The best leather iPhone 11 cases and covers for 2020

Your new iPhone 11 is among the most expensive smartphones available, and if you were willing to drop that kind of money on a smartphone, then you may be willing to fork over a little extra for an equally-impressive premium leather case to protect and showcase it. While iPhone 11 cases come in many styles, colors, and materials, there’s nothing like leather to add a touch of sophistication and luxury to your phone. We picked out an assortment of the most stylish and highly-rated leather iPhone cases. Oh, and if you just happened to buy the iPhone 11 Pro version, have a look at our leather case collection for that model.

Apple Decoded Leather Card Case

Top of our list is this leather card case from Apple, and there are a few reasons why it’s a favorite. Firstly, it comes in two classic colors: Brown or black, and it’s crafted from premium, full-grain aniline leather, which makes it feel great in your hand. Your iPhone’s buttons are cocooned in leather, too — and this case will develop a beautiful, unique patina over time. Raised bezels protect the screen, and the inside of Apple’s case features a satin-like geometric microfiber lining that helps keep your new phone safe from scratches. It’s a slim case that won’t add bulk to your phone, with a handy slot on the back for your credit card or ID.

Nodus Shell Case II

The Nodus Shell Case II is crafted from vegetable-tanned Italian leather, and its ultra-slim contours are ideal if you like to stow your iPhone in your pocket. Its shock-absorbing polycarbonate core helps keep your phone protected against drops and bumps, and there are leather covers for the power and volume buttons. Nomad sells the Shell Case II with a Micro Dock, which can adhere to almost any surface and allows you to magnetically dock your iPhone. The case has built-in magnetic shielding, so the magnets won’t interfere with Qi wireless charging, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or anything else. It’s available in Ebony Black or Chestnut Brown.

Nomad Rugged Leather Tri-Folio Case

Leave your wallet at home with Nomad’s Leather Tri-Folio case. Expertly crafted from raw, vegetable-tanned Horween Leather, from one of America’s oldest tanneries based in Chicago, each case will develop a unique and beautiful, aged patina over time.

It’s also compatible with wireless charging.

Mous Contour Case

For something a bit different, pick up this speckled black leather card case from Mous. Also available in red or brown, its AiroShock technology provides excellent impact protection, while raised edges at the top and bottom ensure your phone screen stays safe from harm. It’s a sleek little number, hugging the curves of the iPhone 11 without adding bulk — and it’s wireless-charging compatible, so you won’t have to take the case off every time your phone needs juice.
