The 5S fits just fine. You can't use the fingerprint scanner but the camera LEDs just make the round hole that's there already. That was my concern. Just thought i would share

Yup, found that out when I put the 5s in the Lifeproof. I haven't made up my mind If I'm going to use the fingerprint scanner. If so, it's going to require a new case or modification of the existing one.

Good to know, thanks.
So, regarding the flash the only issue would be not being able to use the true tone flash ?

Good to know. Won't be optimal for the new camera, but at least usable. The Touch ID feature isn't critical to me, but having the full performance from the camera kinda is. Now I'll have to debate floating the $80 for a LP case now and then buying the the 5S revised case when it ships, or just waiting it out. Seriously though, thank you for this useful post!

AT&T has lifeproofs for 40 with free shipping. I got a red one on the way for my wife for the 5 I just handed down to her.
