Best iPhone 8 cases

The iPhone 8 is here, bringing with it a new processor, wireless charging, and (naturally) a hefty price increase.

Wireless charging is the standout new feature, but it comes at the cost of a return to the old glass back, which means buying a protective case will be even more important for the iPhone 8 - though bear in mind that we haven't yet tested if any of these cases interfere with wireless charging, and some thicker cases might.

It's also worth noting that the 8 and 8 Plus are fractionally bigger than the last generation - most iPhone 7 and 7 Plus cases should fit them, but there's the chance that some form-fitting cases won't.

It's also worth noting that the 8 and 8 Plus are fractionally bigger than the last generation - most iPhone 7 and 7 Plus cases should fit them, but there's the chance that some form-fitting cases won't.

 

iPhone 8 Silicone Case

Likely to be the first thought for most people looking for an iPhone 8 case, Apple's official silicone case is designed to fit either the 7 or 8, and will offer protection from bumps and scrapes - if not serious drop protection.

It's also available for the iPhone 8 Plus.

 

Peel case for iPhone 8

If you want an iPhone 8 case that keeps it safer while adding minimal bulk, then Peel is the case for you. This is one of the thinnest cases on the market, and Peel's aim is for you to forget it's even there - they don't even include their own logo, so the design is still all Apple's own.

 

Ted Baker Glitter Hard Shell

If you're looking for something a bit more bling, this case from Ted Baker might do the job. It's also available in Rose Gold, and there's a variant for the iPhone 8 Plus too.

Speck Presidio Grip for iPhone 8

This case from Speck should offer rugged, reliable drop protection for the iPhone 8, while the textured grip should help prevent those drops in the first place - and we think it doesn't look half bad either.

Also available for the iPhone 8 Plus.

 

Olixar Gel Case for iPhone 8

If you want a little bit of extra protection but really, really don't want to lose the look of your iPhone, Olixar's ultra-thin gel case might be a good bet. It adds minimal bulk, and is transparent so won't affect the design.
