What Are They Going To Name The iPhone 6?

One of the things we like to pass around the office are our best ideas for names for the new iPhone 6. Like most people we’re pretty sure that Apple will ditching the iPhone 5 for iPhone 6. That much is fairly obvious from their past naming styles. But with iPhone 6 rumors swirling all over, and most rumors pointing to two different sizes of iPhone 6, what are they going to name these new models?

Apple’s Classic Naming Style – iPhone 6S

As one of the largest companies in the world Apple doesn’t like to rock the boat with their branding. They typically go with a letter after the number and they usually like to repeat ones they previously used. That means we’re most likely to be seeing cases for a new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S in the future. Apple has used the “S” twice before and with two models of new iPhones it could provide an easy way to tell them apart.

New World Apple – iPhone 6C

Always one to replay a successful act Apple may go for the same divide between the iPhone 6 devices that they used with the iPhone 5. Namely that means one of the devices, likely the smaller of the two rumored sizes, will be the iPhone 6C while the other device may be just the iPhone 6 or become the iPhone 6S. The C hasn’t been as great of a seller for Apple as they might have hoped so they may be trying to reclaim some lost magic from previous versions and skip the idea of the iPhone 6C entirely.

Crossover Appeal – iPhone Nano & iPhone Pro

Never thought you’d see the phrase iPhone Nano? What about iPhone 6 Nano? Well you just might! If you haven’t gotten the drift already we think Apple will reuse something they used before and that might be a naming convention from a previous device. The two most popular Apple devices that have had additional versioning in their name have been the iPod Nano and the Macbook Pro. There’s an outside shot Apple tries to tie in a little crossover naming appeal by going with the iPhone 6 Pro, the larger one, and the iPhone 6 Nano, the now “smaller” size of iPhone

Crazy Ideas

There have been a lot of… unusual… rumors being throw about for some ideas for names so we though we’d get them out there. The most popular of the crazy ideas is the iPhone 6X or iPhone 6L. We’re definitely not 100% behind but we though we should throw it out there just because we all know Apple is known for being so eXtreme. Some of the other ones have been the iPhone Tiny, iPhone Giant, and the iPhone OS. We’re not convinced on any of those crazy ones but we’ll keep you posted when we know more

iPhone 6 – Is It Real This Time? Early Rumors of the New IPhone Size

It is everyone’s favorite time of the year again: new iPhone rumor time! This year we’re definitely anticipating a new iPhone to hit the market and it will likely be called iPhone 6. Apple has no history of repeating previous versions with more identifiers, (like the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C) and most of the rumors seem to suggest that Apple will be releasing not only a ton of new upgrades but even two different versions of the iPhone 6.

Wait, Two iPhone 6s?

Will they be named iPhone 6S and iPhone 6C? We’re guessing so. But outside of naming what’s the current difference? In this case its mostly screen size. Bloomberg has reported this year that Apple is looking to develop a 4.7 inch screen and a 5.5 inch version. The 5.5 inch version, iPhone 6L or iPhone 6S, will be comparable in size to some of the Samsung models.

You can be sure as soon as the iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6C, or whatever they’re calling it is released Case Monkey will have the your iPhone 6 cases ready.

New Samsung Galaxy S5 Case Designs

Brand New Custom Phone Cases Just Released, including Color and Leather

We are proud to announce the release of 15 new custom phone cases available to customize and purchase online. The new cases provide a choice of various colors, types, and protection. Previous custom phone cases were either black or white, and ranged from a thinner, customizable snap on case to a silicon lined, more protective tough case.

Colors

The iPhone 4/4S Thinshield case, which features a one piece hard shell material with a matte finish, is now offered in black, blue, pink, red and white. The case can be customized with any images and text, but will now have the specific color options around the sides of the case for additional personalization.

Types

In addition to the Thinshield, Snap-on, and Tough cases, we are now offering a slider custom phone case. The slider case is 2 pieces and slides shut from the top and bottom. Originally just offered for the iPhone 3G/3GS, the slider case is now available for the iPhone 5/5S (in black or red), as well as the iPhone 4/4S case in black only.

Thinshield for Samsung Galaxy S3

A new addition to our Samsung custom case collection is now available on the site as well. The Thinshield case, originally only offered for Apple products, is now customizable for the Samsung Galaxy S3. The Thinshield custom phone case is a favorite as it provides slightly more protection than the snap on cases and features a matte finish instead of a glossy finish.

Wallet Case

One of the most unique cases released on the site is the iPhone 5/5S Full Design Wallet Folio case. This case is made of faux leather with a glossy hard shell inner case. The phone’s camera hole remains available to use while this wallet case is secure on a phone.

Guardian Case – Extra Protection

A major concern for iPhone owners is the amount of protection a case offers. Case-Monkey has released a collection of Guardian cases which includes a tough but flexible interior with a hard outside shell. This custom case is ideal to provide protection but not add too much bulk.

From colors to protection, we are happy to offer you brand new custom cases for your iPhone, iPad, Galaxy, and more.

Valentine’s day is just around the corner, and it’s time to start thinking of that perfect gift for that special someone! The best gifts are the ones that mean a lot – the gift giver thought about it, chose something specifically for the recipient, and made it specifically for them.

A custom made gift is even better – the gift giver took the time to think of the gift, made it ahead of time, and personalized it specifically for the recipient. Custom iPhone, Custom iPad, and Custom Galaxy cases are the perfect gift for that special someone.

Case-Monkey Cases – What’s the Difference?

