The iPhone XS and XS Max are Apple's most expensive iPhones yet, with the top-of-the-line iPhone XS Max coming in at a cost of $1,449 for 512GB of storage.

If you want to outfit your pricey iPhone with a case that's just as expensive, we've hunted down a list of the most ridiculously priced iPhone XS cases you can get.

Gray's Alter Ego line of cases available in Titanium, Stealth, Gold, and Aurora start at $1,457. The cases are all made from aerospace grade titanium and offer a minimal design with an X shape that covers the back of the iPhone along with protective covers at each of the corners to protect from drops.


The Aurora version of the Alter Ego case, priced at $2,763 for the XS and $3,000 for the XS Max, features hand-torched titanium to achieve a colorful finish, with each piece offering a unique array of colors. The Aurora and the Gold Alter Ego cases are limited to 100 pieces, while there are 500 of the Stealth edition available. The cases can be purchased from the Gray website.


Gresso, a company that makes high-end titanium sunglasses, also makes titanium iPhone cases and has a new line out for the iPhone XS and XS Max. The Gresso Magnum cases feature an interior cover crafted from flexible, high resistance TPU for protection and an outer shell made of grade-5 titanium for strength and durability. All of Gresso's Magnum Titanium cases for the iPhone XS and XS Max are priced at $595.


Hadoro is selling a selection of luxury iPhone XS and XS Max cases made from exotic animal skin materials like lizard, stingray, python, ostrich, alligator, and calfskin. The priciest is an 890 euro Alligator Folio Case available in a range of colors.


Luxury brand Louis Vuitton makes a line of super fancy, super expensive iPhone cases like this Eye Trunk for iPhone X and XS, which resembles one of the company's classic trunks. There's no iPhone XS Max version just yet, but one is probably in the works. The Louis Vuitton case costs a whopping $1,320.


Luxury fashion house Dolce & Gabbana also makes iPhone cases and has a line of pricey options that will fit the iPhone X and the iPhone XS. The most expensive is a leather iPhone case with a green rabbit fur bracelet that's priced at $795, but you can also get a plain logo case in leather with what looks like fur for $675.


Though not cases, Brikk and Caviar are the ultimate experts in super expensive iPhones, and both have debuted iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max devices that feature entire casings replaced with high-end materials.

Caviar's gold-plated mother of pearl diamond-encrusted iPhone XS is priced starting at $5,420, and there are all kinds of other casing options with carbon bodies, snake skin, alligator skin, gold accents, and diamond accents.


Brikk offers the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max in carbon, ceramic, and gold, with pricing on the carbon models starting at $9,995 and pricing on the ceramic models starting at $12,995.

These cases are not anything I would put on my iPhone XS Max at all. They completely cover the look and aesthetics of the iPhone which defeats the purpose and what exactly make these cases so special they justify the price point anyways. iI guess if money and taste are no object then ok go for it.

5 years ago: Oh my god, these cases are more than 3 times the price of my iPhone!
Now: Oh my god, these cases are like the price of my iPhone!
5 years later: This is nothing. My iPhone cost 5 times as much!

I like how it says for the Gresso case " crafted from flexible, high resistance TPU for protection". That's the stuff that most of the $4 cases are made from... like it's something special.

As a mom surrounded by young girls, when I got to the part describing the Louis Vuitton case, this is the first thing that popped into my mind:

So, how fancy is YOUR iPhone Excess case? It is Pusheen with mustache levels of fancy or Pusheen with top hat, monocle, and mustache seated on a unicorn? Now THAT is fancy!

Fear and panic feeling you get when you drop your phone not enough? Double down with one of these cases! I hope they do a "will it blend" with a few of these =)

And here I am back in November worrying I spent too much on my Cosmos Blue Apple Leather Case for my iPhone X. Nicest case I’ve ever bought.
