Best iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus cases


WhistleOut
19 December 2016

It's important to use protection, especially when you're handling a $1,000 plus smartphone. If you've picked up a new iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, here are some of the best case options available to you.

Official Apple Case

Apple's official iPhone cases aren't overly fancy, but their simplicity works well with the iPhone 7's minimalist design. Cases are available in a choice of silicone or leather, with leather setting you back a little bit more. Both materials are quite durable, but the leather options are more prone to wear, tear and discolouration.

From $55

Apple Smart Battery Case

Apple also has an official battery case available for the iPhone 7, packing an additional 2,365mAh of battery. While the rear-facing battery bump is a little unsightly, it's surprisingly ergonomic compared to other battery case options on the market.

The Smart Battery Case is only compatible with the iPhone 7. A Smart Battery Case is not available for the iPhone 7 Plus.

$165

Jack Spade & Kate Spade Cases

If you're after an iPhone case with a bit more fashion cred, the Jack Spade and Kate Spade range are designed with the labels' respective signature colours and materials. 

From $59.95

EFM Aspen Case Armour

EFM's Aspen Case Armour is manufactured using D30, an impact resistant gel that adds shock protection in a comparatively bulk-free way. Used in combination with high-grade TPU, Aspen Case Armour should comfortably protect your iPhone 7 from drops of around 1 metre. 

$49

Incipio Rugged Polymer Case

Incipio's Rugged Polymer case is rugged without being overly bulky. It's said to keep your iPhone safe from drops as high as 1.5 metres, and the grippy texture should help the phone in your hands. 

From $29.95

3SIXT Neocase

3SIXT's Neocase is one of those wallet smartphone case hybrids, but with a twist. Your iPhone sits in its own case that magnetically attaches to the inside of the wallet. If you don't want to carry the entire case around, you can just detach the phone portion and leave the wallet behind.

$39.95

3SIXT Metro Folio

3SIXT's Metro Folio is a slimmer wallet option with space for two cards. It also works as a kickstand, for when you're too lazy to hold your phone. 

$39.95

3SIXT Aramid

3SIXT's Aramid iPhone case is made from kevlar. Yep, the same sort of kevlar used to make ballistics vests. While the material is meant to be five times stronger than steal, the thin and light case only adds about 10g to the weight of your iPhone. 

$59.95

3SIXT Oakland

3SIXT's Oakland iPhone case feels a little old timey, blending leather and wood. If you want your phone to look like grandma's kitchen table, 3SIXT has you covered. 

$34.95

Griffin Survivor

If you really want a rugged case, Griffin's Survivor could be a safe bet. The bulky case is said to protect your iPhone 7 against drops as high as 3m. Notably, Griffin says it drop-tests on concrete. There's also a belt holster in the box, in case you feel like reliving the '90s. 

$69.95
