The new iPhone SE will be available for pre-order starting tomorrow, with prices. Even though the iPhone SE features a more durable water-resistant design, you’ll likely still want a case to protect your new device. Read on as we round up some of the best iPhone SE cases currently available.

Now, here are some of the iPhone SE cases that are already available to order for your shiny new iPhone SE.
What about iPhone 8 cases?
First, it’s important to point out that cases designed for the iPhone 8 also fit the iPhone SE perfectly. This makes sense as the two devices are identical in terms of design, with the major differences being under the hood.
This means that if you already have cases for the iPhone 8, you can use them with the new iPhone SE. If you see a listing for an iPhone 8 case, it’ll also work for your new iPhone SE.
