How to protect the glass-back iPhone 8

Cases are a great way to protect your iPhone 8 from breaking; however, it is possible that a case could interfere with the wireless charging feature.

One of the ways to protect the glass back of your iPhone 8 without hampering the ability to wireless charge is to get a skin. Here are some of our favorite skins you can find for the iPhone 8 right now.
