Best MacBook Air (2018) Cases

The new-look MacBook Air arrived back in October 2018 and was then updated again in July 2019, although there is no real difference between the two models (aside from a TrueTone screen in the newer model).

But there is a huge difference between the 2018/2019 MacBook Air and the earlier MacBook Air, the design of which hadn't changed in almost a decade. The new MacBook Air is smaller and lighter, the bezels around the screen are thinner, and there are three colour finishes to choose from: gold, silver and Space Gray.

If you have a new MacBook Air you will want to keep it protected and looking fresh for as long as you can, which is why we've looked into the best cases for the latest MacBook Air. You can also find some options on Apple's website, but these start at £39.95/$49.95.

Whether you're looking for something cute and stylish, rugged or a simple shell case, there's something on this list for you.

Inateck 12.9in Laptop Sleeve

The Inateck Sleeve is a classy option and one we've recommended before. It fits the MacBook Air and even the 12.9 in iPad Pro, which means you could swap it if you wanted to. 

The felt absorbs shock and prevents scratches, while the material lining the inside is mould-proof and wear-resistant. Plus for less than £15/US$15 it's a bargain.

 

Kuzy MacBook Pro 13in Sleeve

Here's another sleeve option if you're after a sophisticated look. It's available in a broad range of colours, including a vibrant teal and pink.

The top flap closes magnetically, and a soft divot in the opening allows you to easily remove the MacBook Air from the sleeve – and impressively, a cutout on the side allows you to charge your Mac while it's still in the case.

There's also an additional pocket at the back of the case where you can store papers and documents.

Available for £23.99/£21.99 on Amazon.

 

Supcase Unicorn Beetle MacBook Pro Case

The Unicorn Beetle from Supcase (short for super case) is a style we often recommend. It's strong, sturdy and reliable.

The base is fully vented so your laptop doesn't overheat. It combines TPU and polycarbonate and comes with an all-round bumper for maximum protection. Plus, the transparent casing will allow the natural colour of your MacBook Air shine through.

Available on Amazon for £26.99/US$29.99.

 

Fintie MacBook Air Clear Case

If you prefer a hard case without any distracting protective ornamentation, this clear hard case from Fintie may be the right for you. It's lightweight and fully vented so your MacBook won't overheat.

Fintie also has a number of cute decorative options like this paisley one for £13.99.

The clear Fintie case (pictured) is available on Amazon for £10.99/US$13.99

 

Mosiso MacBook Air 13 Case

Similar to KECC, Mosiso also offers beautiful graphic cases that come with keyboard covers – except you also get a screen guard for additional protection. The front cover is also translucent so the Apple logo can shine through (depending on which style you choose). The brand offers a 1-year warranty if you run into any trouble.

Available on Amazon for £19.01/US$19.99.
