Although many brands advertise military-grade iPhone protection, we've never seen one that protects better than a Mous case, as we point out in our review of the Infinity. The Infinity model is ultra-clear from every angle but still offers that Mous-level protection. This one is also fully MagSafe-compatible.
You simply can't go wrong with an Apple case. You can count on this case to fit perfectly, protect well, and function beautifully with all things MagSafe. The flexible material is scratch-resistant and easy to install.
For tight budgets, JETech offers this very affordable clear case that incorporates rubberized bumpers for protection. There are also raised bezels around the camera and screen to keep those sensitive areas safe.
Slimmer than slim
Totallee offers some of the slimmest iPhone cases you'll ever see. At less than a millimeter thick, you'll barely even know it's there. The TPU material does provide some protection from everyday bumps and scratches, but it is not military-grade.
The Caudabe Lucid case is so clear it's almost liquid, with a shiny, hard surface that will show off your iPhone 13. The thermoplastic polymer is the same material used to make bulletproof glass.
A little something extra
Case-Mate offers clear cases that have a little something extra — super cute printed designs! Whether you like stars, bling, or butterflies, there's something fun for your iPhone in this line of clear printed cases.
Casetify lets you personalize your clear case with a custom print that's all your own. You choose the lettering and design for a unique case that's truly one of a kind. When I reviewed this case, I chose the Casetify Clouds print, but there are scores of designs to choose from.
Clear but never yellow
One major drawback of clear cases is that they turn yellow with time. CASEKOO promises long-term clarity due to an anti-yellow coating that prevents yellowing over time. This case is also simple, slim, and reasonably protective.
The perfect combo of protection and minimal slimness, the MagEasy Case provides excellent shock protection, MagSafe compatibility, and an anti-yellow coating. This one also incorporates a layer of air around the back panel to prevent moisture buildup.
Don't hide your iPhone color
Don't hide your beautiful new iPhone. Show it off with a clear case! The best clear cases for iPhone 13 are both protective and slim, like the Mous Infinity. Since this case is also MagSafe-compatible, you can continue to use it with all of your MagSafe accessories.
If that one is a little out of your budget, there's always the JETech Case, which offers some protection alongside an attractively low price point. Whether you like personalized cases or simple slim designs, there's a case for every sort on this list. Find the one that works for you and your lifestyle.
