Our favorite iPhone 7 Plus cases

The wide industry of iPhone cases is hard to nail down on any given day. There are so many shapes, sizes, colors, durabilities, features — it’s impossible to flat out state which is the best iPhone case. After 10 years of iPhones, and more years of smartphones, most people will know how harsh they are on their devices. In all likelihood, most people buy the same updated case each time they buy an updated iPhone. If you’re one of those people, it’s likely you’ve already made up your mind.

If you’re looking to jump categories, the Apple Leather Case, Spigen Thin Fit, and Otterbox Defender are our favorite iPhone 7 Plus cases so far.

The downside is there is no way to download your existing library to your device. But, thanks to some playlist trickery, you can download your entire library with ease.

The Focus Course: Need More Time in the Day? »

Over on our sister site, The Focus Course, we just peeled back the curtain to finally announce something we’ve been working on for months:

The Creative Focus Online Summit.

It’s an online event that starts this coming Monday, December 5th. And, to be candid, this is one of the biggest things we’ve ever done. We think you’re going to love it.
