Wood and leather: Pad & Quill Luxury Book Wallet Case

Treat your iPhone XS Max to some serious luxury here. A hand-finished Baltic Birch wood frame cradles your iPhone, while full-grain American saddle leather wraps around to form a folio-style wallet case. Six pockets include a clear ID holder and hidden cash pocket. An elastic band holds the folio together when not in use.

$110 at Pad & Quill

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. 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.
