Lugging around both your wallet and your iPhone can make for some extra bulky pockets or a lot of space taken up in your bag or purse. A good iPhone 8 wallet case will not only provide you with the space for some cash, cards, and ID but also give your phone a little added protection from bumps and scrapes until you plan to update to an iPhone 14 or other model. Luckily, the iPhone 8 is exactly the same size as the iPhone 7 and iPhone SE (2 and 3) so the cases are all interchangeable. We've rounded up the best iPhone 8 wallet cases to help you cut down on space and up the convenience.

Vena's vCommute is my favorite wallet case simply because it's cool as hell. It's a little thicker than some cases, but it provides fairly rugged protection, and the magnetic back closure is convenient and functional — hiding your cards and doubling as a handy kickstand.
No Front Cover
If you're looking for a slimmer option without the front cover, then check out Spigen's Slim Armor CS, which features a sliding door on the back that hides the wallet compartment. This case features a layer of shock-absorbent TPU, which is flexible and prevents scratches, as well as an outer layer of hard polycarbonate plastic, which protects against bumps and drops.
Dreem's Fibonacci wallet case is another cool one, featuring Dreem's circular logo on the back and some really lovely stitching. What's really rad is that you can take your phone right out of the wallet case, and there's still an awesome PU leather bumper case to protect your phone — it's two cases in one.
Leave your wallet at home and slide your credit cards and ID into the back of this TPU case. You can fit up to three cards, and the silicone holds your cards tight, which is ideal since the slot is open, unlike the vCommute or Spigen Slim Armor CS. That just means you have constant easy access to the cards you need most.
Slim and stylish
Made with durable leather, the WenBelle Blazer series case has three card slots and a clear ID pouch on the inside so you can carry your most essential belongings. Plus, the WenBelle Blazer series case is quite thin, meaning you don't have to worry about carrying around a brick in your pocket.
Wallet and kickstand
This case's exterior is PU, while a built-in TPU shell holds your iPhone SE firmly inside. The folio acts as a built-in kickstand, allowing several different viewing angles for you to watch videos. There are three card slots, plus a larger slot you could use for cash or more cards. Magnetic tabs hold the folio closed when not in use.
A bit about wallet cases
Until you're ready to upgrade to the iPhone 14 or another newer model, keep your iPhone 8 protected with a great case. I love using a wallet case with my iPhone 8 because, as stated in our iPhone 8 review, the all-glass design needs protection. It allows me to keep my most important cards with me; my ID, credit cards, and a bit of cash, without needing a full wallet or bag. The folio-style iPhone 8 wallet cases give you added screen protection, but it can be annoying for some because the added bulk means the cover doesn't always lay flush.
The backside wallet style cases are ideal for people that are more interested in slim design than extra card pockets. If you think of yourself as a minimalist case fan, you should consider a backside wallet-style case. If you're more interested in having all the room you need for your most important cards (plus a few dollars), you're going to do better with a folio wallet-style case.
We love the durable protection, card wallet, and kickstand of the Vena VCommute. It's the perfect case for anyone who wants their case to be as functional as possible. In addition to holding up to three cards, you can convert the back cover into a kickstand for watching videos. And you don't have to worry, the card slot on the back won't interfere with Apple Pay.
If you prefer a slimmer wallet case, Spigen's Slim Armor CS is as thin as a wallet case can get and still allow you to carry up to two cards with you. With Spigen's Air Cushion Technology, shock-absorbing TPU interior, and polycarbonate exterior your iPhone 8 will be well protected within this case.
