APPLE'S LATEST SMARTPHONE, the iPhone 7, might be nice to look at, but even tho it's tougher than the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6 before it, it's still likely to pick up scuffs and smash into bits if you drop it.
With that in mind, we've rounded up the best iPhone 7 cases and covers below.
Olixar Ultra-Thin case
The iPhone 7 is one of the best-looking smartphones on the market, so chance are you don't really want to hide it away inside a case. Olixar claims to have the answer with its Ultra-Thin iPhone 7 case, that's made from 100% transparent glass and adding no extra bulk to the pocket-friendly smartphone. Despite it's barely-there design, Olixar promises that the case will offer "durable protection against damage."
Thunder Apparel 'No Drama' case
If you're still struggling to buy a Christmas present for the metalhead in your life, indie clothing brand Thunder Apparel might have the answer. With the launch of its new iPhone case line, which offers covers for the iPhone 5 and 5SE, iPhone 6 and 6S and the spanking-new iPhone 7, Thunder Apparel has taken the famous comedy/tragedy masks and given it an, er, black metal twist. The case comes crafted out of real maple hardwood, so it should survive the mosh pit.
Mujjo Leather Wallet Case
Mujjo is well known for its luxurious accessories, and its Leather Wallet Case for the iPhone 7 is no different. The suede lining means your iPhone 7 will never get scuffed, while Mujjo's Moulded Edge Technology offers enhanced durability to protect against any nasty drops. As its name suggests, the case also doubles up as a wallet, offering a pouch for your cards on the rear.
While flip covers aren't everybody's cup of tea, Moshi's SenseCover offers something a bit different, allowing you to answer calls, check the time and swipe off alarms without flipping it open. Not only that, the brushed aluminum-eqsue case packs military-grade drop protection, and folds out into a nifty stand for watching videos on your iPhone 7.
Grovemade leather and maple case
The case comes crafted from, wait for it, ‘eastern hard rock maple' and ‘domestic vegetable tanned leather', which given the case's price tag, we presume is a good thing. It's as functional as it is stylish too, and comes with wood power and volume buttons and access to all of the iPhone 7's ports.
