Official Apple Leather Case with MagSafe

Pros
  • The complete Apple experience
  • Slim fit
  • Built-in magnets for MagSafe charging
  • Choice of five colors
  • Genuine leather
Cons
  • Expensive compared to some other cases

If you want the best iPhone case available, why not go right to the source? Apple makes its own line of cases and covers for all its phone models, and the Leather Case with MagSafe gives your iPhone both extra protection from scratches, drops, and impacts, combined with a stylish flair. The case snaps into place and fits snugly over your iPhone without adding bulk. Built-in magnets precisely align with your iPhone. Made from tanned and finished leather, the exterior feels soft and develops a natural patina as it wears. The perfectly aligned magnets make wireless charging faster and easier than ever. When it’s time to charge up, just leave the case on your iPhone and snap on your MagSafe charger or set it on your Qi-certified charger. It comes in five gorgeous, deep jeweled colors.

Totallee Super Thin Case

Pros
  • Minimalist slim profile
  • Raised lip around the camera
  • Available in several colors
Cons
  • Drop protection could be better

For those who seek the minimalist look, Totallee’s “barely there” slim profile case lets the original look of your iPhone 13 Pro come through without gimmicks, branding, or bulk in either clear or matte styles. It keeps your phone looking like new by protecting it from scratches and minor drops and features a raised lip around the camera to prevent damage to the lenses. The clear case — made with a soft, grippy material that absorbs impact — is completely transparent with virtually invisible protection. The matte case, the thinnest option, is made of hard, flexible plastic. Each variation comes in several colors or tints and works with all manner of wireless charging.

Incipio Grip MagSafe Case

Pros
  • Compatible with MagSafe accessories
  • 14 feet of drop protection
  • Lightweight and slim
  • Grippy texture to prevent drops
Cons
  • Quite expensive

A personal favorite, the Incipio Grip for MagSafe case ticks all the right boxes. It has MagSafe magnets inside, a really grippy texture on the sides, flush-mounted button covers that are very easy to press, and is drop tested to 14 feet yet adds very little extra weight to the phone. The lips around the screen and camera add protection too, but the case never makes your iPhone 13 Pro feel ungainly or look ugly. The clear plastic shows off the color you chose, but the case is also available in solid colors if you want something different. Incipio promises it’s scratch-resistant and won’t discolor over time either.

Kate Spade Defensive Hardshell Case with MagSafe for iPhone 13 Pro with white and pink flowers on a clear case.

Kate Spade New York Defensive Hardshell Case with MagSafe

Pros
  • Clear case shows off your phone
  • Up to 10 feet of drop protection
  • Eye-catching floral design
  • In-built magnets for MagSafe accessories
Cons
  • Only available in one design

Fashion designer Kate Spade has made two excellent, really eye-catching cases for the iPhone 13 Pro, and we’ll start with this one, the Hardshell Case for MagSafe. What makes this one special is not only the inclusion of MagSafe magnets but also the gorgeous white and pink Hollyhock design on a clear case that shows off your iPhone. The hard plastic case has been drop tested at 10 feet, has a lip around the camera cutout, and has very easy-to-press buttons that are almost flush with the sides.

Kate Spade Protective Hardshell Case for iPhone 13 Pro in clear with multicolored and foil floral detail.

Kate Spade Protective Hardshell Case

Pros
  • Clear case shows off your phone
  • Up to 12 feet of drop protection
  • Antimicrobial coating
  • Wide range of designs to choose from
Cons
  • Not compatible with MagSafe

Want a Kate Spade iPhone 13 Pro case but don’t need MagSafe? This one is for you. This case comes in a wide range of designs, but we love this floral one which uses gold reflective foil for parts of the branch and flower motif on the back. The clear case shows off your phone and offers up to 12 feet of drop protection. It also features an anti-microbial coating, along with a great fit and easy-to-press buttons.

Coach Leather Slim Wrap Case

Pros
  • Genuine leather will age nicely
  • Soft interior lining prevents scratches
  • Good level of protection
Cons
  • Quite expensive
  • Only comes in black

Coach has produced several cases for the iPhone 13 Pro, including a folio version, but this leather-wrapped case is our preferred choice. It uses the familiar Coach branding to good effect on the back of the case, giving it both visual identity and plenty of grip. It adds some bulk to your phone, but this is good protection, and the genuine leather should age very nicely too. The phone’s buttons are all left open so there are no problems with pressing them, and the soft inside of the case won’t scratch or damage the back of your device.

Survivor Endurance for MagSafe case for iPhone 13 Pro.

Survivor Endurance MagSafe Case

Pros
  • Up to 14 feet of drop protection
  • Grippy sides help prevent drops
  • Slim and lightweight
  • Built-in magnets for MagSafe accessories
Cons
  • Color options may not be to all tastes

Survivor’s case moves away from the bulk associated with most rugged cases with a slim profile, a lightweight construction, and a decent degree of style. It’s still drop tested at 14 feet though, all the buttons are covered, there’s a substantial lip around the camera module and screen, and there are grippy, textured sides. Add MagSafe magnets to the mix, and this is an excellent all-rounder for those who want to protect their phone but not compromise on design or add a mass of extra weight.

The front and back of the Olixar Clear case for the iPhone 13 Pro.

