Apple iPhone 6s Leather Case

If you've just bought an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6s it's worth investing in a case to protect your smartphone from bumps and scratches. Here, we round up the best iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s cases we've seen. If you have one of the larger models, take a look at our round-up of the best iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6s Plus cases.

Note that there is just a fraction of a millimetre difference in the dimensions of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s, so the cases in our round-up should fit both models. Even so, it's worth double-checking before you buy.

Apple offers its own cases for the iPhone 6 and 6s. The first option is the Leather Case. It comes in black, brown, blue and red, and costs £45 / $45.

It's lightweight and adds virtually no bulk to the iPhone, but you don't get complete device protection because the bottom of the iPhone remains exposed to give full access to the microphone and speaker. The screen is protected by the lip of the case, but we'd advise using a screen protector in addition.

Apple iPhone 6s Silicone Case

Apple's second case for the iPhone 6 and 6s is the Silicone Case, which comes in black, white, pink, blue, green and red, and costs £35 / US$35.

It's pretty similar in design to the Leather Case, so it depends which material and colour you prefer as to which one you might go for. 

Apple iPhone 6s Smart Battery Case

Apple has recently introduced a new type of case for its iPhone 6 and 6s with a built-in battery. It's pricey, at £99/US$99 from Apple's store, but you sometimes can find it for a bit less on Amazon.

However, should you wish to buy the Smart Battery Case, Apple says it will provide increased talk time of up to 25 hours, internet use up to 18 hours, and even longer audio and video playback.

Apple's Smart Battery Case has a soft microfibre interior lining to protect your iPhone, with a hinge design that makes it easy to attach the case. The exterior is soft-touch, and should feel great in the hand.

The Smart Battery Case charges over a Lightning cable, and works with the iPhone Lightning Dock also. It comes in Charcoal Grey or White.

X-Doria Defense Lux

These smart looking luxury cases from X-Doria look the part and protect your iPhone well at the same time. The usual line of 'military standard' protection ring true and they aren't too bulky either.

The case is drop tested to resist falls of two metres onto concrete, so unless you're Tony Hawk you should be just fine.

Native Union Clic Soft Touch Wooden Case

The Native Union Clic Wooden Cases for iPhone are stunning. Hand crafted and precision engineered from solid wood, they ooze style and sophistication.

Each has a unique grain pattern, and there are six different colours to choose from: Olive/Walnut, Marine/Cherry wood, White/Cherry, Blossom/Walnut, Coral/Cherry and Black/Walnut.

Tech21 Evo Mesh Sport Case

Tech21 make high quality tech protection, and in some instances we prefer its cases to the official Apple alternatives.

This particular model shows off the colour of your iPhone (if you pick the clear one), while the rubberised back and bumper means your iPhone is safe from knocks and drops. If paired with a screen protector, you could easily chuck it in your bag and not worry about scrapes and scratches.

Cover-Up WoodBack Real Wood Matt Black Case

For something a bit different we love Cover-Up's range of handcrafted real wood cases for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s. Available in a range of finishes, and with prices starting at £16.95 from Amazon, these snap-on cases offer a super-strong polycarbonate shell with a real-wood skin.

Given the materials, every case is unique too. Cover-Up warns that your case may differ slightly from the photograph.

Mujjo Leather Wallet Case

The most valuable thing in your pocket or handbag is not your wallet but your smartphone, so the Mujjo Leather Wallet Case for iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus combines both with a handy opening that holds two to three cards as well as your iPhone. 

It has a classy design in fine, luxury, stitched, vegetable-tanned leather, with suede-lined interior. There are the usual cutouts for ports and buttons so your iPhone remains ready to use at all times.

Mujjo has upgraded this quality case, strengthening the case with its Moulded Edge Technology, which protects the phone and increases the durability of the leather at its most fragile points.

This should extend the case’s life as it gets the rough treatment from jeans pockets and the like.

It's available in three colours: tan, black, and grey. 

Moshi SenseCover for iPhone 6 Touch Sensitive Flip Case - Steel Black

The Moshi SenseCover is reasonably pricey with an RRP of £44.95 but it looks awesome with its brushed-metal-effect design and transparent window, offers all-round protection, and even folds back to form a stand.

You can see the time and date without opening the cover and, thanks to touch-sensitivity, even answer calls - you just swipe along the strip to take the call.

Opis Mobile 6 Garde

The Opis Mobile 6 Garde is made from quality leather, and is available in four colours: Cognac (brown), two versions of goosebump-style Black (Black 2 has red stitching), and Nature (grey).

