The official choice:
Apple Silicone Case with MagSafe
This year, Apple’s cases for the iPhone 12 lineup come with MagSafe support, meaning they not only support the new magnetic accessories for the iPhone 12, like the wallet attachment and MagSafe charger, but they also just slide and snap onto your iPhone.
The clear choice:
Apple Clear Case with MagSafe
Also equipped with MagSafe, this clear case offers solid protection while letting you see the beautiful color of your iPhone 12. This case works perfectly with Apple’s new set of MagSafe accessories like the charger or wallet.
Leave the wallet at home:
Snakehive iPhone Wallet Case
This folio-style wallet case is made of European Nubuck leather for a soft, suede-like finish. Carry up to three cards plus cash in this handy case, so you can leave your wallet at home.
Slim and artsy:
OtterBox Figura Series
The OtterBox Figura Series case has the expected OtterBox protection in a slim form factor, so it won’t add a lot of bulk to your iPhone 12. It’s smooth and yet grippy. The stunning painterly design comes in four different colorways.
Good for the planet:
Made from Recycled Materials
The eco-friendly Lifeproof WĀKE is made from salvaged fishing gear — about 85% ocean-based plastic. The unique textured wave pattern on the back is an eye-catching design, and the case is drop tested up to 2 meters. Every purchase of a WĀKE case donates a dollar to water-conscious, nonprofit partners.
Nomad Rugged Folio
I love Nomad’s cases. The leather becomes a living design that changes over time as you use it. This folio features a three-card and cash slot on the inside front. It’s lined with soft thick felting for added protection.
ESR Cloud Series Case
ESR has a sleek new slim case for the iPhone 12 that will catch your eye if you’re a silicone case fan. This one has a similar look to Apple’s silicone case, but it costs a lot less.
If you’re the type of person that tends to drop your iPhone a lot, this thin-but-rugged case is perfect for you. Your iPhone slips right into it like a silicon case, but it has military-grade drop protection to keep your iPhone safe. Add MagSafe compatibility and microbial protection, and you’ve got a winner of a case.
Listen, if you’re going to hide that beautiful iPhone under a case anyway, why not make it something wild and fun? This 80s-style collage art case makes a statement that lets everyone know you just wanna have fun, but there are unlimited designs (and customized options) for different tastes.
Colorful and clean:
The BodyGuardz Harmony doesn’t just look cool with its gorgeous ombre design—it also protects the iPhone 12 from drops and bacteria. Shock-absorbing corners and a raised bumper give it a 10-foot drop rating, and BodyGuardz claims that its Ultra-Fresh antimicrobial protection reduces 99% of bacteria growth.
Price and quality:
Spigen Ultra Hybrid Designed for Apple iPhone 12 Case
Spigen is known for its quality products at reasonable prices. Keep your gorgeous new iPhone 12 on full display in a clear case with a hard PC back and soft TPU bumper. Choose this crystal clear case or one with a colorful bumper to match your iPhone.
Speck Presidio Perfect – with Grips
The case’s dual-layer perimeter provides 8-foot drop protection. No-slip grips help prevent drops. Microban antimicrobial protection reduces bacteria on the case’s surface by 99%.
Made from ShockLite, a soft and flexible polymer for shock absorption, it’s drop-tested to 6.6 feet. Caudabe cases are thin but protective and come in several colors. You can choose a MagSafe-compatible option or one that’s not.
Velvet Caviar iPhone 12 case
Velvet Caviar makes gorgeous cases in lots of fashion-forward designs, many of which sparkle with holographic accents. Despite its cute looks, this case is actually heavy-duty and protective with Firm Flex technology. You can buy a matching ring grip for selfies, too.
The no-case case:
totallee Clear iPhone 12 Case
If you don’t really want a case at all but feel you need just a little something for protection, totallee is one to consider. This is the ultimate no-case case. It’s about as thick as a fingernail.
Flowers for less:
CYRILL iPhone 12 case
CYRILL’s pretty flowers adorn a soft, protective, slim case. The case’s back is a hard PC, while the bumper is a soft TPU for ease of putting on and taking off. It’s a basic case, elevated.
Natural good looks:
Mous Limitless 4.0 iPhone 12 case – various styles
Your case doesn’t have to be ultra-thick to be protective. Mous cases offer superior drop protection and a slimmer profile. The cases are made with various natural materials, such as the bamboo shown here, and they are gorgeous.
Smartish iPhone 12 Crossbody Case
No need to bring a purse. Take your iPhone 12 on the go with this crossbody faux leather case that comes in several color options. The removable strap has lip balm loops, and the attached wallet holds three cards plus cash.
