Most screen protectors for the iPhone 11 Pro Max and the iPhone XS Max fit the PinePhone (if the top notch is not obscured by a black foil or similar).
The Pine store got official cases:
- PinePhone Hard Protective Case
- PinePhone Soft TPU Protective Case - "Reduce Digital Gap" Donation Program
Tight-fit cases of other phones can't be alienated for the PinePhone due as most times the proportions and/or camera notch won't fit. The phone can however also be used with "phone sleeves", such as those from fitBAG.