Olixar Clear MagSafe Case

Pros
  • Clear case shows off your phone
  • Slim and lightweight
  • MagSafe compatible
  • Good everyday protection from scratches and minor bumps
Cons
  • Drop protection could be better

Olixar isn’t one of the big boys of cases, but it’s happily pumping out pretty good cases at low prices. This clear case is a great choice if you’re looking for a thin, clear case that doesn’t hide your iPhone 13 Pro away behind thick bulky plastic and doesn’t add a large amount of thickness to your device. The gel material it’s made from won’t make it the most protective case you’ve ever used, but it will offer good everyday protection against scratches, dirt, and minor bumps. A raised edge around the display and camera lenses also means they won’t rest on surfaces, which is a nice bonus. Oh, and it’s completely MagSafe-compatible, too.

The back of the Ghostek Covert case for the iPhone 13 Pro.

Ghostek Covert MagSafe Case

Pros
  • Up to 8 feet of drop protection
  • Antimicrobial coating
  • Clear case resists yellowing over time
  • R2x silicone corners for added protection
Cons
  • Design may not be to all tastes

Want a unique rugged case that also looks good? Ghostek’s new Covert series case looks great, with a design you won’t find anywhere else, and it’s extremely protective as well. The minimalist and lightweight design doesn’t lack protection, using hard polycarbonate, shock-absorbing TPU, and R2x silicone corners to insulate your new iPhone against a range of hazards. It’s drop-tested to 8 feet, has an anti-microbial coating, and has been treated to resist yellowing as it ages. Sure, it doesn’t have the waterproofing of some of its other Ghostek kin, but it’s also a lot cheaper and offers a lot of protection against other, more solid threats.

Ted Baker Jasmine Anti-shock Case

Pros
  • Stylish case for the fashion-conscious
  • 360-degree protection
  • Attractive floral design
  • Slim and lightweight
Cons
  • Not the best drop protection on offer

The iPhone 13 Pro is sure to be the phone of choice for the fashion-conscious, and if that describes you, why not double down on your style with this attractive Ted Baker case? The shiny polycarbonate Rose Gold rear clips onto your iPhone, while the cover folds around the front, keeping your display safe. The Jasmine design lends a chic look to your already stylish device, and the bulk is kept to a minimum, keeping your iPhone slim and light.

The front and back of the Incipio Stashback case for the iPhone 13 Pro.

Incipio Stashback Card Case

Pros
  • Stash cards and cash in the hidden sliding compartment
  • Up to 14 feet of drop protection
  • Antimicrobial protection
Cons
  • A bit expensive
  • Not the most exciting design

Incipio is one of the big beasts of smartphone accessories, and that’s very obvious when you look at the Stashback’s spec sheet. It offers amazing 14-foot drop resistance, plus an anti-scratch and anti-microbial design and a sliding compartment on the back to stash away cards, tickets, or even a little spare cash. On the downside, it’s certainly expensive — and just a little boring. The design is reminiscent of a battery case (not usually the best-looking cases), and the compartment adds quite a lot of extra thickness. Still, even with those in mind, the exceptional protection and extra utility offered by the compartment mean this case has to be on your list if you’re looking for a tough case with more to offer.

The front and back of the Vena Legacy case for the iPhone 13 Pro.

Vena Legacy Card Holder Case

Pros
  • Sleek, slim, lightweight case
  • Space for all your cards and cash
  • RFID protection for your cards
  • Fold-out kickstand
Cons
  • A little expensive
  • Not as protective as Incipio's Stashback case

Another card-holding case, but this time with a difference. Vena’s Legacy case focuses less on protection and more on offering a sleek, slimmer way to keep your cards with you. It’s equipped with RFID protection for your cards, and there’s room for up to two cards in the wallet section. The wallet section also levers out to become a kickstand, making it handy to watch videos on the move. We mentioned it wasn’t as strong as the Incipio case above, but the Legacy is still pretty strong, thanks to dual-layer construction and Cornerguard technology. Tactile buttons feel good, and while the price is a bit high, it’s worth it for a high-quality case.

The front and back of the Ringke Fusion-X case in clear with camo design for the iPhone 13 Pro.

Ringke Fusion-X Rugged Case

Pros
  • Cool camo pattern
  • Hard polycarbonate back protects from scratches
  • TPU bumper provides drop and impact protection
Cons
  • Unconventional design may not be for everyone

A mainstay of our phone case round-ups, Ringke’s Fusion-X case should be on everyone’s watch lists where cases are concerned. It has an unconventional design, which may put some off, but if you’re happy with the camouflage pattern and tough black borders, then the Fusion-X is definitely for you. The polycarbonate back provides a hard barrier against scratches, while the black TPU bumper helps to absorb impacts and drops. There’s even an attachment point for a lanyard, just in case you really, really hate drops — but then, who doesn’t?

UAG Monarch Tough Case

Pros
  • The ultimate protection
  • Five-layer case topped off with premium leather
  • Up to 2x military standards for drop protection
  • Reliable brand for extreme protection
Cons
  • Expensive, but you get what you pay for

You want pure protection? Then you’ve got pure protection when you pick a UAG case. The Monarch case is one of the toughest cases UAG offers, with five layers of protection, including premium leather. It’s tested up to two times military standards, has a raised bezel that protects the screen and camera lenses, and has some heavy-duty button covers that keep those vulnerable areas safe and sound. Sure, it’s the most expensive case on this list, but UAG has a name you can rely on, and the case’s strength speaks for itself.
