From pay phones to ice cream cones
This week’s roundup of new iPhone cases touches upon a few interesting themes, from the world of food to that of fashion—with some classic options in between.
The Tungsten (iPhone 6 Plus; $40) offers a two-piece design with a multilayer frame made of polycarbonate, silicon, and acrylics.
Built to withstand drops from up to 7-feet high, the case includes reinforced corners to protect the most vulnerable parts of your handset and a raised bezel to prevent damage to your screen.
The Dana Tanamachi (iPhone 6; $25) features stylish, trendy prints designed by the eponymous graphic designer.
Made of semi-flexible material, the case installs easily, covers the iPhone’s buttons without obstructing access to ports and speakers, and sports slightly raised edges to prevent accidental scratches to your screen.

The Wetsuit (iPhone 6; $80) renders your iPhone waterproof without interfering with its touchscreen.
Made of silicon and polycarbonate, the case features a non-slip rubber exterior for a superior grip, meets military test drop standards up to 6.6 feet, and comes in electric orange, silvertail, or blackest black.
The Ice Cream Sandwich (iPhone 6; $40) turns your handset into a tasty treat that will remind you of summer all year long.
Slim and lightweight, the case covers all ports and controls for added safety, and can be customized with your own text, image, or design.
The Beadlock (iPhone 6; $80) puts emphasis on protection with a frame made from aluminum and high-grade stainless steel, which iShock claims can help improve the iPhone’s reception. This rugged case includes a screen protector and comes in blue, red, gloss black, or green.
The Wallet Case (iPhone 6 and 6 Plus; $39 to $49) gives your handset a unique look by combining a wood frame with a silicone bumper.
The handmade case includes an external compartment that holds up to six credit or ID cards and comes in several color combinations.
The Field Case (iPhone 6; $17) provides excellent protection with a semi-rigid cover and flexible thermoplastic frame.
The case sports a raised squared pattern designed to enhance your grip, and a “snag-free” design that helps your iPhone slip easily in and out of your pocket.
The Sneak (iPhone 6 Plus; $40) sports an elegant book cover layout and includes interior slots for cash and credit cards.
The case doubles as a viewing stand in landscape orientation, includes a molded mounting system to firmly secure your iPhone in place, and features a magnetic closure for extra peace of mind while you’re on the go.
Zazzle has a treasure-trove of unique designs, including this one. The New York Pay Phone (all iPhone models; $43 to $53) sports the image of an old-school payphone on the back of a hard shell, plastic exterior case.
The Pay Phone offers full access to all ports and buttons, features a bezel to protect your screen when laying down flat, and comes in three models with different levels of protection: Barely There, Tough Xtreme, and Tough.
