Do iPhone 5 cases fit the 5s?

Or do you have to get a specific iPhone 5s case..i have looked online at a few stores and also apple and it seems they say the cases will fit...is it an exact fit or am i best of waiting for the cases to catch up with the new phone and there be 5s specific cases?

They are interchangeable but keep in mind Touch ID when selecting a case. For example the new 5s Otterbox is designed with TouchID in mind, while the iPhone 5 Otterbox will physically fit the phone TouchID wouldn't work.

Yes but make sure it has a big camera cutout and does not cover the home button.

For the most part, just make sure there's enough room for the camera lens / flash
