What to look for with the best iPhone 14 Pro Max cases

Why you can trust Tom's Guide Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

The first thing to do when shopping for an iPhone 14 Pro Max case is to make sure that it actually fits the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Though this phone shares a 6.7-inch screen with the new iPhone 14 Plus, it also has a larger camera array, so cases for the Plus won't be a good fit for your iPhone 14 Pro Max. (Our look at the best iPhone 14 Plus cases can help you find accessories built for that model.) The same goes with cases for earlier iPhone Pro Max versions — camera arrays and button sizes change from year to year.

Looking for something that fits the standard iPhone 14? Check out our best iPhone 14 cases picks or the best iPhone 14 Pro cases if that's the model you have.

Always check the drop protection promised for an iPhone case, particularly if you want one that keeps your handset safe from danger. The best iPhone 14 Pro Max cases for protection will promise at least four-foot drop protection.

If you take advantage of MagSafe accessories, make sure the case is not only MagSafe-compatible, but that it has magnets in the case itself to attach any add-ons. Most cases these days will also work with wireless charging pads, but it doesn't hurt to check.

How we pick the best iPhone 14 Pro Max cases

We assemble our initial list of the iPhone 14 Pro Max cases by perusing the list of announced cases and relying on reader recommendations and word of mouth. We do attempt to bring in more cases for additional testing at a later date. We primarily assess cases based on price, drop protection, extra features and support for MagSafe and wireless charging. Because taste in cases differs from person to person, we look to include a wide variety of cases at different price ranges so that our best iPhone 14 Pro Max cases picks include something for everyone.
