Even the best kept iPhones need an iPhone case. Scratches and marks can happen through regular use. Pockets and purses can be dangerous places for an iPhone with keys, loose change, and other gadgetry lurking nearby. A good iPhone case will protect you on the day to day and keep those pesky keys away from you device.
But there is something even more fatal for iPhones than mere scratches: The Drop. The Drop can strike any iPhone at any time and is the leading cause of fatal injuries to iPhones. iPhones without iPhone cases suffering from The Drop may shatter unexpectedly. This can lead to iPhone separation which in turn may cause depression, anger, feelings of helplessness, increased fear of missing out, and a potentially negative consequences to your bank account.
We can personally report that an iPhone case can protect your iPhone in the event you drop it in the lobby while trying to answer a text and drink coffee, even if you end up kicking it further while attempting to catch it with your foot.
Don’t let a broken iPhone happen to you, get an iPhone case!

Don’t get caught up in the iPhone 5 hype and purchase a case that doesn’t fit! Most reports claim Apple will be releasing huge new upgrades with the iPhone 5, and that can mean case makers will have to do some retooling from any previous designs! This means almost all the cases and case designs leaked are fake or are generic teasers based off previous iPhone 5 rumors. Here are some classic iPhone 5 rumors from last year when everyone was sure Apple would release the iPhone 5.
