After we heard about the iPhone event next week the Apple rumors went into overdrive, and we now see more than ever, although it seems to be real news and solid rumors leaking now we’re just a few days away from the “Let’s Talk iPhone” event.
We already saw AT&T staff following Sprint with both carriers wanting employees working overtime on certain dates, always a good hint as to when new products are launching, in this case an iPhone 5 release date. More of a speculative rumor was a story about iPhone 5 cases spreading around China extremely fast because of an apparent lost prototype from Foxconn, although we’d say to take this rumor with a pinch of salt.
Today we have something that looks almost certain, thanks to this article, which shows a leaked image of AT&Ts inventory system and a list of Apple iPhone 5 Case-Mate products. These include apparent cases in Purple/Black, Blue/Gray, White/Gray, and in Black. There seems to be three types that include iPhone 5 hard cases, soft case and a skin.
The majority of rumors point towards cases with more rounded edges like you’ll find on the iPad 2, these sound pretty smart and will give the iPhone 5 a little more style, so fingers crossed.
What do you want to see at the Apple press event next Tuesday? And when shopping for a case do you always buy a certain brand, if so let us know your favorite in the comments?
Update: We are now hearing that third-party iPhone 5 silicone sleeves are appearing in AT&T stores.
