  • Cases For Apple's iPhone 6/6 Plus to Work With New iPhone 6s Lineup


    Apple’s iPhone 6s and 6s Plus devices were released for preorder last week, but the look of the new smartphones did not change. With just minor tweaks, it was noted that cases for the original iPhone 6 and 6 Plus should fit the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus just fine. The Cupertino-based company’s official silicone and leather cases have been confirmed to fit both the iPhone 6/6s and iPhone 6s/6s Plus. This means that consumers who have ordered the new phone will not have to buy new accessories if they don’t want to.

    One thing to note however, is that even though not much has changed in terms of the phone’s look, the new iPhone 6s lineup has a few measurement differences compared to the previous lineup. The larger iPhone 6s Plus is ever so slightly taller than the 6 Plus, with the 6s Plus measuring 6.22 inches versus the 6.23 inches on the 6 Plus. The new Plus device is a tad wider as well, with the new one measuring 3.07 inches compared to the old 3.06 inches.

    The two new 6s devices are also slightly thicker, with the 6s measuring 0.28 inches and 6s Plus 0.29 inches. Apple’s older iPhone 6 was 0.27 inches thick and 6 Plus was 0.28 inches. Last but not least, this year’s lineup is also heavier than last year’s. The 5.5-inch device was 6.07 ounces previously but is now 6.77 ounces and the 4.9-inch device was 4.55 ounces previously but is now 5.04 ounces. But as you all can see, the differences in measurements are barely noticeable hence why the older cases can work with the newer phones.

    However, getting a new phone will always give us an excuse to purchase a new case. So will you be using your old one or have you already bought a new one? Share with us in the comments below.

      Well they made the internal battery's on the new devices smaller, so I wonder why the difference in size?

      I would imagine that the new display had something to do with the size....that or someone had a bad measurement day. I wonder if the same device was used to measure both the 6(+) and the 6S(+).

      I'll have to get a new case. I don't think my 5s case will fit my new 6s Plus. Haha

      I'm looking to get the glass screen protector. I wonder if it affects the 3D touch.

      Yeah. I was wondering about that as well. But being that it's just pressure sensitive, I would imagine it would be fine.

      My mom and a friend had got the HDX Glass screen protector for their 6 Plus. If it doesn't work, I'll just return mine.

      I just purchased 2 Tech Armor Ballistics Glass Screen Protectors, so I'm hoping they work on the 6s series.

      Is everyone sure that the iPhone 6 cases work with the iPhone 6s? Otterbox is making cases specifically for the 6s. If you look at the picture it in the post here all it tells me is that iPhone 6s cases are backwards compatible with the 6 but I am not so sure its the other way around.

      I ordered a case for 6s+ and went to track it. There's a notice on DHL website about the Pope Francis' visit next week (I live in Washington, DC) and many people may not receive their mail and/or packages on time.
