Every year, Apple boasts about a new, groundbreaking technique to fortify the glass on its iPhones or to reinforce the metals in its frame.
Yet, it's no secret that a single tumble can still spell disaster for these devices.
This year's iPhone 15 Pro models sport a titanium touch, making them a tad lighter. But let's be real, they're not invincible. They're still delicate glass masterpieces. So, what's the game plan? Get a case! While they might not be an absolute shield against mishaps, coupling them with a screen protector is a savvy move to safeguard your pricey gadget. Especially if you gave AppleCare a miss. And just a heads up, your old iPhone cases won't fit the newbies.
Nomad Rugged Case With MagSafe This year, the Nomad Rugged Case stole my heart. Its contoured thermoplastic urethane bumper is a treat for the fingers. Among the plethora I tested, its aluminum buttons, especially for the Action button on the iPhone 15 Pro, stood out. The polycarbonate frame is robust, and it doesn't turn into a fingerprint magnet. It sits perfectly flat, no wobbling. Plus, the raised edges ensure your screen doesn't kiss the table. The MagSafe compatibility is a cherry on top. Just a tiny gripe - why are the vibrant blue and orange shades only for the Pro? For those who mount their phones a lot, the Nomad X Peak Design variant with the SlimLink mounting system is a winner. From tripods to bike mounts, it's a game-changer.
The Caudabe Sheath The Sheath is another gem, sleeker than the Nomad. The textured back is a delight, and the MagSafe support is on point. The buttons are super tactile. Opt for the version with a physical Action button; it's a better choice.
Spigen Ultra Hybrid For value, Spigen's Ultra Hybrid S takes the cake. The adhesive film ensures no dust gets trapped during installation. The buttons are spot-on, MagSafe works like a charm, and the kickstand is a nifty addition. Just remember, clear cases can be fingerprint magnets, so keep those wipes handy.
CaseFace Custom Series If clear isn't your style, then the CaseFace custom series is a great option. With a wide variety of designs and colours, it offers protection and style at a low price point. You can check out their range of cases here.
