The official iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus release date was September 19, 2014 – at least for the lucky ones.  Some of us stayed up until 3:00am ET on pre-order day to place our order, and we still have to wait until October 14 to get our new iPhone 6 Plus.  While I contemplate the unfairness of this situation, I have also given some thought to how I want to outfit my new iPhone 6 Plus.  Here are some ideas to consider if you, too, are getting a new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus.

I like to have a case on my iPhones to protect it from scratches and drops and bumps.  I am finally getting a gold iPhone, and I want to make sure I can see the metal back and sides.  I’ve decided that a clear case is the way to go.  Spigen makes a nice Ultra Hybrid Case with Air Cushion Bumper for the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus.  The cases have a flexible matte bumper along the sides and a clear hard back panel for complete protection.  You can get the bumper in clear, or in gunmetal, black, mint, gold, or metal slate colors.  The iPhone 6 case is $13.99; the iPhone 6 Plus case is $14.99 at Amazon.  My Spigen Air Cushion case is waiting for my iPhone 6 Plus to show up.


The new, bigger iPhones are probably too big for most shirt and pants pockets, so you may want a holster to clip onto your belt to keep the iPhone within reach.  eBay offers the Black Vertical Leather Belt Clip Holster for the iPhone 6 ($7.95, on left) or the PU Leather Holster Pouch Case Belt Clip for Apple iPhone 6 Plus ($6.98, right) to keep your new phone at hand.


For the ladies who prefer a wristlet to carry the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, something like this Vera Bradley Quilted Sophie Wristlet will fit your phone and still have room for your keys, ID, cash, and a couple of cards.  It will make a nice bag to take with you for a quick lunch or to run some errands.  It’s $98.00.


And because these new iPhone 6 models are bigger than any of the previous iPhones, you may find them a little awkward to hold up to your ear for phone conversations, especially the iPhone 6 Plus.  The Plantronics Voyager Edge Bluetooth Headset with Charging Case would work wonderfully as a hands-free device for making and taking phone calls.  It uses Bluetooth 4.0, so it will be easy on your phone’s battery, and its noise-cancelling design will make your calls clear and easily understood.  It comes with a charging case with a backup battery built in to keep your headset charged through long trips.  It’s $129.99.

  2. I have the Spigen case, in clear, for my iPhone 6. It does provide a little bit of cushioning to the edges of the phone, and makes the phone a lot less slippery. To get the cushioning, it is a bit thick on the sides, so makes the phone look bigger and feel bulkier. All the cutouts are in the right locations. I like how the Pwr, +vol, and -vol buttons are covered by buttons in the case that are recessed INSIDE. That makes the exterior more streamlined (no protrusions) compared to the original phone. It is a bit hard to find the buttons by feel, though. An interesting feature, at least in the clear case, is that when the LED light is on, the sides of the case glow.
