How to turn off (or turn on) landscape mode on the iPhone 6/6s Plus and iPhone 7 Plus home screen

With the iPhone 6 Plus, 6s Plus, and 7s Plus, you have the ability to use the home screen in landscape mode (with the iPhone held horizontally) or in portrait mode (the iPhone held vertically).

Given the preponderance of vertically-shot videos, you may not want the home screen to switch when your iPhone is in a horizontal position. Sure, it’ll move to a vertical position when you move your phone, but maybe you have your reasons for wanting the home screen to not switch at all. (Because annoying).

Or maybe you’re like me and you want the home screen to switch between landscape and portrait, but it seems stuck on portrait. It won’t switch anymore.

Best iPhone 7 Plus cases

What are the best iPhone 7 Plus cases? Here are our favorites!

Updated May 28, 2017: We've kept the list the same, as these are still the best options you can buy for the iPhone 7 Plus right now!

The iPhone 7 Plus deserves an ultra cool case to keep it safe. Whether you are looking for a very protective one, or just something to prevent scratches, there are a number of options available to you.

Apple makes its own line of cases for the iPhone 7 Plus and tons of third-party accessory makers do as well. Hunting down the perfect case can take some time, so here are some of the best options available!

Apple Leather case

Apple has been making its own leather cases for a few years now, and they are some of the best cases that you can add to your iPhone 7 Plus. The cases fit snugly on your phone, provide a great layer of protection, and look great.

Being real leather, they all wear differently, so your case ends up becoming even more unique over time. They are available in a variety of colors to match your preference, from blue to grey to red.

While being a bit more expensive than other options, Apple's leather case is worth the money if you want a case that will look great and hold up for a long time.

MoKo Clear TPU

If you want to pick up one of Apple's new black colors, you are not going to want to hide it. Unfortunately, the Jet Black is going to be a fingerprint magnet, and it is likely to attract and show hairline scratches quickly. A clear case is a great compromise in this situation so that you can still show off your color choice while keeping it protected.

The case is made from a scratch-resistant material, so it will stay looking great for the long term. It has precision cutouts for the ports, and the TPU material makes it easy to put on or take off and comfortable in the hand.

For under $10, it's a no-brainer to put one of these on your brand new iPhone 7 Plus.

Spigen Thin Fit

If clear cases aren't your thing but you still want a thin layer of protection on your iPhone 7 Plus, Spigen's Thin Fit cases are the way to go.

Available in black, satin silver, gold, and rose gold, you can find one that matches your phone and doesn't add any bulk to it. The case clips over the phone and provides protection from scratches and dings to the back and four sides of the phone.

You'll have access to the buttons directly, as the case has cutouts for them instead of requiring you to press through the case to use them. For around $10 at Amazon, this is a great option for those who don't need a super protective case but still want to keep their phone safe.

Super Thin iPhone 7 Plus Case

If you're looking for a super thin iPhone case that'll have little to no bulk at all, then take a peek at the Super Thin iPhone 7 Plus Case from Peel!

Designed without any crazy designs or visible logos, and measuring around 0.35mm thin with a subtle lip to protect your camera lens, the Peel's Super Thin iPhone 7 Plus Case is perfect for people who really don't like having a case on their iPhone 7 Plus.

I have been through a bunch of cases and Peel has by far been the best. I have dropped my phone a ton and no shattered or scratched screen. (Marc HemeonOakley, YouTube, Google, & HODINKEE designer)

You can pick up your Peel Super Thin iPhone 7 Plus case in black, jet black, black, silver, gold, or rose gold, AKA the perfect color match for your iPhone 7 Plus!

i-Blason Transformer

If protection is your main concern, i-Blason's Transformer case may be a great addition to your collection.

Made of two layers, the case has an impact-resistant exterior and a shock-absorbing inner sleeve to ensure that your phone stays safe inside of it. In addition, the Transformer case has a built-in kickstand, so you can keep the phone propped up when you're not holding it. The hard case clips into a belt holster so that you don't have to worry about it fitting in your pocket while transporting it.

You can pick up the two-piece case and holster combo for around $15 at Amazon.

Otterbox Symmetry Series

If you're in need of a more protective case but don't want something that looks bulky and ugly, Otterbox's Symmetry series is worth checking out.

The cases come in a variety of different colors and prints, and there's even a clear version. If you want to show off your phone while keeping it well protected, the clear version is probably the best choice.

If you'd rather add some flair of your own to your iPhone 7 Plus, you can do that as well with one of the other color choices. The Symmetry series offers a great amount of protection without a ton of bulk.

As many of you will by now be aware, the yalu+mach_portal tool for iOS 10.1(.1) is no more.

Smartphone camera shootout: iPhone 7 Plus vs. Samsung Galaxy S8

Apple proudly says that the the iPhone is the most popular camera in the world. But is it the best? We put the iPhone 7 Plus to the test against the newest flagship from Samsung, the Galaxy S8. Watch the video above to see the photos side-by-side and to find out how each smartphone did in delivering the best color, clarity, and range.

We tested the cameras on the iPhone 7 Plus and the Galaxy S8 in the way most people use them: in auto mode. That means straight out of the pocket, using the native camera app, and with HDR on auto. The only setting that was changed was the megapixel count, amping up the full resolution of each camera. The photos were taken at Las Vegas during the National Association of Broadcasters convention last month.

iPhone 7 and 7 Plus get a stable jailbreak on iOS 10.1.1 with extra_recipe+yaluX

Developer xerub has just released an updated version of Ian Beer’s mach_portal exploit, entitled extra_recipe. This new iteration should resolve the stability issues which have been plaguing iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus users on the iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak.

Yalu creator Luca Todesco has in turn picked up the extra_recipe code and paired it with his Yalu jailbreak, compiling the project into a downloadable .ipa to create extra_recipe+yaluX, which effectively replaces his previous yalu+mach_portal tool.
