We all know that the iPhone shown on a few sites claiming to be the next generation iPhone is a real Apple prototype. Even Apple has confirmed it, though there really was no reason to believe that it wasn't. If case manufacturers don't get the dimensions of the new iPhone until about two weeks before its release, we won't see many cases (which is usually the case). Now that we all know what the next iPhone will look like, Apple really should send case manufacturers a mold and the dimensions of the next iPhone so we have a fairly wide selection of cases in a little over a month. Even if case manufacturers could at least get the exact dimensions, then we should see some leather cases/sleeves. Case manufacturers would need a mold to make a form-fitting case, but I would imagine a lot of people would pick up whatever is available. Personally, I would like a leather case for the next iPhone instead of a rubberized plastic form-fitting case like I have now since I really like the design. A company could see that their current leather flip case has similar dimensions for the new iPhone, but maybe not a great fit when removing the iPhone. Apple has nothing to lose if they give information about the next iPhone that case manufacturers need to make a great case since their secret is already out. Let case manufacturers get their new case designs into production.
