Apple announced its iPhone 6 back in September, featuring a beautiful aluminium body, super slim design and Apple’s latest A8 processor under the hood.
It’s a good looking device and probably one that you’d rather not cover with a case, but a little bit of protection is always a good idea to make sure it stays looking good so we have rounded up some great iPhone 6 cases to consider.
Whether you are opting for Apple’s very own range of cases, or going for something a little more bespoke from a third party, we’ve detailed some of the best cases available, and certainly ones that will make you stand out from the crowd. Whether you like wood, plastic, leather, or metal, floral or plain, there should be something here to make sure your iPhone stays safe and protected.
Apple’s official cases for the iPhone 6 come in a leather option and a silicone option. Both offer a colour-matched microfibre interior, slim build and cut out sections to give you easy access to all the necessary controls.
The leather case comes in five colours comprising black, light pink, brown, blue and red, while the silicone alternative is offered in black, bright blue, bright pink, bright green, white and red.
PRICE: From £35 at the Apple Store.

PRICE: From £26.18 at Etsy.com
