Apple helpfully provides you with some paperwork (instructions, legal, stickers, etc.) all wrapped up in a neat little cardboard insert. But did you know that your new iPhone 5 fits perfectly into the insert as well, making for a free case included in your purchase? While it might not save your phone from major accidents, it's a free and easy readily available carrying case right out of the box!
Free Screen Protector
Before you go ripping into your new iPhone 5 and tearing off all of the packaging, note that the front and back of the phone are already protected by a thin sheet of plastic. While you can't just leave that plastic directly on the phone, you can modify it to work as a nice free screen and body protector (front and back). The plastic protective cover extends completely from the top of the phone to the bottom, with little tear pulls on the end. Simply fold back and chop off the parts covering the home button and speaker on the front as well as the camera and flash on the back. Voila, easy screen protector out of the box!
