So you just got a new iPhone 11 Pro Max , or in the market for a new case ? Don't worry, we got you covered with dozens of options! You could go case -free if you don't mind the risk, but if you want the best protection, durability, and style, there's a perfect case for your iPhone 11 Pro Max on this list.

The iPhone 11 Pro is a big step forward from the iPhones that came before it. Keep things simple with an official case for the iPhone 11 Pro designed by Apple itself. Designed with soft and rigid plastic to bring you elements of comfort and protection to the phone.

The new iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Max have arrived and so have a multitude of cases to protect them. As always, when the new iPhones arrive every year, I've put together a list of my favorite cases, with a focus on cases that are relatively slim but offer strong protection. A few budget cases are included, but since this is supposed to more of a best of the best list, most of my picks tend to cost more than the typical generic case you'll find on Amazon for $20 or less. Also, since the iPhone 11 comes in a variety of colors people may want to show off, I've included a number of cases that are translucent.

Otterbox is making its superprotective Defender series case for all the iPhone 11 models, but most people want something slimmer. The Symmetry series is a good mix of sleek and protective.

Prices range from $50 to $60 (they should go down over time).

One downside of the iPhone 11 Pro is the limited color options. The standard iPhone 11 has more colors, and more fun ones to top it off. Razer has designed an iPhone 11 Pro case for Razer fans and mobile gamers. It comes in Razer's signature colors, and is designed to keep your iPhone cool.

Zagg recently bought top British casemaker Gear4 and is seeking to further build out its brand in the US. In terms of style and protection, Gear4's cases are right there with Otterbox and Speck, all of them lined with the company's D3O shock-absorbing material. My favorites include the translucent Picadilly and Crystal Palace cases, as well as the Battersea. They range in price from $35 to $50.

Clear protection

Lifeproof

Lifeproof, now owned by Otterbox, isn't in the business of making waterproof cases anymore (it only has one case that's waterproof, the Fre), but it still makes very nice protective cases, including the Next and Slam, as well as the new Flip Series that adds a slip out wallet element that turns in to a kickstand. I personally like the Slam best. It costs $40 and comes in a variety of colors and designs.

Moshi has always made attractive cases for iPhones, and its Overture (folio), iGlaze, Vitros and Altra (lanyard included) cases are available for the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. The Overture is actually a two-in-one case in that you put your iPhone in a slimmer shell case that then magnetically adheres to the cover that has slots for storing credit cards and cash. The cases range from $25 to $50.

Refined brute

Pelican cases

Truth be told, I wasn't a fan of earlier Pelican cases, which were very protective but just a little too bulky (and ugly). But its latest batch includes two that I like: the Traveler (pictured, left) and Rogue (at right) that has soft rubber bubbled pattern. The "clear" version of the Rogue glows in the dark.

Nomad makes a line of nice leather cases that come in brown or black. I personally like its new Rugged case, which features water-resistant leather.  It's rated for 6-foot (2m) drop protection. The case runs $50, while the folio version, which has a flap that covers the screen, costs $70.

X-Doria's Defense series cases come in a wide variety of styles and cost a little less than competing premium cases from Gear4, Speck and Otterbox.

Gaming case

Razer Arctech

Razer, which makes laptops and gaming accessories (among other products), brings its line of "gaming" cases to the iPhone 11, and they're pretty nice. The cases have something called Thermaphene-Based Heat Dissipation that "redirects trapped heat through a thermally conductive lining adjacent to vented airflow channels to significantly improve cooling compared to traditional cases." It's a bit of a gimmick, but it seems to help a little when you're playing graphically intensive games for long periods. The cases start at $30 and come in a Pro and Slim versions. I preferred the more protective Pro, which costs $40.

$30.00 AT AMAZON

Reinforced ribbed case

Incipio Aerolite Extreme

Casetify

Casetify's cases are known for their eye-catching designs (that are stuck onto the back of a clear case). They're relatively slim, sleek-looking cases that offer decent protection and come in a variety of design patterns, with some definite appeal to teenagers.

If you want full protection for your iPhone's screen, a folio case is the way to go. Made from recycled plastic, Gear4's Oxford Eco folio is lightweight and slim and also converts into a viewing stand for watching videos on your iPhone. Price: $50.

Tough folio

Otterbox Strada

Otterbox's swanky folio case, the Strada, returns for the iPhone 11 line. It's available in brown and black for $70 and does a nice job of fully protecting your phone. The only small strike against it is that it doesn't convert into a viewing stand for watching videos. It's probably best suited to the iPhone 11 Pro Max, but it's good for anyone who wants additional screen protection for any iPhone 11 model.
