You like them big, so you're going to love the tremendous iPhone 15 Plus. The Dynamic Island from the Pro lineup makes its appearance on the iPhone 15. The 2000 nit display makes it twice as bright as the iPhone 14 Plus. Contoured edges are easier on the hand. The all new camera system with a 48MP main camera and 2x telephoto is better than ever. The new USB-C connector means fewer cables for travel. A bigger phone means a bigger investment, so be sure to keep it safe from the very beginning. Here are the best iPhone 15 Plus cases that you can order now.
Best slim protection
The OtterBox Figura with MagSafe, which we reviewed on a previous iPhone, is a longtime iMore favorite case. It's an Apple favorite too, you'll see it on your shelf at your local Apple store. This lovely design was inspired by gouache painting. The case is quite thin and flexible, easy to put on and take off. If you like slimmer cases, this is for you.
Best for leather fans
If real leather is what you want, check out the rugged beauty of this MagSafe-compatible case. Vegetable-tanned American Horween leather elegantly protects your iPhone 15 Plus from drops of up to eight feet. We reviewed a similar Nomad case and raved about its blend of beauty and protection.
Barely a case
For the case haters out there, give this one a shot. It'll give you scratch protection if nothing else, and it won't add any noticeable bulk or weight to your iPhone 15 Plus. As noted in our review of an earlier model, the totallee Thin iPhone case is about a thick as a fingernail.
We appreciated the price tag when we reviewed a previous Spigen Ultra Hybrid case. The latest model offers this cool design as well as several others, including totally clear to show off that beautiful phone.
Best clear protection
Cool and collected
Don't let the adorable looks fool you: this serious case offers eight foot drop protection. We reviewed a Velvet Caviar case on a older iPhone and loved how cute and protective these cases are. Choose from tons of designs, but this one is new for the iPhone 15 lineup.
Luxury leather wallet
Apple isn't in the leather business anymore, but TORRO is. This beauty is also a wallet and a kickstand. It has three card slots plus a cash slot, so you can leave your wallet at home. Crafted from luxury leather in the UK, it comes in a bunch of colors to suit any taste.
This well-priced pair includes a MagSafe compatible clear case plus a magnetic wallet that snaps onto the case. The clear PC back and TPU edges give your iPhone 15 Plus nice protection without too much bulk. The wallet holds up to four cards and works as a kickstand too.
The ClickLock No-Slip Interlock system is an improvement on the already great Speck Presidio2 Grip Case we reviewed with a previous iPhone model. The new system works great with MagSafe but also creates an extra-secure connection with Speck's ClickLock accessories. There are lots of color options.
When we reviewed a previous version of the Kate Spade New York MagSafe case, we loved how we didn't have to sacrifice fashion for tech. Get this trendy style as well as other Kate Spade designs with MagSafe compatibility and 10-foot drop protection.
Want to make sure your selfies are always on point? Take a quick glance in this reflective CASETiFY Mirror Case and you'll know every hair is in place. We reviewed a previous version, but note that you'll need to order directly from CASETiFY's site to get it personalized.

Best for Apple fans
You can never go wrong with Apple's own; we reviewed an earlier model of the Apple Silicone Case with MagSafe and loved the fit and finish. It just works so well with the iPhone. By now, it's a classic, and Apple delights us with new colors to enhance the latest iPhone colorways each year.
In our review of a previous model of the
Rifle Paper Co. iPhone Case, we talked about how chic this case is. It's the result of a collaboration between the popular stationery company and Case-Mate. The case comes in several pretty designs and has 12-foot drop protection.
Unique leather case
We loved the hidden wallet compartment when we reviewed an older model of the smooth premium leather Bellroy Phone Case – 3 Card. Not only does it keep up to three cards safely tucked away, but it double as a stand for watching videos.
Q & A
Do I really need a case for my iPhone 15 Plus?
You can always trust iMore. Our team of Apple experts have years of experience testing all kinds of tech and gadgets, so you can be sure our recommendations and criticisms are accurate and helpful. Find out more about how we test.
AppleCare+ is always the way, but still. Accidents happen and you'd probably rather not have to pay for a deductible and spend half your day at the Apple Store getting repairs done. A good case can help prevent that.
Will my old case fit the iPhone 15 Plus?
No. The contoured edges give the iPhone 15 Plus a new shape, so cases that were designed for other iPhone models will not fit properly.
Which case should I get for my iPhone 15 Plus?
Past versions of the OtterBox Figura have been in my personal regular rotation for years and I look forward to the new one with every model. The colors complement the iPhone 15 Plus color lineup and the lightweight case balances heft and protection nicely. But you can't go wrong with any of the above cases.
