    A pair of photos posted to Chinese microblogging site Sina Weibo and shared by HDBlog.it [Google Translate] show what is alleged to be packaging for an official Apple case marketed for the iPhone 5S but which would also fit the iPhone 5. Text on a paper insert within the packaging indicates that the case is at least partially constructed of aniline-dyed leather, similar to Apple's Smart Covers for the iPad and iPad mini.

    As the report notes, the informational text included on the paper insert is similar to that seen on other Apple accessories, and the "iPhone 5S Case" name printed on the plastic packaging matches the styling seen on an alleged leaked box for the device itself.

    One questionable aspect of the paper insert is the use of a lowercase "s" in "iPhone 5s", as Apple has traditionally used a capital "S" when printing the names of its "S-model" iPhones in plain text. The packaging itself also appears to be rather large considering Apple's usual standard of minimal packaging for its products.

    Apple is expected to unveil both the iPhone 5S and a lower-cost iPhone 5C at a media event beginning in just a few hours.

    Interesting! I'd love to see more cases from Apple. Although I've told myself I won't put my 5S in a case and just enjoy its beauty. :D

    If you're not making as much of a profit on your devices, sell accessories.

    Huh, lowercase "s" that is unusual. Could be a misprint..

    I thought Apple didn't like to put devices inside cases?

    Oh well... another excuse to charge £40 for a 'premium' accessory.

    IMO the s should be lower case, but that is just my opinion.

    Curious to see if this is true, and how well those cases hold up. I have had mixed results with Apple's official protective products in the past.

    If anyone with a hand like that worked into my workplace, they'd be told to get out and fix it up. That is just plain disgusting.

    I would say fake, purely based on lowercase 's'

    A smart-cover like solution for the iPhone would be really neat. :)

    Probably so it won't look like 5S or 55.
