Best Cases for Your New iPhone 6s and 6s Plus

I've been on a mission to find attractive and protective iPhone 6s and 6s Plus cases. I want something that looks nice on my phone, but is protective enough to take a fall or two. I've stopped using cases that don't have a raised lip around the corners of the screen and prefer those that can be changed out easily, since I often change my iPhone case daily. 

Yes, daily. I know. Some women love shoes and purses, but for me, it's all about my iPhone case. Here are the ones that I'm using on my beautiful new Rose Gold iPhone 6s, and have also tested for use on the iPhone 6S Plus.

Incipio Octane Pure for iPhone 6s ($24.99) and 6s Plus ($29.99):

Incipio iPhone 6S Case

This protective case comes in clear to show off your 6s and 6s Plus to everyone you see, or you can choose a fun bumper color to pair it with. Of course, the Octane cases are also available in colors. The Octane line has been military drop tested and boasts a scratch-resistant finish, which is especially important for the clear cases! My favorite feature on these cases is the black ring around the camera cut out designed to optimize the color of your images and avoid glare.

Otterbox Symmetry for iPhone 6s ($39.95) and iPhone 6s Plus ($44.95):

The leader of iPhone protection has stepped it up a little and started to offer thinner and more colorful cases, and I'm loving it. Their Symmetry line is my favorite—one piece, thinner than traditional Otterbox cases, and very protective. The Symmetry line is available in solid colors or designs. 

Pelican ProGear Voyager for iPhone 6s ($50) and 6s Plus ($60.00)

Pelican Voyager Case

With its deep beveled edge to protect your screen from face-down drops and silicone covers for all of the openings, the Voyager is one of my favorite cases for taking my iPhone hiking or climbing, or even to the backyard. The included belt clip works perfectly on a backpack and keeps my phone safe and within reach. And did you know that Pelican offers a lifetime guarantee? If your case breaks, they'll replace it—free.

Speck CandyShell Clear for iPhone 6s ($34.95) and 6s Plus ($39.95):

This is one of my tried and-true go-anywhere cases. I love being able to show off my phone with a clear case, and one that resists yellowing like the CandyShell Clear is a bonus for sure. Another bonus is the slightly matte look on the back of the case caused by the material used for the inner layer. The Speck CandyShell's super slim (0.16 inches) case is the perfect mix of protection and style.

Urban Armour Gear Navigator for iPhone 6s ($34.95) and iPhone 6s Plus ($39.95):

Urban Armour Gear

Some of our family's favorite cases are from Urban Armour Gear. Their cases are tough on the outside, yet provide a soft impact-resistant material on the inside. They're not too flashy, offer military grade protection, and are super light. Available in nine colors.
