The iPhone has become a necessary accessory when out on a run, providing maps, music, and even guidance in the form of coaching apps.

Anyone with a healthy love for running will need an iPhone 12 case for runners to protect that pristine smartphone. I prefer the classic armband to keep the iPhone safe and accessible on my arm while I run. The Armpocket is made of a soft breathable fabric that doesn't feel hot or heavy against the skin.

A more serious runner than me, however, might need something more aerodynamic like the Tikaton Running Vest that holds the phone in the center of the body for better balance. The iPhone pocket on this vest flips down for easy access to your iPhone touchscreen. This is only one of many innovative options to help you run safely with your iPhone 12.

Jaclyn has also worked in the marketing sector for over 16 years, dabbling in a bit of everything from writing to graphic design and digital marketing. In her heart of hearts, however, she is a born writer and an avid reader who adores everything about the written word. Someday she may even churn out a book or two.

Throughout her career, Jaclyn has also developed something of an addiction to all things Apple. Her professional and personal life is enhanced by an ever-growing collection of iPhones, iPads, MacBooks, Apple Watches, and even AirTags. Luckily, this expensive habit is of great use to her work at iMore, where she writes with authority on Apple products and the accessories that go with them.
