Best iPhone cases

Whether you're looking for style, protection, added functionality or all of the above, this round-up features an iPhone case to suit you. Here, we round-up some of the best cases for, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 5S and iPhone 5 we've seen.

Apple's iPhone cases 

From £25
Available from Apple

First up is Apple's own offering. The company offers a range of cases for all of the iPhones it currently sells, so that's the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE (which also fits the iPhone 5 and 5S).

Silicone cases are available for the iPhone 6/6s and iPhone 6 Plus/6s Plus, both offered in charcoal grey, stone, antique white, blue, turquoise, white, midnight blue, lavender, pink, orange or red.

Apple offers Leather cases, too, in a variety of colours and are availble for each iPhone Apple sells. They're made with genuine leather and have a soft, microfibre lining to protect the interior of your iPhone too. They're precision crafted to fit the iPhone, which means they're really snug. This also means it can be difficult to remove them, though.

Apple's cases cover the back and sides of the iPhone, leaving only the camera and front the device exposed. This means that the colour of your iPhone is disguised though. If you've got the gold iPhone with one of these cases protecting it, you'll hardly know it's gold at all, which seems a shame.

Read on for more of our favourite iPhone cases for every model, or visit our round-ups for a closer look at more cases for each model: iPhone 6s cases, iPhone 6s Plus cases, iPhone 6 cases, iPhone 6 Plus cases, iPhone 5S cases and iPhone SE cases.

Best iPhone cases: Apple Smart Battery case

Price: £79
Buy from Apple Store here

Apple has also launched a new iPhone 6s/iPhone 6s Plus case called the Smart Battery Case, which is available in White or Charcoal Grey.

It looks a bit peculiar - it's just like the silicone case shown in the previous slide but with an extra portion that bulges out from the case and houses the battery, which should give you up to 25 hours more power.

What's interesting is that Apple has added an intelligent battery status that works with the case to show you how much charge you have left on the phone and case, and that information can be found on the iPhone lock screen and in the Notification Centre.

You can find more iPhone battery cases and battery packs here.

 

Best iPhone cases: Proporta & Ted Baker Collection

From £25
Available from Proporta

Proporta has teamed up with fashion house Ted Baker London to bring iPhone owners a collection of stylish cases to protect their iPhone 6/6s, iPhone 6 Plus/6s Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 5S or iPhone 5. There are also iPad versions of the Ted Baker cases available, and there are many different designs aimed at both men and women and ranging in price from a £25 to £80.

Best iPhone cases: Native Union Clic case for iPhone

From £35
Available from Native Union.

We love the Native Union Clic Wooden Cases for iPhone. They're hand crafted and precision engineered from solid wood, so each has a unique grain pattern. There are six different colours to choose from, each extremely stylish. We particularly like the Olive/Walnut design but there are also Marine/Cherry wood, White/Cherry, Blossom/Walnut, Coral/Cherry and Black/Walnut.

 

Best iPhone cases: Casetify iPhone cases

From £20
Available from Casetify

There are hundreds of designs to choose from for each iPhone at Casetify, one of our favourite case-makers right now. Have a browse but be prepared to fall in love with more than one. The good news is, you can order additional backplates with your favourite designs that you can swap into your case to reflect your mood.

Casetify also offers the option to creat a custom case with photos of your own, and there are plenty of options for fans of superheroes, TV and more too.

 

Best iPhone cases: Otterbox Symmetry

From £29.99
Available from Otterbox.

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 colours and designs and Otterbox has made the series available for all of the iPhone models.

 

Best iPhone cases: Cygnett WorkMate for iPhone

Price: £14.95
Available from Cygnett.

Cygnett's WorkMate case for iPhone 6s is designed with shock absorption in mind, made with a three layers. The Cygnett's WorkMate Case outer layer has a high-grip silicone inlay and anti-slip ridges around the edge, too. It's available in three colours: Blue, Red or Black.

For even more iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus cases, see our round-up of the best iPhone 6s cases here.

 

Best iPhone cases: Belkin's Lego Cases

Price: £14.99
Buy from Belkin.

Belkin sells the fun Lego Builder case for iPhone 5, iPhone 5S and iPhone SE - every big kid's dream. Turn your iPhone into a buildable brick while also protecting it from bumps and scratches. It comes in yellow and black.

You can read our full review of the Belkin Lego case for iPhone here, and see the awesome GIF we created.

We're keeping our fingers crossed for an iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus version of the Lego Builder case, but Belkin hasn't launched one yet.

 

Best iPhone cases: Goo.ey Case for iPhone

From £20
Available from Goo.ey.

This clever case for the iPhone allows you to stick your iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, or iPhone SE to any flat, glossy surface. Goo.ey omes in several colours and designs, 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.

It covers the back and sides of the iPhone, but you'll want to pop a screen protector on the front of your device if you're worried about scratching the screen.

 

Best iPhone cases: SurfacePad for iPhone

Price: £35
Available from Amazon.

Designed for iPhone owners who want to protect their device but would prefer no case at all, the SurfacePad is an ultrathin cover that's also very lightweight. While it won't protect your iPhone from a fall or spillage, the SurfacePad will prevent scratches without disguising your iPhone or adding bulk. What's more, the case also acts as a landscape stand for your handset, making it ideal for watching videos or making FaceTime calls.

Available in four colours, the SurfacePad could be just the case to put your mind at rest, while keeping your iPhone's minimalist design intact.

 

Best iPhone cases: Slim Folio Case by Covert

Price: £14.99
Available from Amazon.

The Slim Folio case by Covert is a nice option for those who want a wallet-like case without the bulkiness that often comes with it. This faux leather case has two card holding places, a non-slip viewing stand, and full access to all buttons and ports. The folio has a sleek magnet closure, but the strap tends to get in the way when viewing in portrait mode or even just using normally. This folio comes in pink or light blue.

The Slim Folio will fit the new iPhone SE or the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S. For more iPhone SE cases click here.

 

Best iPhone cases: Mophie Space Pack

Price: £129
Available from Amazon.

This is an exciting product from Mophie. The Mophie Space Pack is a battery case for iPhone that comes complete with built-in storage. Available to for iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S Plus or iPhone SE or 5s, the Space Pack is available in 16- 32- or 64GB models in black, red, gold 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 up to 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. Cool, right?

I've personally had so many cases that it's hard to keep up. For working out SlimClip Case at SlimClipCase.com by the people at WonderfulThingsFactory.com is still my preferred solution.As far as style alone is concerned, LuxBox Case at LuxBoxCase.com is my choice.
