The new iPhone 7 & 7 Plus may not even be announced yet, but already we are already seeing iPhone 7 cases and covers being released into the wild. What can we learn about the new iPhone from the leaked case images?
It's always a risk for accessory makers to release a case for an unreleased device. Apple closely guards their final specifications of their devices, and many case makers obtain mock-ups from less than reputable sources. However, the close we get to the announcement of the new iPhone 7 the more sure we can be of the final size and form factor.
iPhone 7 cases are arriving already in some select stores and Pocket-Lint has reported on a case photo that was reportedly taken from a store in the UK. The case isn't much to look at, but we can learn a few things about the new iPhone 7 design from it, namely:
- • The headphone jack has been removed
- • There is a larger cutout for the iPhone 7 Plus camera to accommodate the dual lens camera
- • The form factor and thickness of the iPhone 7 isn't changing in any significant way
Spigen has also released some images of their upcoming cases which show the larger camera opening as well. From this, we can tell that the dual-lens camera is a guaranteed feature on the iPhone 7 Plus.
There hasn't been any mention of an iPhone 7 Pro recently, nor have there been any case leaks which leads us to believe there will not be an iPhone 7 Pro announced at the September 7th event.
Of course, our workshop here at Pad & Quill and artisans are hard at work readying all new and improved iPhone 7 Cases and iPhone 7 Plus Cases. Sign up to our one-time special announcement list to be the very first to hear about the new cases and covers!
