The iPhone 14 is a dream as is—it comes with a Super Retina XDR display, a
6.1‑inch (diagonal) all‑screen OLED display, tough ceramic shield glass, and two 12MP cameras.
The iOS 16 software allows you to customize the Lock Screen of your phone in exciting ways.
Photos can be layered behind on-screen features, such as the time,, and the iOS will even use its intelligence to suggest the most fitting options. You can also change the font, color, and move elements around the Lock Screen with ease.
Why not customize the side of your device that faces the world and protects your investment? A protective leather case will secure your iPhone 14 against scratches and cracks while complementing your personal style.
Leather cases are the best for your iPhone 14 because they’re as bold and classy as the phone itself. They’re also comfortable, customizable, and offer the ultimate protection for your device.
When it comes to selecting a high-quality leather case for an iPhone 14 in 2022, you’ll want it to have the following protective features:
- Drop protection
- MagSafe compatibility
- A snug fit
- High-quality leather

1 - Offers Superior Drop Protection
The main reason you’re getting a phone case is to protect your phone from dings and drops. So, you can't afford to compromise on this feature when choosing a new case.
High-quality leather, such as the Horween leather Popov uses, is thick enough to absorb shock from falls and is also resistant to scratches and scrapes.
Our case also features a full thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) bumper case, which is flexible, soft, and sturdy to protect your phone.
A leather patch hand-sewn on the TPU bumper case and the raised ridges around the camera ensure nothing is left to chance. Most of our goods are made with leather that has a thickness of between 1.2 and 1.6 mm.
Expert tip: Due to the thickness of our leather, Popov Leather iPhone 14 cases do not support vertical mounting accessories but are fully MagSafe compatible.
2 - MagSafe Compatibility
Ordinary cases that lack the MagSafe mechanism weaken the magnetic pull of your MagSafe-enabled iPhone 14 to its accessories. This may lead to accidental falls of your MagSafe accessories, such as chargers, sleeves, wallets, and powerbanks.
MagSafe-compatible iPhone 14 leather cases have a built-in ring of magnets that enhance your phone’s magnetic strength for fast and efficient attachment of accessories.
Popov’s leather iPhone 14 cases are all compatible with Apple’s MagSafe chargers and other accessories.
You’ll love the seamless attach and detach experience that you get with our cases, and you’ll never need to remove the case to snap your MagSafe or Qi-certified charger on.
The built-in magnetic charging ring also aligns perfectly with the magnets in your phone and charger to enable faster and more efficient charging.
3 - Durability
When it comes to leather, quality is everything. Full-grain Horween leather is the Cadillac in this category, and it gives your phone a timeless, refined, and sophisticated appearance and ultimate protection from scratches and accidental falls.
Full-grain leather is heirloom grade, so a case made using this material promises to last a lifetime. Your case is bullet-proof to everyday wear and tear, and it’ll definitely outlive any plastic, metal, or silicone case you’d have gotten in its place.
The strength and durability of this full-grain leather come from the fact that the grain is left intact and it's not sanded or buffed down.
The best thing is that it's breathable and won't develop mold, dust, fungus, bad odors, or dry abrasion that easily affect synthetic cases.
My handsewn leather cases are made using durable Tiger Thread, which is the strongest thread on the market. What’s more, the saddle-stitching method ensures your case will never come apart.
This is not hearsay. That's why every one of our products comes with a lifetime guarantee, and our leather cases are no exception.
4 - Snug Fit
Leather may be a rigid material but it’s not as rigid as metal or plastic. However, Popov Leather cases combine the leather with a TPU bumper case that's flexible and slides effortlessly over your phone, snaps on quickly, and stays put throughout.
A good leather case will also allow you easy access to the lock, volume, and switch buttons, ensuring you can perform regular actions without obstruction.
A perfectly fitted case should also hug your phone snugly, without being flimsy so as to provide sufficient protection from accidental damage.
You’ll be happy to know that my collection of 2022 leather iPhone 14 cases will fit all iPhone 14 models, including the Pro, Pro Max, and Plus.
"This is the 3rd product we’ve had from Popov Leather and in their usual fashion, the quality is top-notch. The leather feels nice and the stitching is really good quality. The case is nice and flexible without being flimsy—the buttons all work with ease and as expected."
Further Protect Your iPhone 14 Screen With Our Protector
Whether you drop your phone often or not, a screen protector is a necessary accessory for your new iPhone 14.
It adds an extra layer of protection that prevents scratches and cracks.
My goal is to provide your phone with 360-degree protection so that no surface is left unprotected.
In comes the iPhone 14 ultra-clear tempered glass protector to keep your phone scratch-free without sacrificing touch sensitivity.
Popov Leather's iPhone 14 screen protector has the following features to offer:
- 9H tempered glass: A super protective material that's highly resistant to scratches and protects your screen against low-level drops.
- HD clarity: 100% high-definition clarity that allows you to enjoy the high resolution and color accuracy of your phone.
- Oleophobic coating: A nano-coating that repels skin oils and keeps fingerprint smudges at bay.
The glass protector mirrors the smooth feel and high touch sensitivity of the screen itself for a comfortable and unimpeded experience.
Choose From Our Collection of Unique Leather Cases
All Popov Leather accessories speak for themselves. They feature a minimalist design that’s subtle yet sophisticated.
Our new 2022 leather iPhone 14 cases are no different as they feature a sleek, minimalist, and elegant finish. Here are just a few things that make our leather cases stand out from the majority:
- Hand-sewn to perfection: We hand-sew our leather cases using the “saddle-stitch” method which gives a high-quality finish and never unravels.
- Customizable: You can have your leather case laser-engraved with your name, significant dates, or initials. Engraving costs $9—and if this is a gift, it’ll be the best $9 you ever spend. If you’re not sure what to engrave, don't worry, my team and I can help you decide.
