The Ultimate iPhone 14 Case Guide - Best Cases Ranked

12.16.2022

Wouldn’t it be a shame if your new iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro got covered with scratches or scuff marks? Worse, you can end up accidentally dropping the phone and cracking the front or the back glass. If you want to avoid a complete disaster waiting to happen, give your new iPhone 14 the protection it deserves.

The easiest and the most foolproof way to protect your new iPhone 14 is with a case. There are plenty of iPhone 14 cases from Apple and other 3rd party manufacturers. MagSafe integration has changed the iPhone accessories game completely. 

So, it begs the question of which iPhone 14 case is the best for your device. Come, let’s find out. 

Is it worth protecting your iPhone 14 with a case?

The iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Pro series have glass front and back. Glass being a very fragile material, can break quite easily despite Apple using ceramic shield protection for both the front and back glass. If the glass does crack on your iPhone, you will be paying an exuberant amount of money to get it fixed. 

Therefore, if you want to avoid excessive repair costs, get your iPhone protected with a case. Even if you take the utmost care of your phone, accidents can happen, and when the phone does eventually fall down on the floor, you will regret not having a case for protection. The case will also protect your iPhone from daily wear and tear. Hence, your shiny new phone will keep looking new for a long time. 

The only drawback of a case is that you lose the hand feel of the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Pro. However, some people might argue that the grippy texture case provides a better hand feel compared to the slippery glass back of the iPhone. iPhone cases can also add a lot of unnecessary heft to the device. 

Is the iPhone 14 case better than a skin?

The iPhone 14 skin from Dbrand or other reputable brands only protects against scratches and scuffs. The skin is only a thin paper-like sheet that is attached to the back of the iPhone, hence it does not add to the drop protection of the device. 

Where an iPhone 14 skin does fare better than the case is when it comes to aesthetics. Skins are available in different patterns, colors, textures, and materials. Some brands even offer customized skins for users. 

Long story short, an iPhone 14 case serves the purpose of protecting the phone from major cracks, whereas a skin only protects the iPhone 14 from scuffs and scratches. 

How to Properly attach Case to the iPhone 14

You might think that applying a case to the iPhone 14 is as simple as just chucking the case on and forgetting about it; however, I’m afraid it is not as simple. 

Before you apply the case to the iPhone 14, make sure you wipe the back with isopropyl alcohol wipes. The purpose of using isopropyl alcohol is to remove any dirt, grime, and oil that is fixated on the back glass

If you don’t follow this proper procedure, the oil and grime that is present on the back glass of your device will rub against the case and create marring and scratches. So, you will be doing more harm than good for your iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Pro. 

Best cases for your iPhone 

There are many iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone Pro MAX cases available in the market. Here are the top case picks for the different models of the iPhone 14. 

iPhone 14 Case 

Among the plethora of cases available for the iPhone 14, these are the top case picks for your iPhone 14 protected without compromising on the aesthetics. 

1. Apple iPhone 14 Silicon Case

The Apple iPhone 14 silicon case is a simple case that gets the job done. Being an official Apple product, it was great quality silicon that molds around your iPhone, providing enhanced grip. The case also comes with MagSafe integration and has a magnetic ring in the center. 

All in all, you cannot go wrong with the Apple iPhone 14 silicon case. It is available in plenty of different colors to match the shade of your iPhone 14 and costs $49. The $49 price tag puts it in the premium case category, but since this is an official Apple product, a high price tag is expected anyways. 

2. Smartish GRIPZILLA 

The Smartish GRIPZILLA is a versatile multi-purpose case that serves more purposes than just protecting your iPhone 14. This case comes with a MagSafe wallet attached to it. The wallet is an extra accessory that you can use to store all your most frequently used credit cards. 

The Smartish GRIPZILLA also has integrated indents where the fingers rest. These indents have a soft rubber texture that helps in gripping the iPhone. The Smartish GRIPZILLA is a bulky case, it has more protection than the Apple iPhone 14 Silicon case. The Smartish GRIPZILLA costs $30 and is available on the official Smartish website, Walmart and Amazon. 

iPhone 14 Pro Case

These are the top cases for the iPhone 14 Pro. 

1. Apple iPhone Leather Case

The iPhone 14 Pro leather case is an official Apple product. It has a high-quality leather stitched outer with a soft textured inside. The case has decent drop and crash protection. However, it is not the most durable. Leather being a soft and pliable material, is susceptible to scuff marks if you don’t take care of it. 

Despite using a leather outer shell, this case is entirely compatible with MagSafe. So, all the magsafe accessories work as standard. The Apple iPhone leather case costs $59, and it is available in five different colors. 

2. Spigen Ultra Hybrid (Magfit)

The Spigen Ultra Hybrid (Magfit) is a clear case, which, unlike other similar cases, protects the iPhone 14 Pro to a great extent. The Spigen Ultra Hybrid also protects the camera lenses due to its raised edges. 

The Spigen Ultra Hybrid has the benefit of being a clear view case. Therefore, it does not spoil the aesthetics of your brand-new phone. The Spigen Ultra Hybrid (Magfit) costs $49.99, but it can often be found discounted on major online retailers like Amazon. 

iPhone 14 Pro Max Case 

Here are the top iPhone 14 Pro Max cases that you can buy. 

1. Nomad Leather Case

If you know your leathers, you cannot go wrong with the Nomad leather case for the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Nomad uses full-grain leather from reputable tanneries like Horween. The Horween leather variant of the case costs $69.95, while the regular leather case costs $49.95. 

The leather used by Nomad has a smooth texture and is quite supple to the touch. The side of the case comes in a rugged and hard plastic material which enhances edge protection. All things considered, the Nomad leather case is a posh and premium case, especially the Horween leather variant. 

2. Dbrand Grip Case

If you feel like no case is providing you with the optimal grip you want, Dbrand has got you covered with the Grip Case. The Grip Case is made from special rubberized textured materials that feel secure and grippy. 

The Dbrand Grip Case comes in many styles. Users can choose from a vast library of different patterns and textures, so there is something for everyone. If you want a uniquely styled case that doesn’t look like anything else available in the market, the Dbrand Grip case is your best bet. 

Why do iPhone 14 cases have a circle?

Most iPhone 14 cases have a circle in the middle. The circle has a purpose, and it is not there just for looks. All variants of the iPhone 14 have MagSafe. If you aren’t in the know, MagSafe is a technology that uses an array of magnets arranged in a circle configuration for attaching accessories and chargers to the iPhone. 

iPhone cases that are compatible with MagSafe have this circular magnetic ring in the center. Therefore, it means that all cases that come with the circle ring can be used with MagSafe accessories such as the Apple MagSafe wallet.
