The iPhone 12 breaks away from the rounded design of previous years and ushers in a retro era of flat sides and squared edges. It's a cool look that is somehow retro, yet fresh and new at the same time. If you love the new look as much as we do, you won't want to cover all that up with an opaque case. That's why you need this list of the best iPhone 12 clear cases to show off that lovely new design.
The clear combo
The Incipio Slim is a combination of attractive simplicity and reliable drop protection. With 14-foot drop protection along with substantially raised bezels around the screen and camera, you won't have to worry about any damage to your iPhone while it's in this case. It's also crystal clear and shiny with a variety of transparent color choices.
The original MagSafe
The first case ever made with full MagSafe compatibility, the Apple Clear Case is strong, clear, and slim. Since it's made by Apple, you can count on a perfect fit with snug, clicky buttons. And of course, the case works well with all MagSafe accessories.
For the thinnest clear case possible, PEEL delivers a soft case that's less than a millimeter thick! It's the closest thing you'll find to a naked iPhone. Although it won't provide robust protection, the PEEL case will save your iPhone 12 from minor bumps and scratches.
When heavy-duty protection is what's required, you can't go wrong with OtterBox. The OtterBox Symmetry provides robust military-grade drop protection for every surface of your iPhone 12. While it's not the slimmest case on this list, the Symmetry is pretty thin for OtterBox standards.
All about that screen
The Diaclara Case packs a little something extra in the way of a built-in screen protector. This ensures protection on every side, including protection from scratches or scuffs on the screen. The two-piece design makes installation simple and quick.
Pretty pretty prints
Clear cases allow the iPhone's beauty to show, but they can feel a little boring. If you want a clear case with a little pizzazz, check out MOSNOVO's print collection. This model incorporates fun printed designs on the clear case while the iPhone still shines through underneath.
For a basic clear case that won't empty your wallet, the Temdan Clear Case is simple yet effective. With raised bezels around the screen and camera, it provides adequate protection, and it also supports wireless charging.
Take a stand
Here's a case that can multitask. The TORRAS MoonClimber comes with a discreet built-in stand that can prop up the iPhone 12 in both horizontal and vertical orientations. The slim metal stand doesn't take away from the minimal profile of the clear case.
