Apple's own: Apple Silicone Case with MagSafeStaff Pick
The Apple option is always a good one. We like the silicone case for its appealing colors, perfect fit, and MagSafe compatibility. It's a slim case with a soft microfiber interior for extra protection.
Quality and price: Spigen Ultra Hybrid Designed for Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max Case
With a hard polycarbonate back and soft TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) bumper, you can show off your iPhone 12 Pro Max while protecting it. Spigen offers quality products at reasonable prices. Choose from several color options.
PopSocket collab: iPhone 12 Pro Max Otter + Pop Symmetry Series
OtterBox and PopSocket had a baby, and this case is it. The handy PopSocket PopGrip is built right into the OtterBox case, so it folds out of the way when not in use. Mix and match to create your own look; you can get several PopSockets and twist to swap them out.
Fashionable: Velvet Caviar iPhone 12 Pro Max Case
Up the fashion factor with a Velvet Caviar. Despite its whimsical looks, this is a ruggedly protective case. It comes in many, many colorful and shimmery choices. You can buy a matching ring grip for selfies, too.
Extremely thin: totallee Thin iPhone 12 Pro Max Case
This is the case for the absolute minimalist. If you don't really want to spoil the iPhone's clean lines or add any bulk, but you want just a touch of protection, the totallee case is for you. You also get a few color options here.
Pick a bouquet: CYRILL iPhone 12 Pro Max Case
The well-priced CYRILL case features a hard back and flexible TPU bumper for slim protection. Choose from a variety of pretty bouquets to match your iPhone 12 Pro Max or your favorite outfit.
Luxury folio style: NOMAD Rugged Leather Folio - MagSafe
This luxurious MagSafe-compatible Horween leather wallet case will develop a rich patina over time. The folio holds up to three cards plus cash, so you don't need to carry a separate wallet. Choose between Black or Rustic Brown.
Extra grip: Incipio Grip for iPhone 12 Pro Max
The edges of this case have treads almost like a tire, so you'll have an easier time hanging onto your extra-large iPhone. Choose the clear case shown here or a handful of other colors.
Natural beauty: Mous Limitless 3.0 iPhone 12 Pro Max Case
Mous makes gorgeous, elegant cases that protect well while maintaining a slimmer profile. The cases owe their good looks to various genuine materials used for the back panel, such as wood, leather, and more. These cases are guaranteed to work with MagSafe.
Bling bling: Case-Mate Case for iPhone 12 Pro Max
Get 10-foot drop protection with this protective but fun case. It's clear enough to see your iPhone's color through it, but it's filled with metallic glitter confetti (securely sealed inside so it won't shed). It's a party every time you look at it.
Super grip: Speck Presidio2 Perfect Grip iPhone 12 Pro Max Case
The extremely durable case offers up to 13 feet (!) of drop protection. The no-slip grips provide both visual interest and plenty of grip, so your iPhone is less likely to slip out of your hands in the first place.
Dance, dance, dance: Smartish iPhone 12 Pro Max Crossbody Case
It's not easy to find a small crossbody purse that's roomy enough to hold an iPhone 12 Pro Max. Luckily, this wallet case becomes a crossbody bag when you attach the strap. The wallet flap holds up to five cards plus cash, and the strap holds two lippies.
Fun protection: CASETiFY Ultra Impact Case
Don't let CASETiFY's whimsical good looks fool you. This is a protective case with reinforced corners. Customize your iPhone with one of the hundreds of available patterns, or design your own!
Textured: Caseology Parallax for Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max Case
This colorful, textured case adds visual interest to your iPhone 12 Pro Max. The texture also adds grip while maintaining wireless functionality. Choose from a few color options.
Custom cuteness: Case Warehouse iPhone 12 Pro Max Case

Skeumorphic: Twelve South Bookbook case
Your iPhone 12 Pro Max will stand out from the crowd in this classic-looking case. The folio-style wallet case resembles a leather-bound book embossed with gold lettering. Choose Brown or Black.
Super tough: Urban Armor Gear Pathfinder
This ultra-rugged case looks as protective as it is, yet it's not too heavy or bulky. Its hard armor shell and soft impact-resistant core give it that protection without the weight. Choose from several colors and styles.
Pouch: Waterfield Ranger iPhone Case
Not a case in the usual sense; this pouch can be worn on your belt and holds a "naked" iPhone or perhaps one in a very thin case. Keep your iPhone 12 Pro Max, and other small accessories close at hand.
Which iPhone 12 Pro Max case should you choose?
Any of the cases on this list would be a good choice; it just depends on which features and looks you like. You certainly can't go wrong with Apple's own MagSafe Case.
If you want something a little different, we love the Mous Limitless line of cases. Specially designed to be ultra-protective while maintaining slim lines and classy, good looks, the case will elevate your iPhone 12 Pro Max style.
