    Default Cases for iPhone 7/7 Plus

    I recently returned a 7 Plus and I may be trying to get a regular Jet Black 7, but I have a question about cases. I have an Otterbox Commuter case for a regular iPhone 6s. Will this case fit a regular 7 since the camera bump didn't appear to change too much? I purchased an Apple silicone case for the 7 Plus before I decided to return it, and it fits my 6s Plus just fine. The larger camera opening on the back is a little off considering the differences in the camera bump, but it still fits. Just wondering if anyone has tried a 6s case with the regular 7? Thanks for all replies!

    Sorry while it's the same dimensions the 6s case won't work on the 7.
    I myself am using a commuter made for the 7; it'll work in reverse but not the other way around

    Return it.. won't work. As mentioned the Camera will not line up correctly. So you're better off returning it. My wife is using the new leather iPhone 7 case for her 6, and that works, it just adds a drop more of an opening around the camera. The reverse blocks it.

    Apples smart battery case for 7. Love not having to worry about battery life. It's also not as bulky as most other battery cases and it feels nice in hand. You can also charge it with lightning cable instead of USB like other battery cases which is very nice.

    Yeah..There slightly difference in camera dimensions. The Camera will not line up correctly if you are using 6s cases in iPhone 7. So I think its better to ordered new iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus case.

    Just to kind of repeat what everyone else is saying here. iPhone 7 cases will work with iPhone 6/6S but not the other way around. There are a few cases - I have one made by a company called Slik - it is a knock off of Spigen - and it has a large camera opening and works with the 6/6S and 7 but those cases are few are far in between.

    Do you like fancy cases? If you say a YES, you are going to love this heavy duty protection case for iPhone 7 from Ringke available at Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Ringke-Protec...mUvbUpU2839154.

    If it's hard plastic you can modify it the way I did to this Mophie:
