We round up the best iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus cases, covers and protectors that you can buy right now, to keep your shiny new Apple iPhone safe from scratches and dents.
We’re in a bit of a quandary when it comes to wrapping up our sexy new iPhone 7 in a protective case. On one hand, we absolutely love the shiny, sleek design and certainly don’t want to hide away those good looks beneath a layer of durable polycarbonate. On the other hand, we really can’t stand the thought of that beautiful 4.7-inch screen – or 5.5-inch if you choose the iPhone 7 Plus – cracking apart as the phone slams down onto the pavement.
Thankfully there are a good range of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus cases and covers already available. From super-thin gel cases that don’t mask Apple’s slick design, to chunky Military-grade covers that can withstand all sorts of abuse, you’re bound to find something you like.
Here’s our pick of the best cases for your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus.
Olixar Ultra-Thin iPhone 7 Gel Case
A solid compromise between not spoiling your iPhone 7 with a case while still adding some form of protection is the super-slim Gel Case from Olixar.
You can pick up this cover in a variety of cool colours, or transparent if you’d rather enjoy the natural hues of your new Apple device. And it’s so thin that you’ll barely add any bulk, while also protecting that gorgeous frame from damage if the iPhone 7 is dropped.
The Olixar Ultra-Thin iPhone 7 Gel Case costs £7.99 from MobileFun
FlexiShield iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus Gel Case
Another gel case that’s super slender, adding next to no bulk to your shiny new iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus. The FlexiShield case has a non-slip coating to help keep the handset firmly in your grip, while the ‘bling’ gold finish will certainly turn heads on the bus.
Most importantly, the edges of the case jut out above the screen, to help protect the display if the case is accidentally dropped.
Flexishield’s Gel Case for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus costs £6.99 from MobileFun
Caseology Envoy Series Case for iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus
This Caseology cover is constructed from two separate layers, one rugged TPU and the other a suitably tough polycarbonate, giving you plenty of reassuring protection for your new Apple handset. Thankfully it isn’t too bulky despite this dual layer design, so the iPhone 7’s sexy slimline finish isn’t completely ruined.
You can pick up the case in a choice of carbon fibre black or leather navy blue for the iPhone 7, or carbon fibre black for iPhone 7 Plus.
The Caseology Envoy Series Case for iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus costs £19.99 from MobileFun
Mujjo Leather-Style Wallet Case for iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus
This ‘wallet case’ from Mujjo has a soft leather texture which wraps around your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus’ frame, adding an extra layer of protection. You get a choice between tan and grey colours, for a light or dark finish.
If you’d rather not carry around a separate wallet on your night out, the good news is that the Mujjo case has a nifty pocket that can store a couple of cards and an emergency tenner for a cheeky donner. Bear in mind this is one of the more expensive cases out there, however.
The Mujjo Leather-Style Wallet Case for iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus costs £34.99 from MobileFun
Zizo Bolt Series iPhone 7 Tough Case & Belt Clip
If you’re super paranoid about harming your precious new iPhone 7, or you want the best possible protection when hitting the great outdoors, then the Zizo Bolt case is a solid bet. This rugged case is Military Standard 810-G drop test compliant, so your phone should survive a sudden drop and other terrifying impacts.
The Tough Case comes with a handy belt clip and 40cm lanyard, so you can secure the iPhone 7 during physical activities. There’s a kickstand around the back, and you also get a screen protector included in the box. Colour choices are red and black.
The Zizo Bolt Series iPhone 7 Tough Case & Belt Clip costs £24.99 from MobileFun
