First iPhone 5 case announced

iPhone 5 case confirms larger size before Apple's launch

Sculpteo has announced and shown off its iPhone 5 case before Apple has even announced the latest generation smartphone.

The image above shows the iPhone 5 case in blue next to the older iPhone 4/4S case in red to show the size and layout difference. It confirms rumours that the iPhone 5 would be bigger because of a larger screen. See below for a full 3D render of the case alongside the previous generation.

But before you get too excited Sculpteo sent the following statement along with the announcement:

"Due to the fact that it will be possible to order the cases before the layout of the iPhone 5 is publicly released, each design will be instantly adapted according to the precise iPhone 5 layout." See also How to watch Apple's iPhone 5 launch live.

"If there is any radical changes in the shape customers will be informed immediately before their iPhone case is printed and delivered. Each customer is guaranteed to receive an iPhone 5 case which will fit their phone perfectly." Take a look at iPhone 5 release date, specs and rumour round-up too.

Keen Apple customers will be able to order their iPhone 5 case from this afternoon, European time before the launch event starts. Sculpteo has described it as the 'First Ever Customizable iPhone 5 case'.

"As part of the launch of 3DPCase by Sculpteo, we will be releasing the first customizable 3D printed iPhone 5 Case on 12 September before the official Apple announcement" said the firm.

The 3DPcase app will allow customers to create a customised app in preparation for the iPhone 5's imminent launch. See also: iPhone 5 launch: everything you need to know.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
