Which have you misplaced more, your wallet or your smartphone? Even if you just thought to yourself, “Nah, it’s gotta be my keys,” keeping track of fewer things would just be easier. And since a new iPhone can cost over $1,000, it’s important not to lose track of these essentials. Enter the wallet case — the stylish and convenient way to tote around the bare necessities with a single accessory. Like the best AirPods cases, our favorite iPhone wallet cases protect our devices and look good doing it.
The best iPhone wallet cases seamlessly integrate with your personal style. If you’re into vibrant patterns, leather, the latest tech or anything else, there’s a wallet case for you. Whether you’re used to bifold wallets, card cases or money clips, the iPhone wallet cases of today have meshed the two vessels together so logically that you may never look back to the days of carrying both.
Many of the stylish iPhone wallet cases featured below are available for the new iPhone 13 models and previous generations of Apple smartphones. And even if they aren’t, a few iPhone models have the same dimensions down to the millimeter, meaning your new phone could still fit an older model case perfectly. The camera hole likely wouldn’t match, but many stylish iPhone wallet cases don’t even have camera holes.
Here are a few of the models that have the same dimensions and will fit into the same wallet cases:
- iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 13 Pro Max
- iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro
- iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 13 mini
- iPhone XS, iPhone X
- iPhone 8 Plus + iPhone 7 Plus. These two models are different by less than 1 mm across all dimensions, so cases will likely work OK for both.
- iPhone 8 + iPhone 7. These two models also differ by less than 1 mm across all dimensions, so again, cases will probably work for both.
For example, if you purchased an iPhone 12 Pro wallet case, you may be able to use that same case for the iPhone 12, the iPhone 13 and the iPhone 13 Pro.
Whichever iPhone you have, take a look at our selections for the best iPhone wallet cases below and streamline your life. If wireless charging is important to you, please note that not all of the models below are compatible with wireless iPhone chargers.
1. The Ridge Card Case
We love everything about this iPhone wallet case from The Ridge, a SPY favorite. We trust The Ridge to make durable and secure wallets that will last for years, and we love the extremely reasonable $50 price tag. This wallet case protects your screen with a raised bevel, and it contains two pockets for your ID, credit cards or cash. Customers can choose from either brown or black leather, which provides both a sophisticated look and enough texture so that you can always keep a secure grip on your phone. The Ridge offers this case for iPhone 12s and 11s of all sizes. Unfortunately, they haven’t released for the iPhone 13 yet, as of publication.
2. Smartish iPhone Wallet Case
Looking for a case that’s ideal for a black-tie affair? Well, you’ve found it. This beautifully sleek wallet case from Smartish is made to snugly fit your iPhone 13 (or 12 or 11), fit three cards and any cash you might have on hand. It’s easy to hold and won’t slip out of your sweaty palms like your regular case does. Additionally, it’s made with protective air pocket corners, which are essentially airbags for your phone that keep it safe when dropped. Feel free to wireless charge, too. This case never blocks the signal needed.
3. TUCCH iPhone 13 Wallet Case
The TUCCH iPhone 13 Wallet Case is just an all-around sleek faux leather wallet case. Available in a variety of colors, this case also features three card slots, a cash pouch, RFID protection, a magnetic clasp and kickstand functionality. Similar versions of the case also exist for the iPhone 7 and up.
4. Bellroy Phone Case
BEST HIDDEN POCKETS
Some might not feel comfortable showing off their cards visibly the way lots of iPhone wallet cases do. If you’re more of the secretive type, look no further than the Bellroy phone case available in most models after the iPhone SE, including the iPhone 13, 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max. (Some older versions are out of stock though). The case features a pocket for your cards on the interior of the case for safe, sneaky keeping. The Bellroy is made from eco-tanned leather and polymer and can be purchased in nearly every color in the rainbow. Sadly, you have to take the case off if you’re into wireless charging, but it is a great, colorful option for keeping your cards safe.
5. LETO iPhone 13 Leather Wallet Case
BEST VARIETY OF DESIGNS
Chalk it up to personal preference, but we love rad designs on cases. Though we rep plain leather wallet cases too, there’s something to be said for a nice pop of flowers or a piece of art like the Hokusai Great Wave. That’s precisely what the LETO iPhone 13 Leather Wallet Case offers. With three card slots, a magnetic clasp, kickstand functionality and over 30 different leather designs available, you’ll definitely want to find a more personal and interesting wallet case for your iPhone 13. There are also LETO wallet cases available for the iPhone XR model and up if you hunt around.
6. JIMMYCASE iPhone Wallet Case
JIMMYCASE makes some of the best iPhone wallet cases for any model, as we revealed in a previous SPY article. They’re sleek, they’re minimal and most importantly, they fully protect your phone and money. JIMMYCASE achieves this with its strategic design. A rubber foundation with a raised screen bumper helps provide 360-degree shock absorbency for your iPhone while a real wood backing adds style and the stretch fabric sleeve securely holds cash and cards. If there’s one downside, it’s that JIMMYCASE wallets may be too minimal for guys that carry a lot of cards and cash.
