LifeProof Cases Take your iPhone along, wherever life may take you. The LifeProof iPhone case delivers the highest level of waterproof, shock-proof, dirt-proof protection in an incredibly low profile – a mere 1.5mm increase to each edge! Your LifeProof™ everyday case for iPhone 4 or 4S is sleek, refined, convenient and unobtrusive. To give you confidence to go everywhere with your LifeProof iPhone, iPod and iPad we water test each and every case we make. Not only that, after the test an independent agent performs additional testing and even puts randomly selected cases through a second water test. We never ship a case unless it has been successfully tested.