We get asked frequently what the difference is between all of the cases that we offer. Case-Monkey.com is a phone and table hub that connects you with multiple brands of iPhone cases, Galaxy cases, iPad cases, and more. We sample and test out all new cases that we offer on our website. Some are glossy, some are more protective, some print edge to edge, etc. Sometimes it is hard to see the differences online, so we have explained them in more detail below.

thinshield-case

Thinshield Cases

Our Coveroo Thinshield Snap-On cases are different than most of our cases in that they have a matte finish instead of a glossy finish like most of our other cases. The Thinshield case is one piece and snaps onto the back of the phone. The main difference about the design of these cases is that the image prints on the flat back side of the case only. The sides around the case are black. The Thinshield case is slightly thicker than our standard Snap on cases. These cases take between 6-11 days to process and ship.

glossy-case

Snap On Cases

A majority of our cases are the Case-Monkey brand Snap On cases. These cases feature a shiny, high gloss finish. They are slightly thinner than the Thinshield cases. One major different between these cases and the Thinshield case is that the Snap On cases print from edge to edge, including the sides. Text does not always print well on the sides, but your image can be extended from edge to edge with text on the flat part of the case. Most of these cases are $24.95 and ship within 24-48 hours.

We offer a second Snap On case for the iPhone 5 made by Frydaze. These cases are very similar to the Case-Monkey brand Snap On Case but have an oval shaped hole for the camera space instead of the more square shaped hole. They are glossy and have a similar thickness.

tough-case

Tough Cases

Our last type of case is the Tough case. These cases have a similar glossy shell like the Snap On case, but the Tough case includes an inner silicon lining for extra protection. This lining borders the front of the phone the absorbs shock if the case is dropped. The case is still slim but offers another level of extra protection.

Apple Announces the new iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, and new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C cases!

Earlier today Apple made a huge announcement and told the world they’ll be releasing the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C in the next few weeks. These two new iPhones from Apple are both huge leaps forward in pricing and hardware and the specs Apple released earlier today proves that they’ve still got it. The rollout of the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C will happen fairly quickly so expect to see these phones on the street soon; Apple even removed the old iPhone 5 link on their website in favor of new pages for the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C.

The big news for us here at Case Monkey for the iPhone 5S was not just the new processor but rather that our current iPhone 5 cases are fully compatible with the iPhone 5S! If you are planning on designing your own iPhone 5S case then you can choose any one of our many iPhone 5 cases and it will fit your iPhone 5S perfectly. The new metallic casing for the iPhone 5S is definitely going to need some protection from scratches. If you look at your current iPhone 5 you can image what those scratches and marks would look like on a gold case. Yikes. One of the most interesting parts of this big iPhone 5S announcement was the pricing and options for Apple’s cases. We definitely appreciate a great iPhone case here at Case Monkey which is why we’re happy to offer high quality iPhone 5S cases cheaper than Apple. Here are some links to a few of our iPhone 5S cases in “case” you want to make one for your new iPhone 5S:

iPhone 5S Kickstand Case
iPhone 5S Snap On Case
iPhone 5S Tough Case
iPhone 5S Thinshield

The debut of the iPhone 5C was a big winner here at the office. New colors, reduced pricing, and a small head nod to the customization and personalization with the new iPhone 5C cases. We’re excited for the $99 price point and can’t wait to get our hands on the plastic casing used by Apple. If previous plastic casings are any indicator the iPhone 5C will definitely require an exterior iPhone 5C case because of heavy scratching during normal wear and tear. Unfortunately Apple did change the specs on the iPhone 5C from the specs on the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S so we will have to go back to the drawing board and work hard to get new custom iPhone 5C cases available. We’re looking forward to seeing what you make when you design your own iPhone 5C case. Of course we’ll keep you posted on any updates and will do a full release of our custom iPhone 5C cases when they are available.

What an exciting day!

Get Ready to Design Your Own iPhone 5S Case: Latest iPhone Revealed This Fall

The tech blog affiliated with the Wall Street Journal, AllThingsD, has reported that Apple will be unveiling the latest iPhone on September 10th, 2013.   Just as Apple is prepping for this so called “release date”, we are over here prepping for whatever new phone they announce so you will be able to design your own iPhone 5S case.  Apple has yet to make any of their own announcements about this release date, but AllThingsD has been fairly accurate in releasing reports about inside Apple information in the past.  If Apple continues with their usual pattern releasing the iPhone 5 on September 2012 and the iPhone 4S on October 2011, then they should be right on track to releasing their newest iPhone this fall.

New Phone or Enhanced Version

It is possible that the new release could be called the iPhone 6, but it is more likely to be the iPhone 5S.  It has been speculated that this new product will maintain the same design as the current iPhone 5, but with some general upgrades.  It is believed that this new product will be more of the same metal, plastic, and glass material that makes up all the older versions of the iPhone.  As great as the new phone may be, it sounds like it’s still going to need the same protection.  Luckily we will make it just as easy to design your own iPhone 5S case as with any of our other cases. Some of the differences that the iPhone 5S are likely to have will be a faster processor, an extended battery life, and an improved camera with a dual LED flash.  The biggest difference that the iPhone 5S will have, that the iPhone 5 does not have, is rumored to be a fingerprint sensor to unlock the phone.

This new model will run with the latest iOS 7, which Apple announced would be released in the Fall 2013. This operating system will include new typography, a new color palette, and re-designed icons. Other smart-phones entering the market against Apple, such as the Samsung Galaxy, has put a bit of a dent in the iPhone sales so hopefully the iPhone 5S will meet the many expectations of consumers.

Start to Design Your Own iPhone 5S Case

Just as with the other top phone brands, we will be getting cases ready for whatever new product Apple has to offer.  We want you to be able to protect your phone as soon as you get it.  With only one month away, you may want to start  to design your own iPhone 5S case.
