A clear choice
Show off that gorgeous new iPhone 14 with a clear case like this one. The MagSafe ring, which comes in a few color choices, means the case is MagSafe-compatible. At almost half off at $25, it could be a great second case to have as a backup for your iPhone.
A wallet for everything
If you like to keep your iPhone in a wallet with your cards and everything else, Arae has the case for you. It can protect your phone while keeping everything else in one place, and alongside being in pink, you could also have it in red or black if it suits you better.
If you're looking for sustainably sourced, full-grain leather, check out NOMAD's Modern Leather Case. Like all leather, it will develop a warm patina over time, making it truly yours.
You can never go wrong with Apple's own cases; after all, they are designed by Apple engineers and fit to perfection. All of them are MagSafe-compatible. Apple's silicone case comes in a variety of appealing colors that flatter the colors of the iPhone 14.
Protection with style
Not only is it MagSafe compatible, but there are raised edges for the most common areas where an iPhone lands on when dropped, making sure that it's protected as much as possible when the worst does occur.
Fashion and function
Don't let this Sonix MagSafe Case's cute looks fool you. It's got 10-foot drop protection to keep your iPhone 14 from getting damaged. We reviewed a previous model and loved the fun designs. You can get it both with or without the MagSafe ring.
Leave the wallet at home
This luxury leather case crafted from premium cowhide features three card slots plus a larger slot for cash. The folio-style wallet case folds into a kickstand so you can watch videos on the go.
Slim and protective
I reviewed an earlier model of the ZAGG Gear4 Milan Snap iPhone Case and it remains one of my favorite cases. It's a nice, slim case and yet it's quite protective: ZAGG says that D30 Crystalex is "the world’s most transparent and thinnest impact protection material for your phone."
In our review of an earlier model of the kate spade new york Protective Hardshell for MagSafe Case for iPhone, we fawned over the case's stylish looks combined with solid protection. This case is more than just pretty, it offers 10-foot drop protection as well as antimicrobial technology.
The best iPhone 14 cases to protect your new device
Out of them all, we love the MOUS iPhone 14 Case. It brings style to your phone alongside the best kind of protection where the design has thought about the most common areas where an iPhone lands after being dropped.
If you're looking for something that can hold everything in one place, consider the Arae Wallet case. From cards to your iPhone 14, it can hold everything and saves you from taking your purse/wallet with you as well.
Of course, Apple's own Silicone Case with MagSafe does the job if you want something that gets to the point. With its silicon material, you've got less of a chance of your iPhone 14 slipping away from your hands, and if you've got a MagSafe charger, it can still snap to the iPhone through the case.
The best iPhone 14 case is the one on your device
If you're like us, picking the right iPhone case can take hours and hours out of your day as you look for the best option. Just remember, the best iPhone case is the one on your device.
