The best cases for iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max

The new iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models are here and with them comes a new wave of anxieties around scratching or breaking them, so here are the best cases to keep that new jewel protected.

With glass on the front and back and either aluminum or stainless steel around the edge, no matter how tough Tim Cook says the iPhones are, they are scratch magnets. Not only that, but with no real protection around the corners of the screen glass, that ceramic shield isn’t going to withstand many drops.

When picking the best covers, we care about three things: aesthetics, durability, and price. We don’t want to recommend some over-the-top monstrosity that makes your phone virtually unpocketable. We’ve handpicked some sleek, stylish options that you won’t feel embarrassed to pull out of your pocket.

Picking up an iPhone 14? Here are the best deals.

And while we’re recommending some cases, let’s pay attention to protecting that display. Screen protectors are available at plenty of price points with varying degrees of quality. It could be tempting to get that dirt cheap plastic film, but stop right there!

Chances are they will not be the correct size to fully cover your screen and thanks to the cheaper material, they are not actually scratch resistant.

So what’s our recommendation? Personally, I always go for one of two.
