Well, it’s that time of the year again. New iPhone release week. You have just gone and spent a small fortune on the latest and greatest from Cupertino and now you want to keep that bad boy safe right? While not all iPhone accessories are made the same, here are our suggestions for the very best cases you should buy to protect your investment.
When style, luxury, and class are the name of the game, Noreve is on a whole other level.
Making everything from phone, tablet, laptop cases, and more, they are designed in the beautiful St. Tropez in the South of France. Noreve as a company believes in one fundamental principle – Everything is based on quality – and from that, the company prides itself on using quality leathers, quality molds, and exceptional cutting techniques to cultivate the art of the object.
What makes Noreve’s smartphone accessories so appealing is the ability to customize your choice with what they call different ranges. Each range features different design cues, materials, and patterns to truly make a premium case that suits your individual aesthetic and needs.
Consumers can also specify coloring both in and outside the case as well as dictate overall design with both snap-on, folio, and flip-down varieties available.
One thing we have come to appreciate about Noreve is that they are usually quite quick to bring their custom case designs to market. They were one of the first Pixel 6 Pro cases we tried and have not taken it off the phone since. Their attention to detail is like no other and fits each device they create like a glove.
Starting at around $80, they are quite affordable considering this is a one-and-done type of purchase because based on the quality of production, you simply won’t need anything other.
Using only the highest quality, longest-lasting materials available, Nomad designs all their products from the ground up, from the Horween Leather they use for their phone cases and Apple Watch straps to the rugged Kevlar® construction of their cables, Nomad products are built to last.
New this year is their Modern Leather Case. Nomad has partnered up with Danish leather tannery Ecco, to build our new favorite case from sustainably sourced leather. It not only offers 10 ft of drop protection but is MagSafe & wireless charging compatible. We have been writing these accessories pieces for some time now, but, by far, this has got to be one of the most beautiful cases we have ever seen and is worth your attention. It will offer some serious protection with its high-grade polycarbonate body, bonded to a raised TPE bumper and if you give this one some time to patina, we will bet it ages like a fine wine.
Their Modern Leather folio is equally impressive, offering many of the same features but seamlessly blends your wallet and cellphone into a beautiful and slim folio design. With 3 card slots and 1 cash slot, this folio offers ample storage for your essentials, is also compatible with Magsafe, has dual lanyard attachment points, and similar 10 ft of drop protection. This is one of our favorites.
For the more active users, Nomad’s Sport Case features an ultra glossy backplate bonded to a brilliantly grippy TPE bumper. It too is compatible with MagSafe but also features a built-in Digital Business Card and clicky metal buttons. Best of all, this clever everyday carry case comes with 6ft of drop protection and in subtle hues that complement any outfit and are inspired by California’s coastline and look great! Also, of note, is their new Rugged case, which is made from a durable polycarbonate frame with fortified corner bumpers to absorb shock and offers 15 feet of drop protection. The matte PET backplate feels smooth, grips easily in hand, and looks great.
Lastly, wireless earphones are so hot right now, but their charging cases are uninspiring and generic. But what if you could add some style and class to it with some Horween leather? Nomad has you covered here too.
Built with genuine, vegetable-tanned leather designed to beautifully patina with time these simply slip over your existing charging case keeping everything safe and secure thanks to a brilliant combination of TPE and polycarbonate and some nice protective microfiber lining.
Best of all, these do not affect the wireless charging function of your buds and still displays all LED charging/syncing lights thanks to an integrated light pipe for the LED charging indicator.
Offers eco-friendly phone case products such as wallet phone cases and plant-based vegan phone cases with card holders for those that want to feel good about the accessories they buy for their new phone and the impact it has on our environment.
We are big fans of Caseco’s socially responsible approach to everything they do. They use recyclable, cruelty-free, materials and ethical manufacturing methods to make our high-quality products without the need for child labor. Additionally, they are packaged in minimalist, waste-free boxes and printed with plant-based inks.
With a bunch of different style cases and colorways, we love their Carbon Fibre by Toronto-based Graphic Designer Henvy. It is a combination of a clear TPU case that is MagSafe compatible with raised corners for screen and camera protection, the real star of the show is the carbon fiber print on the back. It looks fantastic and is quite striking to look at.
Also of note is Caseco’s 5th Avenue Phone case and magnetic wallet which is arguably one of the best hybrid wallet/protective cases money can buy. Made from beautiful and sustainable Vegan PU leather with RFID blocking and 5 card slots, this may be the only case you ever need to buy if you plan on saying goodbye to that pesky wallet forever.
We love that the phone case can be detached from the wallet portion too for those days when you want to go minimalist. The phone case itself is also MagSafe compatible which is great for charging and the combination also promises 10 ft of drop protection for some added reassurance. This is a win in our books.
So, there you have it, three of the best new iPhone case and accessory manufacturers currently on the market today. So, the next time you are looking for a way to protect your new smartphone, only look for the best.
