Pick up an iPhone 7 case to keep your Apple handset safe and stylish – we’ve got the case for you in our handy list.
It has been a long time since the release of the iPhone 7 in 2016, and a lot has changed in smartphone design since that point. But at lower prices than ever, the handset remains a great value option for anyone who wants iOS functionality at a discount.
Being an older handset gives it another benefit: an enormous variety of cases have come on the market since its release, helped by the fact that iPhone 8 cases will fit the device too for the most part given that they share so much design-wise.
And now that the iPhone SE 2020 has been released, which is virtually the same size, you have even more options to protect your phone.
Whether you’re hunting around for something to improve your phone’s style, customize it just a bit, or to encase it in solid protective layers, there are lots of options at every price point. Read on for our pick of the best iPhone 7 cases currently on the market.
These are products that we haven’t had in our test labs, but based on our experts’ opinion and knowledge of the most reputable brands around, we think these are worth looking at.
Our selections, ranked with newer additions at the top, take into account online reviews, brand reputation, product capability, or unique features, to help you pick through the maze of choices available to you.
Above many things, the iPhone 7 is a slim beast – that’s part of its appeal. It is a small handset, and therefore a blessing for those with smaller hands. Bulky cases can detract from this, but the official Apple Silicone Case is pleasingly slim.
Boasting a grippy material which also improves resistance to scratches, shocks and falls, and available in a variety of color choices, this is an attractive no-fuss option for those looking for simple protection and decent looks. It’s available directly from Apple.
Taking the idea of no-fuss to its logical conclusion, we enter the large and sometimes dangerous land of the ultra-budget phone case.
Mostly these are chunky plastic affairs that hold onto the various oils of the human hand with gusto, but there are nonetheless some worth considering if price is your main concern.
The Syncwire UltraRock is solid, dependable and will offer reasonable protection from scuffs, scrapes and drops – but don’t expect more than that. It’s available from Amazon.
Sometimes simple cuts it – when nothing more is needed than protection, there are many phone cases which fit the bill.
But sometimes a little moreis needed, sometimes you might want something that’s a little left-field, and the Universe by OtterBox is just that.
Offering protection and decent looks, it also features a mad, swappable module system. A battery, a card reader, camera parts and more can be added to augment the iPhone experience. This is one for those looking for something different in their life. You can buy it direct from OtterBox.
Options for those who like to bundle their cards and cash with their smartphone in a case tend to be mostly of one persuasion – the foldable wallet case.
While these are practical, they have trade-offs in terms of the relatively cumbersome rear, however there are certain options which keep a slim profile as well as providing practical storage.
The endlessly customizable Jimmycase wallet case is one such example. With space for cash and cards on the rear, it also provides protection from drops, shocks and falls and looks good doing so. It’s available directly from Jimmycase.
Wrappers, a small company based in the UK, has been making bespoke fabric pouches and cases for Apple devices for over a decade. This option from the firm is an Alcantara pouch in a fetching shade of lilac, which will offer nice protection from scratches and scrapes.
We particularly like the choice of fabric, recently evoked by Microsoft with its Surface line, which is soft, and which offers a nice premium feel. It’s available from Wrappers UK.
It is well known that, of the many qualities of the iPhone 7, its battery life is not one. While most will be able to stretch the device to last through a day of usage, there are many who will not.
The battery case is a life-saver in such situations, and this option from Kilponen is a good choice for many.
Though bulky, it makes up for this with a battery capacity roughly three times that of the iPhone, in theory tripling battery life, and all for a very small outlay. This is available from Amazon.
There is something about wood, good honest grain – the smell and the feel are difficult to match.
