Pricey iPhones need good protective cases and Speck has introduced a line of cases for the newest iPhones the company says is its toughest ever.

The Presidio ULTRA cases for iPhone 8, 8 Plus and the thousand dollar iPhone X, features four layers of protection Speck says passed a drop test from a height of 15 feet.

Speck gives the user a choice on how much protection your phone needs with a shock-absorbing rubber bumper that can be removed when you need a slimmer iPhone profile or added when the cutting calls for additional durability.
