I cannot understand how there are still people out there who refuse to use a case with their iPhone. It boggles my mind, especially when you think about how much it costs to buy premier models like the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max. While I’m a staunch supporter of cases, I’m most passionate about iPhone wallet cases.

That’s because of the extra utility they provide in holding onto my driver’s license, debit card, and perhaps a single bill for when I need to pay cash. I’m no longer forced to carry a separate wallet that I'd stuff awkwardly in my back pocket, which is one less worry for me.

Some of the earlier iPhone wallet cases I’ve tested sacrificed design for functionality, but that’s all changed in the last couple of years thanks to MagSafe — allowing the best iPhone wallet cases to look stylish in the process.

Now that the biggest shopping day of the year is less than a couple of weeks away, I want to share my favorite iPhone wallet cases to look out for with early Black Friday sales.
