Looks and luxury: Apple Leather Case

Staff favorite

Apple has a touch for creating luxury items and the iPhone XS Leather Case only continues that opulence. The case is outfitted with a soft-touch European leather exterior that will age beautifully as a natural patina develops, especially on the Saddle Brown option. Apple included color-match aluminum buttons for a tactile experience only surpassed by the actual iPhone buttons.

Premium economy: Apple Silicone Case

The iPhone Silicone Case is Apple's other case that focuses more on protection and durability rather than looks. The silicone material is strong and grippy, making it way easier to hold while feeling great. Apple put attention to detail with the soft microfiber interior lining and two-tone power and volume buttons that add a minor but welcomed aesthetic choice.

Extravagant safety: Bellroy Phone Case

Bellroy's Phone Case for the iPhone XS meshes a premium leather finish and flexible polymer for a unique case that looks as good as it protects your phone. It's just 10.8mm thick, which means it won't add much bulk. The iPhone buttons are exposed, which means you don't have to deal with stiff buttons.

For road graders: Nomad Rugged Case

Nomad's Rugged Case is for the minimalist road grader in you. The high-grade polycarbonate that covers the bumper provides a raised edge and the domestic Horween leather that develops a rugged patina over time adds a nice layer of luxury. All told, Nomad's case can withstand 6-foot drops.

Bump and run: Grovemade Bumper Case

We're cheating a bit with the Grovemade iPhone Bumper Case and we admit that. However, it certainly deserves it given its uniqueness. Made of walnut or maple, the bumper is made of an all-wood construction that is sturdy and looks very rustic. It's exposed back also happens to show off that Apple logo on the back of your phone.

Unapologetically plastic: Tech21 Evo Check Case

Tech21 is one of the old guards when it comes to cases and with such illustrious legacy, its Evo Check Case is definitely a worthy case. The main selling point is the Flexshock material lining that outlines the case and absorbs drops while its check design adds a unique finish that looks great.

Flash and substance: Spigen Ultra Hybrid Clear Case

The Spigen Ultra Hybrid Clear Case does the two things people want most of from a case: protect their phone and show it off. That comprises of its hybrid design made up of a clear, rigid back and a flexible bumper to soften drops. Its long-lasting clarity resistance back will prevent it from yellowing over time.

Minimalist conservation: Speck Presidio Pro Case

Speck's Presidio Pro Case bypasses the pomp and frills of some of the other inclusions on this list for minimalist protection. The case consists of an outer polycarbonate shell and a soft rubber-like material inside called Impactium that absorbs and disperses the shock from an unexpected fall of up to 10 feet.

Heavy duty: Otterbox Commuter Case

The Otterbox Commuter Case for the iPhone XS only has one purpose: heavy duty protection. That protection is provided through a two-piece case made of a hard outer shell and soft inner living that even covers the ports from unwanted dust and debris.

$18 at Amazon

There you have it, plenty of protection for your iPhone XS. I'd go for the Bellroy Phone Case as it provides the protection and aesthetic that I look for in a case, but the Apple Silicone Case is also a worthy candidate. You won't go wrong with either of those cases.
