As with any iPhone, there’s hundreds of brands making cases and covers for the iPhone 12. With that in mind, we’ve crafted this buyers guide to help make choosing the right case for you easy.
As mentioned above, there’s always a large number of third party brands creating cases for the iPhone 12, including popular brands such as Tech 21, Ringke, Speck and Nomad.
Case Type & Materials
Case types normally differ mostly by the materials they are made from and vary in the level of protection they provide. Thin cases are a great choice if you prefer a non-bulky case, as they retain the form factor and lines of the iPhone 12, however it’s worth noting the level of protection provided with thin cases is generally low. On the other hand there are Leather cases which provide extensive levels of protection. Often multi-layered, tough cases safeguard against drops and impacts, in addition to shock. Some tough cases have even designed to ensure they exceed military drop tests. New to the market are MagSafe cases which have been designed with a magnetic array integrated into them and so allowing them to align correct and attach securely when used with a MagSafe charger. They also work with other MagSafe accessories such as car holders and wallets.
Can I still fit a screen protector if I have a case on iPhone 12?
Screen protectors can still be fitted to your iPhone 12 when you have a case. Certain cases like the Olixar Sentinel come with a glass screen protector included and so fit seamlessly together. Stand alone screen protectors are also available with various types available including tempered glass and film screen protectors.
