Apple iPhone 5 users can now add style to their prized gadget besides protecting it with cases claimed to be world's thinnest and lightest.

Mobile phones accessories brand, iSkin, has unveiled a new case for iPhone 5 called 'slims'. It is available in camouflage, wood, and chevron and can be purchased for $34.99 (approximately ₹1916.93 approximately).

The width of iSkin's slims is just 0.4 mm, making it the thinnest case available for iPhone 5. It is a re-applicable double sided adhesion and delivers puncture and scratch resistant surface protection.

"The slims redefines ultra-thin protection with complete 360 degree rear and front protection and an integrated ultra-clear screen shield. The case is easy to install and remove providing durable and reusable protection. This amazingly thin case personalizes and protects the iPhone 5 with zero bulk," said a statement from iSkin.

"Despite its ultra thin design, the slims 'hard plastic recipe' resists scratches and prevents damage to the iPhone 5. An integrated anti-glare, bubble-free Retina display screen protector keeps the device safe and sound from scratches while remaining touch sensitive and clear for optimal use."

Apple iPhone 5, one of the world's best-selling smartphones, is now reportedly with slashed prices in India.

An e-retailer is offering the 16GB version of iPhone 5 for ₹43,999, though the price written on the box is ₹45,500. Prices of iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S have also been slashed.

Sources from Apple India said that the Cupertino giant has nothing to do with the price cut.
