Our Top Picks

Best Overall: Mujjo Full Leather iPhone X

Widely praised as one of the best leather case options for the iPhone, the Mujjo leather case fully wraps the phone and has a slim profile that follows the unique contours of the device to form a perfect fit. There's also a microfiber-lined interior for helping the rear of the iPhone X avoid scratches from regular wear and tear inside the case. The full-grain, vegetable-tanned natural leather is soft, adapts to touch over time and acquires its own unique patina that helps result in a more traditional leather look over time. The Mujjo edges rise 1mm above the glass to form a protective bezel while allowing easy access to the lightning port at the base of the device. It's also available for the iPhone 7/8 and iPhone 7 and 8 Plus models in four distinct colors: black, gray, tan and olive. 

Best Budget: Dockem Exec iPhone X Card Case

Dockem Exec Card Case

Offering a combination of vintage style with traditional function, the Dockem Exec iPhone X card case hits all the right notes with a budget-friendly price tag. The two different card slots for your most important credit or ID cards don't hinder the slim form factor of the Exec. The interior of the device is composed of a DuraFlex inner shell that is shock-resistant and is easy to snap on and off for quick cleaning or transitioning into a workout case or sleeve. The premium synthetic leather looks good in both a casual environment, as well as in the boardroom. At 14mm thin, it is still compatible with wireless charging after removing any stored credit or ID cards.

Best Stand: Twelve South BookBook for iPhone 7/8 Plus

One of the best-known names in Apple accessory quality, the Twelve South BookBook for the iPhone 7 and 8 Plus has long been lauded for its three-in-one design that offers both protection and function. With four interior slots to store credit cards, an ID and a little bit of cash, the case offers a slide-out shell that snaps onto the device, so you can separate the phone from the wallet and safely secure the wallet to leave it in a locker while at the gym.

The real highlight of the BookBook is its built-in, hands-free viewing stand that makes it incredibly easy to set up the phone and go hands-free for FaceTime calls, watching movies or shows or to use with the camera's self-timer to take photos. Keeping the phone secure is the six-sided cover that's constructed out of hand-made, genuine leather, while an interior fabric lining helps prevent stretching or pilling.

Best Wireless Charging: Apple iPhone 7/8 Leather Case

This iPhone 7 or 8 Apple iPhone leather case is designed with a sleek style and comes in nine colors, including taupe, midnight blue, charcoal gray and more. The case tightly fits over the curves of the iPhone and adds minimal bulk. Manufactured out of a specially tanned and finished European leather, the outside of the case develops a natural patina over time, but always feels soft to the touch. On the side of the case are machined aluminum buttons that match the finish of the case. Buyers looking for the perfect leather case should take note that Apple's own option is designed specifically to function well with wireless charging, which is a big perk of purchasing the iPhone 8.

Best Wallet: TUCCH iPhone 7/8 Wallet Case

Designed to perfectly fit the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 and 8, the handmade TUCCH leather case has enough available space for three credit card or ID slots and one money pocket. Covering every corner of the device, including raised edges to protect the bezel of the iPhone, TUCCH adds a little extra bonus by folding back and converting into a built-in stand for watching movies or YouTube clips. The flexible TPU shockproof shell separates it from similar cases with an interior that helps protect the phone from bumps or scratches. The TUCCH's exact fit make it easy to access all necessary buttons, including the ports and the camera, while a lifetime warranty adds extra peace of mind.

Best Protection: Otterbox STRADA iPhone 7/8 Case

When it comes to the ultimate in iPhone protection, the Otterbox name needs no introduction. Compatible with the iPhone 7 and 8, the Otterbox STRADA genuine leather case offers a noticeably slim profile, but the dual-material design adds extra protection against drops. The inner and outer shells combine to provide a buffer against bumps and installation is simple with just one-piece slipping on and off the iPhone. The wrapping folio protects the screen against scratches and a magnetic latch holds it firmly in place when not in use. When opened, the STRADA adds a single slot for an ID or a credit card that's perfect for when you don't want to carry your entire wallet out. And you can rest easy knowing it's backed by a lifetime warranty and one of the most trusted names in Apple accessories.

Best Multifunction: Dreem Fibonacci iPhone 6/6s Stand Case

Owners of the iPhone 6 and 6S should look to the Dreem wallet case to provide the ultimate in full body functionality. Doubling as a wallet and stand, the four-in-one Dreem comes in similar styling for both the iPhone 7 and 8, as well as their plus size siblings. The flip-folio Dreem offers a magnetic design with secure storage as a wallet case. It has three credit card slots with room for cash, and the case also doubles as a built-in stand for video viewing or FaceTime calls. Plus, the snap-on portion can be removed to act as a standalone case and work with magnetic car mounts, selfie sticks and screen protectors. The security-conscious will appreciate the RFID protection for preventing against wireless signal theft.
