Now that you have an iPhone 5 of your very own, you want to protect it as best you can so you do not have to take it for any costly repairs. The iPhone 5 flip case features a cover that flips open when the phone is in use and flips closed to keep the screen covered when the phone is not in use, making it a great solution for protecting both the body of the phone and the screen. Many cell phone accessory manufacturers produce iPhone 5 flip case models, so you have a variety of colors, styles, and materials from which to choose. There are magnetic iPhone 5 flip cases as well as versions with stylish snaps that hold the case together. There are also styles that have built-in slots for credit cards and identification, so your iPhone case could take the place of your wallet or purse. You can find a range of styles, from sophisticated to cute iPhone 5 flip cases on eBay.
