Catalyst Crux iPhone 14 Pro Max Case

Best lanyard iPhone 14 Pro Max case

Pros
  • 10-foot drop protection
  • Lanyard included
  • MagSafe compatible
Cons
  • Only one color option

The Catalyst Crux iPhone 14 Pro Max Case offers plenty of protection with its shock-absorbent corners. However, it's likely that buyers won't even need them, thanks to the sturdy lanyard that comes with every case.

Accessories like lanyards can make it easy to carry around your phone without fear of dropping it on the ground as long as it's fastened around your wrist. Unfortunately, the Catalyst Crux case only comes in one color. That said, you'll feel so secure with the case and lanyard that its color may not actually matter to you.

Casetify Impact Case

Best customizable iPhone 14 Pro Max case

Pros
  • Hundreds of color options
  • 8-foot protection
  • Made with recycled materials
Cons
  • Expensive

Casetify is a highly reputable brand that's well-known for making solid cases with what feels like an endless amount of color options. No matter who you are or what sort of style you're going for, you'll be able to find a case that fits you.

While Casetify's Bounce Cases (seen later in this list) are the company's best for all-around protection, they can be pretty bulky. For those looking to ride the line between style and protection, the Impact Case will be able to do just that. Take note, however, that you'll need to spend a decent amount of cash to get one.

MOUS iPhone 14 Pro Max Case

Best MagSafe iPhone 14 Pro Max case

Pros
  • Solid color options
  • Lifetime warranty
  • MagSafe compatible
Cons
  • Pricey

Often, phone cases that are fully MagSafe compatible have the magnetic ring displayed front and center on the rear of the case, which, depending on your tastes, might be something of an eye-sore. Luckily, the Mous iPhone 14 Pro Max case doesn't feature the ring but is still fully MagSafe compatible.

It comes in a handful of solid color options, and buyers will be able to rest easy knowing that if it breaks at any time, their purchase is covered under a lifetime warranty.

Incipio Duo MagSafe Case

Best dual-layer iPhone 14 Pro Max 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 but a necessity for others.

Spigen Slim Armor with MagFit

Best kickstand iPhone 14 Pro Max case

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.

Official Apple Clear Case with MagSafe

Best clear iPhone 14 Pro Max case

Pros
  • Supports wireless charging
  • Clear design that shows off the iPhone design
  • 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

Best PopSocket iPhone 14 Pro Max case

Pros
  • Detachable PopSocket grip
  • MagSafe support
  • Subtle case design
Cons
  • Lack of color and design 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.

The interesting bit is that the socket has the ability to slide anywhere on the case, offering a great variety for MagSafe accessories. Although the color options are a little 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

Best sleek iPhone 14 Pro Max case

Pros
  • Sleek design with color options
  • Supports MagSafe accessories
  • Solid corner protection
Cons
  • Not the best drop resistance

The Ghostek Covert case sports a fantastic design, with colorful edges and a clear back that highlight the design of your new iPhone. 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 8 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

Best leather iPhone 14 Pro Max case

Pros
  • Classic leather design
  • Develops an aged look over time
  • Compatible with MagSafe accessories
  • 10-foot drop protection
Cons
  • Not everyone likes leather
  • A bit bulky

The Nomad Modern Leather case is a solid pick 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.

Along with the classic style, it also offers 10 feet of drop protection to keep your new phone safe from accidental slips. It's one of the pricier options though, but the leather is lush and sustainably sourced, making it a great choice for leather fans.

WTCASE PU Leather Case

Best fancy iPhone 14 Pro Max case

Pros
  • Classic leather design
  • Wireless charging
  • Color variety
Cons
  • Bulkier than other picks

If you like the leather look but don't want to spend a fortune on a real leather case, consider this faux leather pick available at a more budget-friendly price. The logo cutout is a huge plus for people who enjoy flaunting their iPhones.

On top of looking good, its raised edges also protect both the screen and the rear cameras from taking damage if dropped. You can also choose between four colors to match your style.

Snakehive Vintage Wallet Case

Best wallet iPhone 14 Pro Max 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 items 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

Best rugged iPhone 14 Pro Max 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.

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 massive and bulky size that goes hand-in-hand with a more durable case and its lack of solid color options.

Dbrand Grip Case

Best grip iPhone 14 Pro Max case

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

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," so it'll rest securely in your hands. Users also enjoy the tactile button response and solid protection against drops.

Otterbox Lumen Series with MagSafe

Best stylish iPhone 14 Pro Max case

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

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

Best drop-proof iPhone 14 Pro Max case

Pros
  • Supports MagSafe accessories
  • Highly durable
  • Customizable exterior
Cons
  • High price
  • 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.

An iPhone 15 Pro Max, lying on a wood floor with its display on.

It all started with the Apple iPhone 15 event and a host of exciting announcements, and from there, major carriers started offering some incredible iPhone 15 deals with virtually no delay. But if you're with one carrier, like T-Mobile, and you'd like to stay with that wireless provider or swap from another to that wireless provider, a list of deals from all over the place isn't really going to help. What you truly need is a list that specifies deals from the carrier you want, in this case, T-Mobile.

Since the big iPhone 15 event, major carriers have been clamoring over each other to offer the best iPhone 15 deals. Almost all of the models have been included in a special offer or two, but that also depends on your carrier of choice.
