Apple's iPhone XR sits in between the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus and the iPhone XS and XS Max. It offers a similar design to the XS devices, ditching the Touch ID fingerprint sensor in favour of Face ID and a notched display, but it has a single rear camera and it is built from aluminium rather than stainless steel.
Like the iPhone 8 devices and the premium iPhone XS devices, the XR has a glass back, which means protection is key. Here are some of the best iPhone XR cases we have come across so far.
It took a while for Apple to announce an official case for the iPhone XR but there is now one available for around $39/£45. It is a clear snap on case, showing off the XR's colourful design. Made from polycarbonate and flexible TPU materials, the case sits over the device's buttons and it is compatible with Qi wireless chargers.
In addition to the clear snap on case, Apple also has a $129/£129 battery case for the iPhone XR. Available in black and white colour options, the iPhone XR battery case is claimed to improve the XR's battery life to deliver 39 hours of talk time, 22 hours of internet or 27 hours of video playback.

There are a couple of excellent Moshi cases available for the iPhone XR. Our favourite is the £45 Altra. It's a hardshell case with a removable wrist strap military-grade drop protection. It's available in four different finishes. Our second Moshi pick is the Capto case that with its "multi strap" built into the rear. You can use it to either hold the phone or as a clever stand to prop up the phone.
