Owners of the new iPhone 5C and 5S will be able to buy color cases from Apple.

The iPhone maker announced today that it will sell a lineup of "color reveal" cases to blend with the colors of the iPhone 5C and 5S.

Made of silicon with a microfiber lining, the 5C cases have cutouts in the lower half so that much of the phone's body still shines through. You can choose a color that matches your 5C or combine colors to mix it up. Six different cases will available for the 5C and will cost $29 a piece.

iPhone 5S owners also will get a choice of six solid color cases, but they will be made of leather and cost $39 each.
