The bigger they come, the harder they fall: Our 35 favorite iPhone 6 Plus cases

The bigger they come, the harder they fall. Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus sports a 5.5-inch display and that rounded body looks potentially slippery to us. It’s a slim device and even with the promise of “ion-strengthened” glass we can already hear the sound of cracking displays as they hit the sidewalk. Why take the chance? Peruse the iPhone 6 Plus cases that are flooding onto the market and get the style and protection you need.

Nodus Access Case 2 ($70)

Nodus Access Case

This successor to the Access Case maintains the same stylish appeal as the original, but now comes in more colors and with some small changes to the overall design. The Access Case 2 is made using elegant, vegetable-tanned, Italian leather that’s also water-resistant, and features a rubber pad on the inside that’s covered with suction cups so you’re iPhone will stay in place. Magnetic shielding protects the device from outside interference, while the soft microfiber lining keeps it safe and residue-free. An inner pocket also holds credits cards or your driver’s license. The Access Case 2 has two cover variants, too, for people who like cases that open horizontally or vertically.

Verus Layered Dandy ($20+)

Verus_Dandy_iPhone_6_Plus_2

The Layered Dandy series of cases from Verus is meant to provide storage and protection. Each case is designed to fit snugly on the iPhone 6 Plus, which prevents your phone from shaking inside the case during use or when it’s dropped. Being a wallet case also means that it features a flip cover, as well as three card slots and a money sleeve that’s designed to hold your credit cards. And to keep the cover from opening unexpectedly, it even comes equipped with a magnetic fastener. The case also has a leather texture to it, making it soft to the touch and a pleasure to look at.

Obliq Premium Skyline Advance ($13+)

Obliq Skyline Case

If you want style, protection, and a kickstand, Obliq has you covered on all three fronts. The metallic finish on the case gives it an elegant look, while the outer shell makes it look as rugged as ever. You can be confident in its ability to protect your device, too. Protection extends to the inside of the case, as well as the outer bumper, both of which provide shock-absorption. But if your iPhone does fall, the front edges of the case extend outward enough to keep your phone’s display from making contact with the ground. The hidden kickstand also makes it easy to watch videos, and saves you the trouble of having to hold your phone. This case also provides extra grip for added protection while holding your device.

Cygnett Urbanwrap Case ($25)

Cygnett Urbanwrap Case

This stylish, synthetic leather case looks and feels like the real thing. A lot of phone cases sport cut-outs so the buttons are still easy to press and get to, but the Urbanwrap opts for button covers, and does so without interfering with their functionality. Cygnett’s case is perfect for iPhone owners who want to wrap their device in a seamless, leather-esque design. It also provides a soft feel both inside and out. It’s not rugged, but you can expect it to provide basic protection from small bumps and falls.

Mophie Juice Pack H2PRO ($130)

Mophie Juice Pack H2Pro

While the original Juice Pack provided great protection and supplied more than 14.5 hours of extra battery life, the Juice Pack H2Pro outdoes its predecessor by giving the iPhone 6 Plus up to 70 percent more battery life and better protection. The improvement comes courtesy of the case’s anti-scratch screen protector and, for the first time, waterproof protection. Mophie’s battery pack case now protects your iPhone from drops, dirt, and water, while still allowing you to utilize every feature on your device. The case includes an LED indicator and integrated power button, the latter of which lets you to choose when to charge your phone.
