iPhone 14 Pro cases tested

While I’m not convinced that every iPhone needs a case, most people want one for their new iPhone 14 Pro. The good news is that there is plenty to choose from. I tried over 50 iPhone 14 Pro cases to find out which ones are worth considering and highlighted the ones below. All of the above have been used and evaluated in the meat.

I wasn’t brave enough to do drop tests or investigate other risky situations with a new phone inside. You have to trust the manufacturers for that aspect I think. More than that, I looked at the fit and finish and all the interesting aspects of these cases. I’ve tried a few bad cases over the years and getting a secure fit with materials that feel good isn’t as easy as it seems. It is also the key to a positive case experience. As always, the prices listed may fluctuate over time.

Mujjo isn’t new to the iPhone case game, but not long ago the company declared a renewed commitment to it. This year, the Full Leather Case is MagSafe compatible. Both of Mujjo’s case models feature metal side buttons and a microfiber interior that adds a touch of elegance.

  • Full leather case for iPhone 14 Pro
  • Full leather wallet case for iPhone 14 Pro

The Full Leather Wallet Case is nice if you want to carry cards, but that’s not my style. However, the regular full leather case really is a great iPhone 14 Pro case – I love the fit and finish. The buttons are easy and precise to press. And the case felt premium to hold.

TYLER HAYES

Smartish has many options that might suit your specific needs, including those with wallets. My two favorite cases were Gripmunk and Gripzilla. Each of them has textured edges that make them less likely to slip out of your hand. I did notice that the interior fabric on the Gripmunk came loose a bit, but the exterior and the overall case itself felt good. Each of these also supports MagSafe.

TYLER HAYES

Nomad has several cases including Sport Case, Modern Leather Case and Rugged Case. If you really want to carry cards, there’s also a folio variant of the leather version. Nomad is quickly establishing itself as the go-to place for quality non-Apple iPhone cases.

  • sports case
  • Modern leather bag
  • Modern leather folio
  • Robust housing

The Sport Case is smooth, hard plastic on the back and softer rubber on the sides. Despite being a pretty standard phone case, it has a touch of personality. Everyone who saw it was immediately captivated. Also, this year’s Sport Case has been improved over last year’s, there are no more sharp edges. The Rugged Case is new and rated for 15 foot drops. It felt tough without being bulky.

Incipio

Both the Incipio Grip case (left) and the AeroGrip for MagSafe case have textured sides to help you securely hold your phone.
TYLER HAYES

I’m always fascinated by clear, transparent cases, but I’m usually never satisfied with any aspect of it. Incipio’s AeroGrip for MagSafe case might be the exception. It has a rubbery feel made from recycled material along the perimeter and textured lines on the left and right sides. It makes for an easy-to-hold case.

I was also intrigued by the use of Little in the grip X’s on the sides to reduce the chance of the phone slipping out of your hand. It’s unfortunate that the grip doesn’t have a magnet for MagSafe support.

casemate

Case-Mate’s Blox case (left) takes a phone with rounded corners and gives it straight corners, while the Pelican Ranger Black case includes nubs to help it lay flat.
TYLER HAYES

Case-Mate is the place to go if you want to give your phone a bold personality. Take the Blox case, for example. Even in the simple matt black color, the case immediately catches the eye with its non-rounded corners. I’m still not sure I liked the style of the Blox case, but I loved the feel of its materials.

  • Blox Matte Black
  • Pelican Ranger Black

Instead of putting a lip around the camera bump like most cases, including the Blox, the Pelican Ranger Black case puts little nubs on each corner of the back. This allows it to lie flat on a table and likely supports its rated 15-foot drop protection. It’s a nice idea.

Shop at Case-Mate from $40.

