Carrying around both your wallet and your iPhone can make for some bulky pockets or a lot of space taken up in your bag or purse. We've rounded up the best wallet cases for iPhone X to help you cut down on space and up the convenience.

Wireless charging with a wallet case

If you use (or plan to use) wireless charging with your wallet case, you may want to think long and hard about what type of case you want. Bank cards, credit cards, and other plastic cards work with different forms of magnetic transfer which can be ruined when exposed to the magnets in a wireless charger. Our very own Russell Holly put it quite simply:

"When you put these cards in between your iPhone and your case, using the case as a sort of one or two-card wallet, you are exposing these cards to far greater electromagnetic induction energy than they are built to handle as soon as you put your phone on a wireless charger. Your cards will quickly become useless when you put them in between your iPhone and a Wireless charger, and you won't know they are useless until you try to use them."

As a basic rule of thumb, if you have cards stored on the front of your phone — like in a folio case — you should be in the clear; however, for the cases that store cards on the back, make sure you take your cards out before using a wireless charger.

Vena's vCommute is a personal favorite of fellow iMore writer Mike Tanasychuk, which he describes as "simply cool as hell."

It's certainly a little thicker than most typical wallet 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.

You can fit up to three cards in the back of the vCommute, and there's a little slope in the opening, so you never had to fidget to try and get your cards out; they just slide out nicely.
