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.

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.

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.

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.

Apple may release a completely new type of iPhone in 2025

The iPhone 16 isn’t even out yet, but that hasn’t stopped rumors about the iPhone 17 from swirling already. One of the latest comes from The Information, and it claims that a thinner iPhone 17 may be released in 2025 as a completely new addition to the lineup. It’s reported to be code-named D23 internally, and it’s expected to be a major redesign — potentially as big of a redesign as the iPhone X was in 2017.

The main changes for the D23 iPhone are a very thin body and a smaller cutout in the display. There’s also some talk that Apple may replace the Dynamic Island with a pinhole cutout, and we may see that as soon as the anticipated iPhone 16 launch this fall. Other changes might include moving the rear camera from the upper-left corner to the top center. The screen could fall somewhere between the 6.1 inches of the iPhone 16 Pro and 6.9 inches of the iPhone 16 Pro Max.
