This week’s iPhone-case roundup comes with a bit of leather, some advanced plastics, and everyone’s favorite billionaire superhero. But the real star is a collection of cases that will make you happy no matter which nation turns out to have the best soccer team.
The World Cup (iPhone 4, 4s, 5 and 5s; $48) is a bundle of ten cases that celebrate this year’s international soccer games.
Each plastic case features the logo of a prominent soccer team.
The Bruno (iPhone 5 and 5s; $80) is a leather case that securely attaches to your clothing thanks to a sturdy metal clip.

The Mandala (iPhone 4, 4s, 5 and 5s; $4 to $19) features interchangeable designs that sport a series of handmade floral patterns designed to help liven up your day.
