So you have just forked out a sweet fortune to be the proud owner of a new iPhone 6, but now you are terrified of dropping and breaking the beautiful, fragile thing! It is a sadness that we are forced to put cases on our phones, but unless you have unlimited funds for repairs and replacements, a great case may take away from some of the iPhone 6’s beautiful aesthetic value, but it is sure to add to your overall peace of mind, and increase your comfort in using your phone for all the things it is meant to do.

CandyShell Grip Casesiphone 6 CandyShell Grip Case

Available in a multitude of colours, these covers deliver excellent protection for your new baby that still retain a great degree of sleekness and style. A bestseller for the iPhone 5, these are set to be a repeat hit for the 6, offering military grade protection for dropping, as well as raised rubber ridges on the back of the case for firmer, easier grip to ensure dropping your phone is much less likely, and making it easier to use when texting or taking pictures by taking away the worry of it slipping out of your hand.

The case features a hard exterior with a soft, shock absorbent lining which make them easy to put on and take off your phone, but wrap and hold it snugly when it is in use. The raised bezel protects the screen from slipping, sliding or scratching when the phone is placed face down on any surface. Rubberised covers shield the volume and power buttons while keeping them fully functional.

If you are looking for something a bit more stylish, check out the CandyShell inked series too, with similar features to these, but the added feature of high res graphics on each case to give them added wow factor.

Otterbox Defender Series

Now these may not be the most beautiful cases in the world, but they will serve your iPhone 6 well in keeping it nice and safe. The Defender series does try hard when it comes to design, offering a variety of patterns and colours so you can at least select your favourites, but its real value is in protection, not prettiness. It is also noteworthy that the case still displays the Apple logo on the back of the phone, so you can still display your brand of choice with pride.

The Defender cases are ultra-rugged, triple-layered affairs that are designed to cushion your prize possession from bumps, drops and knocks you may encounter in everyday life. The case has an excellent built-in screen protector that takes care protecting every inch of the display and warding off scratches, scrapes and scuffs to the screen, keeping it immaculate underneath.

The case also features a protective membrane that cradles the Touch ID to help make your iPhone 6 dust proof and keep it free of any dirt or debris that may creep in and hinder functionality. And as a slightly naff cherry on top, the Defender features a belt-clip holster which we are sure most people will not utilise for that purpose – but it does double up as a neat little mini-stand for FaceTime.