One SPY writer has been using this brand’s products since 2017, and he’s never lost a card or dollar bill or damaged his phone. JIMMYCASE iPhone wallet cases are made in East Los Angeles and fit every size dating back to the iPhone 5S. This one is a brand you need to know. Find even more styles on their site, here.
7. TORRO Cell Phone Case
To all the leatherheads out there, this is the best iPhone wallet case for you. TORRO cases are crafted from genuine cowhide leather that only looks better with age. This microfiber-lined wallet case has a durable, silicone-based frame inside the folio design that cradles your phone on top of a rear plate set for shock absorption. This leather case also has a standing mechanism for watching videos hands-free. TORRO makes a version of this case with a clasp, but the non-clasp version slides much more freely in and out of pockets. Grab one of the many available colors for your iPhone model 7 or 8 Plus up through 12.
8. Dockem iPhone Case with Magnetic Mount
BEST FOR CAR DOCKING
Car docking? Hear me out — if you’re somebody who’s constantly driving, you use a phone for navigation and you like cool accessories, this is the best iPhone wallet case for you. See, Dockem has included a surprise in each of these cases: a built-in magnet for “dock”-ing your phone while driving, located right next to the camera lenses. For those who have never used the magnetic docking system ever before, it’s insanely convenient compared to the other fastening methods. All you do is place the phone on the dock and it stays put while you drive. The case itself is what the brand describes as “vintage style synthetic leather,” so it sounds like it feels great in a hand. And with the dual card pockets on the outside, this stylish iPhone wallet case seems like a real humdinger of an accessory. Find one for all the iPhone 11 and 12 models and the iPhone 13.
9. The Ridge Shockproof Card Case for iPhone XR
Another favorite of ours comes with this second pick from The Ridge that fits iPhone XR cases and an identical version that fits iPhone X and XS cases. This beautifully crafted, shockproof card case is built for durability using a rugged polycarbonate shell and TPU bumpers just in case you’re the clumsy type. Fit one or two of your go-to cards you never want to lose (like your ID and main credit card) right in the back for easy access no matter where you’re headed. The pockets are non-RFID blocking though, so definitely keep that in mind when purchasing. The case is available in green, black and white.
10. Coach iPhone 13 Pro Folio
BEST DESIGNER CASE
Coach exudes class, and this patterned iPhone 13 Pro Folio wallet case is the perfect example. This textured canvas folio case features the signature Coach logo all over to prove its worth. The inside includes a clasp to rest your phone and three card slots to the left. A case like this is best kept in the inside pocket of a suit jacket for easy access; truly minimal and sleek for the discerning man, Coach has your back once again. Sadly, Coach no longer carries cases available for any previous models but it does come in two colorways, a tan and a black version.
11. VRS DESIGN Damda Glide Pro Case
This sleek and stylish case features an extra sturdy TPU build with real stainless steel sides for advanced drop and shock protection. Unlike other phone cases, this one features a high-tech internal sliding mechanism that makes it extra easy to store (and take out) your cards and cash. So instead of having to remove your phone or jam your finger into the tiny card slot to retrieve your cash, all you have to do is slide it open and you’re good to go. Definitely a welcome feature for all iPhone 12 models (as well as some older models if you search) and is the best iPhone wallet case for anyone who appreciates stealth.
12. Decoded iPhone 13 Pro Max Leather Wallet with Detachable Case
BEST FOR WIRELESS CHARGING
Like our choice in the number nine spot, this leather wallet comes with a detachable case perfect for keeping that expensive iPhone scuff-free. It’s awesome for wireless charging because all you have to do is remove the detachable wallet and place it down for a full battery in minutes. The wallet has three card slots plus an extra pouch for storing cash and it comes in four different colors depending on your preference. It can even turn 180-degrees if you feel like watching Netflix on your phone hands-free. Pick it up for any model after the iPhone SE.
13. ONETOP iPhone 13 Wallet Case
For a basic and stylish iPhone wallet case that won’t break the bank, pick up the ONETOP iPhone 13 Wallet Case. Made with faux leather, this case features three card slots for cash, cards and ID. The case stays closed with a magnetic clasp and can also function as a kickstand for your iPhone.
This case was made for the iPhone 13, but you can also find similar ONETOP versions available for the iPhone 7 Plus and up.
14. Spigen Slim Armor CS
Total protection for your iPhone that’ll cost you just $18? Sign us up. The Spigen Slim Armor CS case is made for the iPhone 12 and has options ranging back to the iPhone 6. It has a sleek, almost futuristic-looking design to it and can hold up to two of your most important cards to keep on your body at all times. It’s definitely more on the minimal side of cases and doesn’t feel so bulky in your pocket, which is great given the amount of coverage it brings to your iPhone. Get it in black, pink or blue depending on your preference.
