    Hey Guys,

    Really annoyed right now, just received a non grip version of the speck presidio case, and it's totally different to the grip version. The cut outs on the bottom are intended to accommodate a headphone jack, but it's a case specifically designed for an iPhone 7, and the camera fit is intended for an iPhone 7.

    Anyone have any idea what this even is! It doesn't even fit the 6, it covers the microphone and rubs against the camera!!

    Cheers

    Where did you buy it from? My iPhone 7 Plus Presidio has none of those issues. Is your case possibly a knockoff?

    Wow! Strange! They must be doing something different with their iPhone 7 case lineup than their iPhone 7 Plus, or they have decided post-launch to broaden out the iPhone 7 line to include iPhone 6s cases. I can assure you that at least initially, none of the iPhone 7 Plus Presidio cases were like that. I have 2 Presidio Clear, a Clear Glitter, A Clear + Print, an Inked, a regular Presidio and 2 Presidio Grip cases and none of them have those features...

    Let us know what you find out!

    Yeah, it's totally bizarre. I have the speck presidio grip for the iPhone 7 and it's perfectly normal, e.g no headphone cutout. I brought that a couple of weeks ago, I do hope they've not changed the design, that would totally suck!

    Bad news, Speck just confirmed this is a change to the design. It looks completely crap, completely ruins the case imho...

    Wow talk about OCD. Most of the new iPhone cases are doing that to accommodate the 6, it's functional… Find it perfectly normal as my UAG also has this.

    Meh, well not really OCD. Could be, but IMO with the amount of money we are paying for these cases they could give us a cleaner look.

    Now if it was a 5 - 10 dollar generic case then I wouldn't mind at all.

    Disappointing news! Do you know if this is being done for both the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus? I can see it being more tolerable for the iPhone 7 than the 7 Plus, because the camera opening isn't going to be so massively oversized on the iPhone 6s as it is on the iPhone 6s Plus...

    Yikes! I don't like this at all. I have three of the Presidio grip cases for my Plus and none of them are like that! I've been eyeing one of the Inked cases on their website but now I'm afraid to order it. I definitely don't like the "new" version with that cut out. It really makes it look like a 6S case.

    Yeah it looks rubbish IRL too, I honestly would avoid. Speck don't seem to care really, they have all the reviews out with the nice looking cases, so people buy them, then they want us to pay half the price of the case just to return it to them! Really underhand move I think...

    Yep, unfortunately ALL Presidio cases will come like this from now on. Trust me, even the plain old 7 case looks ridiculous on the iPhone 6!

    I bought the Speck Presido Clear & Glitter case direct from their store (in the UK though) two weeks back, and mine have the original iPhone 7 Plus cutouts where they should be. Glad I didn't hold off any longer, this change doesn't make any sense aesthetically. They must want a 'one size fits all' lineup.

    You got lucky, mine was the UK Store too.

    I've just received my Rhinoshield Playproof and it's honestly the perfect case in every way for me. Much happier with it!

    In The USA, Speck is selling this version on Amazon website that supposedly fits both the 6s/6s+ and the 7/7+ phones that has the headphone jack opening on the bottom of the case.

    Oh yeah Speck had to put something on their website about the backwards compatibility with the 6/6s because I think a lot of people were complaining. And it's also different for different colors.
