With the new Apple iPhone 13 now available, it's time to pick out a phone case to go along with your new phone, so your pricey new device can be protected from drops -- and in some cases, protected from bacteria, too.
There's no need to worry that your new iPhone 13 case won't fit your phone. OtterBox, Casetify, Case-Mate and more trusted iPhone case manufacturers have cases available that fit the unique design of the Apple iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPhone 13 mini phones. (Note: Some small design changes in the new models will render iPhone 12 cases incompatible.)
Ahead, you'll find cases at a variety of price points worth considering for the new iPhone. These cases offer varying levels of protection and different designs, from simple to statement.
