So you're carrying the iPhone XS Max, and it's definitely a large phone. Maybe you'd like to skip carrying a wallet, too.

Here are some of the best wallet cases for the iPhone XS Max.

Pad & Quill

Wood and leather: Pad & Quill Luxury Book Wallet Case

Treat your iPhone XS Max to some serious luxury here.

A place to put It all

Wallet cases come in many different forms and styles. They come in at very different price points and offer different features. This list has something for everyone. If you're looking for the best mix of style, function, and protection, my personal favorite case is the Speck Presidio Folio.

If you like a full-size wallet case with a luxurious look and feel, you'll probably prefer the Pad & Quill Luxury Wallet Case. Do keep in mind that when cards are kept on the back of the phone, wireless charging is not likely to work. Folio style cases where the cards are kept to the front of the phone shouldn't be an issue.
