Paging Mr. Six
Apple may not have released its next iPhone yet, but that’s not stopping case manufacturers from announcing cases to fit the rumored new models. We've got a few of those accessories in this week’s roundup, alongside our usual array of products that work with current models.
The Caplet (iPhone 5 and 5s; $7) is a minimalist case whose unique two-tone treatment decorates your handset with a splash of color.
Finished with a high-gloss, protective coating, the case protects against bumps and scratches without adding bulk. It comes in red, blue, cranberry, white, aqua, or violet.
The Flower Leather (iPhone 4, 4s, 5, 5c, and 5s; $25) is a leather sleeve with two built-in slots that can be used to store either cards or cash.
The handmade case is specifically designed to prevent damage from drops, and adds some style to your iPhone with a lovely flower deocoration on the front.
The Unity (iPhone 6; $5) provides ultimate protection for Apple’s yet-to-be-released handset, with bumper points at the corners for additional cushioning against drops.
Made with a soft TPU liner and a hard outer shell, the snap-on case is lightweight and easy to install, offers easy access to all ports and buttons, and features an enlarged camera cutout to optimize picture quality.
The Colored Pencil (iPhone 4, 4s, 5, 5c, and 5s; $15) turns your handset into a box of pencils, complete with textured printing that creates a 3-D effect.
The case is made in the United States and features all the appropriate openings for your iPhone’s buttons, ports, and cameras.
The Protector Heart (iPhone 5 and 5s; $6) personalizes your handset with a heart-shaped design and flashing lights that turn on when receiving a call.
Made of PC plastic, this slim case protects from bumps and scratches, and its design offers easy access to all of your handset’s functions, ports, and buttons.
The Leather Case (iPhone 6; price unavailable) protects your handset on all sides with a padded design that minimizes bulk.
Made of quality, handcrafted leather, the case sports a non-magnetic closure alongside a thermoplastic-polymer inner structure that, the company says, helps prevent electromagnetic interference.
The Error 403 (iPhone 4, 4s, 5, and 5s; $45) features a nifty comic design by the anonymous artist error403, famous for webcomics and jokes posted on Internet forums.
The case comes in two designs: the colorful Mecha Sunderu, and the monochromatic Jitsu Wa Sunderu.
The Fuzion+ (iPhone 5 and 5s; $89) offers superior protection with an injection-molded TPU inner shell and an aircraft-grade aluminum outer case.
Available in raw, gunmetal, matte, or camo aluminum, the case includes an integrated magnetic grip that works on many metallic surfaces, as well as a magnetic mount for your car.
The Air Cushion (iPhone 6; $17) is a transparent bumper case for Apple's rumored next phone that features a clear, rigid back panel and a flexible bumper.
Made from a combination of TPU and polycarbonate, the case protects from drops and scratches without hiding your handset’s sleek design.
