Apple geeks don't have long to wait now until their favourite time of year – the release of the new iPhone. That’s right, this Friday the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will finally be arriving in the UK.

If you've ever bought a handset from Apple before then you’ll know that they don’t exactly come cheap, so it stands to reason that you’ll want to be keeping yours protected fresh out of the box. In which case you’re going to need a... well, case. And what good is a new phone, in a new case without a plethora of new accessories?

Here we run down a few of our favourites.

daptr Phone Case

Weeping over the loss of your ability to charge your phone while listening to music? The daptr provides a neat fix; a case that supplies you with two Lightning ports and a 3.5mm headphone jack, in addition to protecting your precious new handset from any hazardous falls. Sure, it extends the length of your case by 20mm - but you'd stretched out those jeans pockets by now, right?

£38 (coming December)

Official Apple iPhone 7 charger case

The first iPhone 7 battery case to hit the market, this little beauty clips neatly onto your handset and promises to extend your phone's talktime up to around 26 hours. Not bad.

£99

 

Official Apple AirPods

While the iPhone 7 & 7 Plus do both come with a set of lightning adapter ‘EarPods’, in order to make full use of wireless playback you’re going to need some wireless headphones. The ‘AirPods’ are Apple’s attempt at cracking the market.

£159 (available in October)

Griffin Survivor Summit case

This popular case will be adapted for the iPhone 7 & 7 Plus, keeping them protected from falls of up to 10 feet, dirt, scratches, water and more.

£47

Mujjo leather wallet case

Wallets are dead. Or rather, with Apple Pay and contactless cards making cold hard currency all but useless, why get yourself a new leather pocket when you can stick your necessary cards in this? Mujjo's leather case can fit three cards and is available in black or brown finishes.

£33.12

iTrip AUX with AutoPilot

This handy little gadget allows you to connect your new iPhone to your car’s AUX-in port and even features playback controls so you can change tracks on the go without having to touch your phone.

£34.99

Beats by Dre Powerbeats3 wireless earphones

Prone to dropping your phone on nights out? We feel you, but it can be a thing of the past with this great shatter-proof screen guard from Otterbox.

We’ve all been there: You’re out in town, maybe you need to meet friends, you check your phone and it shows 1 per cent battery but you don’t have a cable. This inconspicuous little leather key fob puts that scenario to bed once and for all.

£39.99

VRS Design leather diary case

If you’re dressed up to the nines then why should your phone be any different? The answer is it shouldn’t. Keep your new toy protected in style.
