The best Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max cases and covers

Now that the iPhone 14 Pro Max has been officially released following Apple's "Far Out" September showcase and is up for pre-order, fans looking to buy the new smartphone are also in need of new cases. The iPhone 14 Pro Max won't fit in any other previous iPhone cases, so if you're trying to keep yours safe or simply give it a unique style, you'll need to crack open your wallet.

While it's always a pain to find out that you need to spend additional cash on accessories after paying over $1,000 for the iPhone itself, purchasing a new case does mean that you get to express yourself a little bit with a fun design. Or, you can get a case built to withstand drops and possible cracks, which, given the high price point of the iPhone 14 Pro Max, is perhaps one of the best defenses against a trip back to the Apple Store for a replacement screen.

Incipio Duo MagSafe Case

Pros
  • Supports all MagSafe accessories
  • Made from recycled materials
  • 12-foot drop resistance
Cons
  • Lack of wide range of color options

Although Incipio's Duo for MagSafe may look a little plain, its two-piece design is the latest in shock absorption technology. The case is able to withstand 12-foot drops and other major collisions by distributing the force between the two pieces of its design. This makes it a surprisingly durable option for those who often find their devices in precarious situations. Unfortunately, it doesn't offer much in terms of style, so you'll be trading the iPhone's style for solid protection — which can certainly be a major roadblock for some.

Spigen Slim Armor with MagFit

Pros
  • Two-piece protective design
  • Raised edges for maximum screen protection
  • Kickstand
  • MagSafe compatible
Cons
  • Only one color option

If you're looking for a phone case that can withstand a good deal of harsh treatment, then Spigen's Slim Armor case is for you. Like the Incipio Duo above, its two-piece design is made to withstand high drops and large impacts. Although its raised edges make it a little bit bulkier than other skin-tight cases, they provide an additional layer of protection for the display and cameras. The only real downside to it is that its design leaves something to be desired. There's only one color option available and the ribbed upper third of it certainly isn't for everyone. It definitely invokes an armored feeling as its name would suggest, but the sacrifice of design that comes along with that might turn some away.

Official Apple Clear Case with MagSafe

Pros
  • Supports wireless charging
  • Clear design that shows off the design of the phone itself
  • Supports MagSafe accessories
Cons
  • Lacks personality

If you're looking for a solid case that supports wireless charging and MagSafe accessories, then the clear case offered by Apple is the way to go. While it has very little personality of its own on account of being completely see-through, it's perfect for anyone looking to show off the sleek design of the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Protection is going to be limited due to its thin profile, but that's a small price to pay for MagSafe compatibility and the clear style.

PopSockets MagSafe Clear Case

Pros
  • Detachable PopSocket grip
  • MagSafe support
  • Subtle case design
Cons
  • Lack of solid color options

The PopSockets MagSafe case is pretty similar to the official Apple MagSafe case, but also includes a detachable PopSocket, making it a solid choice for anyone worried about dropping their phone. Because this case has the ability to slide anywhere on the case, it's able to support all MagSafe accessories without needing to completely detach. Although the color options are a little bit lacking, if you get the clear color option, the design of the iPhone 14 Pro Max is able to take center stage.

Ghostek Covert Case

Pros
  • Sleek design with plenty of color options
  • Supports MagSafe accessories
  • Solid corner protection
Cons
  • Drop resistance leaves something to be desired
  • Price varies depending on which color you choose

The Ghostek Covert case sports a fantastic design, with colorful edges and a clear back, that highlight the design of your new iPhone. Although the designs are really solid, be prepared to spend a little bit more on the limited edition color options. The case should do a good job at keeping your phone safe thanks to its shock-absorbing corners, but its drop resistance is only good for eight feet. While that certainly covers drops from table heights and other regular circumstances, it does mean that your phone is more likely to take damage than when protected by some other rugged cases on this list. Still, that's more than enough for everyday damage, and if you don't want to add a lot of extra thickness, this is a great choice.

