If you 8217;re looking to take your iPhone into deep water, check out Catalyst 8217;s waterproof case. The complete waterproof seal allows you to take your iPhone into much deeper water than before, with waterproofing tested up to 33 feet (10 meters). A rotating switch allows you to keep using your mute switch, while plugs and button covers ensure all-around protection against ingress. There 8217;s a good amount of normal protection here too, thanks to the tough polycarbonate build that protects against drops up to 6.6 feet (2 meters). The red trim adds a bold style, the case is easy to put on and remove, and it even works with wireless chargers, so you can quickly juice it up between dips. The price is a major downside though, as it 8217;s a lot of money 8212; but it 8217;s a whole lot cheaper than a new iPhone.
Lifeproof is a big name for protection against a variety of environments, and the Fre is its top-of-the-line case for pure protection. It 8217;s resistant against dirt, snow, water, and drops, making it a great choice for a number of different activities. Waterproofing isn 8217;t quite as bulletproof as other cases, as it 8217;s only tested up to 6.6 feet (2 meters) for an hour, but think of it as further protection rather than an upgrade and you 8217;ll be alright. While it 8217;s not the case for extended snorkeling trips, this is a solid case that lends itself well to an owner who likes to dabble in a range of extreme activities. However, you 8217;ll be digging deep into your pocket for this one too.
Ghostek is another name with a strong pedigree for protection, and the Nautical 2 is its waterproof case for the iPhone 11 Pro. It 8217;s well waterproofed, and supports full immersion in water for up to an hour down to 20 feet (6 meters) in depth. The polycarbonate frame is resistant to other damage too, while the built-in screen protector around the front seals the case and keeps your display safe. It 8217;s drop-tested up to 6 feet (2 meters), and it comes with access to all your features and ports, including Face ID. While it 8217;s still an investment, this is definitely a case you can put on and use during your daily life, as well as on your adventures.
A case built for your device is flashy, but if you 8217;re looking for a cheap but effective solution, this pouch is excellent. It 8217;s easy to use 8212; just slip your phone into the pouch, seal the top, and use your phone as usual through the clear and flexible plastic cover. It fits phones with screens up to 6.8 inches in size, and has an effective waterproof depth of 100 feet. There 8217;s a clear window on the back, so you can keep using your phone 8217;s camera while it 8217;s inside, and it even comes with a neck lanyard so you can keep your phone extra safe. It 8217;s certainly not the most stylish, and you 8217;ll only use it while in the water, but this is a great budget option.
