iPod Touch 5th 16gb Case

I

iMore Question

Does anyone know of a case for the ipod touch without the camera hole. I've spent many hours looking online for a case without a camera hole but they just don't seem to exist which is odd considering how popular the 16gb model is.

Because they want you to be able to leave thew case on while still able to take a pic. Is there is a reason you don't want a case with the camera cutout?

The 16 GB 5th gen iPod touch does not have a rear facing camera only a front facing camera. Only the 32/64 GB versions have the rear & front facing camera. The OP is basically looking for a case that doesn't have the camera cut out since the OP's 16 GB 5th gen iPod touch doesn't have a rear facing camera and as far as I know there isn't any that doesn't have a camera cutout.

Well based on the info given it's the only thing that makes sense logically to me. If the OP didn't post the storage size I would of been asking why as well.

That's interesting. I guess that's one way for Apple to cut costs/price.

I do think it's messed up that the 16 doesn't have the rear camera. It's the perfect entry level device and size for kids. That being said I think you are gonna have to go with one with camera cut out
