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.
