iPhone 8 and 8 Plus need protection

I know the XS/Max/XR are available, but the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are both cheaper and still great phones. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have glass backs to help with wireless charging, so you know what that means. This investment needs protection and a good case is a must.

They're a touch larger — we're talking fractions of millimeters — than the iPhone 7 line, which means a lot of older iPhone 7 and 7 Plus cases won't fit them.

Yes, some softer, more pliable iPhone 7/7Plus cases will fit the iPhone 8/Plus, but we've only included cases in this roundup that officially fit the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.
