The Best Protective iPhone Cases for 2020
Apple’s iPhone is a beautiful device, but beauty can often be fragile. If you work outside in all weathers, you like to go adventuring, or maybe you just drop your iPhone a lot, you should definitely think about how best to protect it from harm. If your iPhone takes a tumble and ends up with scuffs and scratches, or worse a cracked screen, the cost of a repair will be high. When the going gets tough, the smart buy a rugged iPhone case that can take the knocks. We’ve done the hard work for you and gathered together a list of the toughest options out there. These are the best protective iPhone cases.
One of our favorite iPhone cases by any measure, the Speck Presidio Grip is also pretty rugged. It can withstand drops up to 13 feet and is capable of handling falls and bumps thanks to the special Impactium interior that 8217;s designed to compress and disperse shocks. A matte finish enables the case to resist scratches, while the raised rubber ridges on top of the hard shell provide additional grip, (hence the name). A raised bezel will keep the screen in perfect condition when face down, cutouts are precise, and the button covers work well. There 8217;s also an antimicrobial treatment on this case to prevent any bacteria from building up. This isn 8217;t strictly the most protective case Speck currently offers, that would probably be the Presidio Sport, which offers 15-foot drop protection, but we think the enhanced grip this case provides makes it a better pick. After all, the best drop protection is not to drop your iPhone in the first place.
With an angular build that appears to include a metallic exoskeleton, you can tell this case is tough just by looking at it. UAG’s wares are the kind of cases a space marine would use, but they’re actually crafted from lightweight plastics, not metal. There are rubber enhancements on the corners to absorb impact shock, and also rubber feet to prevent your iPhone from slipping off surfaces when you set it down. It extends beyond the iPhone in all directions, so there 8217;s little risk of your screen or the camera lenses coming into contact with the ground. Textured sides enhance your grip and the oversized button covers are easy to find and make the buttons easy to press 8212; even if you have wet or dirty hands. This case also exceeds military drop-test standards 8212; it can withstand drops of 8 feet 26 times with no damage and comes with a 10-year limited warranty.
A lot of case manufacturers struggle to make rugged cases that look attractive, but not Mous. The new Contour line with its textured leather back is truly stylish, the cut is distinctive and original, and Mous has achieved this without comprising in any way on the protection it affords. A combination of polycarbonate and TPU provides seriously strong drop protection, a soft microfiber lining cushions your iPhone inside, and a beveled lip extends to safeguard the screen. There are minimal button covers, and you 8217;ll find accurate, angled openings for the port, speakers, camera, and switch. The leather back is treated to make it durable and stain-resistant and it comes in various colors, though we love the speckled black and white finish best of all.
This case offers drop protection from falls of up to 9.9 feet (3 meters) and it has a distinctive, practical design that will keep your iPhone safe from harm. A raised bezel ensures your screen never touches down and the case comes with a wrist lanyard that helps to prevents any drops from happening in the first place. Catalyst is known for its waterproof cases, which is where the dial design for the on/off switch originated. Catalyst does also still offer a waterproof case, though there isn 8217;t as much need with the latest iPhones being IP68 rated, and it doesn 8217;t offer as much drop protection as this rugged case. It will also keep dust and debris at bay. You can get this case in black, red, blue and orange, or clear varieties.
Cases don 8217;t have to be utilitarian and this eye-catching, translucent case proves it. The iridescent finish changes depending on the light and the color of the device inside. The hard, grooved back and flexible sides offer great grip, but if your iPhone should slip from your grasp there 8217;s no need to worry because this case offers drop protection up to 10 feet. There 8217;s an anti-scratch coating on the back to keep it looking good and wireless charging works just fine with the case on. Case-Mate also offers a lifetime warranty. Accurate cutouts and good button covers complete this tempting package.
Rugged cases can sometimes be on the expensive side, but the memorably named Supcase Unicorn Beetle is surprisingly affordable. Not only does it employ a classic combination of hard polycarbonate and shock-absorbent TPU, but it also sports a built-in screen protector and port covers. Every angle of your iPhone 11 Pro will be protected and under wraps with this case, and it comes with a holster and rotating belt clip into the bargain. The button covers are fine and the cutouts are accurate, but the screen protector is a bit of a weak point as it doesn 8217;t look or feel great. Still, there 8217;s no arguing with the value here.
Sporting a really tough, two-piece design this case from Griffin is ideal for outdoor adventures and designed to keep your iPhone safe at all times. It has been drop tested at up to 15 feet onto concrete, and it keeps your phone safely cushioned inside. The FortiCore material employed here is adept at dispersing impact shock. You 8217;ll also find button and port covers, so there’s no chance for dust, rain, mud, or snow to get in and cause any damage. Despite the chunky, rugged protection offered here, you 8217;ll find that wireless charging still works with the case on. If drop damage is your main concern, they don 8217;t come much tougher than this.
This molded shell case is a very tight fit indeed, but that may be part of the reason that it offers such excellent protection. The frame extends at the back and front to protect your iPhone from drops of up to 11 feet. For most falls and bumps, this case will be enough, but there 8217;s always a chance you 8217;re unlucky with the way it lands, so consider pairing it with a screen protector. The bumper is smooth and curved, but easy to grip, and you can choose from a variety of different finishes for the back, including carbon fiber, leather, wood, brushed steel, or a wide range of different artworks. You can also mix and match different button colors. The fit is perfect, but it can be a struggle to remove this case.
It may not be the most protective iPhone case on our list, but drop protection from falls of up to 6.6 feet will be enough for most people, and there are other reasons to take a look at this option. You can get the Impact case from Casetify in a wide variety of different finishes, including the snazzy iridescent one pictured. Not only that, but you can also customize your case with whatever text you like in a choice of fonts and positions. If you prefer an artistic design, Casetify has you covered there as well with all sorts of cute or trendy options and classic floral or animal prints. The cases are well-made with accurate cutouts, button covers, and a lip to protect the screen.标签：
