An iphone needs a case as much as a sword needs a scabbard. More so, if it's a new iPhone, given their absurdly slim metal bodies, delicate, curved lines, the completely metal-and-glass construction and the oh-so-controversial bendable display.
Pricey even for an apple product, the Iphone 6 costs a hefty $399 / £690 in the UK. As the joke goes, if you fall down with your Iphone 6 in your pocket and hear a crack, you'll just be thinking, 'Lord, please let that be my leg'.
If you've splurged on an Iphone 6, do shell out a few bucks for a rugged case to keep it safe and to show it off. Because, as Bill Gates put it, at the Iphone 6 launch:
"If you are born poor, it's not your fault. But if you die poor, it's Apple's fault."
What we have for you here is a comprehensive listing of the best and most popular Iphone 6 cases out there, so that whatever happens, your Iphone stays safe from falls, dust, water, scratches and the apocalypse.
Ranging from cute to rugged to classy, these cases are a must-buy for all new iPhone owners.
So, here goes. The Top 5 best Apple Iphone 6 phone cases available on the market today (and all for under $25 or £20 UK).
The only case that comes with an ultra-clear back cover, that reveals the original colouring and design of the Iphone 6, so you don't have to tell people, 'Iphone boosh!'.
On a more serious note, this case comes with an integrated shock absorbing frame with maximised protection and an anti-scratch coating to prevent long term wear and tear.
Designed for Iphone 6, 4.7 inch, it has cutouts for speakers, camera and other functional ports. This lightweight case protects the phone without adding too much bulk and weight.
Cons include its high price, not-too-fancy looks and the lack of a screen protector. The UK version of this great clear case is the Anker which is near-identical. You can find the Anker discounted at Amazon along with the Maxboost.
Priced at $12.99, it is available in a range of colours, including cotton candy pink, jet black, moonstone blue, tiffany blue and ultra clear. Go ahead and get one of these cases discounted at Amazon now!
The vo-shield for Iphone 6, 4.7 inch, is engineered entirely from premium high end polycarbonate and anti stretch thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) that will not lose its shape.
It fits the Iphone perfectly. The vo-shield is a doubly protective case which comes with two layers of plastic. An inner layer of soft TPU and an outer casing of hard polycarbonate keep your phone scratch-free and super safe.
Ruggedness aside, this case is expensive at $15.99 dollars and recommended only if you intend to subject your iphone to heavy duty dropping and crashing. For most users, that level of ruggedness in a case is unnecessary.

Well, the Speck case is a legend already. I used to have one for my iPhone 4s and is was the best protective case I ever used for any mobile device. The Speck is a hard shell case, which is a different type to al the others we have reviewd here.
Speck as a manufacturer and brand of iPhone cases have a great endorsement, having been the only 3rd party iPhone case that Apple sold in their stores.
