You’ve just bought an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus but you also want to protect your investment. To do that you’ll need a case that not only adds a bit of colour but also keeps it safe.
One of the worst things you’ll hear is the sound of your iPhone hitting the ground and that crunch is even worse if you don’t have a case on it.
Not only will you have scratches but there’s also a chance you’ll have a cracked screen.
Here is the biggest round up of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus cases.
There are models that are fashionable, practical, super protective, thin and almost unnoticeable.
Some can handle a drop from up to 3m in height and one is even made of kevlar to make it five times stronger than steel.
