An industry leader in smartphone protection, OtterBox releases a significant update to its original Defender, Figura, LifeProof, and Symmetry iPhone cases.
Now enhanced with Apple’s MagSafe magnetic mounting and Qi wireless tech, each new case gives iPhone 13 users a precise, flexible, and hard-wearing Qi-capable option.
True to form, OtterBox seems to cover all the bases in this rendition. Rugged urbanites, minimalist commuters, adventurous germaphobes — there’s something for every type of iPhone owner.
OtterBox MagSafe iPhone 13 Cases for 2022
OtterBox officially unveiled its MagSafe-compatible cases this week at the Consumer Electronics Show. As a bonus, the case-maker introduces a minimalist 3-in-1 MagSafe wireless Charging Station ($80), which can power an iPhone, Apple Watch, and set of AirPods simultaneously.
Here’s what each new MagSafe case has to offer.
LifeProof FRE MagSafe Case
The integrated screen protector and 360-degree seal tech are waterproof to 6 feet for 1 hour and drop-absorbent from heights up to 6 feet. LifeProof makes each FRE for MagSafe using 50% recycled plastic to reduce its footprint.
Defender Series XT MagSafe Case
The Defender XT MagSafe case ($70) builds on OtterBox’s most popular rugged-duty shell.
This time, the Defender XT is trimmed down for the iPhone 13 but boasts the same five-times-the-military-standard DROP+ rating thanks to dual-layer protection.
Raised edges, port seals, secure grip, 50% recycled plastic construction, and various attachment points fill out its feature set.
Figura Series MagSafe Case
OtterBox bills its Figura MagSafe case ($50) as its artistic build.
As seen in other all-new cases, 50% recycled plastic makes up the flexible shell, available in a litany of graphic designs. It snaps on, is ultraslim, and features raised edges to bumper-guard your screen.
OtterBox Symmetry Series+ Clear Antimicrobial MagSafe Case
Slim and hyper-convenient, the Symmetry Series+ Antimicrobial MagSafe case ($60) uses 50% recycled plastic, integrated antimicrobial protection, and DROP+ impact protection.
With its fast clip-on design and open access to all of the iPhone’s ports and buttons, the Symmetry MagSafe case is OtterBox’s sleeker, light-duty option.
