The Veil

Some people take such good care of their mobile devices that, for the most part, they don’t really need any protection. Those people tend to prefer their iPhone 6 to be completely uncovered to show off Apple’s beautiful design.

But, there is always the slightest chance that the soft aluminum of the iPhone 6 could be exposed to minor scuffs and scratches, providing a need for the thinnest of protection. The Veil fits into this ultra thin market with its ultra thinnest design.

So far, the thinnest case that I’ve found in my research measures just 0.35mm, although I’ve heard rumors that there is a 0.3mm one on the market, but I’ve yet to confirm that. The Veil is one of those cases that do indeed boast a 0.35mm skin.

It is made from polypropylene, which is hard enough to snap tightly into place around your iPhone 6, but flexible enough to make it easy to put on.

Although it can proudly claim to be one of the thinnest iPhone 6 cases, it does also provide protection around the protruding camera lens. A ridge around the back-facing camera and flash measures .7mm thick to keep your lens rim protected when lying flat.

The volume buttons, mute switch, and Sleep/Wake button all have cutaways so you can easily access your iPhone 6 controls. The bottom of the case is exposed, except for the corners, to allow unfettered use of the speakers and ports.

The Veil comes in Wisp Black or Blue and is available on Amazon for $15. There is also a version available for the iPhone 6 Plus in Wisp Black or Frost for $16.
