Apple recently celebrated the 20th anniversary of the iMac G3, and to mark the occasion, Spigen has created a line of fun cases for the iPhone X that have been designed in homage to the candy-colored iMacs that restored Apple's reputation and revenue streams while also establishing the company as a force to be reckoned with.

Spigen's new Classic C1 cases are available in a selection of shades designed to match the original colors of the first iMacs, like Bondi Blue, Ruby, Sage, and Graphite. Spigen is launching its new case lineup via an Indiegogo project with prices starting as low as $18.

Spigen sent MacRumors its Classic C1 case lineup ahead of the launch of the Indiegogo project, and we can confirm that these combine the protection Spigen is known for with a whimsical interpretation of classic Apple designs.

Each Classic C1 case actually consists of three components. There's an inner silver shell that's made of a soft, flexible material that fits right onto the iPhone. It features iMac-style chip and battery designs, with a cutout that lets the Apple logo of the iPhone shine through.

The inner shell pairs with a two-piece outer shell that's made of a translucent plastic, which snaps right onto the iPhone. Because it's see through, the outer shell allows the design of the inner shell to peek out, giving the case a 3D iMac-style look that's quite attractive and a must have for fans of classic iMac designs.

Spigen paid quite a bit of attention to detail with these cases, and there are even detailed iMac-like design elements included in the inside of the case.

Because this is a multi-layer case, it's thicker than some of the cases that Spigen offers, but it provides an attractive iMac design that pairs with solid protection. The softer inner component paired with the hard plastic exterior will keep the iPhone safe from mild drops, scratches, and other damage.

The inner silver case provides a nice lip around the display for protection when it's face down, and the bottom offers protection while still leaving ports accessible. The case also covers the volume and side buttons with the exception of the mute switch, but it does not impede button usage.

Spigen is also offering another case based on a classic design -- the original iPhone. Available alongside a C1 case, the Classic One offers a simple silver and black design that turns the iPhone X into something resembling the first iPhone. This case is simpler than the C1 with just a single layer and no intricate design elements, but it will be ideal for those who want a sleek design.

Super early bird Indiegogo backers can order a Classic C1 case for just $18, and when those are gone, prices will go up to $22 and then $25. If Spigen gets enough orders, additional colors will be unlocked, including Grape and Blueberry.

Spigen plans to begin shipping out the Classic C1 cases to backers in June.

Update: Spigen's Indiegogo campaign raised more than $100,000 from backers, and as a result, and due to demand, Spigen is now going to make its Classic C1 iMac cases available for the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus.

I think the classic one / 2G one looks ugly with that inside, (even tho just an inside, looks trash) and the exposed cut out. Even if no apple logo but covered, and an off font iPhnoe at the bottom near the antenna bottom would’ve made it a lot better

At least the c1 has a smooth seamless protected back i like the cut out cause it makes it look actually g3-ish. I love the hello interior too. And the battery and stuff looks cool To me personally

In for a Bondi Blue :D



Cool video of it too

Spigen is a great case company in General i always buy a few of theirs over the years
Nice unboxing video!

But isn’t it pronounced bond-dye instead of bondy?

I thought Bondi blue was based on the famous Bondi beach here in Sydney? I’m from Australia haha
