New iPhone cases of the week
This week’s roundup of new iPhone cases introduces us to the Popslate, a case with a battery-powered black-and-white screen to give you quick info at a glance. Plus, a new leather wallet, colorful shells, and an option just for Lego fans. Read on!
Available in pink, violet, or yellow, the case has press-through button overlays to prevent contamination from dust and dirt, and includes a protruding perimeter frame to minimize scratches and smudges to your screen.
The Universal Wallet Case (iPhone SE and 6/6s; $50 MSRP, $30 on Amazon) is a folio-style wallet case with plenty of room for cash and a few credit cards.
Handcrafted with leather, the case includes an interior pocket secured by a flap, four card slots, a cash compartment, and a removable wristlet strap.
The SealLine Waterproof E-Case (all iPhone models; $19.95 to $29.95 MSRP, same price on Amazon) is a clear touchscreen-compatible pouch that keeps your iPhone dry at all times. The pouch sports a waterproof zippered closure, sturdy welded seams built to withstand daily wear and tear, and a smooth surface designed to easily slip in and out of your pockets. It comes in green, red, black, or blue.
The case is slim and lightweight, includes a nicely-sized camera cut out for glare-free photos, and comes with a special coating that improves your grip while reducing scratches and blemishes.
The case offers air-cushioned corners for advanced impact absorption, a shock-resistant screen protector, and cutouts for its buttons and ports. The Covert comes in clear, space gray, rose pink, peach, and gold.
The Popslate 2 (iPhone 6/6s and 6 Plus/6s Plus; $129 MSRP) has a secondary screen that displays info from compatible third-party apps, like incoming notifications or driving directions. Think of it as a dedicated widget screen, filled with glanceable must-know info.
The case itself includes a built-in battery to extend your surf and talk time (and to power the second screen), sports a raised bezel to protect your iPhone’s display, and comes in gray, black, or white. It ships in October.
The FreeRunner (iPhone SE; $35 MSRP, select colors $10 to $35 on Amazon) is a three-layered case that combines polycarbonate and rubber for extra sturdiness, and sports press-through button overlays. It also has a raised front edge to prevent screen damage, and is available in six patterned designs.
The Full Color metal and glass cover (iPhone 6/6s and 6 Plus/6s Plus; $39.95 MSRP) has three separate pieces—a front cover, back cover, and bumper—and the company promises easy installation to boot.
The thin case sports an oleophobic coating to minimize smudges, includes a touch-sensitive tempered glass screen protector, and offers matching press-through button overlays. It’s available in gold, silver, blue, purple, or black.
The case combines a hard exterior with a soft rubber bumper that keeps your buttons safe, features a beveled edge to lift your screen off flat surfaces, and comes in white or black.
