Got a new iPhone 6s? Need a case? Not all iPhone 6 cases will fit..we’ll tell you which ones!
Which iPhone 6 case works with the iPhone 6s?
With the iPhone 6s being released, will most iPhone 6 cases work with it? The dimensions of the iPhone 6s are slightly thicker and for most cases, this won’t matter much. However, some of the slimmer, tighter fitting and waterproof cases, the extra thickness of the iPhone will pose a problem.
As a general rule of thumb, I would stay away from any waterproof iPhone 6 case (if you have the 6s). Waterproof cases are designed to fit the iPhone tightly (we discovered that as we watched our LifeProof Nuud fail with a glass screen protector on it) and any change in the thickness of the iPhone will increase the chances of a failure.
So for the following cases, make sure you’re getting the iPhone 6s version of the case, not the 6:
Slim iPhone 6 cases that didn’t:
Incipio Octane – Power button is tight
Spigen Thin Fit – Bottom edges don’t fit tightly
Caudabe Veil – iPhone 6s Plus doesn’t fit along the bottom corners
Griffin Survivor Slim – Sleeve doesn’t sit flush on iPhone
Spigen Tough Armor – Fits, but very little clearance between iPhone and flat surface
Incipio DualPro – Slight gap between TPU sleeve and outer shell
Seidio Tetra – Buttons are very tight
Pegacasa Maestro – Doesn’t fit at all
Seidio Dilex – Power button doesn’t work
SupCase Unicorn Beetle Pro – Too tight…buttons sometimes don’t work
Zero Lemon Protector – Couldn’t snap the front/back together
Trident Kraken – Back doesn’t cover
Waterproof iPhone 6 cases that didn’t fit:
LifeProof Nuud – Case didn’t fit at all
LifeProof Fre Power – Fits but everything is REALLY tight
LifeProof Fre – Fits but bottom corner has a tiny gap
Mophie H2Pro – Tight but fits better than the LifeProof Fre Power
Seidio Obex – Fits tightly but everything snaps together, home button almost doesn’t work
