Can Your iPhone 5s Case fit the iPhone SE?



Now that Apple offers an attractively outfitted iPhone SE, users with a 4-inch iPhone are looking to upgrade. This leaves them asking, “Do iPhone 5 or iPhone 5s cases fit the iPhone SE?”

We are already hearing from some companies who confirmed that the iPhone 5 cases and iPhone 5s cases will fit the iPhone SE, but you will need to double check if you use a battery case or if you use a waterproof case.

The actual fit of some cases will vary depending on the design, but for the most part you should be able to use your old case.

LifeProof makes waterproof iPhone cases, including the LifeProof iPhone 5 and 5s case. The company currently offers an option to get notified when there is a new LifeProof iPhone SE case available. This may mean that the company needs to make changes, or simply that they are waiting to test the fit on the iPhone se.

Incipio offers a number of iPhone se case options for sale, which likely means that existing iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s cases will fit the iPhone SE.

OtterBox iPhone 5s Case - Defender Series

The OtterBox iPhone 5s case is updated to let users access the fingerprint sensor, kicking the rubber home button cover to the curb. OtterBox sent over their iPhone 5s Defender Series case which we've been using for a day now and so far it feels like another great OtterBox case.

The OtterBox iPhone 5s case comes in multiple color options, and OtterBox lets users pick an outer cover color and a hard plastic inner color. Users can also add a belt clip. All of the case options include a screen protector with a large home button cutout.

    Its kind of interesting to see if the iphone se is going to be a big hit or not. I think anyone looking for a nicer case should be using something made of real leather
