Three new cases go beyond just serving and protecting.
INCASE FRAME CASE, $30
It’s the perfect blend of a hard-shell case (back) and a soft, rubber sleeve (around the rim). It’s also virtually indestructible. www.goincase.com
MOPHIE JUICE PACK AIR, $80
The latest release from Mophie extends the life of your iPhone battery with almost no added bulk, fits like an actual protective case, and has an on/ off switch for when you do (or don’t) need the extra juice. www.mophie.com
ISKIN SOLO FX, $33
It looks like a hard case upon first glance, but it’s actually a nifty shock-absorbing soft-gel case that’s just really, really shiny. It’s also clear enough to make out the Apple logo on the back, and it has an enhanced gripping surface, which we really dig. www.iskin.com
