As the iPhone 6s release date nears, a retailer in the U.K. has listed new cases and bumpers for the upcoming flagship device from Apple. It is worth noting that, in addition to the Apple iPhone 6s, the tech giant will also be releasing the bigger version of the device, dubbed the iPhone 6s Plus.
The UK retailer “More” has reportedly started accepting preorders for Apple iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone 6s cases. Going by the listed cases, the images make the upcoming models look identical to the current-generation handsets iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. However, the difference comes in the form of the size, Phone Arena reported.
As it turns out, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will reportedly be 0.2 mm thicker than the predecessors. However, there is no confirmation available to ensure if the bump in the thickness of the handsets is due to the hardware requirement for Force Touch technology or because of a bigger battery unit. The additional 0.2 mm measurement apparently translates to an overall 7.1 mm thickness for the iPhone 6s, while the iPhone 6s Plus will be 7.3 mm thick.
The new case named “Duo Tough Extreme” is reportedly meant for those iPhone users who drop their handsets habitually as the new case apparently gives maximum protection to the iPhones. Meanwhile, the “Ultra Thin BumperLicious” bumpers make sure that the design elements of the iPhones are not hidden by the case.
Speaking of color choices, the iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone 6s cases will be made available in 10 different hues. The "Duo Tough Extreme" case is priced at $31.20.
The Ultra Thin BumperLicious bumper, on the other hand, can be purchased in Crystal Clear hue and also in six transparent hues. The case is apparently 0.7 mm thick and can be purchased for $23.40.
The rtetailer did not list any case for the rumored Apple iPhone 6c, making Phone Arena speculate that it is safe to assume that the possibility of a 4.0-inch iPhone may not be true.
