If you have an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus and you're considering buying the new iPhone 8 or 8 Plus, you may be wondering whether your old phone case will fit the new phones. It probably will...

The new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus comes slightly taller, wider and thicker (0.1mm to 0.2mm) than the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus. 

Will iPhone 7 and 7 Plus case still fit iPhone 8 and 8 Plus? 

The specs aren't identical, but the differences are only a few millimeters and the camera size and position are the same. So your old case will probably still fit the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

At least according to Apple's official accessory page:  iPhone 8 / 7 Silicone Case - Rose Red | ApplePhotos Source: Apple

Not only Apple's but also many other third-party phone case brands such as Spigen, Otterbox, and others are also listed both phone cases as compatible. We are also proud to announce that all TheImprint iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus Cases are compatible with the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus respectively.

However, not all phone cases might fit...

Nevertheless, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are marginally thicker - 0.2 mm - than their predecessors. So some very tight cases, especially the hard plastic case, might not fit. 

How about iPhone X?

The iPhone X is a different story, it has a completely different size and specifications. iPhone X preorder will only begin on 27th October 2017 and shipping plans to begin on 3rd November 2017. Some iPhone X phone cases are already available for major brands, such as Spigen and Otterbox. TheImprint iPhone X cases will be available soon.
