Apple's iPhone 13 series is immensely popular, but if there's one thing you need to worry about after buying the biggest and most expensive model in the bunch, it's keeping it safe and protected. The iPhone 13 Pro Max can cost up to $1,599 for the 1TB model, so for many users, throwing in the extra $20 or $50 for a good case to protect the expensive beast makes sense.

Best iPhone 13 Pro Max cases, summarized:

Nowadays, almost all people use cases to protect the devices they carry everywhere. However, when it comes to such accessories, there is plenty of choice, as these come in many shapes and forms. Some are more classic and discrete-looking, some want to offer you the best possible protection, and some cases want to be more of a fashion accessory. Whatever the case of the... case, you'll need a good selection to make the best possible choice, especially if you've spend more than a thousand bucks on a phone, which as we said is the case with Apple's iPhone 13 Pro Max.

When it comes to choosing the case for you, you might be looking for the cheapest option there is, or one that offers great value, as it is both affordable and quality-made. We've separated this article in three sections for the three type of iPhone 13 Pro Max cases we've listed. These are clear cases, soft cases, and rugged cases. Most of these do support Apple's MagSafe technology for wireless charging that uses magnets to attach the charger to the phone.

Say you want to showcase your iPhone 13 Pro Max in its full glory without covering it up with a matte, opaque case. Apple once again has you covered with this clear plastic case.

As with the previous two, this one will protect your iPhone's back and sides from daily wear and tear, and has MagSafe magnets, which in this case are fully visible. MagSafe is a really cool feature of the iPhone, which makes for a much easier connecting when wireless charging.

The case itself is scratch-resistant and specially coated to prevent yellowing over time with higher-quality materials than the previous Spigen one. Still, it is much more expensive, so if you change cases often you might be better off saving the extra money. But if you are the opposite, it is better to splurge more now and not have to worry about wear and tear.

This slim and light Spigen case for iPhone 13 Pro Max will make your phone a lot grippier and much less likely to slide off surfaces. That's because of its rubberised coating and soft TPU material that covers the sides of the phone. 

According to Spigen, it's packed with military-grade technology, namely what the company calls Air Cushion Technology for anti-shock protection, which basically means drop protection. In addition, you also get the standard daily wear and tear protection from scratches. Protection is key when owning such an expensive smartphone, so you better take that into account.

How to choose the right iPhone 13 Pro Max case?

Whether you want a thin and lightweight iPhone 13 Pro Max case to protect from scratches, or a rugged, tough case to keep your iPhone safe and looking like new for years to come – the options listed here are some of the best you can choose. If you're into clear and very thin cases, we recommend the Spigen one, as it is much cheaper than the Apple alternative. However, having MagSafe, Apple's offerings in this list raise a fair question, and that is whether the extra money is worth it in the long run, as this should be of a higher quality. Having MagSafe is also important, especially if you're someone that already uses this Apple wireless charging system daily and finds it convenient. 

If you're someone who drops their phone often, or one with a more active lifestyle, then you're probably wondering which rugged case to choose. Out of the ones we've listed here, we strongly recommend the Spigen Nitro Force. This case has big protective bumpers and tough looks, which indicate how strong it is. Cases that combine stylish looks with good protection are Spigen's Liquid Air Armor case an all of Apple's offerings featured on this list.

As more great iPhone 13 Pro Max cases from reputable makers come out, this list will grow, so stay tuned!
