Sometimes. The standard iPhone 14 is only marginally (0.01 inches) thicker than the 13, so some cases do indeed work. But Apple has also tweaked the location of its volume and sleep/wake buttons, so if if an iPhone 13 case was built with ultra-precise button placement, you might be out of luck. Your best bet is to hold off on a buying an iPhone 14 case until you can test things out.

This might sound obvious, but you’ll absolutely need a new case if you’re getting an iPhone 14 Plus. There’s no equivalent in the iPhone 13 lineup.

Does an iPhone 13 Pro case fit the iPhone 14 Pro?

No. That’s because the 14 Pro is simultaneously taller, thicker, and narrower than its predecessor. On top of that the phone has relocated buttons and a bigger camera bump, so new cutout dimensions are needed.
