Know Your Case Styles
Whether you prefer a slim, lightweight case, rugged design or more playful options, there is a style that is designed to seamlessly fit your device. Available in a range of materials, colors and designs, a phone case is a functional and stylish accessory for your Android or iPhone.

Certain sunglasses cases come with a convenient strap, and handy slots to store your phone and other essentials.
iPad or Laptop Cases
Once you have invested in a laptop or iPad, you’ll want to ensure that it doesn't get damaged easily. Choose from a variety of cases, including leather designs and styles made from durable shell and lightly padded for extra protection.
What To Look For In a Case
It is worth thinking about any additional features you might want in a case, as well as the level of protection you would like it to provide your accessory, essentials or technology.
For tablet cases, you may want a case with a stand that offers multiple positions or one that has an in-built Bluetooth keyboard. If you tend to drop your phone a lot, it is worth investing in a case that offers serious protection and is made from shock-absorbent materials like silicone or rubber.

How To Care For Your Case
Cases are designed with durability in mind and are built to withstand bumps and scratches when you are on the move. However, we do advise you to take special care to maintain and clean them properly.
Any cases you use daily or during travel, including your phone case, should be cleaned regularly. For cases made from silicone, rubber or plastic, the best way to clean is with dish soap and water. Soak for a few minutes, and use a toothbrush to remove stubborn stains. Dry with a soft microfiber cloth. Microfiber cloths are soft enough to not scratch and absorbent enough to dry thoroughly.
Leather cases will need a higher level of care than their silicone, rubber or plastic counterparts. If your leather case is lightly scratched, softly dab the scratched area with distilled white vinegar. It is recommended to keep your leather case away from water, oil, make-up, and dyed materials. Use a leather cleaner with a soft cloth to clean.
- Which phone case protects the best?
Spills and drops can easily ruin a phone, which is why investing in a case to protect your device is so important. To avoid a costly repair or replacement, rugged cases are often the best option. Most are easy to grip, shock absorbent and will feature air pockets or reinforced corners to dramatically reduce the risk of damage to your device.
- What iPad case do I need?
To find the right case for your iPad, you will first need to look on the back of your device to find the model number and storage capacity. You can then narrow down the best iPad, iPad Mini, iPad Air or iPad Pro case, depending on whether you prefer one you can easily fold into an impromptu stand when you want to watch videos or a folio-style case for a professional look.
- What is a phone card case?
A phone card case is designed to keep your most essential cards accessible and safe. Also known as wallet phone cases, they can either feature a flap that folds over and covers the screen of the phone when it's not in use, or they come with handy slots on the back of the case and no screen cover. Burberry, Christian Louboutin, Michael Kors and Gucci have all designed their own versions of phone wallets, which come accented with signature logos, motifs and prints.
