Images purportedly showing the packaging for Apple's official iPhone 5S leather case have surfaced online. As you can see from the packaging (pictured above and below), the official case is said to be manufactured from aniline-dyed leather, much like Apple's Smart Covers for the iPad and iPad mini. Furthermore, the words "iPhone 5S Case" are printed on the packaging in white. However, one aspect of the purported packaging has aroused suspicions. Namely, the text printed on the back of the case highlights that the accessory is compatible with the "iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s." Apple, in the past, has always used a capital letter "S" when referring to its mid-term smartphone upgrades. Apple's media event is set to begin at 10 a.m. PDT.
