I just pre-ordered my iPhone 6 Plus and I’m really excited to get it. At the same time I’m not really looking forward to getting a case for it (despite all the false hoopla surrounding bend gate).
The reason why is that I hate to cover up the gorgeous design and engineering that makes the iPhone so great to look at and hold. It seems like a near-tradgedy for a designer like myself.
And yet I know that I need to protect my investment. iPhones aren’t exactly cheap, after all. In fact, they’re nearly as expensive as a MacBook Air when unsubsidized (not partially paid for by your cell phone carrier).
The bottom line is this: I do feel like I should stick a case on my iPhone, so what case adds the least bulk or is most aesthetically pleasing?
I’ve put together a collection of 10 iPhone 6 and 6 Plus cases for you to check out, but I’ve picked three to get you started here.
Official Apple 6 Cases
I know, how boring right? Well, not exactly. Apple crafted a great phone and they have also designed a couple beautiful cases to go along with it. The official cases come in two varieties: leather and plastic. Buy
i-Blason Clear Case
Want the beauty of your iPhone to shine through in almost all of it’s natural glory? Consider a clear case that this one from i-Blason—the price is definitely on the cheap side if that’s what you’re going for. Buy
A good old standby, the Otterbox Defender has been protecting iPhones for years now. I’ll tell you right now, it’s not the prettiest case on the block. This thing’s all about utility. But hey, if you’re life literally revolves around your phone… maybe you should care less about looks and more about keeping it in perfect working order. Buy
