MMY32 FV406

Apple announced the all new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus at a special media event today and just like last year, the company has also introduced color-matched Lightning docks for the new iPhones, including Jet Black (glossy) Black (matte) colours. Apple has also announced Smart Battery Cases for the iPhone 7, as well as protective cases in some new colors in both its leather and silicon line-up.



In Canada, the iPhone 7 / 7 Plus Lightning Dock is being sold for $59, while the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus cases will start at $45 and $59 respectively. The iPhone 7 Smart Battery Case will be offered in black and white for $129.

Although all iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models will include EarPods with Lightning Connector and a Lightning to 3.5 mm Headphone Jack Adapter, they will also be sold separately for $35 and $10 respectively.

    the leather case is only $14.. more then silicone.. thats worth it right?

  • Riddlemethis

    Why no case that also protects the camera?

  • Tim

    I’m not sure if I’m upgrading yet, but if I do, I plan to modify my existing leather case to fit the new Plus camera. A good razor blade knife and some clear glue should work quite well… however, even though all the of the body dimensions remain the same, it looks as though the camera protrusion is greater than last year, so maybe this is a no go. Thoughts?

    Good grief that battery case is horrific looking. I still can’t believe that’s an official Apple product.

    The bottom would also be different and that might be a bit harder to cut. First hands-ons mention the volume buttons look a little different but not sure if the placement has changed or if the covers in the case you have would still function with them.

    So yesterday I ordered the Smart Case for the iPhone 7. Order when through fine, but a few hours later I get an email from Apple saying:

    Thank you for your recent order of IPHONE 7 SMART BATTERY CASE. Due to regulations that went into effect on April 1, 2016, governing the shipment of stand-alone lithium-ion batteries, we are unable to ship your order to Canada.

    Thank you for choosing Apple.

    So, if you are living far away from an Apple store, you are having to wait for the idiots at Best Buy and Staples to hopefully carry the item? That’s just stupid.
