; $30) combines a pliable material with a proprietary hard coating to form a case that offers excellent protection without adding significant bulk to your iPhone.

The case comes in pink, white, yellow, red, blue, or black.

Orée Design

The Wireless Power Sleeve (iPhone 5 and 5s; €90) is made from premium natural wood and genuine leather for a great look and feel that protects both the front and back of your phone.

The case, which comes in either maple or walnut with natural or blue leather, also offers wireless battery charging in conjunction with the company’s Power Pebble and other compatible accessories.

Scosche

The VaultKase P5 (iPhone 5 and 5s; $45) combines a hard-plastic exterior with a soft-rubber exterior to help absorb shock and protect your phone from bumps and scratches.

The case, available in black or white, also features a built-in kickstand for propping up your phone to view its screen in landscape orientation; there’s also a hidden compartment with enough room for three credit or ID cards and some cash.

Zagg

The Live Wire (iPhone 5c; $20) is made from durable, double-molded polycarbonate for long-lasting protection from falls and bumps.

The case comes in black, pink, grey, or white, and it sports special bumps in its neon accent that help prevent scratches when the phone is lying flat.
