Pre-ordered iPhone 5c cases begin arriving

5c case 2

Alongside the all-new iPhone 5c, Apple unveiled six new colorful cases for the handset last week. The company has taken some heat over their radical design, but it believes they’ll provide customers with an easy way to customize their devices.

Made from silicon, with 35 small holes punched in the back, the accessory went on sale right next to the iPhone 5c pre-orders last Friday. And although the phone itself won’t start hitting doorsteps until Friday, some have already received their cases…

Our very own Jim Gresham received his blue iPhone 5c case this afternoon, and has supplied us with a number of up-close photos. He also notes that the case feels great, inside and out, and it has more of a satin-feel instead of “limp and rubbery.”

Jim will be back this weekend with a full review of the case once he’s paired it with his iPhone 5c. In the meantime, if you’d like to pick one up for yourself, you can find them on Apple’s website in black, white, pink, yellow, blue and green for $29.

So, what do you think of Apple’s 5c case?

    Probably one of the ugliest things I’ve laid eyes on, other than my ex girlfriend.

      LMFAO!

    • Rob_Huska

      What’s strange is she used to be your girlfriend… So either that says something about your taste in women, or she was in a horrible, disfiguring accident since your break up. ;-)

  • Markus Hudobnik

    Am I the only one that likes them? :/

      No you’re not. I like them too. I will be able to tell for sure once I get one in my hands. Until then, I will refrain from making a quick judgement.

        I like them too.

        The only thing that i hate is the “iPhone” word back the iphone, which is being hidden

      • Rafael Castillo

        I like them, but dust will inevitably sneak in and scratch the unapologetic plastic.

      • Dan

        actually you can’t still see hon. Something like that would of never passed with Jobs at the helm.

      • mehrab

    • Rachel

  • Apanizo2

    Those won’t last long

  • chumawumba

    Now you have a “hon”

  • illK†Δ

    Why is everyone judging a product that we haven’t even seen in action??? It’s a case, not a stand alone product. I’ll have my opinion once I see it on a 5C

  • mav3rick

    $29 a silicon cover? They should’ve included this with the 5c for its price.

  • Glorin

    BUILD QUALITY = BRILLIANT / Holes = not a fan of / I DON’T NEED A CASE ANYWAY

    • omrishtam

      you know that there will be other cases too right?

  • Joseph A. Ahmad

    They would be nicer without the holes in my opinion.

  • J™

    those cases look horrible

  • omrishtam

    i’d give up on the holes on the back…..ewwww 0_0