Speck’s Presidio2 Pro MagSafe Case (left) fits well and feels even better, while the Presidio Perfect-Clear MagSafe Case lets your phone’s color show through.
TYLER HAYES

The Speck Presidio2 Pro MagSafe could be the quintessential iPhone case. It’s thin, rated for 13-foot drop protection, and feels good in the hand. There’s nothing flashy about it, but it gets all the details right. The rubber button covers, for example, were all easy to press, and the ringer switch was accessible. The Presidio Perfect-Clear MagSafe Case doesn’t feel exactly like this due to its transparent nature, but it’s also worth considering.

otter box

iPhone 14 Pro cases
Otterbox offers a variety of iPhone 14 Pro cases, including the Commuter Series (left), the Defender XT Clear Series (middle), and the Symmetry Plus Series.
TYLER HAYES

Otterbox has long been known for their thick protective cases. However, in recent years attempts have been made to maintain the same level of protection while making thinner and more attractive cases. All four cases I tried below are marked Drop Plus, which the company says means “three times the number of drops compared to the military standard (MIL-STD-810G 516.6)”. What does that mean for you? These cases claim they can be dropped on any corner, back or face more than 75 times.

  • Defender Series XT Clear
  • Commuter series
  • Symmetry Series Plus
  • Otter Plus Pop Symmetry Series

All these cases are compatible with wireless charging. I really liked the feel of the Commuter series, but was disappointed that it didn’t support MagSafe accessories. The rubber strap that covers the Lightning port was also a bit annoying. But all cases fit well. All were comfortable to hold. Rubber and plastic didn’t feel cheap.

The case with the integrated pop socket was practical. If I were to add one to the back of my phone I might go for this built-in case. The pop socket piece is removable.

Buy at Otterbox from $39.95.

Casetify

Casetify custom phone case allows you to change the colors and add text.
TYLER HAYES

If you want more control over different parts of your phone case, Casetify offers a custom phone case for extra personalization. In addition to the color, you can choose the type of protection you want. You can also add eight characters of text and customize the letters on the back of the case. The custom options are fun, and the case I tried felt very durable.

Buy from Casetify from $68.

totallee

Totallee’s Color Case (left) and Transparent Case are extremely thin and minimal.
TYLER HAYES

It’s difficult for companies to stand out from the crowd when there are so many cases available, but Totallee has a few interesting ones. Both the Color and Clear cases are tailored for minimalists. The color case is a paper-thin plastic, while the transparent case is a slightly thicker TPU material. Both cases are unbranded and thin enough to work with MagSafe without the need for an additional magnet.

  • color case
  • Transparent case

I really appreciate what Totallee is aiming for with its ultra thin cases. They offer protection from junk getting on your phone if you put it on a counter or random surface. For people who don’t want a case but also don’t want their phone to bulk up, this is a good choice. Don’t expect either of these to protect your phone from a fall, but they should keep scratches at bay.

Buy at Totallee for $39.

Urban Armor Equipment

Urban Armor Gear iPhone 14 Pro cases like the Plyo series (left) and the Civilian series focus on protection.
TYLER HAYES

As the name suggests, Urban Armor Gear cases are all about protection. The Civilian series is rated for 20 foot fall protection, while both the Plyo and Lucent series are rated for 16 feet. In practice, that’s like dropping your phone off a second-story balcony. I was impressed that the cases offered this level of protection without being bulky.

  • Civil Series
  • Plyo Series
  • Lucent

I didn’t bother with the volume button protector in the Civilian case. It was hard to press reliably. The same design is used on the plyo case, but the silicone material makes it easier to press the buttons. The Lucent case had a thinner side panel over the buttons, making them easy to feel and press down.

moft

iPhone 14 Pro cases
The Moft Snap Case is available in three different color variants.
TYLER HAYES

If you’re looking for a basic iPhone 14 Pro case, check out Moft’s Snap. There’s nothing special about it, but that might be the whole point. While Moft is now getting into cases, the company is best known for its nifty MagSafe accessories like its combination stand and wallet. Of course, the accessories also match the housing. Personally, I’m a fan of the white color with clear sides.

Buy from Moft for $39.99.
