Apple announced four different iPhone models during its October 13 web event, but only two of them can be purchased this month: iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro. Pre-orders have already started for the two smartphones, and you can have one in your hands already on October 23, if you are lucky. To keep your shiny new iPhone protected from scratches and cracks, try one of these cases.
The market is flooded with thousands of different phone cases from hundreds of brands, but there are not many yet for the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro. However, there is enough for you to choose comfortably. Depending on what you want from your case ̵1; durability, purity, protection or fashion – you should find at least one in the list below that meets what you are looking for.
Option 1: Apple’s silicone case with MagSafe
Apple’s cases are usually pretty solid choices. While I usually prefer its leather types, Apple’s silicone case with MagSafe is finally a good alternative thanks to the built – in magnets that hold the case firmly on the iPhone 12 or 12 Pro. And it works perfectly with MagSafe chargers, as all Apple MagSafe accessories would do. From Apple: “The silky, soft finish on the silicone surface feels good in your hand. And on the inside, there is a soft microfiber lining for even more protection.”
Option 2: Apple’s Clear Case with MagSafe
If you want to show off your iPhone’s own color, Apple’s Clear Case with MagSafe is for you. From Apple: “Made with a blend of optically clear polycarbonate and flexible materials, the case fits just above the buttons for easy use. On the surface, a scratch-resistant coating has been applied to both the interior and exterior. And all materials and coatings are optimized to prevent yellowing over time. “
Pair Apple’s cases, or even some of them below, with their MagSafe leather wallet ($ 59), which comes in four different colors: Black, Baltic Blue, Saddle Brown and California Poppy. It’s not a case but attaches to the back of your iPhone 12 or 12 Pro with or without a case thanks to MagSafe. With your wallet, you can access IDs, credit cards, insurance cards and other items that you may need quick access to.
Option 3: Caseology Nano Pop silicone case
Caseology creates some of the most popular yet affordable and fashionable smartphone cases – and it has done the same for the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro. The flexible Nano Pop model is available in four colors, each with a complimenting accent color on the camera bump: Apple Red (beige), Blueberry Navy (dark yellow), Prune Charcoal (aqua) and Peach Pink (light yellow).
Of course, you also get the protection you want thanks to “patented airspace technology” that helps prevent cracks and fractures if (and when) you drop it. The thin case can also be easily connected to a screen protector and it is compatible with wireless charging. They also look pretty cool.
Option 4: Then Clear Case
The Clear Case is not your transparent smartphone case. Clear cases often go hand in hand with very little protection, but this crystal clear case has protection of military quality thanks to a hard composite back and air-protected corners that can absorb shocks with the best of them.
The case is also as thin as they come and adds a minimum of 0.15 inches depth to your iPhone while still protecting your camera with raised edges around the lenses. And if you’re concerned about the cleanliness of your cases, the specially treated back helps fingerprints, oil and other stains to ruin the clean look.
Option 5: Then shockproof bumper X-Series case
If you like the transparent case but want something more protective, Temdans Shockproof Bumper X-Series case is a good bet. It gives you the clear back to show off the color of your iPhone but also protects it with more robust features that many other cases may not come with.
To begin with, the case comes with a built-in screen protector that prevents scratches and cracks but still allows you to use the screen without problems. It also has a military standard, shock-absorbing thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) – a bridge between rubber and plastic – for the shock absorbers to protect your iPhone from falls and other types of damage. It has raised the edges around the case to protect your camera lenses and the screen itself from scratches when you place your iPhone face down. Finally, wireless chargers work well.
Option 6: ESR Cloud Series silicone case
When you are looking for a case, you sometimes want simplicity. An inexpensive case with moderate protection and minimal bulging is the way to go, and that’s what the ESR Cloud Series silicone case for iPhone 12 and 12 Pro offers.
The thin lightweight case has a soft texture and a matte surface that is easy to grip and take out of your pocket or bag, but it still has a raised frame to protect the camera and screen. Although it is so thin, the case offers good protection without being bulky, and the soft edges also make it easy to put on and take off the case. In addition, there is a “velvet” lining inside to prevent your iPhone from being scratched and it works perfectly with wireless chargers.
