With many different styles around, there’s something to suit every aesthetic. Take a look below at some of the best iPhone case brands around, including a wide range of choices and price ranges, so there’s something for every occasion.

Otterbox is best known for its Symmetry Series and Defender Series Pro. All its cases focus on being fairly sleek and slim with the Symmetry Series being ideal for a little extra protection while the Defender Series Pro is more rugged and capable of dealing with some heavy blows and drops. Both offer an antimicrobial additive that helps inhibit microbial growth so your case is protected from a lot of common bacteria.
