Complete Collection of Iconic iPhone 5 Cases Available from OtterBox

FORT COLLINS, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Described as a “jewel-like device” by Apple® Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, Philip Schiller, the iPhone® 5 has once again set a precedent for innovation and style. To protect this precious investment, the name responsible for the best-selling smartphone cases* now delivers protection for the iconic device. Available today, OtterBox® has a complete collection of iPhone 5 cases.

“With impressively advanced technology and brand-new features, there is a lot to protect with the iPhone 5,” OtterBox President and CEO Brian Thomas said. “As a leader in the industry, OtterBox is among the first to provide trusted protection. To answer different customer needs, we have several case options -- all of which live up to our standard of premium protection.”

Defender Series®: Rugged protection, made for adventure. A popular OtterBox staple, the Defender Series is built for demanding lifestyles, heavy use and random accidents. This case consists of a built-in screen protector, strong polycarbonate shell and shock absorbing silicone outer layer. Silicone plugs keep dust and dirt out of all ports when not in use. A holster-style swivel belt clip that doubles as a media viewing stand is included. This multi-layered case protects from catastrophe.**

Commuter Series®: Stylish protection, made for action. This pocket-friendly case is designed for ultimate adaptability whether in the office or out with friends. Sturdy, two layer protection consists of a silicone mid-layer and thin, durable polycarbonate shell. Silicone plugs keep dirt and dust out while the self-adhering screen film keeps the Retina™ display free of scratches.***

Reflex Series™: Agile protection, made for versatility. The Reflex Series offers resilient protection in a slim and lightweight design for on-the-go use. The two-piece slider design enables quick assembly and removal and is great for docking with third-party accessories. Reflex zones in the case corners absorb shock to prevent damage to the device during impact. This case features a self-adhering screen film.***

Prefix Series®: Effortless protection, made for simplicity. The Prefix Series consists of a dual-material, unibody construction that delivers a soft-touch feel with the inner strength necessary to keep the iPhone 5 safe from damage. An impact-resistant silicone exterior dissipates shock, while the inner polycarbonate backbone provides structural strength. Silicone pads inside the case cushion the device and an adhesive screen protector defends from potential damage.***
