Today, we’ll show you how easy it is to install the Otterbox Defender case on the iPhone 11 Pro Max and, more importantly, how to take it off. During this blog, we’ll be showing you every step with a series of easy to follow instructions and accompanying video.
Taking the case out of the box, you’ll find it ready assembled so you’ll need to take it apart before you begin. The Defender comes in 3 sections, the flexible rubbery outer shell and the two part interlocking inner frame.
Taking off the outer shell requires peeling away the edges to get to the frame underneath. There’s a seam that runs along the entire edge of the screen. Using your fingernail or a thin object, pry the outer layer off starting at the bottom and working your way to the top. If you can’t find a tool suitable for this then you can lift out the rubber cap over the lightening port and use it to pull at the outer shell until it separates from the inner casing.
Now you’ve removed the outer layer, you need to separate the two halves of the inner shell. Along the edges, you’ll find a series of clips and notches holding the two together. Starting with the side, unclip the latches and begin prying each catch apart, working your way around the edges, until the top layer comes away. You’ll know how many there are from the indication arrows embedded on the back.
This is the same process for removing the case from the phone, so simply follow these steps when the time comes to take off the case.
Now the case is ready to insert the phone. Lay your note to into the base and place the top section over the top of the phone. Be sure you’ve placed the phone in the right way up by matching the phone’s cutouts with the lightning port on the bottom.
Press down gently on the top of the frame to push the clips back into place. Work your way around the edges, pushing down each clip to check that it’s secure.
Next, take the rubber outer layer and place the phone inside end first. To finish the installation, simply push the edges back into place, pushing up from the back before pressing it in from the sides.
Now your iPhone 11 Pro Max is fully protected from whatever life throws at it. Although the case is quite thick, it’s worth the additional weight for giving you peace of mind.
This case is great for covering your phone at work on a construction site, out on a hike or bike ride or even just for the cautious phone user. Otterbox defender is one of the top protective phone cases on the market and still remains the number one choice for keeping your phone in top condition over its lifetime.
