iPhone 7 cases are here!

Sure, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus don’t ship until September 16, but you can get a protective case for your soon-to-be new phone right now. And you’ll need a new case—the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have the same dimensions as the 6s and 6s Plus, but the new cameras on the iPhone 7 won’t fit the camera opening on most 6s cases. Here’s a first look at what’s already on the market.
