The new iPhone 14 comes with a few new cool features, specifically the 48MP main camera and the Crash Detection safety tool. If you're planning to upgrade your phone, you will probably want a new case to go along with it. Although the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 appear to be identical, there are some small differences, including thickness that will affect your phone case. In fact, the iPhone 14, the iPhone 14 Plus, the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max all need different cases.


The iPhone 14 has a thickness of 0.30 inches, and the iPhone 13 has a thickness of 0.31 inches, so there's not a huge difference. However, if you want a slightly more perfect fitting iPhone case, you can select a brand-new iPhone 14 case to accommodate this minor change. 

You can get ultra-slim designs for a sleek look, or you can get thicker iPhone 14 cases if you feel you may drop your phone on a hard surface and you need better protection. For your phone case, you can choose solid colors or elaborate designs that are more eye-catching and match your personality.


The iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Pro are smaller phones, while the iPhone 14 Plus and the iPhone 14 Pro Max are larger. In addition, every iPhone 14 phone has a different height, so if you just purchased the iPhone 14 Plus, you'll need a specificiPhone 14 Plus casefor your new phone. The screen size for the iPhone 14 Plus is 6.7 inches, while the screen size for the iPhone 14 is 6.1 inches. The height, width and depth differ, too. Like with the iPhone 14 cases, you can get wallet cases, ultra-slim designs or thicker iPhone cases.

The iPhone 14 Pro Max has the same screen size as the iPhone 14 Plus at 6.7 inches. In fact, it's very similar in size to the iPhone 14 Plus overall. However, the iPhone 14 Pro Max has a width of 3.05 inches compared to the 3.07 inches on the iPhone 14 Plus. The other difference is that the Pro Max has the Dynamic Island feature as well as a stainless steel frame; the iPhone 14 Plus has an aluminum frame. This may be a small difference compared to the iPhone 14 Plus phone, but they are rather huge differences compared to some other versions of the iPhone. This may, of course, necessitate a new iPhone 14 Pro Max case, depending on the phone you're upgrading from.

You can also consider some cool accessories like a keychain AirTag that you can attach to your iPhone case. The AirTag will allow you to track your phone if it ever goes missing and AirTag accessories give you the chance to show your personality even more. From colored keychains to bracelets and dog collars attachments, there are plenty of options to choose from depending on how you decide to use the tracking device. 


Whether you have purchased an iPhone 14 Pro Max, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 or the iPhone 14 Plus, you'll need a new case to ensure that your new phone is well protected. Case-Mate has a great variety of iPhone 14 cases to choose from!
