Which is the best iPhone 15 case overall?

Though the iPhone 15 models haven’t quite shipped yet, there are already plenty of cases available for the new phones. We’ve tried many of them, or we’ve used earlier versions of them with earlier iPhone models. It’s hard to anoint one case the best overall right now, but I do like the new Otterbox Symmetry Series Soft Touch and Figura cases, and the Speck Presidio ClickLock cases have an innovative design that works with both standard MagSafe accessories and Speck’s own ClickLock MagSafe accessories that «lock» onto the back of your phone.

People’s taste for cases varies, so I’ve put a selection of different options on this list, including some value picks for folks who don’t want to spend too much money on a new iPhone 15 case. I’ll be adding new picks as I test more cases. 

Note that the dimensions of the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Max are slightly different from their iPhone 14 counterparts. Additionally, the new iPhone 15 Pro models feature a new programmable button that replaces the mute button, which means the new iPhone 15 Pro models definitely require cases specifically designed them. However, while we can’t make a guarentees, it appears that many iPhone 13 and 14 cases will fit the iPhone 15 (and many iPhone 14 Plus cases should fit the iPhone 15 Plus). 

Speck has brought many of its iPhone 14 case designs to the iPhone 15, including such popular transparent models as the Presidio Perfect-Clear and Perfect-Clear Grips, and the Presidio2 Pro. But it’s also developed a new ClickLock case system that’s built on MagSafe: It’s compatible with any MagSafe accessory but has an interlocking system that secures Speck’s ClickLock accessories to your case. In addition to adhering to the case magnetically, the accessories — which range in price from $30 to $40 — click into a little slot. It’s not so different from Peak Design’s locking system, but Speck’s cases are superior and are more MagSafe accessory friendly.  

For people who own the larger and heavier iPhone 15 Plus or 15 Pro Max, it can be hard to depend on your phone staying on a MagSafe car mount, especially if you hit a bump. That’s where Speck’s ClickLock car-vent mount helps. And the wallet accessory really stays on the back of your phone — you don’t have to worry about it slipping off when you put your phone in your pocket.

All the new Speck models have good drop protection (13 to 16 feet, depending on the model) as well as Speck’s Microban antimicrobial protection. No matter which model you choose, Speck often gives a discount for first-time buyers purchasing through its website.

Otterbox has brought its expansive line of cases to the iPhone 15. That includes everything from the tough Defender Series XT to the colorful Figura to the Symmetry Series Clear and OtterGrip Symmetry Series.

Making its debut is the new Symmetry Series Soft Touch for MagSafe, which comes in yellow, pink and black at launch and has a nice, grippy soft-to-the-touch finish that’s similar to what you get with the highly likable Core Series cases Otterbox made for the iPhone 14. The Figura Series has a similar soft touch finish with a more artsy design. 


  • Easy to grip and comfortable in hand
  • MagSafe compatible
  • Durable
  • Made from 50% recycled material


  • Limited color options available
  • A little pricey

The ESR Kickstand case isn’t your typical silicone case with an integrated kickstand. That’s because the kickstand doesn’t flip out of the backside of the case at the bottom. Instead, it serves as a protective ring around your camera lenses when it’s retracted and not in use. Note that you can also get the case in a clear version, and ESR also sells a variety of MagSafe accessories for decent prices.


  • Soft, grippy finish
  • Comes with a built-in kickstand
  • Kickstand doubles as lens protector 
  • Well-priced


  • Portrait mode with kickstand is not so vertical
