The new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus hit the stores last Friday, and with that comes a whole new selection of cases designed to make sure that you protect your brand new toy so it remains scratch and nick-free.
Before you go on a buying spree for your latest gadget, know that the minimal changes to both the models — the 6S series is slightly thicker than its predecessors — actually means most of your old cases will probably still fit. But one can never have too many options, right?
X-Doria Defense Lux
This case is a rare combination of luxe style and military grade protection for your phone. When you’ve just shelled out that much money for your brand new 6S or 6S Plus — not to mention queued up hours to get your hands on it — then the hard, impact- and scratch-resistant casing fused with a leather, carbon fibre or crocodile skin detail is very much welcome.
The case is available on Amazon for US$59.99.
The Verus Pebble
The Verus Pebble is ergonomically designed with its curved back, and comes with a discreet but handy card storage option. It also has a sleek aesthetic that harks back to Apple’s design of the Magic Mouse. If you want something that’s more than a basic, flat phone case, the Verus Pebble is a creative option for your new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus.
The Pebble is available in gold, gray, black and white, and you can order it directly from the Verus site for US$24.99.
Pure Gear Slim Shell PRO
If, like a lot of iPhone fans, you’re partial to its design, then the new Pure Gear Slim Shell PRO might be the case you want. The suspension technology and front lip on the case makes it less susceptible to drops and shocks than cheaper options you get from neighbourhood shops, while its clear back makes sure that the phone’s impressive minimalist look shines through.
The case also offers a protective bumper that is made with durable rubber and plastic. Itcomplements the colour of your device, and is available in gray, blue, rose and clear options. It is selling for US$29.99 here.
Orbit Phone Case
If a snap-on phone case isn’t your thing, you might want to check out Orbit’s leather phone and card sleeve.
It is made from durable leather and features slots for all attendant ports, giving you easy access to your new handset. The case also comes with a card slot, making it a handy option for those who need someplace convenient to store their public transport cards. The case is available for US$49 on their website, and comes in Chocolate, Grizzly (a nice gray hue) and black.
