Hunting for a stylish (and sturdy) case for an iPhone can be almost as fun as buying the phone itself, but when you're as much of a fan of Apple's design as we are, sometimes you just want something that's designed by Jony Ive and his crew.

All of Apple's phones before the iPhone X series had LCD screens, which rely on a backlight and have minimal flexibility.
