Animal Crossing New Horizons: How to Change Nook Phone Case

You can change the case on your Nook Phone in Animal Crossing New Horizons. Here's how.

There are plenty of new items to spend your hard earned Bells and Nook Miles on in Animal Crossing New Horizons, including a customizable phone case. Problem is, the game doesn't do a great job at explaining how to actually put it onto the back of your phone, so we've put together a guide on how to do so. We'll cover where to purchase the new phone case and then lead you through applying it to your Nook Phone.

How to Change Nook Phone Case in Animal Crossing New Horizons

To be able to change the phone case on your Nook Phone in Animal Crossing New Horizons, you'll need to do the following:

  1. Complete the customization workshop given by Tom Nook.
  2. You'll trigger this around day 6, and will be given some Customization Kits.
  3. Buy the Phone Case from the Nook Stop
  4. You can head to a workbench with some of these kits, and the new phone case. Select 'Customize Something' and you'll be able to select and change the phone case.

Where to Buy the New Phone Case

You can pick up the new phone case kit by heading to a Nook Stop terminal (for more on Nook Miles head here). From here, scroll through the catalogue, the phone case is in there once you've done the customization workshop. You'll only need to buy it once to have access to a wide range of colors.
