    Any ideas when(if) Magpul will be releasing the field case for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus? I recall from the past that Magpul takes a while to release a case for a newly released device, at least a month?

    I don't think anyone outside Mapgul knows that. It took a while for the 5s cases. Hopefully it doesn't take too long for 6/6+ cases.

    There was a post somewhere where they were talking to a Magpul rep and he said that the case was under design right now. They said that they don't have the plugs to get the device before it drops so they can start designing the case ahead of time. Didn't give an eta but it is under production.

    ^Correct. Go to ar15.com and to the Industry section. Click on Magpul and there is a thread there about the cases.

    How long after iPhone 5 was released did Magpul roll out the field case? At least a month?

    Oh wow! It didn't seem that long, but I got my first field case just after the iPhone 5S was released, so it was already out for sometime.

    They normally take a few months - I personally can't wait - one of the best bangs for the buck and a great case.

    Hope they come out with an Executive Field case for the 6 as well. It took them a while for them to come out with it for the 5, but it's really a great case; in fact, it's still my favorite case of all time.

    One of my favorite cases of all time too, I think they will do so well if they would extend the cases for other Manufacturers as well, They have the right people putting that case together.

    Given the irrational behavior of some of their fans Magpul never comments of development and speculative release dates. However, on M4Carbine.net where the crowd is a little more "normal," staff with Magpul replied and from the tone of the post, I think we'll be seeing these cases sooner rather than later. Just a little bump to share some hope.

    I used a Magpul field case for the entire life (2 years) of my iPhone 5 and the phone was in perfect shape when I sold it.

    I dropped it dozens of times and never any damage.

    Cant wait to get this case for my iPhone 6!

    Big Magpul fan here too. Had one on my 4 and 5. Absolutely best bang for buck I've found. I ordered a cheap case from Monoprice until Field case is available. What are y'all doing until then?

    Yes! My buddy had a ton of Magpul field cases for the iPhone 4....promised me a free one but by the time he found the time to find em and get me one I had already upgraded from my iPhone 4 :/ I like to make a "tactical statement" in a small way no matter what I'm doing :D

    EDIT: I didn't realize they were so popular....only people I see with them or that know about them in person are Military/Law Enforcement/Gun owners or family of one of those....Side note: The case totally looks cool next to my Glock, walther tactical knife, and other gear!

    Yea I issue them as the standard case to all the North America staff. Droids and iPhones. The users here love them.
