Best iPhone XR cases

The iPhone XR is one of the new additions to the iPhone X range, which is available to pre-order from 19 October and available in stores 26 October. Here's everything you need to know about the iPhone XR before it officially arrives.

Starting at £749/$749 it's not as expensive as its iPhone XS and XS Max counterparts but that doesn't mean it's not worth protecting. It boasts a large 6.1in LCD screen, a glass back, and an aluminum body (available in an assortment of colours) – these are, of course, all elements we would want looking fresh for as long as possible. 

Here are some of the best cases available for the iPhone XR (though some are available to pre-order before the release). We've rounded up everything from the rugged and protective to the decorative and stylish for the iPhone XR.

Incase Protective Clear Case for iPhone XR

 

Mous Limitless Case for iPhone XR

Mous is a longtime favourite of ours. The brand offers high-quality and well-designed cases that meet the demands of hectic, accident-prone lives. Plus, its cases are beautiful.

Mous's Limitless 2.0 case range for the iPhone XR comes in several finishes: Carbon Fibre, Walnut, Leather, Bamboo and Shell (pictured).

In terms of protection, Mous uses its trademark AiroShock technology, which insulates the precious iPhone XR with tiny air pockets and "cross linking polymer chains". Together, according to Mous, these act like springs to absorb shock and disperse it, leaving your phone unaffected from drops.

Mous is currently offering a discount when you pre-order.

You can find Mous iPhone XR cases on Amazon as well. 

 

Greenwich Folio Case for iPhone XR

Greenwich cases might easily be the most expensive cases in our round up, but if you can afford it, its protective prowess combined with its classy old-world charm more than make up for it.

Greenwich cases are handcrafted with genuine German Bull Hide leather, but under this soft exterior you get the protection of a Carbon fibre panel. Its also has a hidden magnetic plate so you can mount your phone in the car.

Speck Presidio iPhone XR Case

Speck Presidio cases are often a staple in our round ups. With 10-foot drop protection, double-layered insulation, scratch resistance, and even an anti-microbial treatment that stops bacteria growth, we'd be hard-pressed to exclude it.
