Your iPhone 7/Plus case will fit the new iPhone 8/Plus

Apple lists all of its new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus cases as compatible with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus

Apple lists all of its new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus cases as compatible with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus


The new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus come slightly taller, wider and thicker than their iPhone 7 and 7 Plus predecessors. The differences, however, are a fraction of an inch, so if you have been wondering whether your old case will fit the new phones, it probably will, at least according to Apple's official accessory page. We just took a peak, and there the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus cases are listed as compatible with the 7 and 7 Plus. Oh, the joy. 

Not only Apple's, but also all third-party wrappers from Otterbox and others are also listed as compatible with both phone generations, so if you have been thinking of keeping your favorite case you now have on your iPhone 7, and upgrading to the iPhone 8, for example, you will probably be able to fit the new phone in the old case without the help of a heat gun.

And ripping them off by increasing the price by $50 in the USA. And more in other parts of the world. For a smaller battery.

Forget that Apple will do something incredible to help people save their money.

Only apple can be so retarded and forgiven for same design for almost half a decade.

If you don't know, a car has a much larger product life cycle compared to smartphones.

What are you talking about? 911 is the same since 1963 and there were 9 different main models, plus 5 variations.

I dig what you say, just, we, consumers, tend to get new phones more often than a cars.

Well, the principle is the same.
I buy bread more often than phones but I still don't want a different shape of bread every day... :)

The problem is people want the iOS part of the iPhone.
If it ran Android or some other OS then Apple's smartphone division would have been dead after the 6S.

Then, it's a good thing that iPhone is running a potent OS like iOS.

Not really the same because bread has barely any fashion statement , design value so to say . I've been buying same loaf of square bread for years. Have no issue with that :)

But the bread - just like every other food - should be looking good so that I can eat it with pleasure.
The same with the phone or the car (just change "eat" with "use" :)).

I agree bread should look not or be damaged in any way.

Smartphone consumerism is driven by evolving fashion but the bread :) Bread design is pretty much the same since the dawn of humanity but the phone.

Why are you guys discussing bread on a tech forum?

Maybe it's time for bakeries to sandwich the bread between two pieces of glass and sell it to you....

Wow dude, you got me good!

However, that question I asked in comment no.18 wasn't sarcastic; it was a serious question. So I would like you to answer that.

And secondly, my comment no.19 was meant to be a joke. But you took it seriously.
