While the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 have practically identical dimensions, the newer model is .25mm thicker and has a slightly wider camera configuration — meaning you’re going to have to upgrade your case along with your phone.
Apple Silicone Case
The silicone case is the bare minimum protection-wise, but it’s simple and clean. Apple’s basic case comes in eight different colors that’ll either complement or contrast with your phone.
What’s the point of picking out the perfect iPhone 13 color for you only to cover up your favorite look with a case? If you’re a big fan of whichever iPhone style you choose, go with the clear case to let its natural beauty shine!

OtterBox Aneu Series Case
Otterbox has become synonymous with serious protection, and this case designed exclusively for Apple means business. Even with that ultra-safe label, this is still a slim case that’ll slip into your pocket.
If you want that Otterbox quality but need a bit more of an artsy look than the run-of-the-mill case, the Figura Series will be up your alley. With four distinct colorful and creative looks, you’ll never mistake someone else’s phone for yours ever again.
This case combines style and simplicity for a minimalist classic-black case. It’s super slim but is designed with dual-layer defense and what Spigen calls “Air Cushion Technology” — in other words, it’ll keep your phone safe.
Let’s face it, most phone cases look boring. Casely offers cases that are as protective as other brands but they have so many more design options. I’m partial to this potted plant design from illustrator Frankie Penwill, but there are plenty of designs to choose from.
