Apple annually introduces new iPhones, meticulously designed to merge form, function, and fun in a gleaming glass and metal package chicly sheathed in shiny yet muted pastel hues. And what do we do almost as soon as we take this beautiful object out of its box? We slap a case on it. Of course, we want to protect our investment, but seriously? If you’re going to cover up Apple’s iPhone aesthetic efforts, why not do it with something nearly as stylish? We combed through today’s options for the iPhone 14 models and went hands with 15 that do the phone justice (many are available for earlier models of iPhone too).
I have been writing about consumer electronics for four decades, including news, reviews, analysis and history for a wide variety of consumer, niche and trade outlets. For the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), I annually update the industry's history and write the official biographies of the CTA Hall of Fame inductees. Aside from writing about consumer technology for a variety of consumer, tech and trade publications, I write a blog and do market research for Digital Technology Consulting. In the non-tech world, I have written "Bums No More: The Championship Season of the 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers" and "The Rules of Neighborhood Poker According to Hoyle."
