bookofjoe's Favorite Thing: Tech 21 iPhone case


I got one right after I bought my iPhone XS Max in November of 2018 and both phone and case are still providing impeccable service.

I aim to get a fourth year out of both until November of next year, when Apple should finally shake things up big-time iPhone-wise after years of incremental change.


My phone has survived many drops from up to head height onto hard surfaces like Saltillo tile (the most frequent impact substance, here at home), concrete, wood floors, etc. with nary a problem.

In addition, the minimalist case exposes as much of the beautiful phone as is compatible with the device's safe preservation.


Made in England.

Highest possible recommendation.

Also, a great gift for someone who invariably has a cracked screen and is resigned to such.

Doesn't have to be that way.

The newest cases, for iPhone 13, start at $29.99; earlier model iPhone cases are knocked down as low as $8.99.

They're all here.

I'll have this i mind when next November comes around and I too will be replacing my current and hitherto loyal iPhone (2017 X in my case). It was in great condition up until August this year when I dropped it on a rock while out with my dog Björn (common Swedish name meaning bear, having my dog named that always makes me chuckle hehe). Bad news is it cracked, good news is that it was only the backside, so both cameras and screen were spared. Looking forward to what the next launch has to offer!

PS I have had three different cans of pineapple on my kitchen counter for months now, and will at some point provide you with a comparative review of them.
