Some customers who ordered the forthcoming iPhone 5c and one of the new color cases to go with it are receiving the covers already, ahead of the iPhone 5c shipping. Apple's $29 silicone cases for the iPhone 5c come in a total of six possible color options to mix and match among the five color choices for the iPhone 5c itself. Critics have pointed out that the design of the holes on the back side of the cases allow letters and partial wording on the back of the iPhone to be seen, but the overall effect of the holes showcases the color of the phone.

Like the iPhone 5c itself, pre-orders have been plentiful. While no pre-order figures are yet available, the cases have already slipped to a 1-2 week lead time on pre-orders, at least for the US.

The silicone exterior, in a flat matte finish to contrast the high glossiness of the iPhone 5c's back, is lined with a microfiber interior to prevent scratching, and covers the sleep/wake and volume buttons, providing further protection. Early reports say the case is lighter than expected, with the holes also helping to keep the weight down.

Despite the imperfection of the holes revealing bits of the iPhone's rear labelling, the case and its holes create a polka-dot effect that should be well-received by the iPhone 5c's younger and more fashion-conscious demographic. The case is available in black as well as the iPhone 5c's five color options: white, green, blue, yellow and pink. Apple's marketing for the cases emphasizes the effect of contrasting the case and phone color to create a coordinated effect.
