I went caseless on my XR for a year but just got the 11 Pro and ordered the Nomad Rugged leather case. What are you guys using?

Not iPhone 11, but could be used for 11. Crave slim guard with scrap silk cut to fit in the back.

I found the perfect case for my 11 pro max, the UAG civilian olive drab green, looks great with the gold. I liked it so much that I bought extras. I have several cases though, I swap out often, but this one is my favorite by far.

I think Woolnut Leather Case is the best option. If you are a leather fan you will probably like it. It is crafted from high-quality, full-grain leather. The shape is perfectly fit with iPhone 11 and has soft microfiber lining and subtle button covers. It comes in black, cognac brown, and green colors.

I’ve not heard very good things about Apple’s clear case. I’m curious, what are your thoughts on it? Too slippery? Just right? Worth the extra money over a $10-ish clear case from Amazon?
So far so good. Not too slippery, I’d say it’s just right. I had a $15 case on my 8 Plus and I do like this one better. It’s still hard to recommend at $50 tho

Hey, thank you for the quick review and response! If I find a deal on one, I might pick one up. Sounds like the “ultimate” clear case!

Also have the Apple clear case can’t recommend it at the price it is at. I find it abit slippery but not as slippery as when I first got it. It’s holding up well and just hope it won’t turn yellow like most clear cases do over time.

My usual Apple Leather case. But, I must say, I miss having a stand, for those rare occasions I watch a film or something during lunch...

I have always used Apple leather cases, now it's a green one. I also have another one in Meyer Lemon, but did not get around to use it yet.

Today while shopping for a new Magic Trackpad I got a pine needle silicone case, purely out of curiosity. I never had a silicone case since I never understood the appeal. Two hours in... I still don't get it.

Same here! I want to like the silicone cases but really dislike the fact that they’re such dust magnets. I do like how they’re a bit more grippy though.

A few times now I have tried the Apple silicone cases. But, they, to me, are a lint magnet.

Alas, so many colour choices

Not at all, matte finish on the back. Feels good in the hand, you don’t get the sensation that it’s going to slip out.

Good to know. From some pics and videos I saw, it looked like it could be. Might pick one up at some point if they go on sale. Thanks.
