Lifeproof has released its popular waterproof case for the iPhone 5S, tweaking the case's design so you can use the fingerprint sensor. In the new version, a thin, translucent membrane covers the home button, keeping water and grime out while allowing your fingerprint to still be read (in my tests I indeed managed to unlock the phone with my finger).
iPhone 5/5S users can choose between the Fre (pictured here -- $79.99) and the Nuud ($89.99), which leaves the screen exposed but still keeps water and dust out of your phone. The Nuud has a translucent back while the Fre has a window in back to show off the Apple logo.
The Fre is available in many colors but the Nuud is only available in black and white.
See more info and pricing for the Lifeproof Fre and Nuud cases.
