The Pitaka MagCase for iPhone XS and Pitaka MagCase for iPhone XS Max are the newest versions of our favorite iPhone case ever. They’re made out of aramid, which is the same material used to make real body armor, so they’re thinner than most cases and yet they provide excellent protection. They also have a terrific feel with plenty of grip, so you’re less likely to drop your phone to begin with.
