Yes, your iPhone 5s and 5 cases will fit the new iPhone SE!
The iPhone 5s industrial design was one many people enjoyed and some still hold onto today — including large collections of cases and other accessories. That means the big question on a lot of iPhone 5s and iPhone 5 owners' minds is whether or not all those cases will fit on the brand new iPhone SE. In a word...
Older cases are indeed going to fit the new phone, so you won't have to ditch your favorite one when upgrading. If you've got a favorite ultra slim, protective, wallet, battery charger, or other case you've been using, you'll be able to keep right on using it.
Of course, there will be a lot of new cases launching for iPhone SE (opens in new tab) as well, and that means if you've been thinking about changing up your look, now's also a great time to do just that.
Apple will be selling its official leather case in both black and blue (opens in new tab), and all the other manufacturers, major and minor, will no doubt have new colors and styles available soon.
We'll be taking a look at some of the best ones in the near future, so if you have or see any we should know about — or you want to know more about — tell me in the comments!

Jared started off writing about mobile phones back when BlackBerry ruled the market, and Windows Mobile was kinda cool. Now, with a family, mortgage and other responsibilities he has no choice but to look for the best deals, and he's here to share them with you.
Yess this is amazing considering that I just bought cases for my 5s!
Best Qi charging case? I know Apple always likes to take their time with a new technology, but this is getting ridiculous.
This is actually great news. Not just for SE owners but for us 5s owners as well since we can also use the new SE cases that will be released.
Check clearance bins as well! Lots of good 5s finds there!
Good to hear that. I still have 4-5 cases of my old iPhone 5s.
Case makers are so soooooo happy. Sent from the iMore App
Yes they will because it's an iPhone 5. Dugh Sent from the iMore App
I am happy to report that my waterproof iPhone5 case fits my brand new SE perfectly. The snack-size ziplock bag is still the cheapest, thinnest and bestest case around. Yay!
