It may be hard to pick the best Google Pixel 5 case because there will be so many options.

Safe and stylish

Caseology Parallax

Staff Pick

This mesmerizing case has protected my last two Pixels with grace, and the colorways for the Pixel 5 are quite fetching. The Aqua Green will fit the green Pixel 5 perfectly while Burgundy and Navy Blue jazz up the black Pixel 5.

Long-term protection

Tudia Dualshield Merge Series

If you want a heavy-duty case without a heavy-duty price, Tudia has been the go-to for years. The Merge Series gives you the impact protection and grip of a flexible TPU sleeve with the sturdiness of a polycarbonate back.

Machine washable

Google Fabric Case

Google's fabric cases are luxurious and eco-friendly, crafted from 70% recycled materials, and given a microfiber lining to keep the Pixel 5 in place and free of scratches.

Textured for grip

Spigen Liquid Air

This slim case won't but up your new Pixel 5, but it will add extra grip thanks to its triangular grooves. You still get some air cushions in the corners to protect against drops, but no bulkiness.

If you hate cases, Totallee is for you. This ultra-thin Google Pixel 5 case comes in clear or black and is so thin and comfortable you'll forget your phone even has a case on.

Scratch protection

Anccer Colorful Series

This super slim Google Pixel 5 case won't give you much drop protection, but it'll add grip and a cool color while also protecting your new Pixel from scratches and scuffs.

Can't beat a classic

Caseology Legion for Pixel 5

This case is a lot more understated than the bold colors of the Parallax, but it will stand the test of time. Legion cases are some of Caseology's most dependable and I'm grateful it's available for the Pixel 5.

From $15 at Amazon $19 at Walmart

Almost invisible

TopACE Slim Crystal

Want that mint green metallic sheen of your Pixel 5 on full display while still keeping it protected from dents and dings? TopACE's clear case has you covered.

Belt clip included

OtterBox Defender Series

OtterBox is the Kleenex of the phone case world for a reason: it's darn good at protecting a phone through drops, falls, and the occasional throw. The Defender Series is the classic multi-layer OtterBox case, and this one even comes with a belt clip/kickstand.

$41 at Amazon

Sustainable and biodegradable

Pela Eco-Friendly Phone Case

The Pixel 5 is Google's most sustainably-made phone yet, so why would you undo all that work with a landfill-bound plastic case? These flexible, durable cases are biodegradable and sustainably made, and there are even charity-benefitting designs.

From $45 at Pela

Clearly protective

Ghostek Covert

Ghostek's Google Pixel 5 case may be more translucent than transparent, but it still lets the Pixel branding shine through while protecting it from nasty drops and scrapes.

$15 at Amazon $15 at Walmart

Grip without girth

Luibor Silicone

What this case lacks in fun colors it makes up for in grip and a slim profile. The diamond texture across the back should add grip no matter which way you hold it, and there's also hatching across the sides.

$9 at Amazon

Keep it together

Haii Leather Wallet

Who needs to carry a separate wallet when there are great leather folios out there like this? Available in four colors, you can fit two cards plus cash inside the cover, which doubles as a kickstand.

$11 at Amazon

What are the best cases for your Pixel 5?

The Google Pixel 5 is one of the best Android phones around and it deserves only the best cases to protect it. The Caseology Parallax, in particular, is an excellent Google Pixel 5 case because not only does it offer air cushion impact protection and a nice lip around the camera, it has undeniable style. Skip the boring black and get you something bold, like the gold-accented Navy Blue, and the Aqua Green with a green Pixel 5 will look killer!

If you need something a little slimmer we'd recommend the excellent Anccer Colorful Series, which comes in a black that matches the matte black Pixel 5 perfectly and a vivid blue for those of us who need something cooler. Thin cases also have the benefit of causing less interference with wireless chargers, which is important since the Pixel 5 is nitpicky about chargers.

Need more suggestions? That's okay, we have dedicated collections dedicated to the best heavy duty cases, best clear cases, and the best wallet cases for the Pixel 5, ensuring that no matter what your style, there's a case out there perfect for you. While you're guarding the back, you need to protect that glass touchscreen, too, with a great screen protector that will keep your screen free of scratches, smudges, and the dreaded shatter from a bad drop.

Meta launched Llama 2, its large language model, in July 2023, and in April, the company released the latest versions of its AI models, called Llama 3 .

As part of Apple Intelligence, Apple has announced a partnership with OpenAI that will allow Siri to access ChatGPT directly in iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS Sequoia to provide better responses in relevant situations.

macOS Sequoia Adds iCloud Support for macOS 15 Virtual Machines

Apple is introducing a notable enhancement to its virtualization framework in macOS Sequoia by enabling Mac users to sign into iCloud within macOS virtual machines (VMs). Previously, users could not sign into iCloud on macOS VMs, which limited the framework's utility for developers needing to test iCloud features and for users looking to sync their apps with iCloud. As spotted by ArsTechnica , macOS Sequoia removes that barrier, provided that both the host and guest operating systems are macOS 15 or newer. The feature will be available on Apple silicon Macs, but it has some limitations. Developers aiming to run older macOS versions alongside macOS 15 in a VM or those who upgrade VMs from older macOS versions will not be able to sign into iCloud on the VM. Only brand-new VMs created from a macOS 15 install image (an .ipsw file) can utilize iCloud and services related to Apple Account (formerly Apple ID). Apple's virtualization framework documentation explains : "Wh
