Best iPhone 15 Pro Max cases

The iPhone 15 Pro Max is the most powerful of the current crop of iPhones that you can buy, and it's also the most expensive.

Q & A

Do I really need a case for the iPhone 15 Pro Max?

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.

That's up to you, but we recommend it. Even if you do have AppleCare+, which we hope you do, there's still a deductible and at least a half day spent at the Genius Bar in your future if your iPhone 15 Pro Max takes a tumble. No case renders your iPhone 100% shatterproof, but the right case and an iPhone 15 Pro Max screen protector certainly help.

Will my old case fit the iPhone 15 Pro Max?

Don't count on it. Even if you are coming from the iPhone 14 Pro Max, the iPhone 15 Pro Max has newly contoured edges. Since the shape of the phone is different, you can't count on old cases fitting properly unless the manufacturer specifies that the case will fit multiple models.

Will the Action Button work with these cases?

The Action Button will work with any of these cases. But do keep in mind that many of them where sent to mass production before the manufacturers knew that the Action Button would exist. As a result, many cases have a cutout rather than a button over the Action Button. You should still be able to activate the Action Button if the case has a cutout, but it will feel smoother and less awkward if the case has a button cover. It's a factor to keep in mind when choosing a case, but I wouldn't avoid purchasing one solely because of a cutout.

Which iPhone 15 Pro Max case should I get?

We always love Apple's silicone beauties. They fit the iPhone like no other, hugging each curve to perfection. The colors are carefully chosen to complement and enhance the iPhone 15 Pro Max colorways. The case is slim and pleasing to the touch while offering some decent protection. And if you like to see that Apple logo, it's either an Apple-branded case or a clear case that lets the iPhone's logo show through.
