Which of the best iPhone 13 cases should you buy?

While the iPhone 15 isn't too far away now, the iPhone 13 remains a fantastic handset, even if the iPhone 14 is newer and improved. If you have an iPhone 13, you don't really need to upgrade to the iPhone 14 and current suggestions are that the iPhone 15 won't be that significant an upgrade for people currently satisfied with the 13. 

Still, if you're happy with your iPhone 13, you'll want to keep it safe from damage or any knocks. If you're going to be using a MagSafe charger like the Apple MagSafe Charger or other best MagSafe accessories, you'll want to be sure to choose a case with MagSafe compatibility. The magnetic "thwack" of a MagSafe accessory is super satisfying, plus you know it's going to stay in place. However, if you don't see yourself ever using that feature, you probably don't need to pay for a MagSafe case.

Already focused on keeping your iPhone 13 in as-new condition? Think about picking up one of the best screen protectors for your iPhone 13 to help your chances even further.

We're big fans of Apple's colorful silicone MagSafe case. The range offers a wide variety of gorgeous colors that coordinate beautifully with your iPhone. The MagSafe magnets work as intended while the interior is soft to the touch.

If you want something a bit more feminine but you still want MagSafe compatibility, check out the entire fun and fashionable Kate Spade MagSafe iPhone case lineup. Many of the Kate Spade cases are stylish and feminine while still being fairly neutral color-wise, so they go with your whole wardrobe. On the other hand, if you just want something basic and inexpensive and don't care about MagSafe compatibility, the ESR case is a great pick. They generally offer a lot of protection for a little bit of money.
