Our picks of the best iPhone 7 cases can keep your phone protecting against everything life has to throw at it. We've picked out discrete clear covers, rugged armored beats, card-storage cases, and even given props to a few with kickstands.  

The iPhone 7 is undoubtedly a great piece of tech. But it's an older phone now, so you need a great case to keep it protected, scratch-free, and stylish! While there are thousands of different cases available, some are better than others. If you're looking for the best cases for the iPhone 7 Plus, we've got you covered there too. Note that the iPhone 7, iPhone 8, and the modern iPhone SE models are all the same size, so the cases are interchangeable should you upgrade.

The best iPhone 7 cases for you

There are no shortages of great cases for your iPhone 7, especially since you can use cases made for the iPhone 8 and 2020 iPhone SE as well. A great case is not only going to protect your phone but also suit your lifestyle and provide you with the functionality as you want.

I'm a huge fan of the Spigen Tough Armor because it offers great protection, and it's a little thinner than most heavy-duty cases. My pocket doesn't feel like it's going to rip off my pants when I'm carrying it around.

Heavy-duty cases aren't for everyone, which is why a slim and affordable option like the TORRAS Slim Fit exists. It's super thin, so your pocket, bag, or purse won't feel like you're carrying around a brick. Plus, it still protects the back of your iPhone 7 and the camera from getting scuffed or scratched.

Whether you like clear cases, minimalist cases, heavy-duty cases, or anything else, grabbing a great case from this list above will ensure your iPhone 7 stays in good working order!
