The dimensions of the iPhone 13 phones are similar to their iPhone 12 counterparts; however, the newer models come with noticeable design changes to the camera bump on the back and are generally slightly thicker. Although the iPhone 13 is more of an update than a complete redesign of the iPhone 12, when it comes to a case , even minor differences can prevent a good fit. You’ll need to buy a new one for any iPhone 13 model, including the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max.
Is it worth buying a MagSafe case?
Please note that all new iPhone 13 models are equipped with Apple’s MagSafe feature, which offers faster wireless charging with compatible chargers. It also supports optional accessories, including the Magsafe Wallet and various other mounts, which attach magnetically to the back of your phone. Like the iPhone 12, the iPhone 13 has “an array of magnets” (Apple says they’re recycled) embedded around a charging coil that can generate up to 15 watts of power.
However, if you want to use those MagSafe accessories without removing the phone from the case, you need one that is equipped with a special mount that supports this technology. The MagSafe symbol is a circle with a shorter line below it. You can see it in the clear cases, but it’s embedded inside, so if it’s not clear, you can only see it from the inside. If you already have a MagSafe accessory, or plan to purchase MagSafe accessories in the future, you’ll want to have a case that supports this technology, and it’s a very good option.
How protective should the cover I buy be?
Most people like cases that aren’t too thick but offer decent drop protection, snug coverage of the edge of the screen (sometimes called a “screen bumper”), and raised corners that help Prevent screen from cracking if your phone falls face down. In the case of the screen, it is true that the best option is to buy tempered glass to protect it from being scratched or broken.
The good news is that you don’t have to buy a super -protective iPhone 13 case to get good protection. Most cases are reasonably slim and still offer protection against drops of at least five feet. In any case, before the case it is better that you try to get a tempered glass screen protector. They are cheap and their effectiveness is more than proven.
The Speck brand has brought many of its iPhone 12 case designs to the iPhone 13, including such popular clear models as the Presidio Perfect-Clear and Perfect-Clear. Normally, iPhone cases are around 15 euros, although depending on the decoration and the resistance of the material, that price can reach 200 euros.
