The absolute best cases for the iPhone 13

Every new iPhone needs a brand new case to match!

While the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 have practically identical dimensions, the newer model is .25mm thicker and has a slightly wider camera configuration — meaning you’re going to have to upgrade your case along with your phone.

Apple Silicone Case

The silicone case is the bare minimum protection-wise, but it’s simple and clean. Apple’s basic case comes in eight different colors that’ll either complement or contrast with your phone.

Apple Leather Case

For a little more flair and style, Apple’s finished leather case is soft and will change with age like any other leather product. The five color options are unique to this style, too.

What’s the point of picking out the perfect iPhone 13 color for you only to cover up your favorite look with a case? If you’re a big fan of whichever iPhone style you choose, go with the clear case to let its natural beauty shine!

Spigen Slim Armor Case

This case combines style and simplicity for a minimalist classic-black case. It’s super slim but is designed with dual-layer defense and what Spigen calls “Air Cushion Technology” — in other words, it’ll keep your phone safe.

Spigen Geo 360 Case

This case is inspired by off-road vehicles and is built with more heavy-duty protection in mind. If you’re the kind of person who goes through a few phones a year, this is your savior.

Nomad Modern Leather Case

For a more sophisticated look, this case is made from vegetable tanned Horween leather. It isn’t all show though — it’s still got 10-foot drop protection and an internal shock absorption bumper.

Who has time to reach for their wallet when there’s so much to do on the iPhone 13? Keep you phone protected and your cards and ID within easy reach with this stylish wallet-case.

Casely iPhone 13 Case

Let’s face it, most phone cases look boring. Casely offers cases that are as protective as other brands but they have so many more design options. I’m partial to this potted plant design from illustrator Frankie Penwill, but there are plenty of designs to choose from.
