Transparent backs and leather accents dominate this week's roundup
We’re seeing a lot of clear cases in this week’s collection of new iPhone cases, as well as classy leather cases that keep your iPhone safe from everyday wear-and-tear.
The Grip (iPhone 6; $20) is a form-fitting hard shell case that shows off the iPhone’s sleek design while still protecting it from daily hazards.
Easy to install and remove, the case features a ruggedized material for better grip, includes press-though button overlays that help prevent dust and dirt from building up, and features raised edges to keep the iPhone’s display scratch free when placed face down on a flat surface. The Grip comes in purple, black, or pink.
The Satin (iPhone 6; $25) features bold color options with high-gloss accents and a brushed-aluminum textured finish, which also provides a better grip.
Available in grape, blueberry, charcoal, raspberry, or black, the case provides precise cutouts for your iPhone’s ports, buttons, and back camera. The Satin has also been treated with an antimicrobial solution that minimizes the effect of potentially harmful germs.
The EXO24 (iPhone 6; $260 to $300) sports a sturdy build that combines a resin composite core and wood veneer finish for a striking effect.
The EXO24 features an impact-resistant brass skeleton to provide extra corner protection, as well as four stainless steel screws to hold the case together. It can even be personalized with an engraving.
If you don’t want to conceal your iPhone’s shiny finish, the Reveal (iPhone 6; $20) is for you. This slim, transparent hard-shell case features a clear back with a rubber bumper that offers extra protection for the iPhone’s edges and corners.
Made of polycarbonate, the case adds minimal thickness to keep a slim profile, sports press-through button covers that help prevent dirt buildup, and offers unobstructed access to the iPhone’s Lightning port and headphone jack. The bumper comes in hot pink, black, or white.
The Maple and Leather (iPhone 6 and 6 Plus; $129 to $139) is an exquisite, precision-crafted wooden case lined with leather.
Easy to install and remove, the Maple and Leather features laser-cut walnut button overlays for an elegant look, provides unobstructed access to the iPhone’s back-facing camera, Lightning port, and headphone jack, and even doubles as a stand in landscape orientation.
Pad & Quill
The Traveler (iPhone 6 Plus; $80) features a convenient little pocket where you can store a credit card or photo ID.
Handcrafted from full-grain leather, the case sports parachute-grade stitching and a generously sized camera opening, and comes in Galloper Black, Dark Chocolate, or Whiskey.
The PrivacyShield (iPhone 6; $36) is a screen protector that prevents scratches and smudges while keeping unwanted eyes away from your data thanks to its privacy-focused design.
The screen protector is built with an extra-sturdy layer of tempered glass, and sports an oleophobic coating that helps deflect fingerprints and smudges while keeping it easy to clean.
If you like blasting music through your iPhone’s speakers, you’ll like the Boombox (iPhone 6; $23). It amplifies your music up to three times its normal speakerphone volume—without the need for extra battery power—while still protecting your phone from accidental drops and bumps.
The case turns into a convenient stand in landscape orientation and comes in four cheerful colors: wine red, turquoise, lime green, and black.
The Vario Edge (iPhone 6; $40) sports a bumper and a built-in kickstand that doubles as a handle for you to use while taking pictures or capturing video.
The case sports a transparent back that shows off the iPhone’s design, features a bumper with a rubberized finish that helps improve your grip, and turns into a stand both in landscape and portrait orientation with support for multiple viewing angles.
