In and of itself, the iPhone 12 has a smart, sophisticated look. A lot of cases take away from the simple beauty, but there's one way to enhance that refined feel — with a stylish leather case! We've done the work and compiled a list of the best iPhone 12 leather cases to keep your iPhone safe and looking smart. Keep in mind, if you use the MagSafe charger with a genuine leather case, it may develop the shadow of a ring where the magnets are, but we say it just adds character.
