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