Around this time yearly, my workplace is shortly overrun by instances. I’m at present surrounded by greater than 60 instances round me. Many of them are completely advantageous! They simply do not actually stand out, or they’ve one quirk I do not actually like. That’s what you may discover under. You may like them greater than I do.
(*15*): These tie-dye telephone instances are tremendous rad. The buttons click on properly, and the MagSecure connection is robust. They’re slightly slippery, however the edges across the display are raised properly sufficient to guard it.
Mous Limitless 5.0 MagSafe Case for $60: Mous has just a few totally different textures you may select from. The aramid I’ve is kind of boring, however I’d advocate snagging the walnut or bamboo if you need a wooden case. The case itself is properly constructed with a mix of polycarbonate, thermoplastic urethane, and thermoplastic elastomer. The edges across the display are raised, the MagSecure connection is robust, and the buttons work properly. I did discover the perimeters a bit slippery.
Spigen Tough Armor MagFit ($25): The chunky Tough Armor has a number of the finest buttons I’ve pressed on a case, together with for the Action Button. There’s a gap within the middle to point out off that basic Apple emblem, and over on the entrance, the perimeters are raised above the display for further safety. The kickstand is simply OK. It’s slightly onerous for me to drag out, and it solely works in panorama orientation. But hey, it is low-cost. I’ve additionally examined Spigen’s Mag Armor and Rugged Armor, however I do not like them as a lot because the Tough Armor or the picks above.
OtterBox Symmetry MagSafe Case for $50: This case is fairly easy, but it surely’s cute! It’s constituted of 50 % recycled plastic and there are lots of colors to select from. The buttons are slightly harder to press than I’d like, however not terribly so. There’s additionally the OtterGrip Symmetry ($60), which provides a telephone grip to the again of the case. I simply do not like the way you want two fingers to take away the grip, and it would not perform as a kickstand, in contrast to related instances.
OtterBox Commuter MagSafe Case for $45: This case is just like the inverse of the Defender XT we advocate up above. You have to slide a rubber case over the iPhone, and the polycarbonate shell with the MagSecure part goes on the again. It’s fairly stable all-around, besides the MagSecure simply is not as sturdy as the opposite OtterBox instances. I do not know if it is due to the burden of the Pro Max that I examined it with, but it surely got here off my MagSecure wi-fi charging stands extra simply.
Rokform Crystal Series and Rugged Series for $70: It’s a thick and sturdy case, however the promoting level is the sturdy MagSecure connection, which the corporate claims gives 4 to 5 occasions the energy on magnetic surfaces over typical MagSecure instances. This is true, it caught to my steel desk very properly. If you need a sturdy magnetic connection, it is excellent. However, that is additionally an issue if you need to discover excellent alignment on the primary attempt along with your MagSecure wi-fi chargers. Since virtually your entire again of the case is magnetic, you may end up searching to put it in the precise spot to cost. Kinda defeats the aim of MagSecure, would not it?
Casetify Ultra Bounce MagSafe Case for $112: Pushing $100 for a case is, frankly, loopy to me. I’m not an enormous fan of the digital camera covers on this case—I really feel like I smudge the cameras greater than ever as a result of it sits flush with the remainder of the case. The quantity rocker is a bit mushy too. That mentioned, the large bumps on the corners have a very good likelihood of absorbing affect and defending your telephone. You’ll have a tough time becoming it in a pocket, however there is a spot to connect a lanyard (not included) if you wish to dangle this cumbersome factor in your wrist. Casetify additionally has tons of various designs to select from. I’ve beforehand examined and like its Impact cases ($68), that are nonetheless costly, however cheaper than this.
Catalyst Influence MagSafe Case for $60: This case has speaker ports that direct the iPhone’s bottom-firing audio system at your face, and it is fairly efficient! The Action Button is unfortunately a cutout as a substitute of a button, but it surely’s not too onerous to entry. The non-Pro fashions have the basic Catalyst rotating button you may twist to toggle the mute swap.
(*16*): These instances have a number of designs you may select from, and they actually appear like one thing straight out of New York Fashion Week. The buttons are stable, the display is protected a bit through raised edges, and whereas the Action Button on the Pro fashions is a cutout as a substitute of a button, it is not onerous to entry. The MagSecure connection is dependable, and it is decently grippy. Burga additionally has a non-MagSafe case ($35) for those who do not take care of magnets, but it surely feels decidedly cheaper.
Wave Case MagSafe Case for $44: These instances have a cutout for the Action Button on the Pro fashions, but it surely’s comparatively straightforward to entry. The MagSecure help is stable, and they’re in any other case completely practical. They’re just a bit uninteresting. What’s not uninteresting is that they are constituted of biodegradable wheat straw and are available 100% recyclable packaging.
UAG Pathfinder MagSafe Case for $60: I’ve examined a bunch of UAG instances, and the Pathfinder is my favourite. The design, particularly in a stable shade like Cloud Blue, has this spacey industrial look to it. Neat! The sides are grippy, there is a spot to connect a lanyard, and it hooks as much as MagSecure equipment properly. Sadly, the Action Button is a cutout—not an issue for the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus and their mute swap!
Speck Presidio Perfect-Clear MagSafe Case for $50: This is an honest clear case, however the Action Button is slightly onerous to press. It reveals smudges fairly simply too. It comes with Speck’s ClickLock proprietary magnetic mounting resolution for added safety with Speck’s MagSecure equipment, however you should use any MagSecure gear with this case. It’s made with 50 % recycled plastics.
Spigen Optik Armor Magfit Case for $27: This case is just out there for the Pro models. It covers the rear cameras, whether or not you need to hold them protected otherwise you need added privateness and peace of thoughts. I just like the matte texture on the again. I seen just a few critiques say they’ve had points utilizing it with wi-fi chargers and MagSecure equipment, however I’ve had no qualms right here. The digital camera cowl does grasp off the sting if you depart it open, however you may take away it utterly if you’re going to shoot a variety of photographs. Just do not misplace it! The Action Button is a bit stiff too.
Incipio AeroGrip MagSafe Case for iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max for $60: It would not rock a lot on a desk however stays flat, and true to its identify, it gives a reasonably good grip. However, the Action Button is a cutout, and I discovered it a bit onerous to entry.
Incipio Forme Clear MagSafe Case for $50: This is a enjoyable clear case with a snazzy design that lights up the colours of the rainbow when mild scatters on it. Like the AeroGrip, the Action Button is a cutout and onerous to press, however I did not have points with it in any other case. It’s a stable possibility for the non-Pro iPhones.
