Starting at just shy of $1,000, the new iPhone X packs a whole lot to love – and fret over – in its 6.14-ounce body. It's designed with glass edge-to-edge, bezel-less screens on the front and back, making it as fragile as it is stunning. It might be wise to spring for a bit of protection rather than cause yourself heart palpitations every time your phone slips from your hand.
To help keep your bright new Apple smartphone from shattering, we've rounded up five of the best iPhone X cases and covers to keep it safe.
Caseology Skyfall Case
Let your phone be the star of the show in a case that doesn't hide its design. The Caseology Skyfall is a clear acrylic case that mirrors the distinct style of the iPhone X. It is scratch-resistant and military-grade drop-resistant, and includes side bumpers that come in gold, black or warm gray to match the iPhone X color options seamlessly. The Skyfall is also exceptionally thin, so you won't add a ton of bulk to your phone as you carry it around. The Skyfall is $24.99.
BRINK alara Case
A case that protects both your phone and you is definitely a nice one to snag. The alara by BRINK case case has military-grade drop protection, and the company claims a built-in antenna reduces your radiation exposure by 67 percent by directing it away from you. The case's patented design maintains your phone's signal strength, so you won't miss any calls or text messages while it's working its magic. The alara comes in black and is $49.99.
Toast Real Wood Cover
Going all-glass isn't the only way to show off your style. Adding a better grip that is also stylish, the Toast Real Wood cover lets you go against the grain. The laser-cut, natural wood veneer front and back panels give your iPhone a solid feeling in your hand and allow wireless charging without you removing the phone from the case. The Toast is available in ash, ebony and walnut and costs $39.
Skinit Black Marble iPhone X Folio Case
Sometimes it's nice to leave your bulky wallet behind. The Skinit Black Marble iPhone X Folio lets you do just that. The case includes three slots to stash your ID and credit cards, as well as a hidden pocket to store cash while you're on the move. The built-in cradle keeps your phone snug, and the fold-over front protects it from scratches. Mimicking the look of leather, the cover is stylish and clever. It is available in white or black for $49.99.
PureGear Dualtek Extreme Shock Case
Wouldn't it be great if your iPhone X could float instead of fall? PureGear felt that way too. Its DualTek Exteme Shock case actually suspends your phone in a layer of floating air during impact, minimizing damage from a fall. The case also has an ergonomic grip, making it easier to hold, and offers 360-degree military-grade drop protection. Available in matte and arctic white, the DualTek is $17.97.
