Apple iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus cases
The first cases you’ll come across for the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are Apple’s own cases, which are quite pricey but rather nice. There are various options available depending on your budget and tastes. The Leather Case for iPhone 6, available in five different colours, will cost you £35, while the iPhone 6 Plus Leather Case is £39.
There’s a cheaper Silicone Case available for both new iPhones, and they come in six different, brighter colours and cost £25 or £29. However, at time of writing, estimated shipping times for these cases have already slipped to October.

Case-Mate Creatures iPhone 6 cases
We love the fun Case-Mate Creatures cases. They’re not very practical but they’re sure cute! The Panda one is among our favourites, but you’ll also find a pig (which slightly cruelly comes with a dangly egg and bacon attached to the bottom corner), a koala, a fox and a puppy. The Creatures cases are currently only available for the 4.7in iPhone 6, and not for the iPhone 6 Plus.
You can pre-order all of the new Case-Mate Creatures designs here.
Spigen Ultra Hybrid iPhone 6 Bumper Case
This iPhone 6 combines a see-through case with a coloured bumper around the edge, providing lots of protection but also allowing you to see the gorgeous design of the iPhone itself. You’ll be able to access all ports, controls, buttons and connectors so you won’t need to remove the case, and you’ll get a free screen protector to make sure you don’t scratch that new, bigger display.
You’ll find Spigen’s cases in various places around the web, but the current cheapest seems to be Amazon.co.uk
Proporta iPhone 6 Plus Bumper
The Proporta iPhone 6 Plus Bumpers cover just the edges of the iPhone 6, leaving the front and the back of your iPhone exposed, but they do help to protect the device if you drop it, and also make the iPhone rest slightly above any surface. We’d only recommend using a bumper if you really hate cases, and would advise you to get yourself a screen protector, too.

Ted Baker AW14 Collection for iPhone 6
Here’s one for the fashion-savvy. The iPhone 6 cases in the Ted Baker Autumn Winter 2014 collection feature the brand’s latest prints, and sport the Ted Baker London plaque. They’re made with polycarbonate with a soft-feel finish, and leave access to all ports, buttons and controls.
