Treat your new phone to one of these 30 fantastic iPhone 6S Plus cases

One of the problems with the ultra-svelte iPhone 6 Plus was the risk of it bending. To to fix this, Apple has reworked the aluminum body for the iPhone 6S Plus, outfitting it with its own custom alloy to make it tougher. It also added the toughened glass from the Apple Watch Sport, but that doesn’t necessarily make it a rugged device. If you bump or drop this phone, it will likely result in scratches, scuffs, dents, or cracks. The smart move is to snag a proper case or cover. Here are a few of our favorites, from the likes of Carved, Seidio, and a host of other big-name and lesser-known companies.

Carved Traveler Wood Case ($24+)

Carved Traveler Wood Case

With a wide range of different designs engraved onto natural wood, Carved is a great place to find something stylish with real personality. The  company’s cases make use of flexible black plastic outfitted with thin button covers, good-sized port openings, and textured sides that really add grip. The wooden back panel is inlaid, and you can choose from a wide selection of plain finishes or those adorned with eye-catching artistic designs. Prices range from $24 up to $56.

Grovemade Walnut and Leather Folio Case ($140)

Grovemade Walnut and Leather Folio Case

If you want to indulge yourself and get a case with real character, then you should check out Grovemade. This folio case combines a solid walnut wood frame with a high-quality leather cover. The natural materials give every case a unique look that will age for added character. There are wooden button covers that work really well and cut-outs for your smartphone’s ports, camera, and other functions. It is quite a bulky case, meaning you might need an adapter for some accessories. You can also fold the cover back and prop your iPhone 6S Plus in landscape view. It’s quite protective, too, but keep in mind that wood and leather are easily damaged.

Tech21 Evo Mesh Sport Case ($40)

Tech 21 Evo Mesh Sport Case

This case offers a nice balance of protection and style. It’s a relatively slim shell adorned with a mesh pattern, translucent back, and a colored bumper that ensures solid drop protection from up to 6.6 feet. It also comes with generous openings for your phone’s features and functions, and there are slim button covers. It’s made from flexible TPU, so it’s easy to put on your phone, and you can get the bumper in one of five colors.

Goze Original Case ($30)

Goze Original Case

At first glance, this looks like your typical shell case, one that offers drop protection from up to 4 feet. However, it does have a couple of extra features that are worthy of note. Some cases can muffle the iPhone’s speaker, but the clever design of the Goze actually amplifies the audio output, so alerts and notifications sound louder with the case on. This is achieved by routing the sound via the small bump at the bottom through the opening on the side of the case. If you’re a germaphobe, then you’ll also be happy to know that this case is also anti-microbial.

Goze

Caseology Wavelength Case ($12)

Caseology Wavelength Case

Here’s a handsome iPhone 6S Plus case that adds grip and protection to your phone. The inner layer is made of malleable TPU, and comes with a textured wave on the back. On top of that, there’s a polycarbonate bumper in a contrasting color. The button covers are tactile and the cut-outs are fairly roomy, so the case shouldn’t interfere with everyday use of your phone. There are four different color combos to choose from, too.
