New cases of the week
This week’s roundup of new iPhone and iPad cases features DODOcase’s classic Bookcase, now available for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Plus, a variety of other case types for Apple’s latest mobile lineup. Read on!
The case’s cover can be fully folded back for one-handed use, and also doubles as a stand for extra convenience. The ToughShell Elite comes with a lanyard eyelet and a magnetic closure to safe transportation, and it’s available in gray, brown, or black.
Certified to withstand drops from up to six feet off the ground, the Jewel Ice (iPhone 7; $30 MSRP, $13 on Amazon) offers a precise fit for your iPhone, and keeps a slim profile. This see-through case has press-through button overlays, a raised bezel to keep your screen elevated when placed face-down on flat surfaces, and features a special coating that prevents yellowing over time.
The UrbanShield (iPhone 7; $30 MSRP) is a protective frame with a smooth, metallic finish. The case keeps your iPhone safe from falls and drops, sports wide cut-outs for your buttons, Lightning port, and camera, and comes in three different combinations of colors and materials—rose gold, aluminum, or carbon fiber—to match Apple’s own finishes.
The handcrafted Bookcase (iPhone 7 and 7 Plus; $44.95 to $54.95 MSRP) features a book-like design, with front and back cloth panels and a flexible leather spine for easy folding.
The folio case sports a polymer tray to secure your iPhone, a camera cut-out for all your picture-taking needs, and an elastic closure for its front cover. The Bookcase is easy to clean, and comes in copper, pewter, or graphite satin. (Plus, look how cute it is!)
The Trafalgar (iPhone 7 and 7 Plus; £30 MSRP/about $37) features a flexible outer shell that includes a TPU layer for advanced impact protection.
Available in gold, rose gold, or silver, the case grants unobstructed access to all your ports and buttons, keeps a slim profile for easy storage, and sports a scratch-resistant finish.
The Walnut Bumper (iPhone 7, 7 Plus, and SE; $49 to $69 MSRP) is an elegant wooden bumper that surrounds your iPhone’s sides and corners. This hand-crafted case features an oil-based polish for a shiny look, and sports matching press-through button overlays.
Stylish and slim, the case meets military drop-test standards, protects your screen when placed face-down on flat surfaces, and has press-through button overlays paired with cut-outs for the iPhone’s ports.
Slim and sleek, the case includes a microfiber lining for extra cushioning, and a scratch-proof shield for your screen. It comes in black onyx, champagne gold, or rose gold.
Urban Armor Gear
Handcrafted with leather and an alloy metal, the case features a drop-resistant shock-absorbent core, and sports sizeable press-through button covers. Available in graphite or platinum, the Monarch also comes with a protruding rim to help protect your screen.
Now, for the iPad stuff! The colorful Skin (9.7-inch iPad Pro; $20 MSRP) is a thin decal, available in a variety of motifs, patterns, and landscape backgrounds.
This adhesive decal offers a bubble-free installation for easy set up, can be removed without leaving any residue, and comes in a matte/satin finish or high gloss/finish.
The Joy Factory
This slim case includes openings for your camera, ports, and buttons, can be used with Apple’s Smart Keyboard and Smart Cover, and keeps your iPad’s back in pristine conditions by preventing scratches and dents.
The Prime sports a water-resistant coating, features numerous interior compartments for your iPad, MacBook, and accessories, and has stretchy pockets on each side for quick access to important items you want to keep on hand. The backpack is available in black, frost grey, moroccan blue, or steel.
Made of synthetic leather, the folio case is compatible with the iPad Pro’s magnetic sleep/wake function, supports both landscape and portrait orientations when used as a stand, and includes two card slots inside its cover.
