Add a little personality oomph to your iPhone 5 without the extra pocket bulk of a case; opt instead for something thin-skinned. If concerns that the phone's aluminum back cover is easily scratched, skins by GelaSkins will keep your gadget looking as fresh as the day you unboxed it, while also letting that geek flag fly high. Plus — each skin has a matching digital wallpaper to keep your iPhone fully accessorized. Check out our skins of choice in the galley.
DODOcase's handmade bookbindery-as-gadget case has made its gear stand out in a sea of accessories, so for their latest trick its natural San Francisco-based company is working on a new craft: sewing. The new line is Durables, a collection of hand-sewn sleeves for the iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 5, iPad, and MacBook Air.
The entire line has an army green waxed duck canvas exterior, an orange felt interior, and leather trim ready to get that sweet patina look over time. With two pockets the iPhone Wallet ($50) holds cash and cards, the iPad 2/3 Sleeve ($65) has room for a Smart Cover, and the MacBook Air Sleeve ($80) is available for both the 11-inch and 13-inch models. Get inspired to return to your sewing machine by taking a closer look at the DODOcase hand stitches in the gallery.
We've had a sneaking suspicion that the iPhone 5 will come with a thinner and wider body, thanks to all the rumors that have surfaced over the past few months. If these images from Case-Mate are any indication, our suspicions might be spot-on.
iPhone accessory manufacturer Case-Mate posted images of its iPhone 5 case lineup on its website this morning, showing off what the iPhone 5's body might look like. The cases have a very iPad-like back, a slimmer profile, and rounded edges, which takes a step away from the flat-paneled body that came with the iPhone 4.
Check out all of the designs (that are already priced from $15-$40) and links to their product pages in the gallery.
