The 20 Best iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Cases

There’s a good chance you recently got your hands on a shiny new iPhone 6, and now you’re in search of ways to protect your precious investment. Fret not friend, as we are here to sift through the sea of clutter, delivering nothing but the best iPhone cases to you on a silver platter.

Apple may have just recently released their highly anticipated iPhone 6, but third party product designers have had no trouble flooding the market with plenty of options. The tech giant has even offered up a few solid offerings itself. Whether you opted for the standard 4.7-inch offering, or the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus, one thing remains the same – you’re going to need protection. From bumpers and sleeves to wallets and all out armor shields, we’ve put together a list of the 20 best iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus cases available.

Speck CandyShell Case

Speck CandyShell Case

Not much has changed since we picked this as the best overall iPhone 5 case last year. Sure the brand may have been acquired by the multinational luggage maker Samsonite, but the quality is still second to none. Military-grade drop tested, the hard shell exterior features a raised bezel to help protect the screen from impacts, and the added grip ensures this thing will never slip from your fingertips. Rubberized covers keep dirt and grime away from your shield and power buttons, while still keeping them fully accessible at the same time. The case is ultra thin, adding only 0.16 inches to your phone’s overall footprint. [Purchase: $35]

Grovemade Walnut and Leather Case

Grovemade Walnut & Leather Case

The folks at Grovemade have become known around these parts for crafting some of the finest goods from all natural wood. This case falls right in line with the brand’s entire product range. Made from Oregon Claro Walnut fused with a gorgeous premium vegetable-tanned leather cover, this thing is a real looker. That cover is also more than just a pretty face, it doubles as a stand for watching videos and movies on the go. [Purchase: $129]

Mujjo Leather Wallet Case

Mujjo Leather Wallet Case

The thought of merging your iPhone case and wallet into one handy unit is nothing new, but the way Mujjo does it is. The case is made from the brand’s signature vegetable-tanned leather, finished off with a wax and aniline oil treatment giving the case a sophisticated soft touch and satin-line finish. The interior of the case is lined with suede, cradling your iPhone like a newborn baby. The wallet holds two to three cards (depending on thickness) and is available in your choice of black or tan. [Purchase: $41]

Incipio NGP Case

Incipio NGP Case

If we had to pick a best bang for your buck case, it would go to the NGP. The fitment is flawless, the profile is slim, and it’s affordable. What more could you ask for from an iPhone 6 case? It’s constructed from pliable Flex20 polymer designed for maximum shock absorption without stretching, tearing or fading over the long haul. The flexible wrap around design is easy to install and remove, and at just 0.3 ounces, you’ll hardly notice the soft-shell protection is there. [Purchase: $15]

Otter Box Defender Series

Otter Box Defender Series

Every year Otter Box finds itself on these “best of” iPhone case lists, and that’s for good reason. When you’re looking for a case that will live up to anything you can throw at it – this is the case you want. While there are newcomers that have done a great job contending, the reputation these guys have built is what keeps us coming back. The triple layer case features a built-in screen protector, belt-clip holster to keep your phone handy at all times, and comes in a handful of colors. The holster also doubles as a mini-stand. [Purchase: $42]

Radius V2 Titanium Case

Radius V2 Titanium Case

If you’re looking for something ultra slim that doesn’t sacrifice protection capabilities, this is the case for you. Crowned the iPhone bikini by fans, it’s constructed from strong, yet lightweight titanium. The case covers all four corners of your phone, with the X-frame across the back of the phone holding everything together. This thing takes minimalist to a whole new level. [Purchase: $79]

Apple Silicone Case

Apple Silicone Case

The folks at Apple decided they were going to get in on the action, and created a few of their own cases designed specifically for the iPhone 6. This particular one is constructed from silicone, and fits snugly to your smartphone without hindering the ability to use your volume and sleep/wake buttons. The silky soft case comes in six different bright colors, offering up something for everyone. [Purchase: $35]

JETech Bumper Cover Case

JETech Bumper Cover Case

If you’re running a little low on funds (which is completely understandable considering you just forked over a good amount of cash for that iPhone 6), this could be the case for you. Made with a PC and TPU fusion material that offers up advanced shock absorption through all 4 corners, this slim case often retails for well under 10 bucks. JETech also offers up the ability to completely customize the case along with a lifetime warranty. Can’t ask for a whole lot more. [Purchase: $7]

Hard Graft Classic HG Case

Hard Graft Classic HG Case

Founded in 2007, Hard Graft is one of our favorite designers in the accessories market. James Teal and monie.ka deliver nothing but top notch goods from their London-based factory, and the Classic HG iPhone 6 case is no exception. More than just your standard smartphone case, the Classic HG holds your mobile device along with your cards and cash, doubling as a wallet. The case is crafted from vegetable tanned Italian leather which has been treated with natural coloring made from tree bark giving it a gorgeous finish. The interior is lined with a soft, wool felt to protect your phone. While this is our favorite iPhone 6 case from HG, you really can’t go wrong with anything from these guys. [Purchase: $110]

Spigen Neo Hybrid Case

Spigen Neo Hybrid Case

Although the iPhone 6 was just recently released, Spigen (as a brand) has already garnered a ton of attention. The Neo Hybrid is our pick of the crop, but rest assured that Spigen prides itself in building nothing but the best cases on the market. This particular one sports a thermoplastic polyurethane web-patterned backplate that’s not only easy to grip, but also provides support, protection and shock resistance. The slim case comes in a metallic finish that complements the phone’s aesthetics nicely. [Purchase: $17]

