which iPhone version should I design on?
Posted: Saturday, August 10, 2019 10:43:34 PM
I design a lot of iPhone cases... what I do is: I just click on the iPhone and leave it on the Casemate 7/8 , Barely There.

Is this a good tactic? Or should I be placing my designs on the LATEST version of the iPhone?

Also, I've completely neglected the Samsung Galaxy. I know people can simply use the drop-down and click on one of the Samsung cases... but would it be better if I made a whole separate listing for Samsung cases?

Since the only phone cases I sell with any regularity are Otterbox I am probably not the best person to answer but anyway... I try to mix it up.

Most people I know are still using older model phones and not just iPhones. in fact most of my family use Samsung galaxies of various ages.
I use an old refurbished iPhone 6.

And then there are teenagers like my grandson who got an iPhone SE for Christmas. I think many parents bought their kids one of those because they were the cheapest option for a new iPhone.

So I try to have a few designs with each type of phone so that I can attract different buyers. Then they can see my other designs and choose the phone they need from the drop down menu.

It sounds great in theory but as I said I don't sell many phone cases except for Otterbox, so maybe it isn't actually a good plan.

This is interesting. I just wasn't sure, because it seems when a new iPhone comes out, everyone rushed out to get it. But that may just be a false perception. Who can buy a new iPhone every time one comes out? And for the cost, I personally would hold on to it for as long as possible.

Maybe I should give Otterbox cases a try. I have none in my main shop. I think in the only shop I tried Otterbox cases, I did sell one.

I asked because I feel like my all over patterns look good on these types of products... yet I hardly ever sell phonecases.

Thanks, Shelli. Roses

I think Otterbox sell well because this is one of the only places to get a custom Otterbox that is not just a skin.

I just sold 2 in the last 2 weeks.

I need to add more! Smile

So far I have only sold 2 phone cases, and they were both the Case-Mate Tough for the iPhone X. I do try and put my designs on several different cases for different styles of phones to cover all my bases, although it's quite time-consuming.
