The new iPhone SE is available for pre-order starting Friday, and you may want to add a new case along with it. Apple, of course, has six to choose from, but so do a number of other brands. One thing to keep in mind is that the new iPhone SE is the same body shape and size as the iPhone 8, so you'll if you have an older model iPhone, you may be able to peel that protector off and use it on the new phone. (Depending on the shape it's still in.)
Here are some of our favorite choices you can buy right now.
Apple iPhone cases
Apple has two different cases available for the new iPhone SE, one in silicone for $35 and one in leather for $45
