Only 1,000 of these aluminum, laser-etched Millennium Falcon cases will be made

Given how many Star Wars-related products there are, you probably feel pretty burned out, even if you’re a real hardcore fan. But wait, because Casetify has a brand-new, very varied, and really attractive range of cases and accessories centered around Star Wars. The top product here is a limited-edition, laser-etched phone case featuring the Millennium Falcon, and it looks excellent.

The case is made from aluminum with a schematic-style top-down view of the famous freighter etched on it, and there will only be 1,000 made. You’ll need to have an iPhone 13 model or an iPhone 12 model, and you’ll have to be prepared to splash out $149 for one. That’s definitely a lot of money to pay for a case, but given how few will be made, you’ll probably never see another one.

If you miss out or don’t want to spend that much, the same design will be available on one of Casetify’s Impact, Ultra Impact, or Compostable cases, which are available for a more reasonable $40 to $70 depending on your phone. This means it’ll be available for more phones too, with the iPhone 13, iPhone 12, iPhone 11, iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 7 model ranges, plus the iPhone SE, the Galaxy S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra, all covered.

Beyond the Millennium Falcon design, Casetify has commissioned special designs for other cases based on the original movie posters for A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi. In addition, there’s a great Tatooine Binary Sunset design option, too. The retro-inspired artwork looks excellent in the press photos, with plenty of color and instantly recognizable Star Wars characters and themes.

Outside of phone cases, Casetify is also making Star Wars-centric Apple Watch straps, MagSafe charging pucks, an AirPods case, MagSafe Battery Pack cases, and Apple iPad cases, which really show off the artwork. Prices vary — $52 for the Apple Watch strap, $25 for the Battery Pack case, and $72 for the iPad cases — and Casetify will sell them through its Co-Lab app, through its online store, and in its retail locations. Unsurprisingly, they will all be released on May 4, but if you want a chance of getting the limited edition Millennium Falcon case, you should sign up for priority access at Casetify now.

Which $1,000 phone has the better camera — iPhone 14 Pro or Galaxy Z Flip 4?
iPhone 14 Pro and Galaxy Z Flip 4 camera modules.

The iPhone 14 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 are very different smartphones. Try to fold the iPhone like the Z Flip 4, and it’ll all end in tears. Yet if you’ve got $1,000 to spend, these two sit alongside each other on the shelves, and that makes comparing them an interesting proposition. Both are very tempting, just for different reasons. Can the camera performance help make any decision easier?
iPhone 14 Pro vs Galaxy Z Flip 4: camera specs
A pair of 12-megapixel cameras live on the back of the Galaxy Z Flip 4, both covering the main and wide-angle duties. The main camera has optical image stabilization and an f/1.8 aperture, while the wide-angle camera has a 123-degree field of view. There’s no telephoto camera, but Samsung provides a 10x digital zoom feature. However, it doesn't make it a big deal and has not added a shortcut to the camera app.

The iPhone 14 Pro has a 48MP main camera with its second-generation optical image stabilization and an f/1.78 aperture, which is joined by a 12MP wide-angle camera and a 12MP telephoto with 2x and 3x optical zoom. On the software side, Apple loads its new Photonic Engine, plus Deep Fusion and Smart HDR 4 features. The 12MP selfie camera also makes use of these features, while the Samsung phone has a 10MP f/2.4 camera at the top of the screen.

Will your iPhone 13 case fit the iPhone 14?
The Kate Spade case, showing the back and the design.

If you've decided to buy the iPhone 14, it's likely you will also need a solid case to keep your new device safe. Even though all of the iPhone 14 models feature a durable Ceramic Shield front cover to keep your device safe, it may not be enough to protect your phone from heavy impacts, long drops, and constant scratches.
We've already done the hard work and rounded up the best iPhone 14 cases available in the market right now, and we've also given you a guide to the best iPhone 14 screen protectors for extra security, as well as guides for each of the other new iPhones as well. But maybe you're wondering, "Do I really have to spend money on a new case after buying an $800 iPhone?" or "Can’t I just use my iPhone 13 case?" 
We feel you. But the short answer is: for some models. Here's the longer answer. 
Will the iPhone 13 case fit the iPhone 14 device?

The iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 look quite similar, and the specs are pretty close in terms of size and dimensions, so it's possible the two devices can share a case. The iPhone 14 is slightly thicker than its predecessor, but the overall differences are minor enough that the iPhone 13 case is likely to be functional enough for your new iPhone 14 model. Some manufacturers are already selling a common case for iPhone 13 and iPhone 14, so if you're migrating from iPhone 13 to iPhone 14, you can keep the old case. Of course, if you feel the fit isn't good enough, you can always invest in a new case.

Yes, you will want this metal Millennium Falcon iPhone case
Casetify's Star Wars themed Impact Case, and limited edition Millennium Falcon case.

We were pretty excited when Casetify announced its new Star Wars collection of phone cases and accessories at the end of April, and we’ve now got our hands on the star of the show, the Millennium Falcon limited-edition case, to see if our anticipation was justified. It’s a thing of beauty and well worth a closer look, but what about the rest of the collection?
Millennium Falcon case
Made of aluminum with a laser -tched image of the Millennium Falcon, there are only 1,000 of these cases in existence so getting one may be a challenge. Now that we’ve got one in our hands, we can see if it’s worth the effort. Let’s start with the design itself. The top-down, schematic-style design of the Falcon itself looks great, and has real texture to it. The aluminum under the design has a brushed effect and catches the light in an attractive way.

A Star Wars logo joins the outline of the Falcon, but gets a little lost in the design, although the text and the rebel insignia down the side is far more legible. The sides of the case are smooth to the touch and don’t have a brushed finish, but still provide more than enough grip so the phone isn’t in danger of slipping out your hand. I could do without the rather uninspiring “This case is made from 50% recycled materials” claim on the side of the case though.
