Question: Will iPhone 7 cases fit the iPhone 6?

 

Quick Answer: The quick answer is no.

 

The iPhone 6 specifications are quite different to those of the iPhone 7. You’ll see why below.

 

Answer: One of the fundamental changes between the iPhone 6 and iPhone 7 is the removal of the 3.5mm audio jack. On the iPhone 7, this has been removed and instead EarPods with the lightning connector have been provided. With this in mind, the iPhone 7 cases will no longer have a cut-out for the audio jack that is present on the iPhone 6.

 

What about the camera positioning I hear you ask? The camera on the back of the iPhone 7 is larger and sits slightly lower than that on the iPhone 6, so any cases for the iPhone 7 will not fit the iPhone 6 because the cut-out for the camera will not be in the same place.

 

Whilst the audio jack and camera are different on the iPhone 7, there are some parts which have remained the same as the iPhone 6. The actual size of both models is the same and the positioning of the sound and on/off button is in the equivalent place.

 

So, will iPhone 7 cases fit the iPhone 6? I think it is clear to see that the models differ too much. Whilst an iPhone 7 Case will fit on an iPhone 6 and offer some protection, it can hinder the use of the functional buttons and camera. With this in mind, iPhone 7 cases will not correctly fit the iPhone 6.
