    Likely the existing iPhone 5 cases/screen savers will fit the soon to be released iPhone 5S? Or will there be another entire line of cases for 5S??

    No one can really give you a qualified answer, yet.

    Odds are, the iPhone 5S cases will be compatible with iPhone 5 cases and vice versa. There'll be a line of 5S cases only for the marketing, I would think. There are two things that wouldn't make this the case (pun not intended :p):

    The home button w/ the rumoured fingerprint scanner may cause some issues for iPhone 5 screen protectors and cases with lay-on-the-table design (doubtful about the latter, though).

    A second issue with iPhone 5 cases is whether the camera cutout will fit the dual LED that's rumoured to in the 5S. Then again, I think current cutouts are large enough.

    The dual LED is one that I question.

    It may also come with a mic in a different location and that could cause a problem.

    Any case that covers the home button is a potential issue or just loss of function.

    Apple may be laughing at us for even thinking it's a fingerprint scanner.

    based on the leaks, i think the iphone 5 cases will easily fit the iphone 5s.

    the S models usually copy all of the basic things from their predecessors and the leaks also indicate that both phones have same dimensions. so there a high probability that the 5S will support the iphone 5 cases.

    Only thing is that for the new rumored flash, some cases might need a revised edition.
