Post-holiday treats for your new iPhone
This week’s roundup of new iPhone cases brings you an assortment of picks to match that shiny new iPhone you found under you Christmas tree.
The QCard (iPhone 6 Plus; $40) features an ultra-slim design with plenty of storage options, thanks to a handy compartment that can hold credit cards and cash.
Available in black onyx, champagne gold, and pacific green, the case doubles as a viewing stand in landscape orientation, sports button overlays, and has a raised bezel to protect your iPhone's screen when placed face-down on a flat surface.
The DRACO 6 (iPhone 6; $90) is an aluminium bumper case with a curved design to provide a comfortable, ergonomic grip.
This lightweight bumper features additional shock absorbing pads to prevent accidental damage, and comes in electric blue, flare red, champagne gold, meteor black, astro silver, or graphite gray.
The Material6 (iPhone 6; $29) is a thin hard-shell case that completely surrounds and protects the back of your iPhone.
The easy-to-install case prevents damage from accidental drops and bumps, and can be customized with four different back plates in finishes like birdseye maple, curly figured cherry, south American rosewood, or walnut.
The Extended Battery Case (iPhone 6 Plus; $85) packs a 4000mAh battery that keeps your iPhone going for extra talking or surfing time.
Besides being able to charge your iPhone in less that two hours, the case features a texturized rubber frame for extra protection, leaves access to your iPhone’s Lightning port, and comes in black, blue, green, or pink.
A word of warning, however: The MOTA isn't Apple-licensed, so the case may run into iOS compatibility issues down the line.
The Leather Wallet Case 80-degree (iPhone 6 and 6 Plus; $46 to $51) offers a simple design in an always elegant gray finish.
Made of vegetable-tanned leather, the case sports outside pockets where you can stash your credit cards or photo ID, precise cutouts for the iPhone's buttons, headphone jack, and Lightning port, as well as a padded interior liner to cushion your iPhone.

The Bella Fino (iPhone 6 Plus; $75) is a luxurious, fashionable leather book-style folio case.
Your iPhone attaches to the Bella Fino via a super sticky adhesive that doesn't leave any residue behind if you need to remove the case. It also sports multiple card slots in the inside front cover, and is available in three handsome shades—whiskey, dark chocolate, or galloper black.
The Patriot (iPhone 5/5S; $60) provides your iPhone with advanced impact protection—it can withstand drops from up to 13 feet. This rugged case is made from a shock-absorbing material that dissipates damage from impact, and also includes dust covers for all of the iPhone's ports and a built-in screen protector for added safety.
The Vest (iPhone 5/5S; $50) claims to reduce wireless radiation from your iPhone by up to 89-percent while adding a layer of protection.
Available in gray, red, blue, pink, white, or black, the case features a contemporary, simple design, and includes a screen protector to prevent damage to your screen.
