The best iPhone 12 cases protect your phone, give it style and even add extra features. The new iPhone is more resistant thanks to a ceramic screen, but that doesn’t mean your phone is indestructible.
At $699, iPhone 12 is not cheap, and if you drop the phone without warranty and break it, you will spend $279 to repair a broken screen or $449 for heavier repairs. Even though you may not want to spend money on AppleCare+ or insurance, it’s a good idea to protect your new iPhone with a case.
There are hundreds, if not thousands, of iPhone cases in a variety of styles and designs, but we’ve narrowed it down to the best iPhone 12 cases you can buy so far.

Pitaka Air Case -$59.99
The Pitaka iPhone cases are among our favorites. These cases are extremely thin, yet provide adequate protection. The Pitaka Air Case is made of aramid fiber, which allows for a strong case that is incredibly thin and light.
As a bonus, the Air Case is compatible with Apple MagSafe accessories. This means that you can use the MagSafe wallet and charger with this case. It is an excellent option for buyers who want a beautiful bag that works in the new MagSafe ecosystem.

Mous Unlimited 3.0-$49.99
The Mous Limitless 3.0 iPhone case is designed to provide incredible protection without a lot of bulk. You may have seen these cases in YouTube ads, as they were thrown by cranes or thrown around buildings. We used them for the iPhone 11 Pro Max and were amazed by the look and feel of the case.
While many cases look very robust, the Mous Limitless 3.0 cases are available in beautiful wood and leather finishes that look luxurious. This case works with Limitless 3.0 accessories and Apple’s Magsafe Wireless Charger.

Apple MagSafe Cases-$39.99
The official Apple MagSafe cases for the iPhone 12 are worth considering, although you can get cases from third party vendors with the same technology.

Apple sells a MagSafe charger that works with these cases and charges the iPhone up to 50 percent in 30 minutes. They also sell a MagSafe wallet, which is attached to the back of the iPhone with magnets.
