Unlock the full potential of your iPhone 7 camera with new accessories from Moment

Moment: Make Your iPhone 7/7+ A Better Camera
Moment needs your help again.

The company, known best for its iPhone camera-supplementing accessories, has returned to where it all began to raise funds for its latest products. Now on Kickstarter, Moment is debuting a new battery photo case, a photo case (really just like the battery case but without the battery), and a cinema wide lens for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

“We believe that the future of photography is in your pocket,” the Moment team notes in its latest campaign. “The best camera is the one you have with you, and that camera is your phone. At Moment, we want to make your phone work more like a camera.”

With the battery power case, Moment is offering a new kind of protection that promises to bring power and photography together. The iPhone 7 Plus Case comes complete with a 3,500mAh battery, while the iPhone 7 case carries a 2,500mAh battery. Because these are each larger than your iPhone’s own batteries, you’ll get a more than 100 percent recharge on your phone, so feel free to shoot all day. Moreover, you can control whether or not your case is charging your phone using the Moment app.

The app also allows you to shoot with your phone more as you would with a real camera. Just half-press the shutter button to lock the subject, then press down fully in order to shoot either photo or video. If you hold down for a longer period of time, you’ll find yourself in burst mode. Shooting with a button can be faster than tapping the screen, especially if your subject is moving. And when you’re shooting with one hand, it’s always awkward trying to hold onto the phone and touch the screen at once.

Using the Moment App, you can half-press the shutter button to lock the subject and full press to shoot (photo or video). In the Apple camera app you can full press to shoot. And in both apps, pressing and holding unlocks burst mode. Promising a shutter button 75 percent faster than the one included in the previous case, this new product claims to be a huge upgrade over even your last Moment case.

Then, there’s the new and improved Moments lens, which is said to be stronger and more reliable than before. “Slightly larger, we now have enough room to make an interface that clicks into place,” the Moment team noted. “Not only is it easier to mount a Moment lens, but for the first time you can put our glass over the wide or tele lens on the iPhone 7 Plus.”

At this point, you can get the Photo Case, the thin, lens mountable case for photo enthusiasts for just $20, while $69 will get you the Battery Photo Case. You can get these accessories with the Moment Lens starting at $99.

The back of the iPhone 14 Plus and Pixel 7.

The Pixel 7 has a fantastic camera, and it’s one of the top reasons to pick the latest Google phone over any other, but what about Apple’s latest phones?

Google Pixel 7 and iPhone 14 Plus camera specs
For this test, we are using the Apple iPhone 14 Plus, which has exactly the same camera system as the smaller iPhone 14. No matter which one you’re interested in, the results below are representative of both. For clarification, we’re using the Google Pixel 7 and not the Google Pixel 7 Pro.

Starting with the iPhone 14 Plus, you get a 12-megapixel main camera with an f/1.5 aperture and optical image stabilization, joined by a second 12MP camera for wide-angle photos and an f/2.4 aperture. Apple’s Photonic Engine, Deep Fusion, and Smart HDR 4 technology are all part of the software package working behind the scenes. This same specification is shared by the iPhone 14.

Will your iPhone 13 case fit the iPhone 14?
The Kate Spade case, showing the back and the design.

If you've decided to buy the iPhone 14, it's likely you will also need a solid case to keep your new device safe. Even though all of the iPhone 14 models feature a durable Ceramic Shield front cover to keep your device safe, it may not be enough to protect your phone from heavy impacts, long drops, and constant scratches.
We've already done the hard work and rounded up the best iPhone 14 cases available in the market right now, and we've also given you a guide to the best iPhone 14 screen protectors for extra security, as well as guides for each of the other new iPhones as well. But maybe you're wondering, "Do I really have to spend money on a new case after buying an $800 iPhone?" or "Can’t I just use my iPhone 13 case?" 
We feel you. But the short answer is: for some models. Here's the longer answer. 
Will the iPhone 13 case fit the iPhone 14 device?

The iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 look quite similar, and the specs are pretty close in terms of size and dimensions, so it's possible the two devices can share a case. The iPhone 14 is slightly thicker than its predecessor, but the overall differences are minor enough that the iPhone 13 case is likely to be functional enough for your new iPhone 14 model. Some manufacturers are already selling a common case for iPhone 13 and iPhone 14, so if you're migrating from iPhone 13 to iPhone 14, you can keep the old case. Of course, if you feel the fit isn't good enough, you can always invest in a new case.