Once fitted into the case, the front magnets snap it shut making the iPhone feel snug and protected from casual knocks, bumps, scratches and drops.

During a phone call the cover can be closed for talking, and there are cutouts for the speaker and microphone.

The most interesting thing about the Opis Mobile 6 Garde case is the lop-eared design that can be pulled back to keep the camera free at any time.

There’s space to keep business cards under the phone, and it can relax into a portrait or landscape phone stand.

Olixar FlexiShield Ultra-Thin

Amazon stocks this ultra-slim transparent gel case for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s for a tiny £6.99/US$9.99 (though US shopper have an additional $13.95 in shipping fees). If you want to keep your iPhone looking as good as the day you got it, but also would prefer to look at the iPhone itself than a case that hides its beauty, this is the best compromise.

Incredibly flexible, the case is easy to take on and off, and it adds little bulk to your iPhone while offering protection from all angles. As you'd expect, holes are cut into the case for all the iPhone's essential ports and buttons.

Spigen Neo Hybrid EX

Another Spigen case, this one is specifically for the Rose Gold iPhone 6s. The Neo Hybrid Ex has metalised buttons for a premium design. The Hybrid Ex is a dual-bumper case for extra protection, with a crystal clear back and slim grip design.

Tylt Energi Power Case for iPhone 6 and 6s

The iPhone 6s is said to have battery life to match that of the iPhone 6, despite having a smaller-capacity 1,715mAh battery inside. Nevertheless, if you find you struggle to get through a full working day without running out of juice, you can double up on protection and extra power with a battery case such as the Tylt Energi.

It's a little pricey if you buy directly from Tylt, but incredibly useful. The Tylt Energi has an innovative, versatile design that features dual configurations, a protective case for slim-line protection, and a high-capacity power sleeve for on-the-go charging. With 3200mAh of extra power, you'll get a full charge and then some.

If you want to look at some other similar cases, check out our guide to the best battery cases for iPhone 6.

OtterBox Symmetry Case

Otterbox has a few colours and patterns to choose from when it comes to the Symmetry Series for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s.

Otterbox is known as the gold standard for smartphone protection and the Symmetry case certainly feels robust without turning the slim iPhone into an eighties brick.

Its dual-material construction absorbs shock and withstands drops, and its raised beveled edge keeps your touchscreen safe.

RhinoShield CrashGuard Bumper for iPhone 6/6s

Much like most bumpers, this is a band which aims to add as little bulk to your phone as possible, while providing top protection at the same time. The hard rubber with a tessellating pattern inside is designed to save your iPhone from an 11-foot drop.

Buttons are covered, but there are cutouts for everything else. The Lightning port and headphone jack aren't as accessible as Apple's own cases, but protection of the bottom edge is better, so it's a trade-off you might be willing to make.

In the box you'll find plastic protectors for both the screen and back of the phone which will prevent scratches but may not stop serious damage if the phone lands on sharp objects.

Casetify iPhone 6s collection

Casetify's fun iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S come in a huge variety of patterns and styles. You can also customize your case with your own photographs to the pre-set templates provided. Just what Johnny Ive would have wanted… not.

The pre-created designs are available to choose from for around £25/US$29.

Case-Mate Barely There

If you're looking for something a bit more subtle to protect your iPhone, the Case-Mate Barely There iPhone 6 case might be ideal.

It adds minimum bulk and weight to the iPhone 6, and aims to make sure that the design of the devices itself can shine through.

Spigen Ultra Hybrid iPhone 6 Bumper Case

We rather like the look of the Spigen Ultra Hybrid iPhone 6 Bumper case, too. It combines a see-through case with a coloured bumper around the edge that comes in black, clear, and dark grey.

iPhone 6s owners can find additional pink and teal options for £9.99/ US$24.99.

Griffin Survivor All-Terrain

Another case with the ultimate protection is the Griffin Survivor All-Terrain case for iPhone 6.

This one trumps both the WorkMate and DualPro by offering four layers of protection, including a built-in screen protector.

Nodus Access Case

Another premium option is the Nodus Access Case range for iPhone 6. The Nodus is a clever leather case that fixes the iPhone in place using a super-strong bond.

In our tests this worked just fine, despite our initial fears that the iPhone would slip out. The phone is easily removed with no residue from the bond, and can be removed and attached whenever you like. It's a neat, innovative solution that reduces the bulk you often get from phone cases.

From a style point of view the Access Case looks like a premium leather wallet, unlike the slightly cheap leather feel you get from Apple’s own iPhone 6 case. There is also a utility pocket to keep cash or credit/business/travel cards.
