Since the big announcement in September 2021, iPhone 13 and the series have been all the rage. And when you do get a phone that’s sleek, pretty, and pretty cool, you ought to cover it with the best.
The iPhone 13 series has the iPhone 13 Pro, Pro Max, and the Mini versions. Here, we’re focusing on the best cases for your iPhone 13. These phone covers are the premium options in the market, and therefore, stand out as the finest cases for your iPhone 13.
Silicone Case With MagSafe by Apple
When we say the ‘finest’ cases, nothing can top the phone’s home brand itself. Apple has some of the best cases for your iPhone 13. The material variations in leather and silicone cases are up for preference.
In this guide, however, we vouch for the silicone case a little more than the leather case. Leather, as we know, ages, and shows signs of aging. Silicone, on the other hand, is long-lasting and durable. The perfect deal if you’re looking for a fine and timeless case for your iPhone 13.
Apple’s silicone cases for the iPhone 13 are available in some super exclusive colors. The one in the photo is the ‘Blue Jay’ edition. There’s Marigold (yellow), Clove (green), Chalk Pink, Abyss Blue, Pink Pomelo, Midnight, and Red.
Like the title says, this case is MagSafe. It’s compatible with all MagSafe accessories, chargers, and Qi-certified chargers too. The silicone case has a silky touch to it on the outside and soft protective microfibre on the inside. So, it looks great, feels greats, and provides great protection to your iPhone 13 as well.
Razer Arctech Case
Any passionate gamer would understand the hype and the value of a Razer product. Razer not only produces and sells gaming equipment, software, and electronics, but they also have some kickass phone covers.
If you want Razer’s signature black and neon green to embrace your iPhone 13, while you show off your gaming persona at the same time, you must consider Razer’s Arctech case.
Razer’s Arctech case offers soft and tough protection to your iPhone 13. A layer of antimicrobial material on the case boosts ventilation – quitting the need to worry about your iPhone 13 heating up under any circumstance.
Though the case is soft and flexible, it’s quite grippy and alert when it comes to accidents. Made with TPE (thermoplastic elastomer), the case reinforces this material on the corners, providing added drop protection and durability. The Arctech case is compatible with MagSafe charging and Qi wireless charging.
Monarch Kevlar Series by UAG
If you’re looking for a fine but super tough and rugged case for your iPhone 13, UAG presents a case that’s worth the steal – the Monarch Kevlar Series.
UAG features a line of attractive yet rugged phone cases that can appeal to anyone who’s looking for something simple yet rough. If this one’s not up to your taste, you can check out their Pathfinder series.
The Monarch Kevlar Series is a blend of kevlar black and red indicators across the design. It packs double the punch with five protective layers and added military-grade protection that’s twice as heavy-duty as the average. This UAG case can take a 20-feet fall.
Urban Armor Gear manufactures this series of cases with an impact-resistant core, reliable screen protection, and traction grip. With all this engineered into a case, you may expect it to be heavy. But the Monarch Kevlar case is shockingly light as a feather.
Parallax by Caseology
Sober geometric designs never run out of style. If you’re on the hunt for a subtle but premium case, then Caseology has this piece of elegance for you.
The Parallax series offers an external 3D hexagonal covering and an inner protective layer with concentric rectangles. It has four soothingly colorful options as well – Ash Gray, Midnight Blue, Burgundy, and Sage Green (the one in the picture above)
The distinctive Parallax case by Caseology is a TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) make with grippy sides and raised camera and screen protection. Thoughtful and unique ergonomics powered by the 3D Hexa Cube design on this case offers double the grip on the phone alongside military-grade protection if the phone were to ever fall off-grip.
3 Card Case by Bellroy
Bellroy has some of the most vibrant collections of iPhone covers. Their cases are quirky, productive, and colorful.
The 3 Card Case by Bellroy is a sustainable leather case that can accommodate 3 cards into a seamlessly-integrated section. However, the card enclosure would keep this case from being MagSafe or wireless efficient. In such cases, you can opt for plain Bellroy cases with no card slots.
Both the mentioned Bellroy cases feature some of the best eco-tanned leather layered with a protective coat of the Swiss HeiQ HyProTecht antimicrobial technology. The interior lining of the case is soft microfibre with a spare sim and a pin socket.
The exterior of the case is a merge of leather and polymer that extends into the skillfully tucked cardholder in the 3 Card Case. The fabric used in both cases is sustainable, light, and durable, alongside environmentally-conscious leather.
