Not only do wallet cases protect your phone from damage, but they also cut down on pocket bulk. The best iPhone wallet cases keep your cards and cash easily accessible and come in a variety of designs and materials to match your style and how much you like to carry. The picks below come in several sizes to fit different iPhone models, and some are even compatible with wireless charging for added convenience.

Some of the most common materials used for iPhone wallet cases are leather, faux leather, thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), and polycarbonate, and your choice depends on both durability and aesthetics. Cases made from TPU or polycarbonate are durable and often have a sleek look, while leather cases tend to have more of a traditional wallet style. Real leather is fairly durable on its own, but for extra longevity, many leather cases also have a polycarbonate core or added cushioning at the corners to protect your phone’s most vulnerable spots. Finally, faux leather is usually less expensive than real leather, but the material may crack over time.

Some cases below are compatible with wireless charging. While a wireless charger probably won’t affect the magnetic strips on your credit cards, you might want to remove your cards before charging to be on the safe side, and some cases even have detachable wallets to make that easier. Also, if your iPhone has MagSafe technology, there are phone cases that are designed to be compatible.

From snap-on to folio styles, scroll on for the best iPhone wallets — and find the right fit for you.
