Seidio's DILEX Pro case is an integrated two piece case for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. One of its features is a built-in metal kickstand. It can be purchased alone or bundled with a very nice plastic clip-in belt holster. Notable is the soft texture back and a great grip and feel.
Eight is the most unique iPhone accessory I've seen, and it's the most beautiful. Designed by Slovakian company Stark, Eight is a wooden acoustic amplifier/dock for your iPhone 5/5s/6. With the addition of the included Lightning cable, it's also a charging dock. It's hand crafted, made of gorgeous wood, is cleverly designed, feels amazing (seriously), and it sounds OK.
The Q Card Case from CM4, Inc. provides a place for up to three credit cards and a bill or two while providing good protection for the back of the iPhone 6. However, the external look bothered this reviewer.
Griffin’s Survivor All-Terrain cases for the iPhone 6 and 6 plus have all the expected features of a high-protection product. Both cases support the ability to use the fingerprint scan option, Touch ID, through the protective cover. Best of all, the iPhone is easy to insert or remove.
The Parrot AR Drone is a high-tech, ultra lightweight, remote-controlled quadricopter (helicopter with four rotors). Now an RC quadricopter is pretty cool, but one that streams HD video from its camera to your iPad, iPhone, or Android device in real time, could be very, very cool. I’ve dreamed about owning for one for years, but only found the courage last month to plunk down $299 for the latest and greatest model, the Parrot AR Drone 2.0 Elite Edition.
The OtterBox Symmetry case for the iPhone 6/6 Plus is in the middle of the spectrum of protection. It affords more cushioning than clear, thin polycarbonate cases, but not the ultimate protection of the OtterBox Defender. The style and materials are first-class. It's availble now in gorgeous two-tone colors with spiffy patterns coming later.
The new Waterfield Spinn pouch case for the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus is made of full grain leather, features an ultrasuede lining and comes in three rustic colors. Notable is the option to have it custom built for a bare iPhone or one with a very slim or Apple case. A belt loop is optional.
Some iPhone cases are designed for robust protection, but others can meet the needs of the average user in a fairly benign environment. The iLuv Vyneer for iPhone 6 (and 6 Plus) is the latter: an excellent case that affords protection with style. And it lets the color of the iPhone shine through.
There are occasions when you must have an iPhone with you, readily available, but the environment is rugged. Examples are construction, airline and military operations. In those cases, one may prefer to have the ultimate in iPhone protection: ports covered, display protected, and a multi-layer, cushioned shells. This case fills the bill.
Apple went big with its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus introduction — with the launch event and screen size. Both models are bigger than any iPhone Apple has made before, and very noticeably so. That size, however, does come with some benefits like faster processors, better cameras, and even support NFC-based mobile payment systems. Compared to the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, the new models really are a lot bigger, and for some people, the extra features may not be worth the size increase. Read on to see if the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are worth the price for you.
