Twenty-five cases to keep your iPhone SE looking like new

Apple has repackaged the powerful iPhone 6S into an iPhone 5S body to bring us the new iPhone SE. This diminutive new iPhone is cheaper and easier to handle than its big brothers, the 6S and 6S Plus, but it still represents a fragile combination of glass and metal that will break all too easily if you drop it. If you have an old iPhone 5S or iPhone 5 case lying around, then it can be repurposed for the new phone. Most of you will likely prefer to snag a new one, however, so we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite iPhone SE cases in the lines below.

Twelve South BookBook Case ($50)

Twelve South BookBook Case

Disguise your iPhone SE as a vintage book with this genuine leather case that also doubles as a wallet. Open it up, and you’ll see there’s a leather-wrapped frame to hold your iPhone in place, along with a transparent ID pocket, three card slots, and a money pocket. There are also cut-outs for quick access to your phone’s controls, ports, and camera. It’s not the most protective case around and the leather will age, but it’s still a lot of fun.

VRS Design Crystal Bumper Case ($14)

VRS Design Crystal Bumper Case

This case combines a TPU layer that’s shock absorbing and transparent with a tough polycarbonate bumper that surrounds the outside. The bumper has well-defined button covers for the volume and power keys, too, and there are four colors to choose from, so you can match the bumper to the color of your iPhone SE. The case will guard against small drops and bumps, and it also has a lip to protect your phone’s display, but it’s not a truly rugged case.

FlexiShield Gel Case ($8)

FlexiShield Gel Case

Here’s a simple gel case that’s super easy to fit on your iPhone SE. It adds a thin layer for simple protection and grip, the latter of which makes your phone more comfortable to hold. You can get the case in black, blue, red, or pink, but we prefer the clear version as it shows off Apple’s design. There are thin button covers, and it offers all the necessary cut-outs for your phone’s features. The raised lip around the screen also provides a little protection when you place your phone face down, and helps prevent accidental screen touches.

LuMee Selfie Light Case ($50)

LuMee Selfie Light Case

The Lumee might seem rather clunky at first glance, but that’s because it packs its own lighting system, which can help you capture great selfies at night. There’s a dimmer switch inside the case, so you can pick the correct lighting level for your environment, and the built-in battery can last for up to 36 hours. The Lumee is also good if you need to find something in the dark, or FaceTime with someone. And the case does provide basic drop protection.

Tech21 Evo Mesh Case ($18+)

Tech21 Evo Mesh Case

An eye-catching mesh pattern and a special TPU formula that delivers solid drop protection should be enough to draw the Evo Mesh to your attention. If not, however, the case comes outfitted with easy-to-use button covers and accurate openings for your phone’s side switch, camera, and ports. The case is flexible and very easy to grip. It’s also translucent and comes with a white, black, or pink tinge. Tech21 is a name you can trust, and your iPhone SE will survive falls of up to 6.6 feet in height if it’s wearing this case.
