iPhone 5C design leaked by case manufacturer, confirms September 20th shipping date

If one needed any more proof of the iPhone 5C’s existence, here’s some: case manufacturer CaseMate has actual renders of the device adorned with its glitzy cases on its website.

The company cites a sell-before date of September 20th at 8am, likely aligning with the availability of the phone in stores.

It’s unknown whether CaseMate is using its own renders (likely) or an official one (unlikely) for this mockup, but the delineated plastic volume buttons shown through the small side gap indicate that this is indeed different from the iPhone 5.


We’ll know more in the coming days — Apple is likely sending its invite for the September 10 event this week — but for now, enjoy the bedazzlement.
