Great Cases for the iPhone SE

Because a new phone doesn’t deserve a cracked screen.


In September 2013, Apple released the iPhone 5S. Two and half years later, Apple released the iPhone SE. Like the 5S, the SE has a four-inch screen, meaning the same case can fit on either phone (essentially), but chances are your iPhone 5S case, like your iPhone 5S, is long gone. So when you get the new iPhone SE — you’ll want to, it’s a compact powerhouse — you’re also going to get a new case. We recommend you pick from one of these five. We kept this list of selections tightly curated, but if you’re the type to need a long list of choices, check our guide to iPhone 6 Cases, nearly all of those also come with versions for the iPhone SE.
