Getting started with your new iPhone 14
First off, be aware that Apple has already had to roll out a bug-fix update for the iPhone 14 series. The issues with iOS 16.0 affect activating your iMessage and FaceTime accounts on the phone. You’ll want to make sure to update to iOS 16.0.1 immediately after unboxing your new iPhone.
Then, you’ll want to set up your phone. Maybe try out the Dynamic Island if you have a Pro model. But you’ll also want to protect your phone from accidental drops and scratches, so next, have a look at our roundup of the best cases for your new iPhone 14 …
If you are upgrading from an older generation of iPhone, be aware that existing cases will not fit your new iPhone 14. The rear camera and volume button arrangements have changed just enough to make iPhone 13 cases incompatible.

We compare the best choices from Apple, and some of our favorite accessory brands — whether you are looking for sleek clear case or something super rugged, our roundup has something suited for your preferences.
