    Default Lifeproof Fre and iphone 5s

    Darn it, just looking at picks for the new phone and it seems that the new flash will be a problem with the cut outs on the Fre case. I don't really feel like spending another $80 for a case

    I would think it would also be an issue with the fingerprint scanner. Sell it with your current phone.

    I don't know about the Fre because I don't have one but with the LifeProof Nuud both of the flashes fit in the same cutout. You can't use the touch id but I don't use it anyways. So you may still be able to use it.

    I'm curious to know if anyone has tried this yet? Can someone with a Fr case chime in?

    I have a frē case and I think that the flash and the home button will be your problems. The home button is flat now and now you have two flashes...

    I think we need to find someone with a Frē and a 5S that wouldn't mind guinea pigging this concept for the good of the group

    Lifeproof is working on a new case for the 5s. They certainly wouldn't be wasting time and money if the case was compatible. They did not change anything with the 4 to the 4s. I know it stinks cause the cases are so expensive. My only advise would be to sell it with the 5.
