A large number of cases and accessories that are apparently destined for the iPhone 5 have started floating around and they come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Surprisingly enough these accessories are found on some pretty reputable websites and, given there heterogeneous nature, are unlikely to give any information about the upcoming and highly anticipated Apple device. We’ll start you off with the cracking picture above, from the website Lingosbox, which appears to show a number of boxes containing a dock for the ‘iPhone 5′. Someone is therefore going to be pretty pissed if it’s called ‘the new iPhone’. One would also hope that they’ve taken into account the rumored changes to the dock connector.
Next on the list is an iPhone 5 case sourced from Alibaba.com (pictured below). It’s described as a hard cover case for an ‘iPhone 5S’ and has a design that suggests it is fitted for a device with a a tapered rear panel, taking design influences from the iPad 2 and new iPad. This is of course consistent with many of the rumors surrounding the design of the iPhone 5, but it’s unlikely this supplier has anything to go on other than some variable hypotheses about the iPhone 5 design.
Next up is a case from Amazon.com, which is described as the iPhone 5 TPU Skin Case Cover. This one also comes with an accessories package including a MiniSuit Stand and screen cleaner keychain.
Finally, and perhaps the best, is another case for the iPhone 5 found on iGearUSA (pictured below). This beautiful red hard cover case is pictured on a device with an elongated Home button (which of course is so 2011), and a larger screen. Again, the tapered edges make an appearance, and if you are curious, then you can secure one for the bargain price of $15.
Go on, indulge your curiosity.
