Apple’s Silicone case has been around for a long while now. A regular staple for Apple’s accessory lineup. It offers plenty of body coverage for the back and sides, but it won’t cover the front. It offers raised edges for the display, though, and the back camera setup as well.
It has a silky, soft-touch finish that shouldn’t slip out of the hand with daily use. On the inside there’s a soft microfiber lining to help keep the phone safe from scratches. The silicone case offers built-in magnets to support Apple’s MagSafe feature, so you can leave the case on for wireless charging.
The Silicone Case is available for each of the new iPhone 13 models. It’s available in Marigold, Abyss Blue, (PRODUCT)RED, Chalk Pink, Blue Jay, Clover, Midnight, and Pink Pomelo.
The Leather case for Apple’s iPhone 13 lineup is available now in array of colors. This case is made from specially tanned and finished leather, with a soft-to-the-touch exterior that will gain a natural patina over time. Inside, there’s a soft microfiber lining to protect the handset from scrapes.
The Leather case supports MagSafe, can be used for wireless charging while it’s equipped on the phone, and offers up plenty of protection without adding any bulk. Apple is quick to note that this is a leather case, so it will show creases and marks, along with the natural patina.
The Leather case is available now from Amazon in Dark Cherry, Golden Brown, Sequoia Green, Midnight, and Wisteria.
Spigen Rugged Armor
This Rugged Armor case from Spigen is all about the protection. It has a carbon fiber design with shock absorption built in. It’s an overall flexible TPU case with an interior spider web design to help protect against drops. The raised edges will protect the rear camera setup and the front display.
The Spigen brand champions the Air Cushion Technology to help protect the device from drops. It also has tactical buttons for easy use. The Rugged Armor case from Spigen is available for each of the iPhone 13 models.
The Nano Pop case from Caseology has a silicone feel, keeps things lightweight, but still offers up plenty of protection for your iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max. Caseology says this case will remain lint- and dust-free even after time spent in the pocket.
Each case features two-tone colors, raised edges for the display and rear camera setup. No mention of MagSafe support, though, so be aware of that. It does say the case supports wireless charging, though. It has an overall slim profile so it won’t add any bulk, and a snug fit with the phone. The case offers military-grade drop protection.
The Caseology Nano Pop case for the iPhone 13 lineup is available now from Amazon in Blueberry Navy, Avo Green, Black Sesame, Light Violet, and Peach Pink.
Spigen Thin Fit
Another option from Spigen, this one’s all about thin protection. The case is a hybrid structure of PC and TPU, and features Spigen’s Air Cushion Technology to help protect against drops. Raised edges help protect the display, as well as the rear cameras.
It has a matte finished coating, it’s lightweight, and has tactile buttons. The polycarbonate body helps prevent scratching.
The Thin Fit case from Spigen is available now from Amazon in Apple Mint, Black, Navy Blue, Red, and Pink Sand.
Over the years, Mujjo has made a name for itself for making some of the best cases out there for the iPhone lineup, thanks to their materials and craftsmanship. This slim leather case for the iPhone 13 lineup is no exception. It offers up raised bezels around the display and the rear camera setup, which should help keep the device protected for daily use.
The premium tanned leather is naturally aging, and it’s soft to the touch. The rich colors are enhanced with aniline oil, and the full-grain leather will naturally beak in and age with use. Meanwhile, inside the case there is a 1mm thin satin-like microfiber lining to help protect the phone while it’s in the case.
The leather case from Mujjo is compatible with MagSafe wireless charging and accessories as well. It’s available now from Amazon in tan, black, and Monaco blue.
This folio case from Nomad is made from natural Horween leather. It will develop a more rugged looking patina over time and after use. This is a folio case, which means it will actually help to prevent damage not only on the back, but also on the front when the case’s front flap is closed. There are also raised edges around the rear camera array to help protect them as well.
Inside, there are dedicated slots not only for up to three cards, but also a slot designated for cash as well. Nomad says the case is tested with up to 10 feet drop protection. The case supports MagSafe wireless charging as well. There are a pair of lanyard hookup points on the case for good measure.
Nomad does suggest getting a screen protector in an effort to prevent micro scratches when your case is closed and the cards may rub up against the display. So keep that in mind. This case is available now in Rustic Brown and black.
