Over the past few years, Apple has focused on meeting customers who are looking for a small, pocket-sized smartphone that won’t stick out – or fall out – of their pockets. With the iPhone 13 series, Apple is once again sticking to this formula. The new iPhone 13 Mini, the second in the Mini series, could very well be the last, unfortunately, as Mini sales have been less than stellar.
Although the Mini is easy to use with one hand, it is a powerful piece of equipment that deserves the best protection. The new Mini looks almost identical to the iPhone 12 Mini at first glance, but due to battery and camera improvements, you will need to purchase a different case than the iPhone 12 Mini. A few cases are available now or for pre-order, but this list will certainly grow as the day approaches when you can grab an iPhone 13 Mini in your hand.
Right now, here are some great cases that we recommend based on their prestigious manufacturers’ historic quality, availability, and features.
Apple Silicone Case with MagSafe
Apple, of course, is the first to come out with a gorgeous cover for its own iPhone 13 Mini. The silicone case with MagSafe offers the best protection for your iPhone. Its soft-touch exterior finish is comfortable in the hand, while a soft microfiber lining provides a second layer of protection. Not only does it look great, but it is also specially designed to protect your iPhone from scratches and drops. The built-in magnets line up to provide faster wireless charging so that when it’s time to charge, you can just leave the case on your iPhone and snap your MagSafe charger or place it on a Qi charger. Silicone cases are available in Marigold, Clover, Chalk Pink, Abyss Blue, Pink Pomelo, Midnight, Blue Jay and (PRODUCT) Red.
Spigen Ultra Hybrid
Spigen wasted no time in releasing the Ultra Hybrid for iPhone 13 Mini which features a TPU bumper with a durable polycarbonate back. The transparent yet grippy sides let the beauty of your phone shine through, while the raised edges of the case lift the screen and camera off damaging flat surfaces. The buttons are easy to find and press, and large cutouts accommodate the cable.
Apple Leather Case with MagSafe
Here’s another gem from Apple, this time a leather iPhone 13 Mini case with MagSafe that adds chic style to the protection, quickly snapping onto your iPhone without adding bulk. Made from high quality, supple, tanned and finished leather, the exterior is soft and develops a natural patina of marks and creases over time. Its built-in magnets provide a snap and detach experience for fast and easy wireless charging on a MagSafe or Qi charger. Interacting with MagSafe accessories will leave slight imprints, so if that’s going to be a problem, maybe choose an iPhone 13 Mini Silicone or Clear Case instead. It is available in golden brown, dark cherry, redwood green, midnight and wisteria.
Moment Clear case for iPhone 13 Mini
If you’d rather not cover your phone with a case at all, consider the Moment Clear case, which features a premium 1.9mm polycarbonate frame augmented with shock-absorbing TPU for drop protection. 6 feet. A scratch resistant coating gives the case a new look, but that’s not all. The case is equipped with exclusive magnets for an exceptional MagSafe or Qi wireless charger experience. It is also compatible with screen protectors and is available in Crystal Clear, Frost Black, Matte Black, Red Crystal, Rose Crystal or Sand Beige.
Caseology Nano Pop Silicone Case
Caseology is making a splash with bold, contrasting, two-tone cases that have a casual yet sophisticated look. The silicone feel of the case gives you a solid grip on your iPhone while repelling lint and dust. The case has a snug fit, slim profile, and a raised ring around the camera for added protection. It’s certified with military-grade protection, is wireless charging compatible, and works with screen protectors. It is available in the exterior colors Avo Green, Black Sesame, Blueberry Navy, Light Violet and Peach Pink with contrasting interior tones.
Poetic Revolution Series Case for iPhone 13 Mini
If you’re looking for rugged protection for your new iPhone 13 Mini, the Poetic Revolution series gives you a drop-tested, military-grade case that protects your iPhone in every way. It is resistant to bumps, drops, bumps and scratches. Additional raised edges and corners on the front provide ultimate screen protection. An integrated sliding kickstand is always available for hands-free viewing in portrait or landscape orientation. The polycarbonate front case has a built-in screen protector. If you are really picky, you can use the extra front bezel that came with the case with your own tempered glass display. It is available in black or blue.
