It stands to reason that if you’ve just shelled out a ton of hard-earned cash on an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus, then you’ll probably want to provide it with a certain level of protection.
Some smartphone owners often choose to take the risks that come associated with using a device with no case or protective shell, but if you want to protect your investment, then carry on reading for a run down of the best cases available for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
Twelve South’s BookBook case for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus is undoubtedly one of the more unique case offerings out there. The all-new product is a wallet case, hands-free stand, and removable case all wrapped up in one little vintage book-themed leather shell.
BookBook is available directly from twelvesouth.com, comes in either black or brown options and retails for $59.99 with free US shipping.
Apple Leather Case
No official Apple introduction of a new iPhone would be complete without some accompanying accessories. The unveiling of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus handsets was no different. Apple’s premium leather cases are officially made with the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus in mind, and are offered in Midnight Blue, Saddle Brown, Rose Gray, Brown, or Black.
The Apple Leather Cases are available direct from the apple.com/shop accessory pages, and retail for $45.00 for the 6s version, or $49.00 for the larger 6s Plus option.
Apple Silicon Case
If you want to offer some official Apple branded protection to your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus but leather is a little over the top for you needs, then it’s always worthwhile considering Apple’s official Silicon Case option. Cases are offered in White, Charcoal Gray, Stone, Antique White, Blue, Turquoise, Midnight Blue, Lavender, Pink, Orange, or Red.
Apple’s official silicon cases are available to purchase directly from the accessory section of apple.com/shop, and cost $35.00 for the 6s version, or $39.00 for the larger 6s Plus.
The Skyfall series from Caseology offers a shock-absorbing bumper around the outside of the iPhone, as well as a crystal clear scratch resistant back cover. That protection is nicely wrapped up in an attractive premium TPU polycarbonate case that should offer a fairly high level of protection for a relatively low price.
Caseology are offering the Skyfall case via Amazon for $12.99 in Gold, Silver, Charcoal Black, or Sepia Gold color for both 6s and 6s Plus.
Yousave Accessories iPhone 6s / Plus Case Clear Silicone Gel Cover
The Yousave clear soft silicone cover pretty much lives up to its name. The extremely cheap and affordable offering comes with a clear screen protector and microfibre cloth as well as a TPU gel protective skin that should provide a small additional layer of added protection for the mounted iPhone.
This particular case is available via Amazon for both 6s and 6s Plus, and costs just $5.99. It’s perfect for minimalists.
Caudate Veil iPhone 6s / Plus Premium Ultra Thin Case
The Veil case for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus is likely one of the thinnest cases that you’ll be able to get your hands on, at just 0.35mm. This form factor will undeniably appeal to those individuals who want to protect the device but maintain the iPhone’s tiny form factor as best possible. Caudabe is also offering a no-hassle, one year warranty with the case.
Available via Amazon in Wisp Black or Frost for $15.88 (6s Plus) and $14.95 (6s).
OBLIQ Premium Slim Fit Thin Armor Polycarbonate Titanium Case
The OBLIQ premium fit shock resistant case offers a premium look and feel for a relatively tiny price-tag. The perfectly engineered fit is designed to offer the best level of protection to the iPhone contained within, and it’s even airbrushed with a modern, stylish design that makes it look a lot more expensive that the underlying price.
The OBLIQ is available directly from Amazon in a range of colors for a very agreeable $11.99.
Spigen Neo Hybrid Carbon Case for Apple iPhone 6s / Plus
The Spigen Neo Hybrid Carbon Case for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus is not only extremely beautiful to look at, but it also has a reinforced frame for more durability and an extremely snug and tight fit on the device inside. The two-piece construction serves up a hard PC frame with a shock-absorbing TPU accompaniment.
The Spigen is available directly from Amazon for $18.99 (6s) and $23.99 (6s Plus).
Speck CandyShell Inked Case
The Speck CandyShell cases are always extremely popular, and the company’s iPhone 6s and 6s Plus variants are proving no different. The scratch-resistant hard coating keeps the vibrant colors of the shell pristine while protecting the iPhone underneath. There’s also the addition of a raised rim around the outside of the case to protect the screen of the device.
Speck are offering the CandyShell in six different colors for the iPhone 6s, and three colors for the iPhone 6s Plus directly through Amazon for $39.95.
Jstyle by iLuv – Leather Wallet Case
In a similar fashion to the BookBook by Twelve South, the Jstyle by iLuv is about more than just being a protective case. The product is crafted from genuine leather with a Saffiano finish and has space for the owner to store up to eight credit or debit cards. Protection for the actual iPhone is provided by a durable polycarbonate cradle that holds and “cradles” the hardware.
The Jstyle is offered in a black finish for the iPhone 6s for $39.99. iPhone 6s Plus owners can choose from either black ($49.99), or Pink ($39.99). All options are available via Amazon.
Spigen Tough Armor Case
If a Spigen case is what you’re after, but you want to offer the best possible protection, then the Spigen Tough Armor case could be the solution. The product comes with MIL-STD 810G 516.6 protection certification and is built with Air Cushion technology to give the maximum possible protection against drops.
The Spigen tough Armor case is available directly from Amazon starting from $19.99 (6s Plus) and $18.99 (6s) for the TA Gunmetal option.
Tech21 Evo Mesh Sport Case
Purchasing directly from Apple can often give consumers piece of mind about the level of quality that they will be receiving. If you fall into that category, then you may wish to check out the Tech21 Evo Mesh Sport Case for Apple’s 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch devices. The product comes with “intelligent impact protection”, and has been designed to try and stand up to all use cases, whatever the activity. It’s super-lightweight, ultra-thin and comes with FlexShock technology.
The Tech21 Evo Mesh Sport Case is available directly from Apple’s Online Store, starting from $39.95.
