The iPhone 12 has only just been unveiled, but the world’s case manufacturers have already listed a wide bevy of covers for Apple’s latest smartphone. We’ve put together six of the best iPhone 12 cases in this article, ranging from the minimal to the more stylish. Regardless of your particular tastes, you should find a case to fit your new Apple phone.
Mujjo Full Leather Wallet Case for iPhone 12 and 12 Pro
It may be the priciest item on this list, but Mujjo’s Full Leather Wallet Case for the iPhone 12 is arguably also the most attractive. It’s a wallet case, yet unlike some wallet cases, it’s made with full-grain vegetable-tanned leather (as opposed to faux leather). It really does look high-quality, while Mujjo claims that its tan coloring will actually appreciate and improve with age, gaining character with every scuff and scratch. It’s not a typical wallet case in the sense of having a front cover that opens and closes, but it includes a slot on the back for a small number of cards.
Totallee Super Thin iPhone 12 Case
Here’s an iPhone 12 case that combines minimalist good looks with maximal functionality and comfort. It’s made of very thin matte plastic that gives the iPhone 12 a thickness of 0.31 inches, compared to 0.29 inches without a case. This makes it very comfortable to hold as well as very easy to put in your pocket or bag, while the matte plastic combines flexibility with enough hardness to protect against most everyday accidents. It comes in a choice of white, black, navy blue, and green, with each color providing a subtle richness of tone that complements the iPhone’s style rather than detracts from it. It’s also available in a completely transparent color made of clear plastic.
ESR iPhone 12/12 Pro Air Armor Clear Hard Case
For anyone a bit more active (or possibly more careless) than the average iPhone user, here’s a very rugged armor-style iPhone 12 case from ESR. It combines a scratch-resistant transparent glass back with a reinforced frame, which includes shock-absorbing corners and raised bezels. Even compared to ESR’s tempered-glass case for iPhone 12 (see above), it offers a high level of military-grade protection. The added bonus is that, in contrast to some overly bulky armor-style cases, it looks attractively streamlined and modern. Its back is also thin enough to support wireless charging, so it really is one of the best armor cases you’re likely to find for the iPhone 12.
Mous Limitless 3.0 iPhone 12 Case
It may be slim-fitting and sleek, but Mous’ Limitless 3.0 iPhone 12 case is possibly the sturdiest cover on this list. It has been designed using Mous’ own impact-absorbing AiroShock technology, which provides probably the fullest possible protection you can get from a case of its dimensions. Mous also sells it in a variety of durable materials, from walnut and bamboo to black leather and aramid fiber. It includes raised edges to protect the iPhone 12’s screen, while its cutouts and buttons retain the full functionality of the phone. One other nice feature is that it’s compatible with a range of magnetic accessories, such as a handy dashboard mount that’s useful for anyone who uses their phone as a GPS while driving.
Temdan iPhone 12 Case
Here’s a transparent case that doesn’t block out the iPhone 12’s good looks like so many other alternatives, letting you bask in the glowing beauty of Apple’s device while still protecting it. It’s made of colorless and see-through acrylic that has been fitted with shock-absorbing corners, with Temdan claiming that these give the iPhone 12 military-grade protection. It also comes with raised screen bezels and a camera frame, thereby guarding both of these components against scratches and other damage. Another welcome feature is its relative thinness, which not only makes it comfortable to hold but also makes it compatible with wireless charging.
ESR iPhone 12/12 Pro Echo Tempered-Glass Hard Case
Here’s another transparent iPhone 12 case, albeit one that’s made with a combination of tempered glass and polymer material. In other words, it’s noticeably harder and more durable than other transparent cases, providing a level of protection that usually comes from more bulky-looking covers. It also looks great, with ESR stating that its frame is yellowing-resistant. As with other cases on this list, it’s also equipped with shock-absorbing corners, which in most cases, will be enough to prevent damage from falls and drops. In addition to its entirely transparent model, it’s also available in navy blue and black, with the blue version offering a fully transparent back in combination with a blue frame.
