Showcasing the Top Rated Cases for Apple's iPhone SE

Looking for a new case to protect your brand new iPhone SE? AppleInsider has rounded up a list of top cases to keep your 4-inch Apple handset shiny and ding-free.

With the recently-announced Apple iPhone SE now shipping, protective cases marketed as SE-compatible are making their way into the supply chain. But with so many design similarities to the iPhone 5s, will a 5s case fit an SE phone? The answer is yes. So if you have an existing cover, chances are it will work.

Now that customers are getting their hands on the Apple iPhone SE, new accessories are becoming readily available. And even though 5s cases will fit the SE, some may want a brand-new look for their new gadget. Here's a list of the best iPhone SE cases you can buy right now.


Straight from the source, the iPhone SE Leather Case is designed by Apple for the SE. Available in two colors (Black and Midnight Blue), the dye is actually infused in the European leather. The lining is made of soft microfiber to protect your SE from scratches on the inside as well, making this a luxurious option for iPhone SE users.

Both the Black and Midnight Blue versions sell for $39 at the Apple Store.


Want to protect your iPhone SE, but don't want to deviate from the original color? The X-Doria Bump Gear Plus comes in four shades to match the SE's color palette. Featuring an ultra-slim design that stays true to the SE's original form for a sleek feel, the case is made of anodized aluminum with a soft TPU lining for added protection. There's also access to all ports and buttons.

The X-Doria Bump Gear Plus comes in Silver, Space Gray, Gold and Rose Gold with a price of $24.99 on X-Doria's website.


The Barely There Case by Case-Mate features an impact-resistant hard shell that covers the back and sides of the iPhone SE with an ultra-slim profile. The SE's screen is also protected due to the case's lay-flat bezel that extends above the display in an effort to save it from scratches.

If you're looking for a protective cover that stands out in a crowd, the Case-Mate Brilliance Case is a perfect fit.

This rugged case has open ports, while the Griffin All-Terrain option found below takes protection one step further.
