Best iPhone 13 cases
The new iPhone 13 series is here at last, available for pre-order, and Apple has finally shrunk the iconic notch that jumpstarted the whole era of smartphone designs all the way back in 2017, when the iPhone X was announced.

This could mean that the time when we see a notchless iPhone has started to slowly approach us, but it also means you'll need new cases made specifically for the brand new iPhone 13 models, in case you intend on buying one.

In this article, we give you our top recommendations for the best iPhone 13 cases, so you don't have to sift through the numerous options yourself. We will also make sure to update this list in the future when new cases show up.

Official iPhone 13 clear cases


Well, if you were hoping for a "clearer" clear phone case from Apple this year, disappointment awaits you.

This iPhone 13 case is thin, light, and on its surface, there is scratch-resistant coating.

Will the iPhone 13 case fit the iPhone 13 Pro?


No. iPhone 13 cases do not fit the iPhone 13 Pro. Even though the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro sport the same 6.1-inch display and dimensions, the camera island on the 13 Pro is physically larger, meaning that cases for the two phones are not interchangeable. If you're buying an iPhone 13 case, make sure that it's designed to fit your exact iPhone 13 model.
