Speck’s Presidio Grip iPhone 7 cases handle everyday clumsiness with ease

By Anthony Bouchard on Nov 1, 2016

Anyone who knows me personally knows I’m a huge fan of Speck’s cases because they keep a slim form factor, and yet they pack a lot of drop protection and a superior anti-slip feel in your hand into that compact package.

Starting with the iPhone 7 & 7 Plus, Speck has re-worked their case lineup into what’s being dubbed the Presidio series, which features an all new drop protection technology they’re calling Impactium. Read More

By Cody Lee on Oct 20, 2016

Stick-on (or adhesive) wallets are the perfect solution for folks who want to leave their wallet at home, but hate the bulkiness of dedicated cases.

Explo-Sung case makes your iPhone look like an exploded Galaxy Note 7

By Christian Zibreg on Oct 20, 2016

I wish I thought about this: someone’s actually made a case with a decal designed to make your iPhone look like an exploded Galaxy Note 7 from Samsung. Aptly named Explo-Sung iPhone Skin, it’s available for all iPhones from the iPhone 5 onward. The $24.95 case is made by a company called UniqFind which happens to sell a range of skins for Mac notebooks and iOS devices on Amazon. Read More

 

Waterproof cases for iPhone 7

By Cody Lee on Oct 12, 2016

The new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are “water resistant” (though Apple’s warranty doesn’t cover liquid damage), and that’s fine for accidental spills and splashes, but it’s not good enough protection for taking pictures in the pool. For that, you’re going to want a waterproof case.

Since the iPhone 7 is still rather new, there aren’t a ton of waterproof cases available for it just yet—popular accessory-maker Lifeproof still says ‘Coming Soon’ on its website—but we were able to put together a list of some solid options based on feedback and features. Read More

 

Battery cases for your new iPhone 7

By Cody Lee on Oct 7, 2016

Apple says the iPhone 7 gets up to two more hours of power over the iPhone 6s, and the iPhone 7 Plus gets an additional hour over its predecessor. But folks wanting true all-day battery life, or erratic all-weekend battery life, are still going to need some help.

That’s where battery cases come in. A battery case can double (or more) your iPhone’s battery life. There aren’t a ton of them available for the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus yet, but we’ve put together a list of some solid options based on price and customer feedback. Read More

 

Some great wallet cases for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus

By Cody Lee on Sep 26, 2016

The wallet case is a popular choice for iPhone owners, as it combines two things that you’d normally have to carry separately—your phone and wallet—into one easy-to-cary item. Thus, we thought it would be helpful if we put together a list of some great wallet cases for the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.

As usual, we based our selections on factors like personal experience, price, and customer feedback. We also paid attention to design—we wanted a mix of slot and folio cases—and availability. Because the iPhone 7 was just released, a lot of case-makers don’t have wallet options available yet.

Some heavy duty cases for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus

By Cody Lee on Sep 23, 2016

Although Apple has taken some major steps this year to make the iPhone more durable, the device is still very susceptible to bumps and scratches. This is why we recommend putting a case on your smartphone if you want it to stay in like-new condition.

We’ve already recommended a number of different cases, but for those who work and use their phones in more harsh environments, a heavy-duty case is the only way to go. Here are a few we like so far that are available for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus right now. Read More
