Apple has officially announced the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, case manufacturers have been racing to launch compatible accessories. This guide highlights the best iPhone 7 and 7 Plus cases to hit the market as customers await initial shipments of the new devices.
One the Event organised by “See you on the 7th” event, Apple briefly flashed their official line of iPhone 7 cases to audience members. But now that the cases appear on Apple’s site, it’s easy to see that they incorporate the same look and feel as previous generations.
Like years past, Apple has released a leather case in an assortment of colors, including a Project(RED) version. Regardless of which color you choose, the leather case retails for $45 for the iPhone 7 and $49 for the iPhone 7 Plus on Apple’s website.
If more power is needed, Apple’s Smart Battery Case comes to the rescue without sacrificing protection. Apple claims that it will increase talk time up to 26 hours and give users up to 22 hours of LTE internet surfing time for greater productivity. The elastomer hinge makes for easy switching between cases or removing it entirely when you want to go without a case completely.
Belkin has been making accessories for Apple long before there was an iPhone — and this year is no exception with plenty of Apple-related gear.
In the iPhone 7 category, Belkin’s Air Protect SheerForce Case features a transparent impact-resistant exterior with button protection and wide dock compatibility. It’s also available in your choice of five colors (Black, Rose Gold, Gold, Space Gray and Silver) to coordinate with every finish.
The iPhone 7 version currently retails for $24.99 on Belkin’s site, while the iPhone 7 Plus case is $29.99.
Ballistic has also thrown its hat into the case market for the iPhone 7, with 12 choices of colors and designs.
The Ballistic Urbanite Select series comes in Faux Wood Grain or Black and sells for $30 on Ballistic’s site.
Want to showcase that new Jet Black finish? Instead of obscuring Apple’s styling, the PureView Clear Case from Silk Innovation features shock absorbent edges without masking the sleek details that make iPhones attractive. The case also features elevated front and rear lifters to guard the screen and backplate from scratches — all with an ultra-slim profile.
The PureView Clear Case sells for $13.97 on Amazon.com. The same price applies to both the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus versions.
