The best leather iPhone 11 Pro Max cases and covers

Bigger is better, or so they say. For iPhones, one of the biggest, baddest models you can get these days is the iPhone 11 Pro Max, even if it has been superseded by the iPhone 12 Pro Max. Naturally, you’ll want to protect that large screen and expensive investment. We covered some of the best overall cases for the iPhone 11 Pro Max, but if leather is your thing, here are some great protective case options for the smartphone made of premium leather materials.

As a wallet case, it comes with a number of card slots, while it also incorporates a magnetic closure so you can effortlessly close it without having to worry about it flipping open by accident.

Handmade in Europe using genuine nubuck leather that ages over time to result in a unique patina finish, each case is also hand-stitched for a sophisticated look. The inner section is made from soft and smooth leather, with a secure, rubberized TPU holder that adds shock-absorption and additional protection against drops and falls. Store up to three credit cards (or other cards) inside, along with other papers in the inside note slot, like cash. Flip the case over to use it as a viewing stand while watching movies on the go.

Made of soft, handmade PU leather and a gold electroplated frame, this case is perfect for anyone who wants their leather fix without having to buy a full-on wallet-style case. It’s lightweight and fairly thin, although it offers a good level of grip, thanks to its luxury texture. The combination of PU leather and underlying TPU means that it will stay in one piece after falls and impacts, while the leather back will stand up to scrapes. Importantly, it also includes precise cutouts for the iPhone 11 Pro Max’s buttons and ports, while it’s easy to slip on and off the phone.

Apple Leather Folio

Opt for the regal aubergine finish, which comes with a soft microfiber lining. You’ll get iPhone-specific features, too, such as opening the case to automatically wake the phone and closing it to put it to sleep. It has a space to hold cash, small notes, and cards, and the case can stay on the phone while wirelessly charging.

It’s a slim fit design case that offers simple protection along with good grip, so the phone won’t slide out of your hands. A raised lip lift further helps protect the phone’s screen, and a camera cutout means you can still comfortably snap photos or shoot video while the phone is housed inside. It supports wireless charging, so you can plop the phone down on a Qi-enabled charging surface without having to take it out of the case.

Mous Case Limitless 3.0

The iPhone 15 Pro cameras may not be as ridiculous as we thought
iPhone 15 Pro CAD render

We’re definitely in iPhone rumor season, as reports have been coming in nonstop. But the latest iPhone 15 Pro report from 9to5Mac seems to corroborate that the mute switch will indeed be replaced with an “Action Button,” and the camera bump may not be as huge as we previously thought.

These new details for the iPhone 15 Pro come from newly detailed CAD renders from MFi (Made for iPhone) accessory makers. This is important to note since accessory makers need to have such information ahead of time in order to produce products to go with the new devices beforehand.

One iPhone 14 feature just saved three people’s lives
Person holding iPhone 14 searching for Emergency SOS satellite.

Apple launched its Emergency SOS via Satellite feature with the launch of the iPhone 14, and we're already seeing it save lives. This weekend, three Brigham Young University students were left stranded while exploring the canyons of the San Rafael Swell Recreation area in Utah and used the feature to call for help.

According to KUTV, the students became stranded in deep water during their time canyoneering and were unable to get out for several hours resulting in hypothermic shock to begin setting in. Due to the rural area they were in, the group wasn't able to call for help using regular cellular data. Luckily, Stephen Watts, one of the students, had an iPhone 14 and was able to use the Emergency SOS via Satellite feature to text authorities and share their location with them.

Lockdown mode for iPhone

Apple takes pride in selling a promise of privacy to its customers, and to a large extent, it lives up to that promise. As cyber criminals devise new ways to target phones, with tools as sophisticated and virtually undetectable as the Pegasus spyware, Apple also keeps fortifying its devices.

One step in that direction is Lockdown Mode, an “extreme” safety measure that was introduced with iOS 16 last year. The feature blocks a lot of vectors through which a zero-click, zero-day spyware like Pegasus finds its way inside a phone. From phone calls and message attachments to shared albums and network profiles, Lockdown Mode limits those risk routes.
