I ended up ordering an iPhone 5s (32 GB, Space Gray, AT&T, with dock) to replace my 4S (traded in to Amazon for $227.75 in gift cards, amazingly; other options here). I’m giving the cheaper AmazonBasics Lightning cable a try; it also comes in multiple lengths. Most of the time, I put the iPhone in my pocket without a case. However, for hiking, skiing, or just throwing it in a bag, I’ve long used a Timbuk2 ballistic nylon, velcro flap case with a belt loop. Alas, what seems to be the current version of this case, is ugly, and the two sizes are either too short or too wide for the iPhone 5/5s/5c. I’ve thus gone with WaterField Designs’ iPhone Smart Case, which has a detachable belt clip. I’ve been using their laptop SleeveCases for years, and they’re great.
