The iPhone 11 Pro is a beautiful device, but part of that beauty comes from the fact that it's almost entirely made of glass.

Our recommendations

Of all of these cases, I'd go with the Smartish Kung Fu Grip. It's a fairly protective case with a grippy texture that should keep your iPhone in your hand, where it belongs. It's also fairly inexpensive, which is great if you just want a case for your phone ASAP.

If you're a fan of thin cases, Totallee makes some of the best out there, and the colors are always excellent and vibrant. And for something in leather, it's hard to beat Nomad's Tri-folio wallet case.
