Chapter in this post:
Yesterday it was Apple iPhone SE (2020) presented, which has the same dimensions as one of the previous models. This is why the “old” cases can also be used for the new Apple smartphone. Below you will find an overview of the best iPhone SE 2 cases that you can already buy now. Because the design of the budget device is basically the same as the iPhone 8. So are you looking for an ultra-thin silicone case, a smartphone case or a flip case, an outdoor case or something made of synthetic leather, wood or other great materials? Then take a look, thanks to the iPhone 8 there is already a large selection;)
The new Apple iPhone SE, which by the way is only unofficially called “iPhone SE 2”, has the same dimensions as the iPhone 8 (without “Plus”). The height is 138,4mm, the width measures 67,3mm, and it is 7,3mm deep. Even the weight is the same at 148 g. In addition to the dimensions, the technical data of the display and the cameras are the same - but with the A13 Bionic Chip and other improvements in the hardware (and probably also in the battery), there is more power under the hood. Apart from that, the similarities in structure mean that you can use an iPhone 8 case for the new iPhone SE. You can find a selection below.
Fun fact: You can no longer easily access the technical data of the iPhone 8 on the German Apple website; but try the site from Liechtenstein - that's still possible (As of: April 16.04.2020, 2). For a detailed explanation of the fact that the housing as well as the camera, buttons and home button on the iPhone SE (8nd Gen) are positioned in the same way as on the iPhone 151, you can see page XNUMX of the updated Accessory Design Guidelines from Apple's developer website. There are technical drawings and data that are overwritten with both models;)
There are many silicone cases for the iPhone 8 available, sometimes transparent, sometimes monochrome, sometimes with a pattern or motif. For example, you already get a transparent iPhone SE 2 cover made of silicone for 7,99 EUR on Amazon. A non-slip and soft cover for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 7 as well as for the new iPhone SE (2020) is available in black for only 9,95 EUR at Amazon. You can also find thin covers with various modern patterns for only 6,99 EUR on this product page.
For the iPhone 8 and thus also for the new iPhone SE (2020) there are various flip-up cases and bookcase covers. This not only protects the back, the edges and the 4,7 inch display, but also usually has more functions. Some covers can be folded so that you can use them as a stand - there are also some with card slots for EC cards, credit cards, ID cards and so on. Here are three examples with good and very good ratings:
If you want a decent bumper for your new Apple smartphone, there is also an extensive selection for this. The outdoor cases for iPhone 8 and iPhone SE (2020) are quite strong, which is why they are rarely something for your pocket - but they offer the best protection. Three models that were rated good and very good are, for example, the robust cases from Beeasy for 27,99 euros from SupCase for 24,99 euros or the model of Urban Armor Gear for 31,99 euros with screen protection and card compartment.
The new Apple iPhone SE itself already has IP67 protection. This means that the device is dustproof and protected against temporary submersion in water. But if you want to play it safe because you are in a body of water, on a boat, on a construction site or in other places with more dust and / or water than anywhere else, there are also the right iPhone SE 2 waterproof cases for this. For the iPhone 8, for example, models from Beeasy for 27,99 euros from Lanhiem for 19,99 euros or as a bag with a chain / wrist strap from Mpow for 6,79 euros.
I have already presented ecological accessories for Apple devices such as iPhone, iPad and MacBook in this post: Woodcessories - ecological accessories for iPad, iPhone, Watch and MacBook. As you can see, there is wood to choose from as the material for an iPhone SE 2 cover, but also slate, for example. You can find some examples in the linked post - these real wood cases fit for the iPhone 8 and thus also for the budget smartphone from Cupertino presented yesterday:
The individual covers are available with maple, bamboo, cherry, walnut and partly with gray and red slate.
Even more choice: Contribution to iPhone 8 cases from 2017
