...plus, rugged cases, designs for kids, and more!
This week’s roundup of new iPhone cases includes cases for fitness enthusiasts, a waterproof pick from SnowLizard, a new quilted pattern from Sena, and much more!
Attention all running buffs: The Storage Plus (iPhone 6/6s and 6 Plus/6s Plus; $45 to $50) is a fitness armband that holds your iPhone and other must-haves, like your house keys and credit cards, allowing you to take your iPhone with you when you work out. It also features an adjustable strap, an integrated headphone jack, and a transparent window that lets you use your iPhone without having to remove it from the band.
The Quick Snap Case (iPhone 6/6s; $30) features a textured exterior that provides extra grip while still letting the iPhone’s design shine through.
Available in clear, litho/black, blue moon, digi/bright pink, hairline/gray, the Quick Snap has cutouts for the iPhone’s Lightning port, buttons, and headphone jack, and also has raised edges around the iPhone’s touchscreen and back-facing camera to prevent scratches when placed on a flat surface.
The Sandstone (iPhone 6/6s; $27) is one of the oddest cases we’ve ever seen hit the market. This seemingly-standard polycarbonate hard shell case was made by Chinese smartphone developer OnePlus, designed to mimic the look and feel of its Android-based OnePlus 2. Is this a clever marketing ploy to attract OS-jumpers, or is OnePlus just trolling us?
Pad & Quill
The Leather Clutch (iPhone 6 Plus/6s Plus; $60) includes a dedicated compartment for your iPhone 6s Plus, and provides extra room for your cash and credit cards.
Made with full-grain saddle leather, the clutch includes a convenient detachable wrist strap, a soft pigskin lining to keep scratches and smudges away, and sailboat-grade nylon stitching for durability. The Leather Clutch is available in three great-looking finishes: Galloper Black, Chestnut Red, or Whiskey Tan.
Currently available for pre-order, the Isa Quilted Snap-on Case (iPhone 6/6s; $45) sports a shock-absorbent quilt pattern that protects your iPhone 6s in style.
The case features precise cutouts for all of the iPhone’s ports and buttons, includes a microfiber lining for further padding and that minimizes smudges, and comes in combinations of red/gold, black/gold, periwinkle/gold, or black/rose gold. The Isa Quilted is expected to ship in January.
The SLTough (iPhone 6 and 6s; $60) is a rugged waterproof case with a removable back cover secured by two solid latches to keep it in place.
The case can be submerged up to six feet (perfect for taking photos underwater), has been tested to withstand drops from up to six feet high, and comes in orange, black, yellow, or white.
The Faceplate screen protector (iPhone 6/6s and 6 Plus/6s Plus; $15 to $20) reinforces your screen to prevent damage from direct impacts.
The faceplate sports a matte finish to minimize glare and reflections, and ships with a microfiber cloth and a cleaning sticker to help you apply it, bubble free. The Faceplate has a colorful rim, available in white, black, lilac purple, slate grey, fuchsia pink, or carrot orange.
The Free Run (iPhone 6/6s; $34) combines a TPU inner core with a hard polycarbonate exterior finished with mesh fabric to keep your iPhone cool, even during periods of heavy use.
The case features a raised bezel, includes press-through button overlays, and is available in red, green, or purple.
The Monsters (iPhone 6/6s and 6 Plus/6s Plus; $25) is a collection of five different cartoon monsters, available in black, blue, pink, green, or orange.
Manufactured with anti-scratch TPU material, the case sports a matte-finish to repel fingerprints, an anti-glare guard around the iPhone’s back-facing camera for picture-perfect shots, and press-through button overlays.
