Sep 06, 2022
Phone cases used to be somewhat of an afterthought. At best, they were an opportunity to own something silly: a conversation piece with strangers ("Woah, your phone case looks like a burger? Mine has Minnie Mouse on the back…"). But nowadays? Phone cases have become a necessary and strategic accessory piece.
Phone cases debut in nearly every post: mirror selfies, TikTok vids, reels, etc. Cases are more than just protection for your phone—they're a chance to showcase your style whenever you post content. We have bags and shoes for every outfit; why do we only get to have one phone case?
With Casely, you have infinite options for any style and outfit. Here are the best iPhone 13 cases for 2023.

How to Choose the Best Case for iPhone 13
Choosing a phone case should be pretty straightforward, right? Actually, there are more options now than ever: What size do you need? What model is your phone? Do you want a ring holder or a kickstand? Do you want extra power? How about the color?
When you get down to the details, it's a pretty intricate decision. Let's break down some choices you have to make when choosing a phone case.
What's Your Favorite Color?
Some people don't care whether their accessories match their clothes. This article isn't for them. When trying to find a case style that fits most of your clothing styles, you have to consider what colors and patterns you wear most often and try to complement that.
You naturally don't have to match your case to your clothing colors exactly, but if you want something that will match everything, try to stick to a shade within the color pallet you usually wear. Neutral tones are always a safe bet as they typically compliment most colors.
If you have a bright style pallet, choose something bright that will always look like it fits right in! If you don't wear a lot of patterns, your phone case can be your statement piece with a bold pattern. If you usually wear bold patterns, consider keeping your case a solid color.
In the end, style is very personal, and whatever you want will go best!
Consider the Size
Phone cases range from slim to bulky and everything in between. Obviously, bulkier cases will offer more protection as they have more material between the case and the ground if your phone falls. The case density will distribute the shock evenly throughout the case, protecting the phone. But, the sacrifice is that they're usually not stylish or trendy and stick out like a sore thumb. They do their job, which is protecting the phone.
You can also go for an ultra-slim case that just protects against scratches. If you're not very clumsy and take good care of your stuff, this may be an OK choice for you. But, beware: one drop and your phone may go kaput. Is it worth the risk for the luxurious feeling of a naked phone? That's up to you.
Luckily at Casely, you don’t have to decide between protection and fashion. The Bold cases featured here offer robust military-grade protection in cases designed with slim profiles. What’s not to love?
Do You Want to Be Wireless or Wired-in?
The new iPhone 13 offers wireless charging thanks to MagSafe technology. If you’re tired of getting tangled up in wires, it’s time to ditch them and look for MagSafe-compatible cases.
All the cases offered here are MagSafe compatible, meaning small magnets allow you to attach your Power Pod without worrying about finding your charging cable.
Does It Fit Your Phone?
Unfortunately, not all cute patterns will fit all phone types! There are so many phones available, and some brands simply don't stock all of them. Even more confusing, every iteration of the iPhone has a different camera, so if you upgrade your phone, you'll have to get a new phone case too.
Don't get too excited about a case before you check whether or not it comes in your phone type. You can find information about what phone you have in your phone settings.
Finding a phone case that goes with most of the things you wear may be a decision that takes more time. But, it's worth searching for a quality item you can enjoy looking at every time you pull your phone out. And, let's be honest, we are pulling our phones out hundreds of times a day. You want to make sure it's something you like to look at, and with the Casely iPhone 13 cases reviewed here, you can. In 2023, fashion and protection go hand in hand.
