For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with popular accessory maker Pad & Quill to give MacRumors readers a chance to win an expertly crafted case designed for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

Pad & Quill makes a wide range of accessories for Apple's iOS devices, all made by hand from high-quality wood and leather, and its new line of iPhone 7 cases are no exception.

The Luxury Pocket Book iPhone 7 Case, the first case we're giving away, is a book-style case that's designed to both house and protect the iPhone 7. It features a cover made from full-grain American saddle leather to keep the iPhone 7's screen safe from scratches when in a pocket, and it has a birch wood cradle that holds the iPhone in place in case of a drop or impact while still leaving ports fully accessible.

Designed to perfectly fit the iPhone 7 or the iPhone 7 Plus, it comes with a wood frame to protect the area around the camera and a bookmark accent to complete the look. Inside the cover, there's space for up to five cards (six in the iPhone 7 Plus version) along with a clear ID pocket and a hidden cash pocket.

Available in several tasteful color combinations, the Luxury Book iPhone 7 case is priced at $99.95 while the iPhone 7 Plus version is priced at $109.95.

We're also giving away some of Pad & Quill's Woodline cases for the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, priced at $49.95. Available in four hard woods, including American Cherry, Rosewood, Premium American Walnut, and Zebra Wood, the Woodline is billed as the "world's thinnest, strongest wood case" for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.

The Woodline case snaps onto the two devices and has been crafted to fit perfectly with access to all ports. It's got an ultra-strong polymer core, able to keep the iPhone safe from drops. The case measures in at less than a millimeter thin and is 5x stronger than steel at the same weight. The wood is polished and resistant to scratches so it will look great for a long time.


Three MacRumors readers will win one of Pad & Quill's Luxury Book Cases and three MacRumors readers will win one of Pad & Quill's Woodline cases, all in the size and color of the winner's choosing.

Hate these kind of cases.

Makes the phone way too awkward. For example:

Say you want to show a friend a video, giving him the phone your basically giving him your whole wallet.

Taking pictures is awkward.

The added weight and 'flap' makes the balance off center when holding the phone.


Giving a stranger directions on your phone, the encounter is now has more risk.

Although you get to not carry your wallet around!

The Woodline cases sound interesting and look pretty nice. It's impressive that they're strong and scratch resistant, which you wouldn't assume at first glance.

Always used Pad and Quill cases. Last forever and great quality.

Yet another competition that alienates non-usa readers though.

I've always liked the flip open cases like the first couple pictured. I used to have one from BookBook for my 4S. But I hate the pockets on the inside because they leave gross smudge patterns on my phone screen. I wish someone would make a flip open case that just had the microfiber lining on the inside to keep my phone screen clean. I don't need the pockets for cash or cards.

Yeah, these case styles are awful. Had a friend with a Galaxy Note and one of these cases and it was ridiculous to use, hated it. But to each his own I guess.
