Apple iPhone 8 cases

Have an iPhone 8 or 8 Plus on the way? For those expecting a new device, the iPhone 8 cases found below provide users with a variety of options, including bright and colorful covers and cases with certified drop protection. Best of all, many of these cases can be shipped to arrive in time for the iPhone 8's official debut.


Apple iPhone 8 cases

Apple made zero mention of new cases during the release event on Sept. 12, but rest assured —the entire line works with this years' iPhone. Like in years past, Apple's leather case comes in an assortment of colors, including a Project(RED) version.

Regardless of which color you choose, the leather case retails for $45 for the iPhone 7 or 8 and $49 for the iPhone 7 Plus or iPhone 8 Plus on Apple's website.

Silicone cases are available in a wide assortment of colors for $35 for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8, and $39 for the iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 8 Plus.

Pad & Quill Luxury Pocket Book

Pad and Quill iPhone 8 Plus cases

Pad & Quill makes some of the nicest iPhone and iPad cases on the market thanks to handcrafted elements and premium materials. The Luxury Pocket Book for the new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus is no exception. Hand assembled in St. Paul, Minnesota, the Luxury Pocket Book has a hand-finished Baltic birch wood cradle to protect the device. Five inner pockets allow you to store an identification card, credit cards and cash with ease. Pad & Quill also stands behind their products with a 25-year leather warranty and lifetime wood warranty.

Available now in a variety of color choices, the Luxury Pocket Book for the iPhone 7 and 8 retails for $99.95, while the 7 Plus / 8 Plus version sells for $109.95. Please note, the flash unit is not fully supported with this case. For an alternative, check out the Bella Fino iPhone 8 Wallet Case, also by Pad & Quill.


Otterbox iPhone 8 cases

Looking for a durable case that's designed to withstand drops, dust and scuffs? The OtterBox Defender Series consists of a multitude of cases for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus that include fun designs without sacrificing protection. In fact, OtterBox performs more than 24 tests spanning over 238 hours before a case receives the Certified Drop+ Protection designation.

Defender Series cases for the iPhone 8 start at $29.95, while cases for the iPhone 8 Plus retail for $34.95 and up direct from OtterBox.


Long-time iPhone case vendor Speck is also in the fray again this year. The Presidio Inked collection is notable for colorful designs combined with enhanced protection.

Presidio Inked cases feature bezel screen and port protection in a dual-layer design with a scratch-resistant finish.

The Presidio Inked collection retails for $44.95 for the iPhone 8 on Speck's website.


Case-Mate iPhone 8 Plus case

The initial collection of iPhone 8 cases from Case-Mate are fashion-focused offerings, including pressed flowers and floating scenes, but two cases stand out for being quite different.

The Compact Mirror Case has a magnetically-closed flap on the back that conceals a mirror, so users can more easily line up self portraits using the rear camera, with the flap also containing a pocket capable of storing up to four credit cards. Featuring a leather-effect look and using metallic buttons to accent the design, the Compact Mirror Case is available in a choice of black, rose gold, and iridescent colors, with prices starting at $51 with free shipping using exclusive promo code APPLEINSIDER15.

The Mood Case uses a two-piece construction to keep the iPhone 8 safe from knocks or drops, with metallic buttons on the sides and an anti-scratch coating to protect the brightly-colored case's appearance. The name refers to the temperature-sensitive film on the rear of the case, which changes color similar to a mood ring.

The Mood iPhone 8 Case is priced at $42.50 after a 15% discount with coupon code APPLEINSIDER15.


X-Doria iPhone 8 case

The Case Defense Clear is part of the company's extensive line of protective cases, but as the name suggests, this case has a clear phone backing that allows you to see more of the iPhone 8 than opaque models. For protection, the cases use three layers, including a DropShield liner that extends to all edges to absorb shocks, along with a raised rear TPU to keep the hard polycarbonate shell from touching surfaces and being scratched.

X-Doria is selling the Case Defense Clear for $24.99 for the iPhone 8, and $29.99 for the iPhone 8 Plus.

The Defense Lux case aims to provide a premium appearance while protecting the iPhone, combining a machined aluminum exterior frame with a soft rubber bumper, and polycarbonate inner backing. As part of the design, the case's integrated sound channel helps amplify the bottom speaker of the iPhone 8, while simultaneously redirecting sound to the front.

Available in Black Carbon Fiber, Black Leather, and Ballistic Nylon styles, the Defense Lux costs $34.99 for the iPhone 8, and $39.99 for the iPhone 8 Plus.


Silk iPhone 8 Plus case

The Folio Wallet, nicknamed the "Keeper of the Things" by the company, is a folio case that can use the front cover as a kickstand for the iPhone 8. Made from Saffiano texture fabric, the cover also has pockets to hold cash and three cards, with the case also including a security strap to keep the folio closed, and a wrist strap.

Available in Black Onyx, Champagne Gold, and Rose Gold, the Folio Wallet is currently on sale for $13.99 at Amazon with a clippable coupon.

For those wanting something similar but in a smaller package, the Vault Slim Wallet is a light and durable polycarbonate case with high-grip textured sides, making it harder to accidentally drop. Built into the case is a slot for holding up to three cards behind the iPhone 8, which are held in place until slid back out via the finger hole on the other side.

Shipping in four colors, the case is available now for $14.99, for both the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus.

WaterField Designs

Waterfield Designs iPhone Camera Bag

Though not strictly a case, the iPhone Camera Bag will give photography-minded users a way to store accessories alongside the iPhone 8. The bag, made from chocolate leather or black ballistic nylon, can hold up to four smartphone photography lenses and a mini tripod, using a combination of padded dividers, mesh pockets, and straps.

Shipping September 27 but available to preorder now, the iPhone Camera Bag costs $99 for the ballistic nylon version, $129 for the leather.
