8 Things People Look For In An iPhone Case

You take it everywhere. You use it all the time. Grabbing it first thing in the morning is as second nature to you as brushing your teeth. It stands to reason that you want it to function well and look great. All the time.

If you haven’t guessed yet, we’re talking about your iPhone. Not only is it your means of communication, it’s a computer, a calendar, a form of entertainment and so much more. While it looks great on its own, it needs durable, fashionable, usable protection. The iPhone and its case have to meet your needs in a multitude of ways. 

So, let’s talk about the seven things people look for in an iPhone case:


Your style defines you. Whether you’re a man or a woman, you want your iPhone case to look great and function well. Plus, Apple products like the iPhone exude their own style. People look for iPhone cases that complement the iPhone’s high-end, sleek style.

People often choose iPhone cases based on style and personalization options.


Case color is an important aspect to many people’s iPhone case choice. It’s often something people look for right after they’ve chosen the style and been presented with multiple color options. Case color is important as it accentuates the iPhone adding extra style and personal definition. 


Many people choose an iPhone case based on its durability and record of longevity. People want a case that stands up to the test of time! Most people want assurances that their case won’t break or degrade. At the same time, they still want it to look good. 


As those of you who’ve ever dropped a naked iPhone know, protection is an important aspect in iPhone case choice. No one wants a broken iPhone.

There is a fine balance, though, between a case that is so protective, the phone is inaccessible, and one that is perfectly protective and allows trouble-free access to the phone and its buttons. 


This one is up there with style and durability. People often choose an iPhone case based on its function. For example:

  • The exercise enthusiast and avid bicycler might choose a case that installs easily on their bike. This allows them to enhance their cycling experience with fitness apps, road maps and, of course, provides them the ability to easily use their phone.
  • The frequent traveler might look for an iPhone case that installs effortlessly onto their dashboard. People who travel alone by car and need a “navigator” find a case that adapts to their vehicle useful because they can then use their maps program hands-free.
  • For people who tire of holding their phone all the time, an option to go hands-free is often inviting. They look for a case that comes with its own stand or hooks up to one.


Another aspect people pay attention to when buying an iPhone case is utility. Is the case easy to install – for example, is it easy to take the case off and put it back on? Does it have easy access to the charging cord? Can they add earphones easily? Can accessories such as camera lenses be added and used without any fuss?


Many people consider the weight of the iPhone case. Consider the woman with the already bulging pocketbook, and the man with multiple things to carry. They want a case that is light-weight, fully protective and durable.


Cost is another thing people look for when purchasing an iPhone case. 

As the old saying goes, “you get what you pay for.” Many people look for an affordable iPhone case, but they don’t want to sacrifice quality.
