Now that it’s official – the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus share the same dimensions as the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus – if you’re thinking of switching you might be wondering if you could still continue using your current cases, particularly if they have been personalized one way or another.
Unfortunately, nope, you will have to re-personalize your new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus cases due to the fact that the old cases won’t fit the new dual camera and stereo speakers at the back of the phone.
By the way, if you’re going to go for the new jet black color that is available for the latest iPhone in the family, you will seriously want to consider giving it the protection it deserves. As glossy and as hard as jet black iPhones are, its "high shine" factor may show them scratches a lot clearer than iPhones of other colors. That’s definitely something to think about.
Before we check out the iPhone 7 cases, let’s look at what’s being offered at the official store first.
