If you're a butterfingers like me, you've probably broken and dented a few iPhones in your day. Although those ultra thin cases look great, they just don't hold up to the rough treatment my iPhones receive, so I always buy heavy-duty cases with military-grade protection. My iPhone 12 is no exception. After a few years of trying out different types of cases, these are my picks for the best iPhone 12 rugged cases.
