This September, there's more than just the start of fall to be excited about: It's also the month that Apple is releasing the new iPhone. Today, September 24, the much-anticipated iPhone 13 hits shelves, along with the Pro and Pro Max versions. Available in all-new colors, like pale pink and a pretty teal hue, it's said to be speedier and to have a longer battery life and better camera than its predecessors.

However, despite being the same dimensions as the iPhone 12, the iPhone 13 has slight differences that make it unsuitable for iPhone 12 cases. Which leads us to today’s topic. If you have a new device—or just ordered one—here are eight of the best iPhone 13 cases to keep it safe, from brands like OtterBox and Casetify.

OtterBox is famous for making phone cases that are built to last. While most OtterBox cases are sold at a bunch of different retailers, the new Aneu Series was designed specifically for Apple. The cases are sold in four colors and, unlike traditional OtterBox form, they’re not super bulky. Instead, they’re slim yet protective, making them particularly appealing for folks on the go.

PopSockets recently debuted a line of phone cases complete with the brand's cult-favorite PopGrips. The PopCase is one-of-a-kind because, unlike phones with stationary PopGrips, the grip on this case is attached to a slide, so you can move it up and down along your phone to easily accommodate mounting, MagSafe charging and more. Right now, the case is sold in seven prints for iPhone 13 but you’ll have to be patient: Shipping isn’t expected until October 1.

For those who prefer simple, slim cases with the utmost style, consider this leather case from Apple. Sold in five colors, the cases are known for their more refined appearance—the leather softens and develops a patina over time—and MagSafe compatibility. Note that they require more care and maintenance given that they're made of leather. Regardless, theses cases remain a shoppers’ favorite.