FYY Magnetic Ultra Slim Smart Cover Case

FYY Magnetic Ultra Slim Smart Cover Case

It’s a mouthful, but it does deliver. Another bang for your buck offering, we’ve seen this case be sold for about $7 during the holiday season. The case is constructed from PU leather and features a no-scratch microfiber interior. The lightweight case has been outfitted with magnetic strips to help it stay closed on the go. The selling point for FYY’s offering is its adjustable stand, which serves nicely during your on the go YouTube binges. [Purchase: $7]

Q Card Wallet Case

Q Card Wallet Case

We’ve covered a few wallet cases for your iPhone 6 already, and while they are solid options, they don’t offer the slim design profile of the Q Card Case. This case somehow manages to stash up to 3 credit cards, plus cash. The durable frame will protect it from dings and drops, while the lay-flat screen guard keeps your screen from getting scratched up. The case is crafted from an exclusive patented soft-touch rubber paired with premium fabric on the backplate. [Purchase: $32]

New Trent Trentium Case

New Trent Trentium Case

Water resistant, dirt proof, and shock proof – the Trentium has everything you need to keep your iPhone 6 in tact. The two-piece case features a TPU shell mated to a polycarbonate cover that wraps snugly around your smartphone. Even though it’s built like a tank, the case is quite slim, adding an extra 3mm to the overall profile. Bulky is a fine line to walk, and we think the Trentium does a fine job at walking that line. It’s available in three interchangeable colors including black, silver, and our personal favorite – gold. [Purchase: $22]

Tech21 D30 Classic Frame

Tech21 D30 Classic Frame

For those of you not familiar with D30, its an impact resistant material found in everything from sportswear to military clothing, and Tech21 is bringing this resilient substance to the world of iPhone cases. The case doesn’t add much bulk, and with it’s transparent backing you can still showcase that gorgeous gold backplate you opted for. The case keeps full access to all your ports and function buttons, and thanks to the military-grade impact D30, will protect your phone for years to come. [Purcahse: $33]

Adopted Saddle Leather Wrap Case

Adopted Saddle Leather Wrap Case

The New York based crew at Adopted teamed up with none other than electronic retail giant Best Buy to create an exclusive case, and it’s gorgeous. If plastic shells don’t tickle your fancy, the high quality leather construction used on the backing of this case certainly will. The case is available in saddle brown and saddle olive, both of which do a great job at blending rugged and elegant elements into one offering. [Purchase: $39]

Pelican ProGrear Voyager Case

Pelican ProGrear Voyager Case

They don’t call these cases the “self-defense for phones” for no reason. Outfitted with the same product DNA found in equipment used by both the armed forces and first responders, Pelican makes some of the most rugged, durable products around – and these fall right in line. The slim design will fit in your pocket nicely, and the soft-touch over mold ensures you’ll always have a firm grip. Constructed from impact absorbing TPR and PUB inside a rigid polycarbonate shell, the Voyager is tested to military specifications to survive multiple drops. It also comes with a holster complete with swiveling belt clip, and that all important kickstand for watching your favorite flicks. As with many of the other options on the list, it also includes a scratch resistant coated screen protector. There is just one caveat – it’s only offered through ATT. [Purchase: $60]

HEX Camouflage Focus Case

HEX Camouflage Focus Case

We couldn’t make our way through an entire list of the best iPhone 6 cases without including a single camo option. Founded by Dan Maravilla and Trent Valladares, HEX is an up and coming brand that’s been on our radar since they launched in 2010. They offer a slew of options, but this bad boy takes the cake for us. It features a custom molded phone bed wrapped in that head turning camouflage printed onto genuine leather. Of course the case also comes complete with HEX branding along the bottom of the backplate. Due to the smaller brand behind the product, these can be a bit harder to get your hands on, but we think they’re worth the pursuit. [Purchase: $39]

Apple Leather Case

Apple Leather Case

As we mentioned earlier, Apple isn’t standing by idly while third parties capitalize on this massive market. If silicone isn’t your thing, the tech giant also offers a nearly identical case (sporting that simplistic Apple branding we know and love), but using leather construction instead. The fitment is still on point, and just like its silicone brethren is available in a variety of colors. [Purchase: $45]

SwitchEasy Nude iPhone 6 Case

SwitchEasy Nude iPhone 6 Case

While we like the protection aspect of a case, we hate the fact that it ruins the aesthetic appeal Apple worked tirelessly to create. The iPhone 6 is the most beautiful iteration to date, and the Nude case is the perfect way to showcase that beauty without compromising protection. The ultra thin and featherweight PC case is made from a super strong polycarbonate material. Just how thin is this thing? It measures in at just 0.6mm and features a scratch resistant gloss coating that will keep it looking pristine well into the future. [Purchase: $25]

KS_Story v4

LUNATIK Taktik 360 Case

Our friends over at LUNATIK pride themselves on creating nothing but top notch, high quality goods. There are a lot of cases that promise protection from the inevitable, but none of them deliver quite like the TAKTIK 360. It’s a bit bulkier than our other picks, but that’s because it’s outfitted with a compression closure system, single latch closure and Corning Gorilla Glass lenses. Basically, this case is virtually indestructible. If you’re looking for a good waterproof option without the bulk, their AQUATIK is also hard to beat. [Purchase]
