If you’re that type of individual who loves to keep up with the current technological curve by ensuring that you have the latest and greatest smartphone release, then you’ll be fully aware of the associated expense that comes with maintaining that status. Purchasing a new device every twelve months can be bad enough, especially when price hikes occur in certain territories due to fluctuating currencies, but that problem is often compounded by the need to buy new accessories as well. There’s some good news on that front with Apple’s own digital store suggesting that its existing official cases for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus should fit its newest 6s models.

And that is exactly what they have done. Reading into the wording associated on the company’s new iPhone 6s/6s Plus cases page tells its own story:

This information essentially tells us that despite the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus being a little chunkier in certain dimensions, it should still fit nicely into existing case accessories, at least that is what appears to be the case with official Apple accessories.
As for all other third-party cases, more often than not they are usually designed with what may seem like a small amount of play in them, but enough to cover this type of situation. With that said, the extremely tight fitting cases that exist within the accessory market may let you down when trying to get the slightly thicker iPhone 6s/6s Plus into it.
