Starting at $999, £999 and AU$1,579, the iPhone X is definitely a phone you'll want to protect if you choose to buy one. And while it doesn't ship until Nov. 3, we've got plenty of iPhone X cases in-house already and more on the way. So get started early on picking that perfect case that will protect your investment (and be compatible with wireless charging).

We're making judgments on these cases based on the experiences we've had with their predecessors designed for earlier iPhone 6/6S/7 models and their Plus equivalents.

OtterBox Symmetry Series

The OtterBox Symmetry Series is the company's most stylish case and is both fairly slim and protective (it's similar to Speck's cases, which certainly influenced OtterBox's design). It comes in a variety of color options and starts at $40 (£30, no Australian shipping but roughly converts to AU$50).

OtterBox Strada

One of my favorite folio cases -- the OtterBox Strada -- is back for the Phone X. It's highly protective and has a card slot on the inside of the cover that allows you to store a single credit card and perhaps a driver's license or some money. Handy, since Apple Pay still isn't universally accepted yet.

Nomad Clear Case

Nomad's making a variety of cases for the iPhone X, including its two-tone clear case that features a partial leather back. It's $40 -- £30 or AU$45 converted -- and the genuine Horween leather is supposed to wear in well, darkening up a bit with a nice patina.

There's also a folio version of the case for $50 (£40 or AU$65 converted, but no international shipping) as well as all-leather versions (both folio and nonfolio).

Nomad Card Case

This is Nomad's $40 Card Case (approximately £30 or AU$50). We're still waiting to confirm whether you'll be able to wirelessly charge your iPhone X with this case on since it's a little bit thicker than Nomad's other cases.

The extra-tough Monarch Series costs $60 (£48 or AU$78 converted, free worldwide shipping).

Spigen Rugged Armor

Spigen's Rugged Armor case gives you a little more protection than some of the company's slim cases. Like Spigen's other cases it's affordable, costing $13 (£11 or AU$16 converted). The $17 (£13 or AU$22) Tough Armor is even tougher, but it's not a particularly attractive case.

Silk PureView Queen of Diamonds case

Silk makes several affordable cases for the iPhone X. Available in a few different colors, its Grip Base case is a simple plastic case, but it costs $12 (£10 or AU$15 converted), is slim and has a textured finish that helps keep your phone from sliding out of your hand.

My favorite new Silk case is the $14 (£12 or AU$20 converted) PureView case, which is also referred to as the Queen of Diamonds case for its textured finish.
