What to look for in the best iPhone 14 Plus cases

Be sure that you’re actually shopping for an iPhone 14 Plus case. The Plus shares the same 6.7-inch screen size as the iPhone 14 Pro Max, but cases that fit the Pro version won’t fit your phone, as the camera arrays are differently sized. (If you are looking for the best iPhone 14 Pro Max case, we’ve got you covered.) The same goes for the best iPhone 14 cases and the best iPhone 14 Pro cases — these are 6.1-inch phones and their cases simply won’t fit.

Otherwise, pay attention to the levels of drop protection each case promises. The best iPhone 14 Plus cases will be able to withstand four-foot drops. Some cases even provide more stringent drop protection, so consider those if keeping your phone safe from damage is your top priority. But bear in mind that the more drop protection promised, the thicker the case will have to be.

Have a look for MagSafe compatibility if you use accessories or charging gear that relies on Apple's magnetic attachment standard. Most cases should work with MagSafe even if they're not specifically MagSafe cases, but if it's a particularly thick case, you may struggle to get it to work with your phone once it's installed. 

How we pick the best iPhone 14 Plus cases

We use word of mouth and customer reviews to come up with our initial list of best iPhone 14 Plus cases. We look at factors like cost, drop protection, special features and colors when evaluating cases. We also try to include a variety of cases featuring different styles and prices to account for different tastes and preferences. When possible, we bring in cases for additional testing.

Which cases are compatible with iPhone 14 Plus?

As you'd expect, any case marketed as being for the iPhone 14 Plus should fit the phone. Some listed as for a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 may fit too, and will be named this way because they were designed and shipped prior to Apple confirming the name of the phone.

Cases designed for the iPhone 14 Pro Max should also fit too, but we don't recommend using one for the iPhone 14 Plus. The Pro Max's rear cameras are much larger than the Plus', meaning you'll end up with a weird-looking gap between the edge of the case and the camera block.

Do you need a case for the iPhone 14 Plus?

We'll give you the same advice on deciding on whether a case is needed for the iPhone 14 Plus that we give for any other phone: it's not a necessity, but it's definitely a good idea.

Dropping a phone, even from a short height, means scratches and scrapes that can ruin the look or functionality of your phone until you pay out for a repair. Those repairs will cost a lot more than any case you could buy, so unless you're certain you won't drop the phone, it's better to be safe than sorry.

Can I use an iPhone 14 Pro Max case with an iPhone 14 Plus?

The iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 Pro Max both measure 6.7 inches, so in theory a case designed for the Pro Max will fit your Plus. However, because of slightly different measurements, not to mention a much larger camera system, the Pro Max case likely won't fit a Plus perfectly. You're best going for a specific iPhone 14 Plus case.

Can I use an iPhone 13 case with an iPhone 14 Plus?

The iPhone 13 came in 5.4-inch (mini), 6.1-inch (base and Pro) and 6.7-inch (Pro Max) flavors. Only the Pro Max is therefore the same size as the iPhone 14 Plus at 6.7 inches, but cases designed for the iPhone 13 Pro Max cases won't fit the 14 Plus perfectly since the precise measurements beyond the display size are still different.

Do iPhone 14 cases fit the iPhone 14 Plus?

Sorry to tell you that's a no. The iPhone 14 is a much smaller 6.1-inch phone than the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Plus, so there's no chance of squeezing the Plus into a standard case. Fortunately, most case makers should offer identical options for both phones, so you don't have to miss out.
