Otterbox wants to help protect your phone with the power of the Force, thanks to its latest series of Star Wars-themed iPhone cases: the Symmetry Series Star Wars Collection.

The cases come in a range of different designs, with a number of different Star Wars characters and graphics on them. For example, you could go for the nicely designed graphic of Rey and R2-D2 on Ahch-To, which features the Millennium Falcon in the background, or go for something a little more simple — a red case with the Star Wars logo on the back. Other designs include a graphic of Darth Vader, a stormtrooper, and the adorable BB-8 droid.

The cases themselves are available for the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus — sorry iPhone X users, you’ll have to stick with something else for now. The smaller cases for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 come in at $45, while the larger ones, built for the iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 8 Plus, cost $10 more at $55. That’s a solid chunk of change for a phone case — but the Star Wars branding and the good reputation of Otterbox may make it worth it for many people.

The Otterbox Symmetry Series has been around for some time now, and doesn’t just feature the new Star Wars cases. The series is built to offer a ton of drop protection while still remaining relatively true to your phone’s profile. This is an Otterbox — so don’t expect the most sleek cases out there — but at least you can rest assured that your phone is relatively protected. The already-available Otterbox Symmetry Series offers a pretty massive range of options, and it extends beyond iPhones to include the Samsung Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy S8, and Galaxy S8 Plus. In keeping with the Disney theme, Otterbox offers Mickey and Minnie Mouse cases, as well as plain cases for those that want something a little more subtle.

You can get the new Otterbox Symmetry Series Star Wars cases for yourself from the Otterbox website. As mentioned, they’ll cost $45 to $55, depending on your iPhone model.

There’s only one reason I’m still using an iPhone in 2023
A green iPhone 15 lock screen.

It's not an understatement to say I am an Android smartphone fan, as an Android phone has been my faithful companion ever since I started using the HTC Desire in 2010. I've bounced from phone to phone in the 13 years since, and I've experienced good and bad phones alike. But in all that time, I've never spent much time with an Apple iPhone. I'm obviously not unfamiliar with iPhones, having used them during my time as a tech writer grabbing screenshots, downloading apps, and testing games — but never having used one as my primary smartphone is something of a blind spot.

The Apple iPhone 15 is a good reason to end that. After all, if I'm going to use an iPhone, it might as well be Apple's latest. Two weeks after booting it up and transferring my data to it, it's been ... a journey. While I can see the iPhone 15 is an excellent smartphone, too many of iOS's idiosyncracies rub me the wrong way. However, there's one feature I've grown to really love, and I'm going to struggle to live without it.

Apple versus Samsung is perhaps the ultimate battle in smartphones, and the iPhone 15 Pro Max and the Galaxy S23 Ultra are the two brand’s top devices. If you want one, you may have also looked at the other, and even if not, who doesn’t want to see a tough camera battle between these two heavyweights?

This is what an iPhone looks like after a year with no screen protector
Ceramic Shield on the iPhone 14 Pro, with light to show scratches.

Apple says its Ceramic Shield glass over the iPhone’s screen is “tougher than any smartphone glass,” but how accurate is this statement? The Digital Trends Mobile team has each been using one of the iPhone 14 series models for the last year and two of us haven’t put a separate screen protector on, while the third member of the team has. Here’s how the screens have held up — and what we think about Ceramic Shield.

Ceramic Shield was first introduced by Apple on the iPhone 12, and it claimed it went “beyond glass by adding a new high-temperature crystallization step that grows nano-ceramic crystals within the glass matrix, increasing drop performance by 4x.” Apple worked with Corning, the same company that makes Gorilla Glass, which is used on many smartphones from other manufacturers, to produce Ceramic Shield. It’s found on all iPhone 12, iPhone 13, iPhone 14, and now all iPhone 15 models.
