We all know what happened when that iPhone 4 prototype got left in a Silicon Valley bar. A journalist’s house got raided, two guys got a year of probation, and an Apple employee ended up with a lot of ’splainin’ to do. The whole situation could have been avoided if Apple had used Kensington’s BungeeAir case.
I know, the iPad is coming out in just a few days. What am I doing reviewing iPhone cases? Well, I'm pretty sure that while you're waiting for your new Apple tablet, you're probably reading this article from your iPhone. And, you need to protect it if it falls. Let's take a look at the BodyGuardz MyKase, the company's new line of protective cases for the iPhone 4 and 4S.
There's nothing I like more than a pretty case...that sounded girly. What I really mean to say is that if the case makes the iPhone look bulky and bland, I'm not going to sport it. UNIEA's unique line of iPhone 4S cases are gorgeous and a work of art themselves--a perfectly pretty companion for your even-prettier phone.
This week, I'm reviewing the Cygnett Icon Art Series case for the iPhone 4S. These fashionable cases are aesthetically pleasing and smooth to the touch, and they do so without adding any bulk to your iPhone. Read on to find out more.
Remember how Best Case Scenario was a bi-weekly thing? One of those twice-monthly columns that lumped in a bunch of stuff together, making it difficult for you to really pick out the review you wanted of an iPhone or iPad case? Those days are long gone. We're going with a brand new, weekly format so you can easily keep track of the latest cases and decide if it's worth spending your hard earned cash on.
This week, I'm reviewing this very stylish, but not very functionable, Retro Camera Case from Freshfiber. It's a quirky way to dress up your iPhone and give it some of the same mechanical functions as an old school camera, but it's really not too practical when it comes to actually protecting your iPhone. Read on.
Because what would CES be without rows and rows of iPhone and iPad cases? If you're the type to swap out cases as quickly as you change outfits, click through the gallery for a glance at some of the cooler cases featured at this year's Consumer Electronics Show. Some cases are utilitarian and protect your iPhone from harm, while others are just there for the sake of being bedazzled. Either way, here's a glimpse at the heaping of options you're bound to see in the new year. Happy shopping!
This week, we take a look back at the very best of 2011. Whether you're looking for a gift for someone with an iOS device, or even a MacBook, we've got you covered. Read on for 2011's best case scenarios.
Few things are as handy as an iPhone battery case—binder clips, Swiss Army knives, and the iPhone itself. But most iPhone battery cases add bulk, and don’t always have juice when you need it most. Third Rail takes a novel approach by keeping the case and battery separate. Your iPhone stays in a sleek, attractive Slim Case that adds practically no bulk at all, just a centimeter or so at the bottom. Flip it over and you’ll see a contact strip of three gold rails—that’s where you’ll snap on the 1.4-ounce, 1250mAh Smart Battery. Micro-USB in and out ports let you charge the battery from a computer or USB power adapter and juice up other gadgets that charge via USB. If you want extra power, you can buy additional Smart Batteries for $59.99 each, and when they all run dry you can stack them on the Slim Case to charge everything up at once.
Whether you waited in line or at home for the UPS delivery person, the last thing you want to do is sour that wait time by dropping your brand new iPhone 4S to its death. Okay, fine, that was kind of dramatic. But it is still made out of glass and prone to scratches and cracks. Protect it with a case from this week's Best Case Scenario.
I’ve been looking for a functional wallet/iPhone case hybrid for years.

At first glance, the BookBook by Twelve South seemed like the answer to my prayers. However, after using it for a month straight, I really wish I’d prayed just a little bit harder.
