As detailed in our comprehensive iPhone 7 review, Apple’s 2016 handset is a sleek smartphone with an elegant design, one that needs to be protected.

That’s why you need to invest in one of the best iPhone 7 cases. Check out a few of our current favorites below.

Grovemade Maple iPhone Case ($100)

Best iPhone 7 cases - Grovemade Maple iPhone Case

Grovemade

It’s expensive, but who can resist the natural wood charms of Grovemade’s wares? A beautiful, solid maple bumper combines with a backplate that adheres directly to your iPhone 7. You’ll find tactile wooden button covers for the power and volume, and accurate openings for the switch, camera, and ports. While the case should protect your iPhone if you drop it, the wood will chip and crack fairly easily, so this is definitely more about style than protection. The Grovemade warranty offers 50 percent off if you break the case and want to repurchase the same one.

Killspencer Snap Case ($48)

Killspencer Snap Case

For a snap-on case with a stylish, durable, leather finish and plenty of character, look no further than Killspencer’s Snap Case. The case is made of a basic, slim shell with generous cut-outs for your phone’s camera, ports, and side switch. There’s also well-defined button covers and an optional strap for added security, which is good because this case is more about style than protection. It currently only comes in black, but you can add a two-character monogram if you want. The latter will cost you an extra $30.

Griffin Survivor Clear Case ($20)

Griffin Survivor Clear Case

This protective offering showcases Apple’s minimalist design, allowing you to maintain the look and feel of your smartphone. This is one of Griffin’s slimmest cases for the iPhone 7, but it still offers drop protection from up to four feet. It’s made of tough polycarbonate and features a flexible TPU frame. The back is scratch-resistant and is available in either a translucent design or one with a subtle tinge of color. The button covers are responsive and there are accurate openings for your phone’s ports, as well as generous cut-outs on the back that ensure you’ll be able to use your phone’s camera and flash without interference.

Noreve Tradition Leather Case ($71)

Noreve Tradition Leather Case

This classy cover for the iPhone 7 is made of high-quality leather. A thin, plastic shell holds your iPhone in place and it’s wrapped in a padded-leather exterior that completely envelopes your phone, protecting it from all angles. The front cover has a magnetic closure, which opens to reveal a couple of handy slots for stowing credit cards. There are also cut-outs for your phone’s speaker, camera, buttons, and ports. The case is currently available in a variety of different finishes and colors.

CM4 Q Card Case ($25)

CM4 Q Card Case

Leave your wallet or purse at home with the Q Card Case from CM4. This case combines a number of clever features. The durable, plastic shell will fit your iPhone perfectly. You’ll also find tactile button covers, accurate cut-outs, and textured strips on the sides for enhanced grip. The back sports a leather-style pocket that can hold a couple of credit cards and some cash. There’s also a smart slot that you can slide a card into, allowing you to prop up your phone in landscape view. It comes in black, gray, gold, or pink.

Apple iPhone 7 Silicon and Leather cases ($35+)

Apple’s case lineup keeps getting bigger and bigger. In March, the Cupertino-based company added seven new colors to its case collection, including sapphire, pebble, and tan. Apple’s soft-touch, silicon bands are lightweight and sport a microfiber lining that helps protect your iPhone from bumps and scratches. Its leather cases are made from a specially-tanned and finished European leather that’s soft to the touch and compliments the iPhone’s finish perfectly.

Utomic Edge Corner Protectors ($35)

Utomic Edge Corner Protectors

The most annoying thing about most iPhone 7 cases is that they cover up Apple’s gorgeous design. Thankfully, Utomic has a minimalist alternative that still provides some protection in the form of corner protectors. These are small, flexible bumpers with an adhesive that takes 24 hours to properly set. They stick to each corner of your iPhone and extend from front to back to prevent your phone from touching down on flat surfaces. You also get wipes and an installation sleeve, allowing for the perfect fit. They come in an array of colors, too, and provide decent protection against falls of up to four feet, provided your phone doesn’t land on an uneven surface.

Utomic

Snakehive Vintage Leather Wallet ($30)

Snakehive’s leather folio cases are an absolute steal. The leather has a fine grain on the outside, which is pleasant to the touch, and a traditional leather finish on the inside for protection and longevity. We love the black and navy color scheme here, but it’s available in other colors too. Your phone fits perfectly inside, and there’s a very handy magnetic clasp to keep the cover closed. It doubles as a stand for your phone as well.

Mous iPhone 7 Case ($40)

A super-successful Indiegogo campaign launched these slick cases, available in wood, marble, bamboo, leather, or Kevlar finishes. Prices vary, and pre-orders for some styles are sold out, but keep an eye on the site for when orders open up again in the future. The cases look great, with the protective Airo-Shock interior keeping the phone safe even when dropped from a great height. Yet the cases have style and class, rather than the rugged toughness usually associated with such protection.

Mous

Vesel Wood Series Case ($130+)

Vesel Wood Series Case

There’s no denying that these bumper-style cases from Vesel are very expensive, but they’re also beautifully crafted. The combination of aluminum and wood is seriously stylish. You can mix and match gold, rose, black, or silver aluminum with oak, walnut, maple, or pear wood to get the exact look you want. The premium packaging also includes a wee screwdriver, so you can fit the bumper securely around your phone. The button covers work well and there’s a generous opening for your phone’s Lightning port. The case extends from the front to the back to safeguard your iPhone 7, though you may want to pair it with a screen protector for some additional peace of mind.