15. Vena Wallet Case
Here’s one thing the majority of us can probably agree on: a naked iPhone is a beautiful iPhone. Think about the first day you got your iPhone, the second you took it out of the box. That gorgeous shine, that sleek craftsmanship, that elite look. All gone the second you put a case on it. Although the Vena wallet case doesn’t resemble your naked iPhone, it is thin enough to still feel like your naked iPhone. Throw it in your pocket and you won’t even realize you have a case on, even though it does. It’s been tested to survive 26 drops from a 4-foot level, it has room to stash a few cards and it can even stand up if you please.
16. LUPA iPhone 12/12 Pro Wallet Case
BEST FOR PARENTS
For some reason, this is the kind of fold-out wallet case that screams “mom and dad” to us. For real, just imagine your mother whipping this out at the dinner table, throwing on those readers that she keeps on her head and tapping away from a foot and a half distance from her face. There isn’t much to it, but mom and dad will love it if you’re gifting it to them.
17. Lucrin iPhone 13 Wallet Case
They might be on the pricier side, but they’re also on the prettier side. Lucrin creates a slew of leather phone wallet cases made from your choice of smooth, granulated, goat, vegetable-tanned, crocodile style and real ostrich leathers, depending on your preference. Colors range from classics like blacks, browns and tans but also head into more unique leather colors like greens, purples, pinks and yellows. You can even customize this case and choose whether or not to have the Lucrin logo on or not and a monogram too. You can get one of these cases for all the phones after the iPhone 11 as well as the iPhone XR.
18. Tumi Folio Wallet Case
BEST WATER-RESISTANT CASE
Tumi is one of the most trusted names in travel accessories, which is why there’s no surprise that they make one of the most stylish iPhone wallet cases for guys. This classic folio-style case is made from water-resistant leather and is equally as dashing as it is protective. The phone case shell snaps closed magnetically to the folio and has a raised edge to protect your phone if dropped. The left-hand panel comes with five card slots and a convenient pocket behind for storing business cards or cash. For the businessman on the go, this Tumi case is perfect. It’s thin enough for wireless charging and looks great coming out of a suit pocket, especially if you go for the monogramming. Pick this up for your iPhone 13 Pro Max or choose the same case for the other iPhone 13 models. Similar, albeit not identical, Tumi wallet cases (no magnetic clasp, different number and styling of pockets) can be found for all the iPhone 12 models as well.
19. BEMAL for iPhone 12/iPhone 12 Pro Wallet Case
While the majority of the cases here aren’t really as fun as some people might like, here’s one for those of you who like to have a little fun with your iPhone cases. This wallet case from BEMAL is covered head to toe in a black and white cow pattern to bring a bit of needed pizazz to the sleekness of your iPhone 12. It has two card slots, a space for your driver’s license and a little pouch to stash some cash. Don’t love the cow pattern? No worries, there are a ton more to choose from, ranging from a starry space scene to a Cheshire-like set of cat eyes.
20. Snakehive Vintage Wallet
BEST STANDING OPTION
Having the option to tilt your iPhone on its side is perfect for people who like to watch some Netflix or YouTube videos on their lunch break. We know you do it, don’t lie. This handsome case is also made from real leather to take the look up a notch and comes in various colors like brown, green, blue, plum and more. It features drop- and scratch-protection you don’t get from other iPhone wallets, especially ones that look as vintage as this.
21. CloudValley 360° Rotate Ring Case
By incorporating a ring that folds out and twists 360 degrees, this CloudValley 360° Rotate Ring Case ensures users always have a secure way to hold their 12 Pro Max or prop it up for easier media viewing.

Furthermore, this rugged case, which is ideal for running, mountaineering, camping or other outdoor pursuits, comes in your choice of blue, black or green.
22. CASEKOO Multi Armor Case
BEST DROP PROTECTION
If you know you drop your phone more often than the average person, it’s definitely worth investing in a case to deal with your more clumsy side. This CASEKOO Multi Armor Case can accommodate multiple iPhone 13 sizes and includes a 360-degree shockproof cushion to deliver protection from drops up to 10 feet high. The case boasts that users can drop their phones more than 4,500 times without experiencing any cracks or scratches. Additionally, the case includes a raised edge to protect your camera lenses and uses matte technology to prevent fingerprints from showing to keep it looking sharp.
23. TORRAS MoonClimber Compatible Case
The TORRAS MoonClimber Compatible Case is a slimline, compact case that includes a multifunctional stand made from aerospace-grade aluminum. The stand allows users to choose from three different ways of propping your 13 Pro Max up, making it a great choice for users who love watching movies, TV shows and other smartphone media.
