There you have it, folks — these are some of the thinnest and most lightweight cases you can get for your iPhone XS. They're great for protecting your device from minor scratches and nicks, but keep in mind that these aren't designed for major drops or when your device gets run over. Of course, there are great heavy-duty iPhone XS cases for that, too.

For the thinnest of the thin, we'd go with the totallee Thin iPhone XS case (opens in new tab). It definitely gives you that authentic no-case feel while protecting it from bumps and scuffs. This is the case for people who really don't want a case, but want to avoid at least scratching up their iPhones. Just don't expect it to keep your iPhone safe from major drops.

If you're willing to go just a little bit thicker, the Apple Silicone Case (opens in new tab) is a stunner. Its design is simple yet perfect for the iPhone, created by Apple to hug the iPhone's every curve. Rather than take away from your iPhone's looks, Apple's Silicone Case enhances it with an array of beautiful colors and a familiar Apple logo on the back. While still being a very thin case, this one adds a bit more protection with its soft silicone outside and microfiber lining inside.

Even if you're going for the minimalist look, we'd still recommend protecting your screen. We've rounded up the best iPhone XS screen protectors for you.
