10 Best Designer iPhone 6s Cases

Designer iPhone 6s cases

Once you have your iPhone 6s in hand, the next step is to buy a phone case. These are necessary to keep the iPhone from getting damaged during everyday use. Not all iPhone cases are equal—some are better than others, rather more importantly, better looking than others.

If you are on the lookout for a great iPhone 6s case, you would want to get the splashiest and most luxurious one.

Designer accessories for Apple products are becoming more and more common these days. This is partly due to the fact that Apple styles itself as a lifestyle company, instead being just a tech one.

Apple products have been on runways and Vogue. So it isn’t that surprising when the iPhone 6s was released, a string of designer cases followed.

Here are the 10 best of luxury iPhone 6s cases:

1. SpeckCandyshell — Inked Jonathan Adler Case
