At this point, I think we're all familiar with the infamous iPhone 5c case. It's not a horrible case, but it sports an odd Crocs-style design that has gained a lot of negative attention. Apparently, Apple was working on a similar case for the iPhone 5s as well, but fortunately, that never happened. According to Michael Andrew from The Michael Report (via 9toMac), the photo below shows what is claimed to be a prototype Crocs-style case for iPhone 5s. Michael Andrew explains his findings:
There are, however, two crucial differences between the iPhone 5C version of the case that was meant for the iPhone 5/5S and the actual, official iPhone 5C case that was released to the public:Obviously, there's no way to tell if this prototype is official, but it still gives us a look at what such a case would offer the iPhone 5s. I'm sure some people would appreciate this case, but it's definitely not for me. At the same time, I wouldn't surprise if Apple had released this case to give iPhone 5s owners another overpriced method of protection. What do you think about the iPhone 5c case?[gallery link="file"]
- Instead of the seven-by-five grid of holes that is on the back of the released iPhone 5C case, the case for the iPhone 5/5S sports a subtly different six-by-five grid of holes.
- Unlike on the iPhone 5C case, the top and bottom of the iPhone 5/5S is not protected by the silicon case.
