Thankfully, many iPhone accessory manufacturers have already announced their new designs, and we’ve rounded up the early iPhone 5 cases here, and will add more as they cross the wire. Plenty here to get you started, though.

Thanks to the anti-shatter film, excessive impacts may cause the glass to crack, but it will not shatter and so is safer to use than other glass products.
