OtterBox today sent out a press release announcing a new series of cases for iPhone 5s, 5c, and 5 models with waterproof protection along with full Touch ID support.
The company claims the cases are fully submergible to 6.6 feet for 30 minutes, and protects against drops up to 6.6 feet.
"About 70 percent of the Earth’s surface is covered in water, and technology is almost as pervasive," said OtterBox CEO Brian Thomas. "We take our smartphones with us everywhere, and OtterBox is dedicated to making these activities as worry-free as possible. The Preserver Series is dependable, seriously waterproof protection that you can trust."
The two-piece case snaps together for easy installation. It boasts a solid plastic frame lined with device-cradling foam and overmolded bumpers to absorb and deflect shock away from the device inside. The built-in screen protector guards the vibrant display from scratches without inhibiting touch sensitivity.
The Preserver Series for iPhone 5s and 5c will be available soon for $89.95. Notification sign-ups are available from OtterBox's website.
Preserver Series cases for the iPhone 5 are currently shipping in four colors for $89.95, but they do not include Touch ID support.
