In our article detailing the differences in iPhones 6s / 6s Plus To the iPhones 7/7 Plus, we said that the dimensions of the devices remained exactly the same. With that, one can quickly think that the cases old devices would remain compatible with the new devices.
But unfortunately not. What "catches" not even the bottom part, because the old opening for the 3.5mm door would probably serve to allow the sound to reach the microphone there now, but on the back of the device.
We prepared a GIF that makes this very clear:
On the iPhone 7, the lens got a little bigger and changed its position. On the iPhone 7 Plus, then, we don't even talk about it: with the dual camera, the rear cutout on the case must be much larger.
Apple, of course, has already launched a number of its own cases adapted for the new iPhones and other manufacturers should follow it quickly, as the design of the devices had long since been leaked in rumors.
The only possible exception to all this, as pointed out by Macworld, it would be in the case of bumpers. As these covers only cover the “surroundings” of the iPhone, it may be that many can still be used in good condition with the latest generation devices. To see.
