Grovemade Maple iPhone Case ($100)

Best iPhone 7 cases - Grovemade Maple iPhone Case
Grovemade
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.

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.

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.

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.

Snakehive Vintage Leather Wallet ($27)

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.

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.
