The new iPhone 12 lineup is finally here. Apple started preorder last week with the 6.1-inch vanilla iPhone 12 and the 12 Pro, which are really close to arriving at their final destination. These new iPhones start at $829 and $999, so it would be wise to get them some sort of protection if you don’t want to spend almost $300 on replacing a broken display panel, even with Apple Care.

With that in mind, we have created a selection of some of the best protective cases for your iPhone 12, which will also fit your 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro. The selection includes cases for every need, and they come from some of the best names in the market. Take a look and see if there’s one that catches your eye and meets your needs.

    BookBook vol. 2 for iPhone 12

    BookBook, the original wallet case, has long been a Twelve South fan favorite. Now, hot off the press is our newest edition, BookBook vol. 2 for iPhone 12.

Now, there are several things to consider before choosing which is the best case for your new iPhone 12, as each person has different needs. Remember that your commute and daily routines will eventually say if you made the right choice or not.

Suppose you are an active person who enjoys going for a jog or hitting the gym from time to time. In that case, you will do well to consider Supcase’s Unicorn Beetle Exo case with a screen protector, Spigen’s Neo Hybrid, or Caseology’s Parallax.

However, if you need extra protection, you should definitely consider the Unicorn Beetle Pro Rugged Case, Spigen’s Rugged Armor, UAG’s Monarch series, and the Otterbox Defender series. Or if you don’t feel like you need that much protection, you will do fine with Apple’s Silicone case, Spigen’s Liquid Crystal, or Caseology’s Nano Pop silicone case.

Still, if you ask me, I’d definitely go for Twelve South’s BookBook Vol case, as the original wallet case will make your device look hot in leather, at the same time that it will help you keep your phone and all of your cards and cash safe, and in the same place.
