The slim silicone case is lined with microfiber to cradle your iPhone gently inside. Choose from an appealing color array designed to blend beautifully with the iPhone colors. Plus, the iconic Apple logo graces the back of the case.

Which of the best iPhone 13 cases should you buy?

If you're going to be using a MagSafe charger or other MagSafe accessories, you'll want to be sure to choose a case with MagSafe compatibility. Personally, I find MagSafe accessories very satisfying when you hear and feel that magnetic "thwack." Plus, you know it's really going to stay in place. However, if you don't see yourself ever using that feature, you probably don't need to pay for a MagSafe case.

You can always count on Apple to make a fantastic iPhone case. I like Apple's colorful silicone MagSafe case for the wide variety of gorgeous colors that you know will go perfectly with your iPhone.

If you want something a bit more feminine but still want MagSafe compatibility, check out the entire fun and fashionable Kate Spade MagSafe iPhone case lineup. On the other case, if you just want something basic and inexpensive and don't care about MagSafe compatibility, the ESR case is a great pick.
