With the iPhone XR, Apple brought back some fun colors in addition to its classic black and white shades: blue, yellow, coral, and (PRODUCT) RED. Here are some of the best clear cases for your iPhone XR, so you can protect it without hiding the great color you chose.
Best for most
Spigen is known for its high-quality cases at reasonable prices. The TPU bumper and durable polycarbonate back make the Spigen Ultra Hybrid a protective hybrid case that won't add a ton of bulk. That's why it's one of our favorite iPhone XR clear cases.
We love how the Peel case doesn't detract from our iPhone's appearance; it's barely there! This is only for careful users, however, not if you need major drop protection.
Colorful and custom
We love CASETiFY, which offers a ton of colors and styles, many of which are clear with a pattern. New and interesting designs come out often, but you can can even upload your own.
A dual-layer protective bumper and clear back shows off your phone while protecting it from drops. It meets military drop standards but with a slim profile.
The Smartish Clear case has a matte frosted back for a slightly filtered appearance. Beyond plain clear, there are some whimsical patterns to choose from as well.
ESR's Kickstand Case is a clear TPU case with a built-in metal kickstand that can be used at multiple angles. Prop up your phone vertically or horizontally and watch a video hands-free.
This clear TPU case from DTTO has a metallic edge to add a touch of color and shine. Choose from red, blue, black, gold, or silver at different price points.
Lontect offers a slim, clear TPU case with a hint of color and sparkle, if you like. The design sparkles while the reinforced edges add protection.
Caudabe's Synthesis is thin but powerful. The bumper is flexible and textured, so your iPhone won't slip out of your hands, but the back is smooth and rigid. In person, the translucence adds a bit of sophistication.
Here is a fun, inexpensive clear case with a pattern printed on it. I often recommend the CYRILL Cecile to friends who want a cute case that's not too pricey.
You can't go wrong with Apple's own clear case since you know it will fit perfectly. Apple's engineers have designed it to hug and enhance the iPhone's every curve. The iPhone XR is the star here, not the case.
Which iPhone XR clear case is best for you?
You can always trust iMore.
The iPhone XR was the first iPhone in years to be released with amazing color options. We love those iPhone XR colors! Sure, you can get classic black or white, but you can also choose blue, yellow, coral, and (PRODUCT) RED. There are plenty of great cases for the iPhone XR, but why would you want to obscure that beauty with an opaque case?
Whether you're choosing an iPhone in fun colors or classics, you're going to want to show it off. Clear cases allow you to do that while still offering some protection. My personal favorite basic case is the Spigen Ultra Hybrid because it looks great and offers solid protection against scratches and scuffs.
If you want to have a little fun with color and pattern but still want the iPhone XR to show through, the CYRILL Cecile iPhone Case case is a nice option. If you want a truly unique case, go for CASETiFY and choose one of their virtually unlimited options for visually stimulating transparent designs.
