Best iPhone 14 cases [Mid-year 2023 update] 9to5Mac

It is now time for our mid-year update on the best iPhone 14 cases. You’ll still find all of the best iPhone 14 cases out there in our list below, including our favorite options like the SANDMARC leather models and Spigen’s budget-friendly collection as well and options from Nomad, Twelve South, and more, but we have seen a number of new releases over the last few months as well. Apple’s official silicone, leather, and clear MagSafe iPhone 14 cases remain a pricey but solid option, but there are also plenty of others worth taking a look at for your spring/summer 2023 refresh. Not everyone buys a new Apple handset every year and updating your case can be a great way to add new life to your device as well as to match up with your seasonal outfit/vibe. Head below for a closer look at our mid-year update on the best iPhone 14 cases for your most important piece of EDC. 

Best iPhone 14 cases [2023 update]

Update 4/22/2023: Our roundup of the best iPhone 14 cases is getting a nice mid-year update today. While you’ll still find the original collection of options below, we will be highlighting some new releases that have launched in 2023 up top here alongside creating a list of the cases that remain in our regular rotation as some of the best options for your money. 

Down below you’ll find a series of new reviews on the latest collections from CASETiFY, including crossover campaigns with the world-famous paper company from Scranton with the new Dunder Mifflin models, the Push-in line with interchangeable charms, and the adorable Mandalorian cases – the brand also unveiled the market’s “clearest and most protective Clear Case” for iPhone 14. All of these are detailed below in the CASETiFY section. 

We also called Twelve South’s new SurfacePad for iPhone 14 “the best leather wallet folio around” in our hands-on review and OtterBox is lighting up your MagSafe connection with new neon-style Aneu iPhone 14 cases

After over 6 months of testing, we thought it might also be helpful for some folks to be able take a quick look at some of the best iPhone 14 cases we still love after actually using them for several weeks and months at a time. It’s one thing to test them out for a few days or a week to get hands-on reviews up in order to help potential purchasers spend their money wisely, but it’s another thing entirely to actually put them through their paces for months in the streets, out in the woods, and elsewhere – some really hold up, some look even better over time, and some quickly fall to the wayside. Here’s our favorite of the best iPhone 14 cases this year at a glance:

As of right now they are all available directly from Apple, but you will also find them in an official capacity over at Amazon if you don’t score one while you’re pre-ordering your new handset later this week.

What is the best iPhone 14 case?

Everyone has different needs here, whether it’s an ultra-protective option, something more affordable, a folio-style leather wallet solution, or super minimalist clear iPhone 14 case. Needless to say, you’ll find the best iPhone 14 cases for all of the latest models listed above with even deeper dives available over at 9to5Toys (links to complete breakdowns for most of the new case collections are found in each section above). Most of our favorite brands have now launched new covers for Apple’s latest handsets and any of the stragglers will get added to our roundup of the best iPhone 14 cases as they go live.

Do iPhone 13 cases fit iPhone 14?

As you can see in our detailed breakdown, due to some small changes in the overall form-factor and the slight shift on the size and location of the power button for iPhone 14, the short answer is no. On the Pro side of things, the camera bump is even larger than previous-generation models alongside increased thickness and height, among other things. That means the iPhone 13 Pro cases almost certainly won’t fit the iPhone 14 Pro, at least not properly anyway.

Where do I get the best iPhone 14 case deals?

Well, 9to5Toys of course! The editors at 9to5Toys are scouring the internet everyday of the year for the best prices drop on Apple gear, smart home tech, and much more, including iPhone 14 case deals. Many of the best brands, including Spigen and others are already offering solid discounts and you’ll also find some exclusive discount codes for 9to5 readers scattered throughout this post with more inbound everyday.
