Best iPhone 13 cases 2023

While the iPhone 13 is no longer the latest handset, you'll want to keep it working well and looking great for years to come. The way to do that is with a great case, which both protects your iPhone and expresses your personality. Note that the iPhone 13 cases are not interchangeable with other models, since the camera module and button placement varies slightly. Here are some of our favorite iPhone 13 cases. Some will also pair up nicely with the best MagSafe charging stands too.

Which of the best iPhone 13 cases should you buy?

The iPhone 13 is a fantastic handset, as detailed lovingly in our review. In fact, while the iPhone 14 is newer and improved, we wouldn't necessarily recommend that you upgrade from the still-great iPhone 13. No matter which way you go, you'll certainly want to protect it from damage. 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. Personally, I find MagSafe accessories very satisfying when you hear and feel that magnetic "thwack." Plus, you know it's really 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.

In addition to a case, I'd strongly suggest picking up one of the best screen protectors for your iPhone 13 if you want to keep it in mint condition.

You can always count on Apple to make a fantastic case that fits the iPhone to absolute perfection. I like Apple's colorful silicone MagSafe case for the wide variety of gorgeous colors that you know will coordinate beautifully with your iPhone. The MagSafe magnets just work as intended. The interior of the case is soft to the touch, which will keep your iPhone scratch-free.

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. Owning a number of ESR cases, I know they generally offer a lot of protection for a little bit of money.