This specific model is available in three colors: black, orange and navy blue.
Option 7: ESR Premium genuine leather case
If you want something simple but also luxurious and you are willing to spend a little more, the ESR Premium Real Leather Case can give your brand new smartphone a more advanced look. The black leather is exposed to natural variations, so each case is unique and it feels good in your hand, just as you would expect from a leather case. It is also thin and light and has raised frames to protect your screen and camera from scratches.
On the inside, the leather case is lined with microfiber so that your phone is not scratched even when it is in the case. Like the other cases on this collection, it works with wireless chargers.
Option 8: ANLCQC transparent shockproof protective cover
If you are looking for something nice and minimal, this case is not for you. The drop-tested ANLCQC Translucent Shockproof Protective Case in military quality is perfect for people outdoors who are prone to dropping their smartphone.
Four built-in rubber airbags can absorb more shocks than other cases, and the raised frame (1.3 mm) protects the screen and camera from scratches or cracks on surfaces. The transparent matte hard polycarbonate backing (PC) has a honeycomb design and a non-slip rubber frame that makes it easier to grip and harder to drop. Even with all this protection, the case keeps a relatively narrow appearance and also works with wireless charging.
Option 9: Encased Phantom Wallet Case
A case is not always just a case, and it is case with the case Encased Phantom Wallet. In addition to protecting your iPhone with a durable design with double layers, shockproof frame and rigid PC cover, it also has a card slot on the back, where you can fit up to four debit cards, credit card, ID, etc. .
The bag has a raised screen lip for better protection, and it also covers the buttons on the side while they are easy to press. Even with the wallet, the case maintains an elegant and narrow appearance while the surface has a matte surface so that it is easy to grip.
Option 10: Spigen Tough Armor Case
Protecting your iPhone usually costs a bulky or even ugly case. The Spigen Tough Armor case for iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro comes with the features you would expect from a protection-first case but with the look of a sleek and thin one.
This case comes with foam technology that provides an extra layer of shock absorption, and it pairs it with TPU and polycarbonate for protection against drops, along with raised lips that help prevent the screen and camera from being scratched. It also comes with a kickstand on the back so you can support your iPhone when you want to watch something on Netflix and other video streaming apps. And even with all this, it still manages to look good and work with wireless chargers.
Option 11: Cordking silicone case
The new iPhone 12 comes in five different colors and the iPhone 12 Pro in four, but there are many more colors in the world than that. If you want more options, try one of Cordking’s silicone cases, which come in yellow, dark yellow, black, dark black, clove purple, light purple, dark blue, navy blue, midnight green and pine green.
Apart from all the cool colors, you also get raised lips for screen and camera protection, silicone materials that are easy to clean, wireless charging and MagSafe support and lifetime-free replacements for your cases.
Option 12: Nillkin CamShield Pro case with camera protection
Your screen getting scratched is almost inevitable, and usually it is not a cause for great concern as you can continue to use it without any problems. But when your camera lenses get scratched, your photos and videos may look less perfect. The Nillkin CamShield Pro Series case looks great to protect your camera lenses, as opposed to other smartphone cases, by providing a sliding camera cover.
All you do is slide the lid over the camera when you are not using the camera and the 0.22 millimeter lifting frame protects your system. As many cases on this list, CamShield Pro supports wireless charging, so you do not need to remove your iPhone when you want to charge it.
Option 13: ESR Metal Kickstand Case
Your case may not need a kickstand, but it’s probably better with one. The ESR Metal Kickstand case has a unique kickstand that can be adjusted up to 60 degrees, so you can not only set up your iPhone horizontally – but also vertically. If the phone is on the side, it’s good to watch videos, but if you’ve on FaceTime or want to send texts or browse Safari without holding your iPhone, it’s great to have the ability to have it upright. The stand retains over 80% of its strength, even after over 3000 uses (according to the company), so you know you can get good use of the case.