Nomad Modern Leather Case

Pros
  • Simple leather design
  • Develops an aged look over time
  • Compatible with MagSafe accessories
Cons
  • Will take scuffs and scratches

The Nomad Modern Leather case is a solid look for anyone wanting a traditional leather look for their iPhone 14 Pro Max. While its design may seem a little simple at first, it will eventually develop a patina that will give it a nice aged look. That means that the case is made from soft leather which is far more easy to scratch and scuff. Scratches like that will result in giving the case a unique look as it gets older, but it should be noted that anyone looking for a flat leather look should probably seek a case elsewhere. That said, the aging on the Nomad Modern Leather case does look excellent if you're okay with it not looking "perfect" as it gets older.

WTCASE PU Leather Case

Pros
  • Classic leather design
  • Wireless charging
  • Color variety
Cons
  • Small section of the phone's rear is unprotected

The WTCASE leather case is perfect for anyone looking for a classy leather phone case. Although it isn't real leather (which, honestly, is a pro or con depending on the person,) it still sports a classic stitched look. On top of looking good, its raised edges also protect both the screen and the rear cameras from taking damage if dropped.

Snakehive Vintage Wallet Case

Pros
  • Three card slot wallet
  • Screen protector
  • Landscape stand
Cons
  • Odd camera cut-out

As phones have become essential things to grab before leaving the house alongside things like keys and wallets, some cases have looked to merge some of those items together. One such case is the Snakehive Vintage Wallet, which mixes a phone case and a wallet together. It holds three cards and can use its flap as both a screen protector when the phone isn't in use and a stand for watching streaming content. It'll protect fairly well due to the wrap-around design, but this isn't a rugged case by any means, so just expect everyday protection.

CaseBorne V Rugged Case

Pros
  • Built to withstand the elements
  • Screen protector
  • Kickstand
Cons
  • Bulky
  • Lack of good color options

If you're an outdoorsy type looking to take your phone with you on camping trips or during other outdoor activities, the CaseBorne V is built to withstand just about anything you throw at it. Similar to the newly revealed Apple Watch Ultra, the CaseBorne V is made to be a rugged accessory for your device that will keep it safe in even the harshest of conditions. The only downsides are the size constraints that come hand-in-hand with a more durable case and its lack of solid color options.

Dbrand Grip Case

Pros
  • Striking design
  • Claims to be "the world's grippiest phone case"
  • Tactile button response
Cons
  • High price point

Although Dbrand is known for its sarcastic sense of humor when it comes to selling device accessories, the accessories it offers are of high quality. The Grip Case for the iPhone 14 Pro Max is no exception, as its striking design gives a truly unique look to the iPhone 14 Pro Max. On top of that, the company has been marketing its grip cases as the "world's grippiest phone case," which means that when you're holding a Dbrand case, it'll rest securely in your hands. Regardless of whether that's true or not, this is still a very grippy case and a good choice if you're wary of dropping your phone.

Otterbox Lumen Series with MagSafe

Pros
  • Cool design
  • Easy-to-grip sides
  • Supports MagSafe accessories
  • Great color options
Cons
  • High price point

Otterbox is known for making solid cases that protect phones, and the Lumen Series is no different. With striking color designs, support for all MagSafe accessories, and solid side grips that make the phone comfortable to hold, it's a great pick for iPhone 14 Pro Max owners. The only thing that could turn potential buyers away is that its price point is high relative to other cases on this list, but the strong Otterbox protection means it's worth the money for many.

Casetify Bounce Case

Pros
  • Supports MagSafe accessories
  • Highly durable
  • Customizable exterior
Cons
  • High price point
  • Bulky design

The Casetify Bounce Case is expensive, but for what it brings to the table, there's certainly an argument to be made that justifies its price tag. It's the most durable case that the company offers, with bumpers on each corner that diffuse the force of being dropped from the phone's most vulnerable points. Additionally, it supports all MagSafe accessories and can be customized to put your name on the outside for a personalized look.
