Pick your case!
This week’s roundup of new iPhone cases has a bit of everything: Cases with radiation shields for extra safety, a mirror-sticking solution for the adventurous type, multi-purpose pouches, and hardcore protective shells.
The Heritage (iPhone 6 and 6 Plus; $50 to $55) sports a rock and roll theme, inspired by the famous black touring trunks used to store instruments while bands are on the road.
The case not only offers a tribute to music history, but also comes with an aluminum frame and a polycarbonate back plate for maximum protection, and is available in silver or black.
Don’t let the SafeSleeve (iPhone 6 and 6 Plus; $50) fool you: this wallet case actually protects you from the potentially harmful radiation that your iPhone emits.
The SafeSleeve sports a military-grade shielding material specifically engineered to prevent unwanted exposure to extreme radio frequencies, includes pockets for your cards and cash, and can serve as a stand to prop your iPhone up in landscape orientation.
The Solo (iPhone 6 and 6 Plus; $30) is a flexible, translucent soft-shell case, with four solid colors to choose from: black, pink, blue, and white.
Made of non-toxic, BPA-free materials, the case includes press-through button covers to prevent dirt build-up, reinforced corners to prevent cracks caused by accidental bumps, and a matte finish to ensure a long lasting life without oily smears. As a plus, the Solo comes with a yearlong subscription to Surfguard, iSkin’s VPN service that allows you to surf the Internet anonymously with an encrypted connection.
The Leather Folio (iPhone 6; $50) is a stylish leather folio-style case that includes pockets for your credit cards and cash inside its cover.
The case comes in four solid colors—blue, black, brown, and red—and can be easily snapped on to your iPhone for quick installation and fast removal.
The X Armor (iPhone 6 and 6 Plus; $20) focuses on heavy-duty drop protection thanks to a lightweight, dual-layered design and a shock absorbing core.
The case includes reinforced corners on the side, back, and front for additional peace of mind, features raised edges to protect your screen when placed face down, and is available in a number of metallic finishes, including black, armor gray, solace blue, sword silver, victorious gold, glacier white, black, and gray.
The Revolution (iPhone 6 Plus; $25) protects your iPhone from the harshest elements, and is available in a number of good-looking color combinations, including white/gray, blue/black, black/black, and pink/gray.
The case features a dual-layered construction with a polycarbonate frame designed to fend off damage from shock and drops. It also sports press-through button covers to prevent dirt and dust from building up, and its attached screen protector keeps water and other grime away while retaining all of the iPhone’s touchscreen functions.
The Jakkit Basix (iPhone 6; $9) is a polycarbonate hard-shell chase that keeps your iPhone scratch free, while protecting against accidental bumps—all without adding extra bulk.
Available in red, gold, clear, gray, or black, the case provides precise cutouts for all buttons and ports, includes a flash deflector that prevents unwanted halos when taking pictures, and sports raised edges to protect your screen when placed face down on a flat surface.
The Smootch (iPhone 6 and 6 Plus; $23) offers lightweight, slim protection—and the option of sticking your iPhone to smooth surfaces like mirrors and cabinets.
The case uses microsuction to create a vacuum that is compatible with most non-porous surfaces, which lets you stick your iPhone virtually anywhere whenever you need to have your hands free. Made from pliable rubber material that increases your grip and protects from occasional bumps, the Smootch is available in purple, white, clear, black, orange, green, or blue.
The Padded Gear Pouch (all iPhone models; $59) is a versatile pouch that can hold all of your essentials, including your iPhone.
Designed to be used either on its own or stashed inside a bigger bag, the pouch sports a zippered and padded main pocket, additional interior pockets for accessories like chargers and cables, and an external zippered canvas pouch for extra storage. The Padded Gear Pouch comes in ballistic black or waxed canvas—two neutral colors that easily match anything.
