Apple iPhone Cases teaser 001

Considering the amount of people who have asked us if their cases will be compatible with the new phones, it’s worth underscoring that Apple’s own case lineup for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will indeed fit the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, and vice versa.

As iDownloadBlog reader Adam Baligian observed on Twitter, Apple’s own iPhone 6s Accessories webpage states that existing cases “fit snugly and your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6 still feels incredibly slim,” even with the case on.

Both sizes of the Leather Case and Silicon Case series are confirmed as being compatible with the latest and previous-generation iPhones.

The Leather Case for iPhone 6/6s costs $45 and the Leather Case for iPhone 6 Plus/6s Plus is a $49 value.  The leather case lineup is available in Midnight Blue, Saddle Brown, Rose Gray, Brown and Black.

The Silicon Case for iPhone 6/6s is priced at $35 while the Silicon Case for iPhone 6 Plus/6s Plus is priced at $39. These cases come in White, Charcoal Gray, Stone, Antique White, Blue, Turquoise, Midnight Blue, Lavender, Pink, Orange and Red finishes.

The Leather Case ships in five to seven business days and the Silicon Case is listed with a shipping time of 1-3 business days. The Leather Case and the Silicon Case will be available for in-store pickup soon, according to the Apple Online Store.

Accessory maker Spigen confirmed yesterday that its existing iPhone 6 cases will fit the new phones. Other case makers have made similar confirmations, like Speck whose old iPhone 6/6 Plus cases will fit the new iPhone 6s/6s Plus, and vice versa.

Though the vast majority of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus cases will fit the new phones, those that are totally rigid might not as trim-fitting cases have much tighter tolerances so they either won’t fit or will bulge.

    This is a nice effort. I have the Apple leather case and I gotta tell you how much I like it. For the past year I have tried many out there, and it has felt the best option by a long shot. Even though I don’t like the cut on the bottom, its grip and look are really good.

      The bottom cutout is exactly why I don’t get them from Apple… if the bottom was covered, I definitely would. I don’t get why cases do that – they are there to protect the phone – why leave a whole side exposed??? Maybe too expensive to make the cutouts??? Either way, I need the entire phone’s 4 sides covered to buy a case. That’s just me…

      • Jason Baroni

        They actually make that for over sized accessories like headphones and charging cables, what to me is no excuse. I hate this, but the struggle is real. With these color options and a case designed like the 5s’ case leather layout it would be the perfect . But trust me, go for this leather case. Even with the bottom cut, it’s amazing and worth every penny.

        The struggle is real indeed! Hahaha!

        The struggle is never ending

        Tough, bro

    People complain about the fact that Apple doesn’t change the physical dimensions on each iteration (how many times have we heard “But it looks the same as the last one”?). Personally, I love that cases of previous generations still fit and that there’s a whole range of accessories to still choose from on each S model.

      ‘how many times have we heard “But it looks the same as the last one”?’

      Um… never? Why would anyone care about something dumb like that?

      • diggitydang

        Are we saying the same thing??? I read comments a lot, saying that it looks exactly like the last one. Samsung even did a whole campaign around it. Anyway, sounds like we both agree that it’s a useless argument.

        lol android fanboys that don’t understand the “S” model thing

  • Monttez Shackelford

    I think it is great that the phone cases from the older models phone will fit the newer models. I like how they kept the same dimensions for the phones! If we are spending so much one the phone, the least they could do would let us be able to use the same cases in which they did! hahah.

    • Giovanni

      The dimensions aren’t the same but its not much of a difference to use cases with different dimensions.

  • Malcolm Hall

    Christian, might be worth mentioning the reason for all this is the 6s is thicker

  • Matthew Davies

    I have a Spigen Tough Armor for the iPhone 6. Can I use the same case on the 6S? This is the only place I have seen them mentioned.
