Apple iPhone SE Leather Case

Apple's iPhone SE case comes in black and an attractive Midnight Blue, and is made from tanned leather and a soft microfibre lining on the inside. 

It’s not too offensively priced for an Apple item that's made of leather either! It’s a good snug fit, which probably means you won't want to take it in and out too often, but it’s slim, so you’ll probably forget it’s even on after a while.

tech21 Evo Mesh Case for iPhone SE

tech21 is a great company that specialises in excellent protective cases for tech products, and the iPhone 5s and SE are not exceptions. We recommend the Evo Mesh case, which boasts the company’s FlexShock system – basically a segmented, rubberised bumper that absorbs shock if and when you drop your phone.

 

Caseable iPhone SE cases

Caseable makes to-order cases for tons of different tech products. We've picked out this Ice Blue as an example - it's a snap on case that protects the back and sides of the iPhone, while being grippy enough to stop its sleek body slipping around.

Check out the full Caseable range here - you can even send in your own designs to be put onto their accessories. 

 

Snakehive Wood Back case for iPhone SE

This affordable, well mace wooden case from Snakehive is a smart choice for the iPhone SE. We really like the bamboo (pictured) but you can also opt for rosewood, walnut, cherrywood or even zebra wood if you're feeling exotic.

Also compatible with the iPhone 5 and 5s, the case offers sturdy drop protection and access to all ports and buttons.

Check out the rest of Snakehive's iPhone SE case range here.

 

Pantone Universe Clip-On Case

These cases have proven very popular for the iPhone 5s and surely will continue to be so given their compatibility with the new iPhone SE. The design is very effectively simple; available in many colours, the block on the back has a white section below where it has the logo and the colour number and name of the product.

 

Belkin View Case for iPhone SE

If you want a decent case for protecting your iPhone but don’t want to hide its premium look and feel, a case like this from Belkin is a good option. 

The outer rubber bumper design is available in several colours but the transparent back means you can show off that shiny new rose gold iPhone SE without damaging it.

 

Belkin LEGO Builder Case for iPhone SE

This case from Belkin awakens the big kid inside us here at Macworld, and there’s no shame in sporting these for your iPhone SE or 5s! It does make your phone a tad bulky, but hey, it’s Lego, so it’s fine.

It’s available in a few different colour details, but the Lego itself is always blue.

 

Otterbox Symmetry Cover Case for iPhone SE

The Otterbox Symmetry case is both good-looking and super-durable. It has a dual material construction for extra iPhone protection, but doesn't add too much bulk.

It's available in a fab range of 14 colours and designs, and is pleasingly slim for such a protective case.

 

Cygnett Alternate Duo Colour Protective Case

We rather like Cygnett's Alternates series. The cases reflect the iPhone's two-tone style, and also use the same anodised aluminium as its backplate, giving you the opportunity to switch up the colour of the top and bottom portions of your device. 

While at work, you might prefer to have an all black or white case for your iPhone, but when you're out of the office you could add a splash of green, blue or pink to suit your mood.

 

Casetify iPhone SE range

Casetify offers a seemingly endless range of iPhone 5s and SE cases with free shipping to the UK. Its range is a tad on the feminine side, but with so many to choose from we think there will be a design for everyone.

The design is a simple snap case, and there’s also an option to design your own, so get creative with it!

 

Gooey Case

This clever case for the iPhone 5s or SE allows you to stick your iPhone to any flat, glossy surface. Goo.ey comes in several colours, and it also doubles as an anti-theft device, as it'll stick to tables and bars to prevent an opportunist quickly swiping your iPhone.

 

Twelve South SurfacePad for iPhone SE

This case by Twelve South, which also makes the popular BookBook range for iPhone 5s and SE, is a great choice if you want a protective case that keeps your phone elegant and slim.

 

Twelve South BookBook for iPhone SE

We love the quirky BookBook range from TwelveSouth, which has been available for a while but is still going strong for iPhone 5s and SE. Designed to look like an antique book, the genuine leather flip case has a built-in camera hole, and provides space for cards, notes, ID and other bits and bobs. 

 

Pipetto Classic Flip Case for iPhone SE

If you’ve just invested in an iPhone SS you might want to keep it protected with British case maker Pipetto's Classic Flip Case. A simple design allows easy access to screen and all ports.

 

Mophie Juice Pack Helium for iPhone 5

Mophie's popular Juice Pack Helium battery pack case for iPhone 5s and SE now has five stylish new colours: blue, purple, pink, green and red. Already a good-looking case, the battery-booster now has added appeal, and that's before we've mentioned that it can provide up to 80 percent more battery life to your iPhone.

Of course, in addition to more power, you'll also get protection from bumps, knocks and scratches for the back and sides of your iPhone.

 

Mophie Space Pack for iPhone 5/5s/SE

This is the world's first battery case for iPhone that comes complete with built-in storage. Compatible with iPhone 5s or SE, the Space Pack is available in 16, 32, or 64GB models in black or white. If you've got a 16GB iPhone and find yourself regularly running out of space, here's your solution. 

You'll be able to add an extra 16,000 photos, 14 hours of video and 9,000 songs. What's more, the Space Pack could double the battery life of your iPhone.
