iPhone 5 Cases & Covers

The iPhone consistently generates immense excitement whenever a new model debuts. The iPhone 5 presents some radical changes to the device by comparison to previous incarnations. The smartphone features a taller, thinner body, a larger screen, a smaller connection port and the headphone jack has been moved to the bottom. This means consumers won't be able to fit their new iPhone in the same case as their old phone.

There are two types of iPhone 5 cases to choose from - hard shells and soft body gloves. Both protect the device and help prevent any bumps and bruises from an accidental fall. Solid cases are slightly heavier than gel ones, but you may want the extra weight so your iPhone doesn't feel so fragile. You should pick the iPhone 5 cover that feels the most comfortable and unobtrusive when using your phone. Enclosures are available in almost every color as well, so your phone can look as good as it works.

Gym-goers may want to buy an armband for extra security during a workout. It could be easy for an iPhone to slide out of your pocket while on the bench, and not even the best case could save it from being stepped on. Joggers may find it annoying to have their arms tangled with their headphones' wire extending all the way down to their pocket, but an armband could help avoid unwanted fuss during that last mile.

The iPhone's new 4-inch screen has a gorgeous display, so it's important to protect the glass from any damage. A screen protector is a wise investment for all smartphone users who want to avoid small scratches all over their devices.

Shoppers are undoubtedly excited about picking up the new iPhone, but should buy the right iPhone 5 accessories to keep the device immaculate.
