    During today's iPhone media event, Apple announced new cases to go with both the iPhone 5c and the iPhone 5s, along with docks for both phones.

    The form-fitting silicone iPhone 5c Case comes with cutout dots to show the color of the iPhone 5c beneath the case. It is available in black, white, blue, green, yellow, and Pink.

    The colors match the iPhone polycarbonate shell of the iPhone 5c, and in a video shown during the presentation, it appears that Apple intends for different colored cases to be mixed with iPhone 5c shells to create unique, colorful looks. The iPhone 5c cases are priced at $29.

    The case designed for the iPhone 5S is made from premium leather rather than silicone, and comes in a range of colors including brown, beige, black, yellow, blue, and (PRODUCT) RED.

    According to Apple, the leather is shaped to cover the volume buttons, the on/off switch and protect the chamfered edges of the iPhone 5s. The inside of the case contains a soft microfiber, and the dye has been infused into the leather. The iPhone 5s cases are priced at $39.

    Alongside the cases for the iPhone 5c and the iPhone 5s, Apple has also debuted a dock for each of the phones. The iPhone 5c dock and the iPhone 5s dock both look like standard docks that Apple has used in the past, with the exception of the Lightning adapter. Both docks are available for $29.

    Finally, Apple has debuted a new 2-meter Lightning to USB cable, which is priced at $29. The docks and the Lightning cable will be available in Apple Retail Stores beginning on September 12, while the cases for the iPhone 5c and the iPhone 5s can be purchased beginning on September 20.

    They really should've done something so that the "iPhone" weren't all choppy underneath the 5c case.

    Those leather cases are very nice, but I told myself I wouldn't use a case on my 5S. Hmm, what to do?!

    Great! So the back of your phone says 'hon' all the time. That is helpful!

    Seriously, those 5C covers are hideous.

    I don't have a teenage daughter but something tells me those cases will be popular with that demographic.

    Think I'll buy one of the leather cases for my 5.
    Too bad the 5 is as scuffed now as it is.

    I really don't like all the holes on the back of the silicon cases. A solid version would have looked better and have collected less dirt, imho.

    The iPhone 5C reminds me of a Palm Pixi, in a good way.

    I noticed the same. What were they thinking? It might be the work of a summer intern. That is not really Apple at all. Shame on you Apple!!!! Shame on you Tim Cook!!!!:mad:

    design oversight?

    I really hope for those looking to pick up an iPhone 5C with one of these bumpers that the text on the back of the phone doesn't show through the open circles like in the image above, 'cause that's nasty!

    Amazing oversight!!!! It looks like a college intern did this as a summer project and someone decided to launch it. Disgusting!!!!

    It clearly says on Apple's website that it's compatible with the original iPhone 5.

    holes, lint and "hon" oh my!

    Seriously? 35 holes to capture pocket lint etc? And how could they possibly not notice that the letters are partially cut off. They have some incredible minute attention to detail and then they let this happen?

    I cannot believe Mr. Ive let this one through. Cheap case from China yes, Apple no!

    Me too. But will the dock work with the leather cover - or will we have to remove it?

    Original iPhone PVC cable vs iPhone 4 vs iPhone 4S vs iPhone 5 cable.. totally disappointing at 8 months they turn yellow at 10 months they start to show the inner cable..

    At least on the online store, the cable is available now. The dock however is showing a september 20 order date.

    That's always the burning question, but considering all the previous generations of Apple docks released, then I would say no, it won't work with the leather case, or any case for that matter.

    It's the same situation I had with my 4/4S. I was always annoyed with using the Apple bumper and the dock, because they never worked together.

    Currently I have SGP full body protection on my iPhone 5, which would be fine for the dock, but I am still considering whether I want to get the leather case and go through the hassle of putting on and removing the case every time I want to dock it.

    What do you do to those cables? I still have my first charger plus cable from the original iPhone from 2007. Still white. Still not damaged! Am I just lucky? Also I like how this old cable is way more flexible than the one that came with my New iPad. Are the new one still this "stiff"?
