So, you've got your new iPhone 14 Pro, and now you want one of the best iPhone 14 Pro cases. That's exactly what you'll find on our buying guide to the best iPhone 14 Pro cases currently available. We've poured over dozens of iPhone 14 Pro cases and selected our favourites based on a few key criteria. 

First of all, a iPhone 14 Pro case needs to protect your (expensive) iPhone. Then there's the aesthetic. As digital creatives, we do like nice-looking things, and a protective case is no exception. There are bold colours, subtle looks and purely functional options, and we've included all of them here. 

Another important element of the best iPhone 14 Pro case is whether they have magnets compatible with MagSafe, or whether they're just thin enough to allow the iPhone magnets pass through to attach to wallets, wireless chargers, etc. Jump down to the bottom of the page to find out more about that. And also head over to see how we test products here on Creative Bloq for your peace of mind.

Will iPhone 13 Pro cases fit the iPhone 14 Pro?

The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro are similar in design, but they're not the same. The iPhone 14 Pro has slight differences. It's almost a millimetre (0.03in taller), 0.2mm (0.01in thicker) and very slightly narrower than the iPhone 13 Pro. The buttons are in a slightly different position, and the camera bump is larger and wider than before. The same applies to the iPhone 14 Pro Max, so always check you're buying a product advertised as a case for iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max.

Also be aware that although the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus match the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max respectively in terms of size, iPhone 14 cases and iPhone 14 Plus cases won't fit the higher-end phones due to the larger camera modules.

What should I look for when choosing an iPhone 14 Pro case?

When looking for an iPhone 14 Pro case, the first thing to decide is what kind of protection you want. Do you want a super slim case that protects your phone from marks and scratches without adding bulk, or do you want the reassurance of a more rugged case that will offer more cushioning if you accidentally drop your phone? And if you're worried about your camera, it's worth choosing a case that had a raised lip around the camera area to protect the lenses.

Aside from that, the main thing to ensure when choosing an iPhone 14 case is that it's compatible with Apple MagSafe – you don't want a case that you have to remove in order to charge your phone. You'll also want to make sure you get the right case for your phone. There are four iPhone 14 models and they have different designs and sizes, so you need to be sure that you're buying a case that fits your phone, whether that's the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro or iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Pay close attention to the title, description and small print when you're shopping for iPhone 14 cases. Some products have long descriptions, especially on Amazon, that can sometimes be confusing. Use of the word 'Pro' can also sometimes be misleading since it could refer to the iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max but it can also refer to the case maker's 'pro' version of its own product.

What is an iPhone 14 Pro case with MagSafe?

MagSafe is a magnetic system used in the iPhone since iPhone 12 that allows you to connect accessories to the back of the phone. Comprising a ring of magnets embedded in the back of the iPhone, it allows you to attach to wallets, wireless chargers, grips and more. 

Cases that say they support MagSafe accessories should have a built-in ring of MagSafe magnets, but some cases are advertised “MagSafe compatible” despite not having magnets – they're simply thin enough to allow the magnetic connection to pass through them. The problem is that this connection is usually quite weak and you may find it's very easy to separate your phone from the accessory.
