Will My iPhone 6/6s Wallet Case Fit iPhone 7?
There is good news and bad news. The dimensions of the iPhone 7/7 Plus and iPhone 6/6S are the same. So your old case may fit, although not perfectly. The three design/dimension differences are outlined here, to give you all the information you need to get ready for the for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
Speaker Placement: The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have stereo speakers, one on the top and one on the bottom of the phone. If you iPhone 6/6S case is open at the top, you may be OK here, but if not, the sound will likely be muffled.
Size of Camera Opening: The camera and flash combos on the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are larger than on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus phones. So, the size of the camera opening may be a problem. This is particularly true of the iPhone 7 Plus, which has a much larger dual camera system as compared to the iPhone 6/6S Plus.
Headphone Jack and Bottom Openings: The big news for about a year has been that Apple is eliminating the headphone jack on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The jack is gone, for cases that are not totally open on the bottom, things will not align correctly. Where the headphone jack on the iPhone 6/Plus was, there is now a microphone. The shape is different. The mic may work, but it will not line up nicely with the old jack opening. If your case is totally open at the bottom, this shouldn't be a problem.
Our conclusion. Except for the size of the camera & flash combo opening, you will likely be able to get by with your iPhone 6/6S 6/6S Plus case...temporarily. But there will likely be a number of problems that will degrade your enjoyment of your new iPhone 7/7 Plus case, that will lead to a new purchase.
At jimmyCASE, we are adapting our design for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus phones and will be shipping in early October. We are planning on October 7 and are waiting our first run of iPhone 7 / 7 Plus cases.
Our Summer Predictions, if you are interested.
We are all excited about the iPhone 7 coming out sometime this fall. The rumor blogs are already going crazy. No headphone jack, only Bluetooth. Super AMOLED screens. Waterproof chassis. Ceramic materials. Better performance with new processor. The iPhone 7 will obviously be super cool and worth the upgrade.
But..it won’t likely work perfectly with your jimmyCASE iPhone 6/6s case wallet. Every two years when Apple does a major iPhone release, the form factor changes significantly. Buttons move, dimensions and shape change.
When you get a slick new phone, you’ll most likely need a slick new case. But, not to worry. jimmyCASE has been able to adapt to the new phone models within a few days of new iPhone release. Our bumper team renders fast and gets the new bumpers ready, almost by the time the new phones are shipping.
Our bet is the new case will be slimmer and a little bit larger (to hold more cards). With every new model the iPhone gets slicker and we try to keep up.
And don’t worry. We’ll have a Plus model too. Just like the iPhone 6/6s Plus wallet case.
So, enjoy your iPhone 6 jimmyCASE now. Carry your most important cards wherever you go, knowing jimmyCASE is there always.
Any then when the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus come out, you can get a new jimmyCASE with a new color, fresh, clean and ready for years of efficiency and enjoyment.
The mahogany wood will be there, looking pretty.
So..do get excited about the new iPhones, read the rumors and when the new iPhone comes out, buy it right away and we promise an awesome new jimmyCASE will be ready for you and your new phone. We’ll probably have a discount code floating around to make it a great deal.
