Which iPhone 15 or iPhone 15 Plus case should you buy?

The list of cases we've prepared above covers a wide variety of categories, featuring options that include inexpensive cases and those that use materials like leather. There's also a hint of environmentally friendly choices in there, including Apple's FineWoven case and the MOFT Snap Phone Case MOVAS.

But if you've been unable to select one, here are our favorites from the list. First, if minimalism is key but so is protection, the Spigen Liquid Air is a great inexpensive option. But the SUPCASE Unicorn Beetle Pro will be perfect if you find yourself in rough environments. The OtterBox Defender comes in a close third place.

If you want to experience a premium accessory, the MUJJO Leather Case is a great pick, as it features a build made entirely with leather. As mentioned earlier, the MOFT Snap Phone Case MOVAS will serve as a more environmentally conscious option.

And lastly, if personalization is of the highest importance, the dbrand GRIP is our favorite. It's textured sides — which are also somewhat reinforced — ensure that you do not miss out on security against falls, but the ability to stick various patterns on the back via skins is quite fun.

But at the end of the day, if you're worried about adding too much bulk and MagSafe accessory compatibility with your iPhone, the first-party option, Apple's Silicone Case with MagSafe, is the safest bet you can take!
