iPhones aren’t cheap. And humans can be pretty clumsy. So it’s perfectly rational to want to protect your device with a case. But with so many on the market, how are you supposed to know which ones are worth plumping for? In truth, there are many good options available depending on your exact priorities – but for every decent case there are half a dozen useless ones. That’s where we come in – we’ve picked three of our favorites for your consideration.
Whether you’re looking for the best protection, longer battery life or just a good all-rounder that won’t break the bank, these are all solid choices. Whatever your needs, we’ve got you covered!

Incipio NGP Case (£14.24/£16.99)
Not only is the price pretty reasonable, this option is a great all-rounder for those who just want a simple, plain case for their iPhone. It’s a slim, flexible case with a slightly translucent matte finish – it looks surprisingly good without compromising on the iPhone-ness of your device.. Its durable polymer finish will protect against the majority of knocks and scratches, though it can’t compete with our next choice in terms of drop protection. With cut-outs in all the right places and a much grippier finish than the naturally slippery iPhone, this is a very respectable case for the price.
Best for durability
MKEKE Tough Hybrid Case (£8.99/£8.99)
If you don’t mind the added bulk, you can get a much more protective case for about the same price as our all-rounder. A smart four-layer design gives full-body shock protection, which is great if you’re prone to accidents. The polycarbonate shell screen guard also protect against bumps, scratches, and small amounts of water. It includes a sturdy belt clip for easy access, which also doubles as a neat kickstand for watching movies on the go. If you’re worried about keeping your device in prime condition, this case is a great choice.
Best for extra battery life
Anker Extended Battery Case (£36.99)
Anker’s case is the priciest of our picks, but with good reason – with its integrated battery, using this case will more than double the battery life of your iPhone. If you spend a lot of time watching videos or playing games, you’ll know the battery can drain pretty fast. It’s a nice looking case and will of course offer protection against scratches and everyday knocks to boot. Though this case will add a quarter-inch to the bottom of your device, heavy users may find it indispensable.
Note: Anker don’t make a battery case for the larger Plus models, as that device already ships with a bigger battery than the iPhone 6 / 6s.
