During yesterdays iPhone media event, Apple announced new cases to go with both the iPhone 5c and the iPhone 5s, along with docks for both phones.
The form-fitting silicone iPhone 5c Case comes with cutout dots to show the color of the iPhone 5c beneath the case. It is available in black, white, blue, green, yellow, and Pink.
The colors match the iPhone polycarbonate shell of the iPhone 5c, and in a video shown during the presentation, it appears that Apple intends for different colored cases to be mixed with iPhone 5c shells to create unique, colorful looks.
The iPhone 5c case should sell for about R300 in South Africa.
The case designed for the iPhone 5S is made from premium leather rather than silicone, and comes in a range of colours including brown, beige, black, yellow, blue.
According to Apple, the leather is shaped to cover the volume buttons, the on/off switch and protect the chamfered edges of the iPhone 5s. The inside of the case contains a soft microfiber, and the dye has been infused into the leather.
The iPhone 5s case should sell for about R500 in South Africa.
Alongside the cases for the iPhone 5c and the iPhone 5s, Apple has also debuted a dock for each of the phones. The iPhone 5c dock and the iPhone 5s dock both look like standard docks that Apple has used in the past, with the exception of the Lightning adapter. The iPhone 5s dock will be compatible with the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 5c dock will only work with the iPhone 5c.
Both docks should sell for about R300 in South Africa.
