The iPhone XR was the first iPhone in years to be released with fantastic colour options. Sure, you can get classic black or white, but you can also choose blue, yellow, coral, and (PRODUCT) RED. Why would you want to obscure that beauty with an opaque case? Here are some of the best options for protecting it without hiding the colour.
Best for Most
Spigen is known for its high-quality at a reasonable price. The TPU bumper and durable PC back make this a protective hybrid case that won't add a ton of bulk.
Rugged: UAG Plasma Series
This tough case meets military drop-test standards and has a robust, masculine feel. Despite the solid appearance, the case is surprisingly light-weight.
£25 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Rigid: Caudabe Synthesis
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.
£19 at Amazon (opens in new tab)(opens in new tab)
Eye-Catching: Ciel by Cyrill Case
Here is a fun, inexpensive clear case with a pattern printed on it. Cover your iPhone with cacti, pineapples, roses, and more.

Which is best for you?
Whether you're choosing an iPhone XR in a fun colour like red or yellow, or a classic colour like silver or space grey, you're going to want to show it off. Clear cases allow you to do that while still offering some protection. My personal favourite is the Spigen Ultra Hybrid (opens in new tab) because it looks excellent and offers solid protection against scratches and scuffs.
If you want to have a little fun with colour and pattern but still want the iPhone XR to show through, the Ciel by Cyrill Case (opens in new tab) is an excellent option. If you find yourself needed to prop up your iPhone, the ESR Kickstand Case (opens in new tab) will undoubtedly come in handy.
