Which case will you get for your iPhone XR?

My wife and I will be upgrading our iPhone 7’s to the XR when it comes out later this month.

We plan on using a case, however putting a case on the XR does take away from one of the cool factors which is the color.

Typically clear cases do not look too great or get yellow so not sure how they will look on the XR.

That said, are there any cases in particular you are planning to get or already bought?

I already ordered the Catalyst Impact Protection case. I opted for black, but it’s just around the edge, then the back is clear hard plastic. Very similar to the Griffin Survivor Core that I have on my 6S+ now. The back shows off the color without yellowing (it just gets scratched up), and the black edge hides dirty fingerprints.

Some cheapo case from Amazon since a lot of third party case makers have special offers during phone release time. Actually, already bought $3 cases for both XS Max and XR before iPhone releases.

The new Apple clear case.
I think these have the potential to look really nice and show off the colors.

Apple received a lot of flack for the polkadot cutouts on the cases for the 5c, so I'm glad they went clear this time.

I would assume Apple is possibly charging a premium for their clear case because it (hopefully) won't turn yellow. Their Apple Watch sport bands are more expensive than third-party knockoffs on Amazon, but the Apple bands definitely feel nicer.

Still on the fence about getting the XR, but if I do I'll pick up a Caudabe Sheath for sure. Go to case for all iPhones.

I ordered the Caudabe Sheath and a Spigen ultra-hybrid. The sheath is my go to case for my X and I wanted to get a clear one too. Hoping the case thing doesn’t spiral out of control for me with this phone, lol.

Although I love Spigen, Speck, Casemate, and Tech21, I’m very disappointed that Apple has no official cases. When I decided on the Product red, I had planned on getting a black silicone case and maybe a black leather case, so now I am thinking of getting the 10 XS Max instead when I go to pick up my phone on Friday.

Speck presidio grip. A spigen clear case and a ringke onyx.

I love the Sahara case I have for my iPhone 8 so if they release one I’ll get that too.
