During today’s 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 cases are priced at $29.

The case designed for the iPhone 5S is made from premium leather rather than silicone, and comes in a range of colors including brown, beige, black, yellow, blue, and (PRODUCT) RED.

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 cases are priced at $39.

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. Both docks are available for $29.

They really should've done something so that the "iPhone" weren't all choppy underneath the 5c case.

Great! So the back of your phone says 'hon' all the time. That is helpful!

Seriously, those 5C covers are hideous.

Original iPhone PVC cable vs iPhone 4 vs iPhone 4S vs iPhone 5 cable.. totally disappointing at 8 months they turn yellow at 10 months they start to show the inner cable..
What do you do to those cables? I still have my first charger plus cable from the original iPhone from 2007. Still white. Still not damaged! Am I just lucky? Also I like how this old cable is way more flexible than the one that came with my New iPad. Are the new one still this "stiff"?

I don't know what you are doing to your cables, but it looks like it's been soaked in some acidic cat piss.

Like others here have said already, mine are pristine, white, and undamaged after 12 months usage.

No issues here with quality of the cables. Actually, I think I'll be picking up a 0.5m cable for the car, and a 2m one for my bedside table.
