The best Apple iPhone 6s cases you can buy
The iPhone 6s is no spring chicken, having launched way back in 2015. In fact, the move to 5G has numbered its days even further. However, it can still be a great music player thanks to the headphone jack, so you’ll want to keep it safe. Here are the best Apple iPhone 6s cases you can buy to do just that.
As with any six-year-old phone, it’s become tough to track down too many cases. We’ve included the best that we can find, but you may notice an iPhone 7 case here and there. Don’t worry, as the two phones share the same dimensions, the iPhone 6s just has a smaller camera.
The best iPhone 6s cases:
Editor’s note: We’ll add to this list as we find other iPhone 6s cases, and we’ll be sure to remove sold-out options.
Speck Presidio Stay Clear
Apple rolled out a solid selection of metallic finishes for the iPhone 6s, so why not show them off? The Presidio Stay Clear from Speck is completely transparent, and it’s almost completely free of branding. It’s drop-tested for up to eight feet thanks to the dual-layer Impactium construction. Speck also boasts that its iPhone 6s case should avoid discoloration thanks to a dot matrix pattern.
Spigen Ultra Hybrid
Few manufacturers offer more cases on a model-to-model basis than Spigen. The Ultra Hybrid is one of our favorites of the bunch, and you can get it completely clear or with a matte bumper. This iPhone 6s case combines a flexible TPU bumper with a stiff back panel for great protection against drops and scratches. You should even be able to apply the case in just a few seconds.

Ringke Fusion iPhone 6s case
The Ringke Fusion is a good bet if you want a MIL-STD 810G certification to go along with your transparent protection. It’s a sleek case with durable button covers, and the back panel now features a scratch-resistant coating. Ringke’s Fusion even comes with Quik Catch holes in case you want to add a lanyard or a wrist strap.

The UAG Plasma is the last transparent case on our list, and it falls into the iPhone 7 category as mentioned above. It should fit your iPhone 6s just right, the camera opening may just be a little large. You can choose from four different finishes, and the Plasma packs an impressively thick bumper on both the top and bottom to keep your phone safe from drops.
OCase iPhone 6s wallet case
Apple’s iPhone 6s won’t put too much pressure on your pocket, but sometimes it’s nice to free up space anyway. The OCase wallet offers three card slots and a cash pocket so you can leave your old wallet behind. You can choose from a few faux leather finishes, and the folio cover can fold around to double as a kickstand. OCase even throws in a free screen protector for good measure.
No matter what phone you buy, the Otterbox Defender is always a good case to consider. It’s incredibly tough, and it’s been tested far beyond the MIL-STD 810G requirements. The Defender is one of the thicker options on our list, but it offers a built-in screen protector and tough button covers to keep your ports debris-free. You can choose from black, Seacrest, and Indigo Harbor finishes.
If you’re hoping to take your iPhone 6s for a swim, then a Lifeproof case may be in order. Lifeproof takes things a step further than Otterbox and completely seals your phone from the elements. The case even uses a screw-in cover to guard your headphone jack against dust and splashes. It comes in black, Banzai, Avalanche, Sunset, and Crushed if you want to add a pop of color.
Spigen Tough Armor
The Tough Armor brings up the rear on our iPhone 6s case list, and it’s another classic Spigen offering. It combines a tough polycarbonate shell with a soft TPU bumper for maximum impact protection. You can choose from either black or gunmetal finishes, and the raised bezels should give you some peace of mind when you set your phone down.
