Apple unveiled its new generation of iPhones Wednesday, putting months of rumors to rest. The new models are water-resistant and come with longer battery life, but it's the new iPhone accessories that really have people buzzing. The new Bluetooth, wireless AirPods are one of the starring design features of the smartphones.
Orders for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus begin Friday. The phones will be available in jet black, black, gold, silver and rose gold.
Now that the big reveal has been made, here are five brands to check out for the latest cases and accessories for the new iPhone 7.
Moshi revealed nine new case lines and three new screen protectors Wednesday to coincide with Apple’s new iPhone launch.

The cases will range in price from $22.95 to $55.
The San Francisco-based label will be rolling out screen protectors in AirFoil Glass, IonGlass and a matte-plastic iVisor AG. Moshi also launched its new Mythro Air and Vortex Air Bluetooth headphones, which will launch in late October.
