The best cases for iPhone 13 Pro
You can always trust iMore. Our team of Apple experts have years of experience testing all kinds of tech and gadgets, so you can be sure our recommendations and criticisms are accurate and helpful. Find out more about how we test.
Thin and simple
If you want a good-quality basic case for your iPhone 13 Pro, look no further than the Spigen Thin Fit. It's a simple snap-on case that offers maximum protection with a minimal footprint on your device. It's made from polycarbonate and TPU, so it does have some shock resistance and will protect the back of your phone from scuffs and scratches.
If you like having protection without adding too much bulk to your iPhone, and you like to be able to show off your new shiny phone's design, the CASEKOO Frosted iPhone 13 Pro case manages to do all of that. It's been drop-tested at a height of 8 feet and has a camera lip to protect the lenses on the back, so you shouldn't have to worry about bumps and scuffs. Plus, its frosted translucent back is fingerprint-resistant, meaning it lets the natural beauty of the iPhone 13 Pro shine through without smudges.
Leather from Apple
The Apple Leather Case with MagSafe returns to the newest iPhone, and it's just as good as you remember. It's made with premium tanned leather that is soft to the touch and comes in multiple new colors like golden brown, dark cherry, Wisteria, and more. Plus, this is the kind of case that gets better over time since it develops a rich patina.
Slim and textured
The U Dot Series is a great minimal case for those who like grip, thanks to the textured back. This case comes in several colors, including a super pretty Dusty Rose Pink, and has a matte finish with grippy edges. Even though it's slim, it is still super protective, drop after drop.
Nomad's Modern Leather Folio uses genuine Horween leather, developing a patina with more use. In an iMore review, we found that the Nomad Folio has room for up to six cards, an ID slot, and places to put a little cash, it will let you keep your real wallet at home with no problem. And don't worry — it's fully MagSafe compatible.
OtterBox is one of our favorite iPhone cases and accessories brands, and the Symmetry Series+, which we reviewed on the 12 Pro Max, is one of the best offerings for the iPhone 13 Pro. It is slimmer than the rugged Defender Series but still offers outstanding and durable protection. The Symmetry comes in several different fun color combinations, and it's also MagSafe compatible!
Casely has a wide selection of unique prints that you can slap on your iPhone 13 Pro with its Bold + MagSafe case. According to our iMore product reviewer, Casely Bold + cases are drop-tested at an 8-foot drop, are MagSafe compatible, and have a great slip-resistant side grip, so your iPhone stays in your hand.
Do you need a MagSafe case?
We know that plenty of manufacturers have MagSafe-compatible cases now, but we also know that some are thin enough to charge using MagSafe without being officially compatible. So, of course, it ultimately depends on the case. In the end, if you buy a case that's not considered fully MagSafe compatible, you risk it not working — so consider your choice wisely. We also recommend the best MagSafe-compatible iPhone 13 Pro cases, so you don't have to waste much time researching there.
With plenty of iPhone 13 Pro cases on the market, it can be hard to decide which one is right for you. Luckily, we've reviewed several on this list to help you narrow it down.
The Spigen Thin Fit case is awesome because its price is pretty reasonable while providing great protection in a minimal form factor. Fans of minimalism will love this thin fit case that can show off the color of your iPhone 13 Pro without sacrificing protection.
If you need MagSafe compatibility, the Nomad Leather Folio Case for iPhone 13 Pro is a tad expensive but very much worth it. With a ton of space for cards, cash, and your ID, you'll never need to bring your real wallet with you again. Plus, leather lovers will love the unique patina it develops over time.
