New iPhone 5 Cases Hint At Major Redesign

Even though we’re about three months away from Apple’s next iPhone launch, case manufacturers are already cranking out accessories based on earlier leaks.¬†We found this “iPhone 5” case for sale on TVC-Mall (via 9to5 Mac and Cydia Blog). The cases cost $1.58 each, but you can buy them in bulk for a little less.

As with previous leaks, it looks like the next iPhone will have a slightly larger screen and a smaller dock connector on the bottom. But as we learned last year, just because case manufacturers start cranking out new designs, doesn’t mean Apple will follow through.

Take a look at the gallery below for a good idea what the next iPhone will (probably) look like.

You can see the new dock connector and speaker outlines here.

It looks like the dock connector will be a lot smaller than the standard iPhone/iPod connector Apple has been using for years.

The company is selling the case in a variety of colours

Here's a blue version. It also looks like the headphone jack will be on the bottom.
