The iPhone 14 might be the latest iPhone, but that doesn’t mean your old reliable iPhone 13 is obsolete. Though there are minimal differences between the two, you don’t have to upgrade just because a new iPhone is out. If you want to keep your iPhone 13 in working order, you’ll want to use a good case to protect it. People who care about the environment have plenty of recycled and biodegradable options to choose from, too. You don’t have to sacrifice protection or style either, as there’s a wide variety of environmentally friendly options available. We’ve rounded up some of the best eco-friendly iPhone 13 series cases below, though many are available for other iPhone generations as well.
