Skins, Cases, and Covers for the iPhone 6
For many iPhone owners, protecting their phone is an important thing. There are different protection options available for the iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, and the iPhone 6 Plus such as cases, covers, and skins. The iPhone 6 cases come in a variety of styles and colors, which allow for personalization possibilities as well as offering added protection.
Why should you protect your iPhone?
The screens of the iPhone 6, the iPhone 6s, the iPhone 6 Plus, and many other Apple products are made of glass. This means that while they are generally fairly resistant, they are susceptible to breaking if the phone is dropped or mishandled. Some form of protection, such as those provided by covers, cases, and skins, can be helpful in trying to prevent this damage from occuring.
What are cases, covers, and skins?Can both sides of a phone be protected?
All three offer protection. Here is a description of the general purpose of each type:
- A cover refers to something that protects the phone and tends to be soft.
- A case is a phone protector with a hard exterior.
- A skin offers some level of protection, but it serves more as a decorative statement.
Are there different case sizes available?
Some cases will wrap around the entire iPhone, creating protection for both the back of the phone as well as the front screen. Many cases, even if they do not have a clear layer that goes over the screen, will be raised on the sides. This means that if the phone is dropped, the screen itself will not come into contact with the surface, and therefore will be much less likely to break. Clear skins are also available, often referred to as screen protectors, and these work in a very similar way to other iPhone 6 skins. They are applied almost like a sticker and will help to keep the screen of the iPhone from shattering if it is dropped.
Cases, covers, and skins are available in a variety of sizes for every available Apple smartphone product. The iPhone 6 cases are available for the basic iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6s as well as the slightly larger size required by the iPhone 6 Plus and 6s Plus. The iPhone 6s is slightly larger than the iPhone 6, by only a millimeter or so, meaning that cases intended for the iPhone 6 will most likely fit the 6s. The Plus has larger dimensions, and therefore requires the largest cases available.
