Apple's iPhone X has arrived, and it's a beauty. It's also pricey, at $999 to start, so you're going to want a new case to keep your investment in pristine condition. You're also going to want that case to match the iPhone X's striking looks.
Choosing a case that complements and protects the iPhone X's display can be daunting, but luckily, case designers have already produced plenty of options to fit your demands. From rugged to waterproof or just plain stylish, you can pick from a variety of options. Here are 22 iPhone X cases that have caught our eye so far.
If you're investing more than $1,000 on a smartphone, you're allowed to dress your device in premium materials. Designed by Apple to complement the iPhone X, this tanned, European leather case cushions your phone's curved edges without added bulk. Over time, the Apple Leather Case should develop a natural patina, giving the accessory a vintage feel. It comes with matching aluminum buttons and a microfiber interior that protects your iPhone X, all in one slim package. Available in Cosmos Blue, Pink Fuchsia, Dark Aubergine, Charcoal Gray, Taupe, Saddle Brown, Midnight Blue, Black and the licensed Product Red, Apple's colorful leather adds a pop of personality. For $50 extra, you can get your hands on Apple's leather folio version, though that case offers fewer color choices.
If you're a fashionista who owns an iPhone X, it might be difficult to find a worthy case that represents your unique style. Bandolier's luxurious cross-body iPhone X cases are stylish options that remove the need for bulky purses and wallets. The Libby Gold X case is made out of pebbled black leather with a matching, 52-inch strap that's intertwined with a gold chain. The Libby Gold X comes with precise camera cutouts and button covers, so you'll never have to take your iPhone X out of the case. It also has a concealed snapback cover to hold your cash or credit cards.
If I had a dollar for every time an iPhone slipped out of my hand and fell to the ground, I'd be able to buy one iPhone X for work and another just for myself. The slipperiness of the phones is why we're considering the Spigen Thin Fit iPhone X case, with its grippy, non-slip matte surface. And as you see here, it's an incredibly-thin case, barely adding any lip to the phone and not covering any of its display. And at $10.99, the case is highly affordable.
We've seen a lot of shock-absorbing cases in our time, but never has one featured its own name. That's changed, though, with Speck's Presidio iPhone X case with its Impactium lining. And while the case does add a little with its own bezel, it's there to protect your iPhone X's OLED display from direct drops onto its face. Available in a Black that blends into all of your other stuff and a hue Speck calls Dusty Green that we're eyeing with envy.
Ghostek seals your iPhone X away from the elements with the Atomic Slim Tough Case. Made with an aluminum-alloy frame and dual-layered thermoplastic, the Atomic Slim is a MIL-SPEC-tested case that absorbs shock and resists scratches. Raised corners will protect your iPhone X's precious OLED display, while port covers keep unwanted particles out. Thanks to its clear back, the Atomic Slim is compatible with wireless charging. Available in black, gold, pink, red, silver and teal, the Atomic Slim is a distinctive phone case, especially when you take into account Ghostek's artistic interior, which features branded comic strips.
The cases in the Executive Collection by LuxArmor are solid choices for minimalists who want only a pop of color for the iPhone X. With an ultra-thin and sleek design, LuxArmor provides premium protection for the Executive Collection with a compressed polycarbonate body, which adds firmness and absorbs shock. The Executive case doesn't feature any logos of its own, but it has a cutout to show off the iconic apple on the back of your iPhone X. Each Executive case comes with gold or platinum bumpers and matching button covers to accentuate your iPhone X's rounded shape. Stunning jewel tones in black, blue, gold, silver, red and rose gold add a touch of sophistication.
Moment — the premiere maker of add-on lenses for iPhones — has finally released a case for the iPhone X. Compatible with the wide-angle, telephoto, superfish and macro lenses Moment released in 2017, the case is available with either black fabric or walnut paneling. Its rubberized body also provides some protection against any accidental case of the drops.
