iPhones are one of the most popular smartphones on the market today, and boy do they cost a lot, so why not spend that little bit extra to make sure your phone is protected? Whether you love or loathe the rose gold backing introduced by Apple a few years ago, it's worth covering it with a durable case, as the devices themselves, while they may look pretty, are incredibly slippy and thus susceptible to a whole range of fatalities including dropping, knocking and scratching.
There is nothing worse than seeing your brand new iPhone slowly slip out of your hands and down the stairs, or worse, the toilet. With a protective case, you may just be able to save your device from an otherwise very expensive repair job. By no means does your phone case have to be dull and boring! In fact, there’s a whole host of different cases on the market to cater to the younger generation of smartphone owners.
From techy cases to enhance your camera, to subtle designs and a bit of bling if that's your thing our list has it all. We’ve rounded up the best iPhone cases for teenage girls that will stop them from damaging such an expensive gadget the minute they get their hands on it. Plus the one’s we’ve picked out they’re bound to want to show off to all their friends…
