Due to a slightly button configuration on Apple's newest iPhone model, the 4S, many new owners likely need to buy new protective cases. As holiday season gift-giving extravaganza approaches, it's easy to buy a simple black bumper for the phone, but it's not as fashionable or fun as an iPhone case could be. The iPhone is simple in design, so finding and buying a case is a rare chance for users to inject their iPhones with a little personality.
There are multitudes of iPhone cases out there with clever and creative designs, but these 10 iPhone 4 and 4S cases take the cake.
