Note: The cases listed in this article are available for all iPhone 14 models, including the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max. For simplicity’s sake, though, we’re only linking cases the size of the basic iPhone 14.
Keep It Apple: Official MagSafe Cases
Our friends at Apple are a bit two-faced. Just a month before the iPhone 14 release, Apple posted an ad stating that you don’t need a protective case for your iPhone. However, Apple continues to sell some of the best iPhone cases!
Anyway, I digress. If you want a high-quality case, Apple might be the way to go. Their official cases are slim, MagSafe compatible, and available in a variety of colors. You can even buy a case that matches the color of your new iPhone 14.
Budget Option: Best Buy Essentials Case
Some people don’t want to spend more than $30 on a phone case. If you’re feeling cheap, Best Buy sells its Essentials iPhone 14 case for just $10. That’s an unbeatable price, though this case isn’t MagSafe compatible.
To be clear, some people shouldn’t trust a cheap Best Buy Essentials phone case. More expensive options offer better shock protection and should last much longer. But if you handle your iPhone 14 with care and rarely put it in dangerous situations, a cheap case is perfectly fine. It will prevent your iPhone 14 from those dreaded “micro scratches”.
Extra Durability: Otterbox Defender Series XT
Protect your expensive iPhone with a durable, shock-resistant, MagSafe-compatible Otterbox case. The Otterbox Defender Series XT is specially designed to exceed “military-grade” drop protection standards, and to our surprise, it still looks pretty slick.
Notably, the Otterbox Defender Series XT comes with port covers to prevent dirt from getting into your iPhone 14’s Lightning connector. It also has a lanyard hole, which can come in handy if you use your iPhone 14 at work.
Crystal Clear: Totallee Clear Case
Our favorite clear case is now available for the iPhone 14. The Totallee Clear Case doesn’t have any unsightly marks and is only 0.02 inches thick. It also contains anti-yellowing agents to ensure years of use; this will outlast any of the other clear cases i have tried.
As you’ve probably guessed, Totallee cases are MagSafe compatible. And if you don’t want a clear case, Totallee sells its slim cases in various bright colors.
Super Slim Protection: Spigen Thin Fit Case
We love Spigen’s slim cases, which offer plenty of protection and style without bulking up your phone. And the company’s new iPhone 14 cases look fantastic, especially the Thin Fit case.
Spigen’s Thin Fit Case offers drop and scratch protection with “Air Cushion Technology”. It has clickable tactile buttons, plus raised edges to protect the screen and camera array. Unfortunately, Spigen only says that this case “works with wireless charging” and is not compatible with MagSafe.

Mount On Anything: Peak Design Everyday Case
Want more from your iPhone case? The Peak Design Everyday Case adds a modular mounting system to your iPhone 14. With the right accessories, you can use this case to mount your iPhone 14 to a bike, tripod, dash, motorcycle, or wall. It’s an amazing system and we’re glad it’s available for the latest iPhone.
The Peak Design Everyday case is MagSafe compatible. It’s made with a weather-resistant fabric shell and has tactile buttons for a premium feel. You can also buy the Peak Design Everyday case with an optional finger loop, kind of like a built-in PopSocket.
Leather All: Mujjo Wallet Case
Your expensive new iPhone deserves a premium case. The Mujjo Wallet case is made from Ecco gold-rated leather, which is self-healing and ages with a wonderful patina. It’s super slim, has a raised bezel to protect your camera assembly, and contains a soft microfiber interior to prevent your iPhone from scratches.
Two or three credit cards fit into the Mujjo Wallet case. And if you don’t want a wallet case, Mujjo sells their standard leather case for the iPhone 14. These cases come in multiple colors, by the way.
