    I just googled and confirmed 7+ cases should fit
    the 8+. That is good to know if this is really true

    Maybe, the 8 and 8 Plus are a little thicker than 7 and 7 Plus. So I wouldn’t bet on every case fitting.

    On the Apple accessory website, they list iPhone 7 Plus & 8 Plus together, too...

    So a full body skin should fit as well? Still debating between a case or not.

    I got away with a low profile case, and no glass protector for a year, with my iPhone 7 "knock on wood," I still have a week to get through

    I got many scratches on the face of my iPhone 7 within a week. I think it had something to do with the headphones and phone being in the same pocket. So I'll probably go for the skins.

    Or you could install a tempered glass screen protector.

    I'm also assuming that the Smart Battery Case for the iPhone 7 should fit the iPhone 8

    That’s what I thought but then Apple’s website does not include the iPhone 8 in the description of the Smart Battery Case.

    I was just thinking about this and thought I’d reiterate my point that I’m not entirely positive 7 Plus cases will fit the 8 Plus. Taking into account Apple selling 7 Plus/8 Plus cases even. The 8’s are a little thicker than 7’s as I said, so an 8 Plus case would definitely fit on a 7 Plus, albeit ever so slightly loose. However since the 7 Plus is slightly thinner than the 8 Plus I wouldn’t count on every case for 7 Plus fitting the 8 Plus though I’m sure there are a decent number that will.

    Well that could make me change my mind about the 8 Plus versus the X.

    Yeah the 8 Plus is 0.4mm thicker than the 7 Plus.

    They fit, but very snuggly. I had a time removing one from my 8 Plus, and I was beginning to think it wasn’t going to come off without bending the phone.

    I'm using my Sapphire Blue Apple Leather case with no issue, I've used it (at least most of the time) since May on a 7 Plus. I think most cases should work fine unless they are a really tight fit on a 7 Plus.

    I use LoopyCases and they fit my 8+. The only one I haven't tried is my Lifeproof Fré. I will say though, that I reached out to Lifeproof and they said because of how tight the cases fit, that the 7/7+ cases will NOT fit the 8/8+. Could be that they told me that to get me to buy a new one, lol, but the reason I reached out to begin with was because I suspected the fit wouldn't be just right.

    The Apple store told me yesterday that the cases for the 7/7 Plus and 8/8 Plus are exactly the same.

    I have a VRS Design Duo Guard and the case fits just fine. I have noticed the Apple logo is a bit lower in the cut out.

    I noticed this as well and it was driving me bonkers. My OCD couldn’t handle a unsymmetrical case circle and Apple logo. The Apple logo must be perfect all around in a circle of a case.

    I'm with you! I had to switch to a case without a cut out which sucks because that is my favorite case! I put a Spigen case on and it's a little better, but not enough for me to keep it on. I need that logo dead smack in the middle! Just like Apple to change the position!

    I can confirm the new leather ones labeled as 8 plus are not. They don’t fit as snug.
