Apple reportedly to sell iPhone 5 cases later this month

iPhone 5 owners looking for cases at their local Apple store may finally see some in the next couple of weeks.

Apple -approved third-party cases could reach store shelves the week of October 22, multiple sources reportedly told 9to5Mac. Though that timeframe could change, the cases should at least appear by the end of October.

The iPhone 5 hit stores almost three weeks ago, but Apple has been slow in stocking cases, screen covers, and other accessories.

Why the delay? Apple has to certify and aprove every product sold in its stores, including those from third parties. And that process can be a lengthy one.

A salesman at my local Apple store told me last week that he expects cases to arrive within the next two or three weeks. He also explained Apple ‘s need to ensure that every product sold in its stores meets a certain standard and level of quality.
