Does Backbone work with a case?

December 23, 2022  •  2 min read

We get a lot of questions about which phone cases pair best with the Backbone One controller for iPhone and Android. We're happy to announce our official partnership with Peel to provide cases compatible with Backbone. In addition to this, there's a range of other cases that our community has tested and recommend. We'll be keeping this post updated as new options emerge.

We're excited to announce that we have partnered with Peel to offer a case that can be used while playing on Backbone. The case maintains the original look of your phone while still protecting it.

Best Cases for iPhone 13 & 14 Series:

Quick-remove cases: Backbone One pairs best with silicone cases that can be easily removed and put on again in less than 2 seconds. Our top recommendation is Apple's iPhone 13 and 14 silicone case lineup. Unsurprisingly, Apple-engineered cases offer excellent protection, a wide range of colors, and can be adjusted in seconds.

Additionally, players have recommended silicone cases from brands like Amytor, Ornarto, and Otofly that offer excellent protection and quick removal. These cost roughly $10 and have Prime next-day shipping options.

Compatible Peel Case for Android Devices:

We haven't forgotten about our Android fans out there! Our Partnership with Peel extends to many Android models. You can pick up a case today HERE.
