The iPhone XR was the first iPhone in years to be released with amazing color options. Sure, you can get classic black or white, but you can also choose blue, yellow, coral, and (PRODUCT) RED. Why would you want to obscure that beauty with an opaque case? Here are some of the best options for protecting it without hiding the color.
Spigen Ultra Hybrid (opens in new tab)
Specifally designed for Apple iPhone XR
Spigen is known for its high-quality at a reasonable price. The TPU bumper and durable PC back make this a protective hybrid case that won't add a ton of bulk. It also has raised bezels to protect both your camera and screen from accidental drops or falls!
Peel Super Thin Case (opens in new tab)
Be sure to keep a low profile
A clear Peel case won't detract from your iPhone's appearance; it's barely there! This is only for careful users, however, not for major drop protection. You can snag it in seven different color options and it doesn't have any branding which makes it a great aesthetic choice.
Speck Gemshell (opens in new tab)
A dual-layer protective bumper and clear back shows off your phone while protecting it from drops. It meets military drop standards but with a slim profile. This option also includes protection over your buttons while still keeping them responsive when you need them.
Smartish Clear (opens in new tab)
Get a grip
The Smartish Clear has a matte frosted back for slightly filtered appearance. Beyond plain clear, there are some whimsical patterns to choose from as well. The design is also built with air pocketed corners, an extra layer of protection in case of falls.
Which is best for you?
Whether you're choosing an iPhone XR in a fun color like red or yellow, or a classic color like silver or space gray, you're going to want to show it off. Clear cases allow you to do that while still offering some protection. My personal favorite is the Spigen Ultra Hybrid (opens in new tab) because it looks great and offers solid protection against scratches and scuffs.
For those of you who prefer a case with a low profile then consider picking up the Peel Super Thin (opens in new tab) case. It only offers minimal protection, but it will help to keep your phone looking sharp.
