Can Leather Cases for iPhone 7 Plus fit iPhone 8 Plus?

A lot of people who are upgrading from iPhone 7 Plus to iPhone 8 Plus are asking if their old iPhone 7 Plus case could fit the new iPhone 8 Plus. So let us answer this question for you.

You can see the dimensions of both phones listed below and iPhone 8 Plus is actually a bigger and thicker phone than iPhone 7 Plus, but only by a very very small margin (0.2mm in H, W and D). 

Height 
iPhone 8 Plus: 158.4 mm (6.24 inches) 
iPhone 7 Plus: 158.2 mm (6.23 inches) 

Width 
iPhone 8 Plus: 78.1 mm (3.07 inches) 
iPhone 7 Plus: 77.9 mm (3.07 inches) 

Depth 
iPhone 8 Plus: 7.5 mm (0.30 inches) 
iPhone 7 Plus: 7.3 mm (0.29 inches)

The iPhone 8 plus' slightly bigger dimensions could present a challenge to reuse the old iPhone 7 plus case if it's a "rigid case" (e.g. metal or rugged cases). But given leather's malleability, leather cases for iPhone 7 Plus will fit iPhone 8 Plus. And that is also why Apple is selling the same iPhone 7 Plus leather cases for iPhone 8 Plus on Apple's website  as well.
