Best clear cases for the iPhone 11 in 2019
- Sling Cases
- Spigen Ultra Hybrid
- Speck Gemshell
- Apple Clear Case
- Just Mobile
Sling Cases bills its transparent case for the iPhone 11 Pro as a “ultrathin and ultra light” case, meant to offer everyday protection. The cases also feature a rear camera lens lip, which is meant to help add a bit more protection for the cameras on the back.
Here’s pricing for Sling Cases’ case options:
Spigen Ultra Hybrid
The Spigen Ultra Hybrid features a clear design so you can see the iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro inside. It has a TPU bumper and a durable PC back to keep the phone safe inside. It has raised bezels, which means the phone itself will be lifted slightly off flat surfaces.
As far as positive marks are concerned from owners, Spigen’s case is praised as being well-made and very form-fitting on Apple’s new iPhones. The overall durability is given high marks as well. On the other side of the coin, some owners say the case is too bulky, and that it can be slippery to hold as well.
Spigen’s case is available now from Amazon.
Here are the prices:
- Ultra Hybrid for iPhone 11: $11.99
- Ultra Hybrid for iPhone 11 Pro: $11.99
- Ultra Hybrid for iPhone 11 Pro Max: $11.99
The Gemshell clear case from Speck is built with “extreme durability” in mind. As such, it features MIL-SPEC drop test rating, which means it can survive a few drops, depending on the height. The Gemshell case features Microban antimicrobial protection, and has two layers of clear and protective cushioning.
Speck’s case also has raised bezels, and the company offers a one-year warranty as well. The cases are available today, with immediate shipping.
And the prices:
- iPhone 11 Gemshell clear case: $24.95

Apple Clear Case
Apple’s Clear Case is the best option if you prefer to keep things first-party. It has a lightweight design, so it won’t make your new iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro unwieldy for daily usage. The company says it puts its cases through “thousands of hours of testing”, and the clear case is no different, so it should be able to help protect your phone for quite some time (at least until you’re ready to upgrade to a new iPhone).
Apple says the case is made from “optically clear polycarbonate and flexible TPU materials”, which should make it a solid case that’s comfortable to hold day-in and day-out. It has an improved grip thanks to the design and the way it perfectly fits the new phones, and it supports wirelessly charging. It’s scratch-resistant as well, and the materials are optimized to prevent yellowing.
Early buyers that like Apple’s clear case for the new iPhones praise how well it fits, how it feels in the hand, and its sturdy design. The support for wireless charging is a bonus as well. Others say that the case is simply too expensive.
Apple’s clear cases for the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro are available today.
Here’s how the pricing breaks down:
The Lumen Series offers a clear case to show off the iPhone inside, but also offers a “splash of color” around the edges for good measure. There are four options available to buy from Apple’s website right now (but fastest delivery is between September 19 and September 26): Pink, Red, Black, and Blue.
It has a slim profile, not adding a lot of bulk to your phone while still protecting it. The back is recessed to avoid scratches and other impairments, with raised bumpers on the edges to add even more durability and protect against drops.

Another section says the case is safe from 16ft with its drop protection. While another says the Crystal Palace “is drop resistant up to 13ft”.
