OtterBox offers a range of protective iPhone cases with Darth Vader, BB-8, and other heroes and villains from the saga. Even better, these are all 15% off on Monday, May 4.

There’s a wide selection for the 2020 iPhone SE, as well as older models. But nothing for the iPhone 11 series.

Best Star Wars games for iPhone and iPad

Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga debuted years ago, but it’s still one of the best ways to enjoy battling the Empire. Play through the original six movies, from Tatooine to Naboo. This iPhone/iPad app even supports controllers.

Formerly a PC game, Star Wars; Knights of the Old Republic eventually made the jump to iPhone and iPad practically unchanged.

Disney’s Star Wars app includes an augmented reality Force Trainer, in which you use your iPhone as a light saber against a remote. And there’s an AR version of the Child from The Mandalorian. Plus movie and TV show news, audio clips and much more.

Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes is a brawler in which players build a team of fighters from all the movies, from Darth Maul to Rey.

And don’t forget the movies

Star Wars: The Rise Skywalker debuted today on Disney+. So did the final episode of The Clone Wars TV show. Plus, there’s a behind-the-scenes series about The Mandalorian.

Naturally, Disney’s streaming service includes all the previous movies. Watching Rogue One and then going straight to A New Hope is highly recommended.
