    Will the case for my 5s work on the 5se? Will they be around the same size?

    It is impossible to know until this phone is released.

    Probably not. Most speculation is the screen will be rounded more like the 6 and 6s. The back might also have the same design. I guess only time will tell as we all wait for the announcement

    Welcome to iMore! From what I've read from the rumor mill it's doubtful that the 5se (which is a rumored device itself) will bare much resemblance to the 5s aside from a 4" screen. That being said, you'll most likely have to purchase a new case but we won't know for sure until the device is officially announced.

    When the rumor first came to light, they all said that this 5se would look like a 5S with 6 or 6S internals, or something like that. Lately, I've been reading that it will look more like the newer generations of iPhone and may even have a protruding camera as well. At the very least, a strong rumor is that the glass will be curved, even if in a 5S-like casing....in turn, highly unlikely old cases would work with the rumored device, if we even see the device. It is just rumor at this point afterall.

    I would say it is very unlikely. If you visit the vrs design website (formerly Verus cases) and shop for cases, there is a separate 5se section (albeit empty at the moment). There is also an ipad air 3 section

    Due to the fact that Mark Gurman of 9to5mac recently still said that it will nearly look identical to a 5s I think yes. In his article he also claims that the existing cases will fit the new 4inch phone. I think it is realistic because otherwise it would take a few months until new and good cases will be available.

    Mark Gurman is always right and has a stellar track record. He even predicted the new MacBook last year in detail. So I still trust him the most when it comes to his articles.

    So, I'd say YES the cases will fit. I even got myself a great 5s case and hope I don't have to send it back after the 21st

    there's a new video online (source macrumors) that shows the 5s fits 99% into the case for the SE - so it seems to be as Mark Gurman from 9to5mac mentioned: the new device should fit the old 5/5s cases! Which is good news in my opinion...

    I think it's safe to say it will look like this mockup (but with the power button on top!) : https://www.behance.net/gallery/3404...ne-5se-Concept

    Will really be interesting to see if this still holds up now that the phone has been revealed since there was some awesome phone accessories for the 5s

    Having briefly looked at cases on the Apple website for iPhone SE, it seems that cases used on the 5 and 5S can be used on the SE.

    The 5/5s cases work with the SE. It is the "same" device besides the modern internals and the matte edged!
    If you filter on Apple's website, all the 5/5s cases are recommended for the SE, too.

    Due to the fact that case makers thought it would look different, a lot of great 5/5s cases are on sale!

    I will go on a limb and say you would be able to, since it's the same form factor, but we'll see.
