If you want to keep your iPhone SE in pristine condition, you'll want to invest in a case to protect it from scratches – or worse. Here's a selection of great cases that'll protect your new iPhone SE's delicate glass and aluminium frame.

Plus, they'll also fit the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5. Whether your priority is style, protection or price, you'll find something to suit here.

Apple iPhone SE Leather Case

The iPhone SE has an official case made by Apple itself. It comes in black and a gorgeous Midnight Blue, and is made with tanned leather and soft microfibre.

As can be expected, the Apple-made case fits the iPhone SE perfectly, and is wonderfully slim and light.

Twelve South BookBook for iPhone SE

No iPhone case roundup is complete these days without the BookBook. It's by no means the slimmest or cheapest option, but the hand-stitched leather cover looks and smells wonderful.

The BookBook has room inside for four credit cards, but its downfall is that it doesn't have a clasp to keep it shut. It'll also take a bit of breaking in but any scuffs and marks will only add to the lovely aged tome look.

Twelve South SurfacePad for iPhone SE

Another option from Twelve South is the SurfacePad, which is designed for people who don't really want a case at all but know they need to protect their iPhone.

The SurfacePad sticks to the back of the phone and wraps around to the front to protect the front and back, but not the right-hand side, top or bottom. The Napa leather cover adds minimal weight and bulk, and even doubles as a stand so you can watch videos or use FaceTime.

jimmyCASE iPhone SE wallet case

jimmyCASE make excellent quality slimline wallet cases for iPhone, including the SE.

The elastic is very high quality and will last for ages, and with a huge choice of colours, there's one for everyone. It's a great way to ditch your wallet without making your phone a huge brick with the traditional flip wallet case.

Casetify iPhone SE range

Casetify is a reasonably new brand but it's rapidly becoming a front-runner in the iPhone cases market. There are hundreds of designs to choose from, and the vast majority allow the colour of your iPhone to shine through too.

In addition, you'll find the option to design your own iPhone SE case, so you can add photos of your family, friends of favourite celebrities if you so desire.

Snakehive leather shell for iPhone SE

This neat shell case from Snakehive allows you to carry two cards on the back of your phone will keeping the screen free. It's perfect if you like the idea of a folio wallet case but don't want the flap on the front.

It comes in brown or black leather and is now on sale for £9.95, reduced from £12.95. If you're in the US, Snakehive does offer free international shipping. 

tech21 evo Mesh case for iPhone SE

The Tech21 Evo Mesh case boasts the company's FlexShock system, a segmented, rubberised bumper that will absorb the shock if you drop your phone.

It's available in clear and black, though a light pink version is available for £24.95 when you buy directly from Tech21. US shoppers can also find the pink version on Amazon for $15.90. The case has a semi-opaque back to allow the colour of your phone to shine through.

Belkin Clear View case for iPhone SE

The iPhone SE comes in a stunning new Rose Gold colour in addition to the Gold, Silver and Space Grey options, all of which look amazing, so not everyone will want to cover that colour up. The Belkin View is a good option to solve that issue while still offering protection to your sparkly new phone.

The outer rubber bumper design comes in several colours, and is paired with a transparent back to let your iPhone's colour shine through. This case is out of stock in the US, though you can keep an eye on the Belkin store using the link above.

Otterbox Symmetry Cover Case for iPhone SE

Perfect for the clumsier iPhone owners, the Otterbox Symmetry offers extra durability with a dual material construction that doesn't add too much bulk.

This case is available in a few different colours on Amazon, so you should be able to find a shade that suits you.

Soconic Power Bank Charger for iPhone 5/5S/SE

This powerful case not only protects your beloved phone but also juices it up, which means you can use it worry-free in every way possible. The case is designed to prevent short-circuiting or overheating, and takes about 4 hours to recharge.

It comes with an LED light indicator which lets you know how much battery power you've used from the case. We also like that it comes with a screen protector. Another neat feature is the built-in stand, which lets you prop the phone up.

This case is not available in the US, though US visitors can find a very similar version on Amazon for $15.50.
