Will probably get Apple silicone one to begin with and better one as they become available. Hopefully will arrive together or have the case first.

If I upgrade to a 13 Mini I'll be straight after a Caudabe Sheath case. Think they had them at launch ready last year. Tried tons of cases over the years and after trying the Sheath for the first time a few months ago, I'm a sworn customer for life.

Im thinking of down sizing from pro max to pro. I genuinely hope they improve Apple leather cases. Both Apple Leather and Silicone cases will be my first choice. As per usual i might give mous a go and then complain about them constantly lol.

I usually go with the 25 cent cheapy naked side cases. So nice to feel actual edges of the phone. I tried the pitaka case but didn’t really like the raised edges ( thin screen protector ). If it’s better this year, will try it again. The black against the new bronze color is too tempting.

really interesting to see that brand, thanks for the mention. They DO seem ultra thin and yet protective. I have never used one though, but I will google that one some more.

I have always used the satin body glove cases- they are cheap but they always were ok for me. Looks like the company is in the shi**er and maybe won't have them anymore. I have an iPhone 7, here is the case I always use. they have always been decent

I always want to have Kevlar Case, but the Pitaka case is barely useful.
Finally found on Facebook ad, pre-ordered. and wait for iPhone 13 Pro MAX

I usually go with Apple Leather but the quality seems to have fallen off a cliff. My latest 12pro Leather case hasn’t held up well at all (Which is incredibly odd since this last year I have stayed home with zero travel). Mix that in with the reduction of AppleCare+ coverage on cases and I’m thinking of trying a 3rd party Leather this year.

I’m really looking forward to Tuesday after the event. That’s when all the case companies update their websites. It almost becomes a little like a Christmas Day. ?

Does anyone know if the 13 specs will be same as 12? Wondering if I’ll need to replace my Loopy Case.
No. All leaks are pointing to the camera module being much larger and the volume/power buttons and mute switch being lowered.

My 12 Pro leather case still looks and feels great after more than seven months of use. The color flaking off in chunks is definitely concerning but I don't think that speaks to the quality of the leather; rather the method they used to color it. From what I've gathered it doesn't affect all of them either.
