Don't cover up all that iPhone 12 beauty with a big hefty case! Choose one of the best iPhone 12 ultra-thin cases to maintain that slim profile while keeping your handset safe from scratches and minor drops. 

For the absolute slimmest case, you'll want the PEEL Case. Although it may not provide as much protection as some other cases on this list, there's nothing thinner than this. If a naked feel is what you like, this is the way to go.

However, if you want to be able to use MagSafe chargers, MagSafe battery packs, MagSafe charging stands, and MagSafe car mounts, you'll need a MagSafe-compatible case for your iPhone 12. You can't go wrong with Apple's own, of course, as it's designed by Apple engineers to hug the phone's curves to perfection.
