The iPhone 15 series marks a notable shift in iPhone design, with refined edges across the board that make them more comfortable to hold, not to mention Apple has finally made the jump to USB-C. The back glass on some is now even cheaper to have repaired too. But wouldn't it be nice if you didn't have to worry about your iPhone getting smashed in the first place?

We've contacted our favorite Apple accessory makers to go hands-on with their latest and greatest cases. In this round-up we've picked cases for all four of the new best iPhones: the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, alongside the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. This year, all models feature refined designs, with the Pro models opting for titanium frames over their predecessors' steel. USB-C is now standard, as is the Dynamic Island; all models boast upgraded cameras and chipsets, and the Pros also ditch the classic alert slider for a new Action button.

The cases selected here are chosen based on their style, the design and construction features that help keep your iPhone safe, and – in some cases – connected to the wider accessory ecosystem that they're a part of.
