When any manufacturer releases a new handset, you also get a range of cases and other goodies becoming available as well. Many people when they buy an expensive new smartphone want to protect it with some sort of case or cover. When Apple announces their next generation of smartphone in a few months, what new iPhone 5 accessories can we expect to see?

The recent launch of the iPad 2 saw Apple bringing out a clever new design for the device with the Smart Cover. With this in mind will we see Apple do something similar with the iPhone 5? The new cover for the iPad 2 will probably sell by the bucket load, so Apple might want to cash in on the idea with the smartphone.

A good case or cover for a handset not only needs to protect it from life’s bumps and scrapes, but also to be practical. It’s no good having your handset protected by a case, but you can’t easily get to all the devices features.

Luckily many case manufacturers come up with clever designs which not only protect but can enhance the device. Bulk can also be an issue, if a cover is too big it can make a nice sleek handset look like a brick.

We will have to wait until June to see if Apple has anything special lined up for the new iPhone. Would you like to see something similar to the Smart Cover for the iPhone 5?
