You know every time you get a new phone, it’s time for a new case. With each new upgrade, Apple makes the iPhone better but you can usually depend on a physical change as well. That’s what happened with the debut of the iPhone 5 this year. They changed the shape of the phone just enough that all your iPhone 3 and 4 cases weren’t going to work with the fancy new 5.
Good thing my favorite iPhone case company is on top of things. As if they were working hand in hand with Apple, they launched their LifeProof fre case for the iPhone 5 soon after Apple debuted the new phone. It’s the same great waterproof, dirt proof, snow proof and shock proof case we’ve all come to love but this one perfectly fits the new shape of the iPhone 5.
The case looks almost identical to the LifeProof iPhone 4/4S case, but of course, it is a little longer, a little skinnier, has the headphone jack at the bottom and a smaller door for the plug. In fact, it is their lightest, thinnest case ever! Other than that, it is the same great quality case that protects your iPhone from…well…life! LifeProof protects your phone when your toddler drops it in the toilet, throws it down the stairs or accidentally takes it in the sand box with them.
We tested this case with our friend’s iPhone 5 for a few days since we haven’t had a chance to upgrade to the iPhone 5 yet! We are happy to report that it works just as great as the original. We are talking we swam with the phone and case underwater! Woot! Woot!
The Fre case comes in 10 fun colors and retails for $79.99. To purchase LifeProof products, visit the LifeProof web site at http://www.lifeproof.com/. LifeProof products are also available at a variety of retailers, including Best Buy, Target, AT&T, Verizon, and more.
