In this week's iPhone-case roundup, we bring you the modern, the classic, the streamlined, and a hanger on.

The Week in iPhone Cases

As the holidays approach, there’s no shortage of great new cases for your iPhone. In this week’s roundup, you’ll find everything from streamlined modern designs to protection from unwanted radiation—with a hanger on thrown in for good measure.


The Every1 (iPhone 5; $50) features four different layers of protection, including a built-in screen protector, a special air cushion that enhances the case’s resistance to shock, reinforced corners, and an exterior material that enhances your grip on the phone.

The Every1, which also comes with a built-in kickstand, is available in purple/pink, aqua/blue, green/blue, grey/black, white/black, grey/pink, or grey/aqua.


The Rosy Cheek (iPhone 5; $89) is a pink bumper for your iPhone 5 made from aviation-grade aluminium.

The case is built using a precision CNC milling process and features a patented toolless design, an anodized protective finish, and holes for a wrist or neck strap.


The Skinny Jacket (iPhone 5; $15) is a snap-on hardshell cover that keeps the back of your iPhone safe from dents and scratches.

At just 0.5 millimeters, it’s one of the thinnest cases on the market, and it comes in clear, black, or wine red.


The iHangy (iPhone 5; $30) is a case that protects every side of your handset from scratches, bumps, and cracks. It features a dual-layer construction, with soft silicone on the inside and rubber-coated hard plastic on the outside.

As its name suggests, the iHangy also comes with a number of attachments that allow it to safely hang from your neck, from your wrist, or from a keychain.


The HyperGrip (iPhone 5; $30) is made from ultra-durable silicone contoured to provide an excellent grip and to prevent your iPhone from slipping through your fingers.

The HyperGrip is available in black, purple, green, red, or white. It comes with a complimentary screen protector, a microfiber cloth, and even a foldable video stand.

According to its manufacturer, the Classic Soft Touch Case (iPhone 5; $60) is scientifically engineered to help boost your iPhone’s signal strength by up to twenty percent while blocking harmful radiation by up to 91 percent.

Naturally, the case also offers excellent protection, as well as a beautiful soft-touch finish that is available in black, red, grey, purple, or green.


The Cube Cover (iPhone 5; $35) features a dual-layer construction that combines an energy-absorbent silicone material with a durable, impact-resistant external polycarbonate shell that, together, protect your iPhone from all kinds of bumps and falls.

The Cube is not just about protection, though: It also features a great design, inspired by the rounded corners that have made Apple products so iconic. It comes in red, black, purple, or white.

The Linear Metal Crystal (iPhone 5; $28) is a polycarbonate shell made of three different pieces: An upper frame, a lower frame, and a back plate. Each piece is interchangeable, which means you can create your very own case design by combining parts from different cases—in fact, to get you started, the company includes a free gold-colored lower frame in every box.

To complement the package, the case comes with a screen protector and cleaning cloth.


The Bonds (iPhone 5; $30) is made from a rugged TPU material to deliver superior protection in a wide range of uses. The case features a metal frame that provides an excellent grip while making it easy for your handset to slide in and out of your pocket.

The Bonds comes in two shades of black, white, green, or purple, and features use-through volume and Sleep/Wake-switch inserts to keep dirt away while offering tactile feedback.
