Choosing A Case For the Apple iPhone 6s and 6s Plus
With the newest models being recently released, the question has arisen: Will my current Apple iPhone 6 case fit on the new 6s or 6s Plus? A couple of factors go into answering that question. Each model is only slightly larger than the earlier model, so it may fit okay, however a case designed for the 6s or 6s Plus will provide a more comfortable fit overall.
Some manufacturers like Speck are making it very clear that their Apple iPhone 6 or 6 Plus covers will indeed fit the new 6s and 6s Plus phones. Most retailers will market cell phone cases as fitting both the 6 and 6s or 6 Plus and 6s Plus, but it is up to you to do your research before making a final decision. Even if the manufacturer claims that their cases will fit both the earlier and newer models, a very important consideration to take into account is the cell phone case’s material.
The main difference in the Apple iPhone 6 and the 6s is the size, but depending on the case material, this may not be an issue at all. The newer Apple iPhone 6s is bigger, but barely. It is literally only fractions of a millimeter larger than the iPhone 6. The same is true with the Apple iPhone 6s Plus; it is larger than the iPhone 6 Plus, but only by fractions of a millimeter. For a soft, flexible or elastic material like silicone or leather, this small of size difference should not be an issue. However, if you have a hard shell snap-on case that it designed to fit perfectly to your Apple iPhone 6; it may not fit right on the newer 6s.
Basically, it depends on the particular case on whether or not it will fit on both the 6 and 6s. Cases made by the right manufacturer with the right materials may smoothly transition from your Apple iPhone 6 to 6s. For the most comfortable fit, choose a cell phone case designed specifically for your Apple iPhone 6s or 6s Plus. A small amount of money spent on protection early on can save you hundreds of dollars later.
