    I'm looking to buy a saddle brown leather case for the pre-ordered iPhone 8. After the event it sounded like all iPhone 7 cases would fit the 8 so I placed an order for the Apple iPhone 7 leather case from a Norwegian retailer. Now I see that they're also getting a shipment of the same case for iPhone 7/8 together with the new phones on Sep 22. Comparing the model numbers to what's listed at Apple the one I ordered has a different model number than the "new" one.

    Does anyone know whether or not these is a difference? I can get the iPhone 7 one at a discount which would be nice to take advantage of if they're the same case anyway.

    iPhone 7: MMY22ZM/A
    iPhone 7/8: MQH72ZM/A

    Just about everything seen / read online, and from case dealers say the 7 will fit the 8. Whatever works best for you comfort and price wise is the way to go.

    I’m not 100% sure, but I would recommend getting it from Apple directly. It’s better to be safe.

    I agree, I bought the Apple leather dark aubergine for my iPhone 8 from the Apple store and it said iPhone 7 or 8

    You simply can’t go wrong with an Apple Leather case.

    I really like how dark this one is, it’s darker then the black

    I just ordered the dark aubergine case for my new iPhone 8 gold. Looks like it will be a nice match.

    The package says iPhone 8 but in small print it says it'll fit the 7 as well.

    Apple's website states it works with Qi.

    I'm seriously waiting for Best Buy to get this in stock so I can use my gift card. I'm gonna snag that dang ultra violet silicone too!! I love these two colors and I'm usually not a fan!

    You won’t regret it. It looks even better in person! I’m not a fan of the silicone, but that ultra violet is beautiful!!!

    I like both. But my current job makes me way too rough on my silicones. Hoping for a desk job in a few weeks so I can sit there and admire my phone instead of always having it shoved in my pocket

    Back when I had my old Samsung, I was able to charge wirelessly through an Otterbox Symmetry case. This case should pose no problem.

    But I think with the case on the phone will very well heat up, wireless charging always makes yet phones heat up. But I also did read that Apple said if the iPhone heats up the battery will just stop charging

    It shouldn’t. Wireless Charging doesn’t use a lot of voltage as cable charging.

    People that have tried the iPhone 8 on the wireless charger during the demo have said that the phone does heat up while its charging
