iPhone cases come in all shapes, colours, sizes and smells. But how much protection do they offer your lovingly designed Apple device? Generally you can either choose a slim and stylish one that looks lovely but offers no protection; or you can choose a chunky and cumbersome one that makes your iPhone virtually bombproof, but looks like the compacted remains of a lorry.
The original Lifeproof was developed in secret military bunkers and space-laboratories to not only protect your mobile from drops, knocks and splashes; but to also enhance the functions of your iPhone. So you know that the Lifeproof for iPhone 5 is no mere re-badge; it’s an absolute upgrade for a new generation.
Fully protected. Fully functional.
Camera and flash
Protects that valuable touchscreen
Slimmer, sleeker, lighter, louder and stronger; the new iPhone 5 version features double AR-coated optical glass and a tough, barely visible, clear touchscreen film; providing full protection with no loss of functionality, not to mention the IP-68 rated case itself.
Creating a total seal around your iPhone 5, you can happily play Angry Birds or take care of business, whether from the bottom of the swimming pool, deep in the desert or struggling through a snowstorm. No matter what life throws at you.
