Wallet cases are a great way to streamline your pockets. A wallet case allows you to ditch your old, bulky wallet, and keep all your important items in one place. By attaching a case with a wallet compartment to your phone, all your need to do when you leave the house is grab your phone, grab your keys, and you’re good to go. Wallet cases are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, so you might need some help finding the style that’s just right for your needs.
The most common style of wallet case is the folio style wallet case. This style of case generally wraps around the whole phone. A front flap wraps around to cover the screen, and generally has slots inside the front flap for card storage. There may also be a larger vertical slot, which can be used to hold a small amount of paper money. In some cases, the rear of the case is jointed, making it easy to fold into a kickstand for media viewing. The main issue with this style of iPhone wallet case is that it’s bulky. When full, the front flap may not close perfectly, especially if there is only a light magnetic clasp holding the case closed. Additionally, there may be concern that the cards are rubbing up against the screen of your device.
The other main style of wallet case for the iPhone is a card slot case, where there is no front flap that wraps around the device. This style of case looks more like a “normal” iPhone case, but conceals a small compartment or slide on the rear of the case for card storage. The downside of this style of wallet case is two-fold. First, there’s no front flap, so you’ll have to purchase a screen protector. Secondly, these types of wallet cases tend to hold fewer cards than a folio style case.
Additionally, there are some other variations on the wallet case. We’ve seen pouch-style wallet cases, where the phone fits into a large wallet or purse, but can be removed quickly from inside the storage area. In this type of case, the phone moves freely within the pouch, and isn’t attached to a solid frame. We’ve also seen stick-on accessories that turn your phone into a mobile wallet. However, this type of case isn’t really a “case,” since it provides little protection for your naked device.
Overwhelmed by all the options? Ready to see some pictures of recommended cases? We’ve rounded up ten of the most unique, useful, and interesting wallet cases currently on sale for the iPhone 7. We’ve made a special effort to find some interesting wallet cases that don’t look like all the other wallet cases on the market. You’re unique, and your phone should reflect that. Read on to see our top picks for the best iPhone 7 wallet cases currently on sale, and make sure to check back to see new recommendations as we add them to our comprehensive list.
1. Spigen Wallet S Stand Feature iPhone 7 Wallet Case
Looking for a basic wallet case? If this is your first foray into this style of case, this model from Spigen is a great place to start. It’s a simple style that manages to be a bit slimmer than other iPhone wallet cases we’ve seen, at least in terms of folio cases. There’s a stand feature, along with space for some bills and up to three cards/IDs. A hard inner frame adds stability and structure to the case, along with added impact protection in the event of a drop.
This case doesn’t come with a screen protector, though you could buy one here that should be thin enough to work with this case. A screen protector can give you extra piece of mind, particularly if you are concerned about the cards rubbing against the screen of your device when the wallet is closed.
2. Moonmini Card Slot Holder Case With Kickstand for iPhone 7
Like your wallet cases slim? This slender model from Moonmini has a sleek look, and a design that stands out from the crowd. The rear of the case features a thin kickstand. The piece that folds out acts as a kickstand, and also acts as the “lid” to the card compartment. The design of this case is cool, because you might not even realize this was a card case at first. One main drawback is the size of the card compartment. It really only fits one card comfortably, so if you need to carry multiple business cards, or keep your ID and your debit card in the same place, this may not be the perfect case for you. That being said, if you only take one card on the go, and you really prize slim cases, this incognito wallet case is a winner.
A small touch that sets this wallet case apart is the expandable bill pocket. There’s a little give to this section of the case, which is nice when you compare this style to more typical folio cases that have a single, non-expandable slot for bills. This pocket is great for extra cash, coins, metro cards, or receipts.
Another interesting feature is the camera slide feature, which allows the phone to slide out of the case for taking quick pictures. This can be a nice feature for those who feel like a cumbersome wallet case gets in the way of taking great shots. This wallet has room for at least four cards, and you could probably squeeze in up to six if you were so inclined.
iPhones are designed to be beautiful, so some people are often sad they need to cover up their device in the name of function. If you prefer the “naked look” for your phone, but still need the convenience of a wallet case, consider a stick-on accessory that attaches a wallet to the back of your device. Simply apply the self-adhesive wallet to the back of your phone (or an iPhone 7 case like this one), and you’re good to go.
This is a simple, affordable way to bring wallet functionality to your smartphone. That being said, despite the fact that this wallet is designed to be removed cleanly, you may want to go with a more traditional wraparound wallet case if you are getting the Jet Black iPhone 7. Apple has warned consumers that the darkest iPhone 7 color is prone to visible scratches.
If you’re looking for a cheap wallet case that adds very little bulk to your device, this is a great option. It’s also a nice choice if you’re looking to hold up to eight cards, plus cash.
5. VRS Design Native Diary Leather iPhone 7 Wallet Case
This wallet case holds three cards, plus some bills in the money sleeve. The use of real leather makes this case stand out from the competition, since the majority of “leather” cases we’ve seen for the iPhone 7 are made from 100 percent polyurethane or other faux leather materials. The magnetic snap closure provides two methods to keep the wallet securely closed. This is a simple case, but one that has a sort of professional elegance to it. If you use your phone for business, this case will make you look polished and put together.
I know, I know, this is the second case on this list from the same manufacturer. But we just couldn’t resist this cute, unusual take on a traditional iPhone wallet case. The rear compartment is made from a flexible flap of material. This folds back to house two credit cards (though just one may fit more securely), or it can fold into place and act as a kickstand. Not sold on the color? It’s also available in jet black, as well two stunning metallics: champagne gold and icy silver.
Looking for a distinguished iPhone case? We can see this looking at home in the hands of a high-powered businessman. The phone slides out of the case with ease, and can be replaced and secured with a small strap. The exterior of the case has two slots for cards. This is a great card case for those who want to keep their ID, credit card, or business cards close at hand. We also like the look, smell, and texture of real leather, all of which combine to make this case feel truly luxurious. As of this writing, you can get 15 percent off the price of this case by entering the promo code “MK9R4PW5” at checkout.
8. IZENGATE Classic Series Wallet Cover for iPhone 7
Bored with basic black cases? This fun wallet case comes in bold colors like mint, deep blue, and turquoise. We also like the wrist strap. Since this case is a little bulky, it’s hard to store comfortably in a pocket. The wrist strap lets you keep tabs on your phone, while also leaving both hands free while walking, shopping, or doing other important tasks. This case features three card slot pockets, plus a special ID card slot. There’s also room for a little cash.
9. Kaseberry Proleatherion Kickstand iPhone 7 Case
Want a colorful, eye-catching case? This wallet case is perfect for those who love to use their accessories to make a splash. The design is the big selling point here, with the case itself only offering a couple of card slots and a single place for bills. Still, if you’re all about style, this is a great wallet case to use with your new iPhone 7.
If leather is your thing, this simple folding wallet case may be of interest. It is made from genuine cow leather, and closes with a magnetic closure. This is a universal case, designed to fit a variety of smartphones. As such, it may not provide the most snug fit for your device. That being said, there is ample card and cash storage, and four color options to choose from: purple, orange, and black.
