Though Apple has since moved on to the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6s, the iPhone 5s remains a solid smartphone that should appeal to those who want a smaller device. You get a still-speedy 64-bit A7 CPU with motion coprocessor, Touch ID fingerprint sensor, and an improved camera with a larger image sensor and aperture, dual LED flash, and burst shooting capability.
The design of the phone itself, however, remains largely unchanged from the slick aluminum iPhone 5. The screen, body dimensions, and overall look are pretty much the same.
If you forgo the iPhone 6 and are upgrading from an iPhone 5 to a 5s, your case should work with your new phone without issue as long as it doesn't cover the Home button (if you want to use Touch ID), and has a large-enough camera cut-out to accommodate the additional LED flash (most do). But if you're still carrying an iPhone 4s, there's a whole new world of cases available to add flair, personality, and most importantly, protection to your new iPhone.
We've done our best to round up the coolest iPhone 5s cases we've seen. Our selections span from inexpensive, unassuming transparent plastic cases that simply increase durability, to hand-carved wood cases that add a feeling of luxury to an already-luxurious phone.
We see new cases all the time (so we update this story often), but for now, here are our top picks for cases for your new iPhone 5s. And if you still have an iPhone 5, these will work too.
