The iPhone 12 is available in Australia now, with the iPhone 12 mini available from 13 November, alongside the iPhone 12 Pro. If you already have an iPhone 12, or you're planning on purchasing one, you'll need a case that offers either the best protection, a style that matches your taste, or just something to keep the screen from getting scratched. We've put together a list of cases that should meet just about anyone's needs.
The editorial team at Finder selected the brands featured on this list based on extensive research, real customer reviews and feedback, and personal experience and expertise. For each category, the team carefully selected parameters and then selected the best possible product for each category according to those parameters.
If you are looking for something that covers all the bases – protection, style, price and longevity – then the Elago Liquid Silicone Case range for iPhone 12 is worth your consideration.
The case, as the name suggests, is made of liquid silicone, which creates a soft feel and comfortable grip. It's not too smooth though, with a coating of anti-slip matte over the back to help prevent drops. The liquid silicone hard PC and soft microfiber lining prevents scratches and provides shockproof protection all over. The flexible material makes the case easy to install and compatible with wireless chargers.
The Elago Liquid Silicone Case comes in a large array of colours, which match the other range of Elago Liquid Silicone Case accessories for iPhone 12.
The Spigen Ultra Hybrid case for the iPhone 12 is one of the best cases on the market under $20. It offers a high degree of protection and production quality for the asking price.
The case is made of a crystal clear thermoplastic polyurethane frame, with a built-in TPU bumper and raised bezels for added protection. The case also has pronounced buttons for easy access and large holes for different charging cables.
The Spigen Ultra Hybrid case comes in a number of colour options, including a transparent frame for those who prefer the colour and design of the iPhone 12 underneath. While there are cheaper cases on the market, the Spigen Ultra Hybrid offers the best bang for your buck.
If you're looking for luxury or elegance in your iPhone 12 case, then the LOHASIC Luxury Leather Case is the case to get. The flexible metal frame and soft PU leather is designed to be easy to install or remove, with a TPU inner frame for added cushioning. The case doesn't add too much bulk to the phone overall, keeping your phone skinny and light as originally intended.
The LOHASIC Luxury Leather Case is designed to be compatible with dual-lens and triple-lens iPhones, with extra-large buttons and ports for accessibility. It comes in a number of different coloured leathers, with gold metal trimming.
Otterbox arguably offers the best level of protection on the market, with years of products consistently providing high-quality protection for a range of different phone brands. The Otterbox Defender Series comes packed with multi-layer construction guards to protect your shiny new iPhone 12 from drops, dirt, scratches and cracked screens.
The Otterbox Defender Series consists of a polycarbonate shell, with a synthetic rubber slipcover and polycarbonate holster. This combination of protective layering protects your phone from even the most extreme lifestyles. The screenless design may need a plastic screen protector for peace of mind, although the raised edges do add an extra layer of screen and camera protection.
The included hands-free kickstand can be used to prop up the phone and either stream video content or video calls with ease. The Otterbox Defender Series also includes a limited lifetime warranty.
Some people just want a simple case that doesn't disguise their phone or cover up the branding and sleek design that developers have poured so much work into. For those looking for a simple and inexpensive option, the Elago Clear Case is a good choice.
This minimal case is packed full of the latest in protective design technology for everyday use, with TPU covering and anti-scratch shock proofing. The raised bezels add an extra level of protection for the screen and camera, keeping both from direct contact with surfaces in case of a fall. The Elago Clear Case is simple and neat, made to protect and show off the iPhone 12's body.
Wallet phone cases are the best way to combine the two main items that everyone keeps on them every day, their phone and their wallet. The Smartish Wallet Slayer Vol. 2 is one of the best options on the market for a reasonable price.
The Smartish Wallet Slayer Vol. 2 is ultra-light and durable, with textured sides to help prevent the phone from slipping through your hands. As a wallet, the Wallet Slayer Vol. 2 has three card slots, plus a pocket for either cash or receipts. Besides the main wallet functions, the case is also built to protect your iPhone 12. The Wallet Slayer Vol. 2 has been fully kitted out with protective air-pocket corners, cushioning your phone from falls.
The kickstand on the back can be used to prop up your phone for streaming TV shows and movies horizontally, as well as video calls. The case comes in a number of different colours, including a vibrant purple.
