Anyone want an iPhone 5 case? A bunch of manufacturers are currently taking orders and shipping nearly every style from cheap silicon sleeves to hard shell Hello Kitty cases. All of them feature a design taller than that of the iPhone 4S and most of them make room for a smaller dock connector.
As the next iPhone approaches, Apple will start handing out specs to trusted accessory makers. That could have already happened. After all, this move is a standard operating procedure to ensure the phone launches with strong accessory support. But these cases are now available for purchase as long as buyers are willing to order them in bulk.
