Jogging with your iPhone XS Max requires a little bit of gear; you'll want either a heavy-duty case or an armband. An armband gets it out of your pocket altogether and on your bicep or forearm for quick access, while a good solid heavy-duty case protects your iPhone XS Max from receive damage if it falls out of your pocket. Here are some of our favorites.

In Conclusion

I like having my phone just in my pocket when I run, which means I usually opt for wrapping my iPhone XS Max in a good protective case like i-Blason Armorbox (opens in new tab). However, if you do like the armband style case, I would seriously consider Tune Belt running armband (opens in new tab). Both are good options for keeping the phone safe and secure during a good run.

Either way, you must get the running case that's going to be the most useful to you. The added protection and peace of mind it gives you for those jogs means you don't have to worry about damaging your iPhone XS Max while working out!
