    So right after the Hey Siri Keynote, I noticed that some of the new 6s Case colors were available from the Apple Online Store, So ordered an orange silicone one and it was just delivered via UPS.

    Text on the back says "Compatible with iPhone 6 and 6s"

    Here's a few pics compared against a (slightly dirty) Product Red smart case on my iPad mini 2.

    Does it seem slightly looser than the cases for just the 6? Do you think they're probably the exact same size?

    They're exactly the same size. I just got my iPhone 6S White Silicone case (the one with the black Apple logo) and I can't tell it apart from my green silicone case.

    Very nice ! I think I could see my Rose Gold with this combo combine. I think it will look nice and with black too.

    Is the silicone case thicker than the leather? If I got a silicone instead of leather for my 6s+ would it be bulkier?

    Yes, on many colors it is darker and on the white case it is actually black. Last year it was no different in color.

    Would love to see the charcoal gray. I have to wait for the 6 plus, but I did recently get the black silicone which does have a gray tint to it. Wondering how they compare (and if the Apple on the rear is as pronounced).

    Going off the pictures, the white definitely has a black Apple logo though vs last year it was the same color as the rest of the case.

    I have the black silicone and ordered the new charcoal gray one even though I realize I could use my old one. I too am interested to see if it's a different color or just a new, fancier name.

    I'm comparing the 6s Silicone to the 6 Leather, and it seems as though the silicone is a tiny bit thicker (please let's not make this another thread like the "weight" one). The thickness difference is imperceptible to me. I'm also noticing that the inner microfiber lining on the 6s Silicone goes up and around the sides towards the edge of the curved parts of the case, equivalent to where the metal back meets the glass on the iPhone 6.

    I had been wondering about these cases and wondering if they are in fact the same ones for the 6 just with new colors. Kind of strange how they changed the colors on the Leather versions and got rid of the RED one.

    My iPhone case for years has been an Otterbox Defender and for the first time in a long time, I'm not going to be using one when I get my 6s next week. The apple cases are my front runner choices for a case and since I wont have a belt clip anymore, the phone will have to go in my pocket. How is the tackiness on these silicone cases? It it ok for pocket use?

    The texture is very similar to many other silicone products. I liken it to a stiffer version of an OXO silicone drying mat. When it's on the phone, it feels like one of those Staedtler Mars plastic erasers.

    As far as pocket use, it does not "stick" to the fabric like some other cases I've used before–where it's difficult to remove. It's a little grippier than my iPhone 6 leather case though, which is to be expected.

    Would you mind sharing some pictures of it? My wife is interested in the lavender color but she fears it may be a little too grayish.

    i like the silicon cases, but you can have it in your pocket for a couple of minutes, pull it out and its covered in lint.

    Haven't seen any lint picked up after a few days of usage. Believe Apple either updated the cases or the midnight blue was just the way to go

    SS case - only way to go thanks

    I wonder how the new speck case compares to this Maxboost case, anyone?

    Both are 100% clear with TPU sides and polycarbonate back panels. The prices are drastically different though... $34.95 vs. $8.99.
