Planning on buying one of the four latest iPhones? Whether you’re eyeing the iPhone 12 Mini or the 12 Pro Max, you probably should squeeze whatever you end up with into a case. Sure, Apple says that Ceramic Shield, which embeds ceramic crystals into the glass covering the screen, makes the phones more durable. But it’s still glass.
I’ve tested more than 40 cases on the iPhone 12 Pro and Max, but they should also work perfectly well on the iPhone 12 and 12 Mini. We’ve also rounded up some of our favorite accessories, including wireless chargers and power adapters to kit out your new phone.
Be sure to check out our other buying guides, like the Best iPhone, the Best iPhone 12 Deals, and the Best iPhone 11 Cases.
Updated March 2021: We’ve added cases (including MagSafe versions) and accessories from Spigen, Oakywood, Moment, Belkin, Sandmarc, Satechi, Pivet, Sonix, Arrivly, and Nomad.
