    I have both the Apple Leather Case and Magpul Field case for my iPhone 6. When I get the new iPhone 6s, will my cases fit on the new phone?

    Apple's site says the 6s is 7.1mm thick compared to the 6.9mm 6.

    They're selling new leather cases (in the new colors) that are stated to fit the 6s and the 6. Will the OLD leather cases also fit both? I can't find the old case model number on the Apple site anymore to check.

    From Apple's website you can see the 6s case is compatible with the 6.

    So it's a matter of comparing the new (?) dimensions to see if your older case is compatible too.

    All of our cases will fit just fine. One of the nice things about Apple is that their form factor stays virtually the same from initial model to S version. The 4 to 4s had a pretty big swing on the mute switch, but since then, no prob :)

    You would think that something like an otter box that can be dropped 2 stories and still keep the phone intact would need to be designed with more precision, but 1mm wider and 2mm thicker of whatever apparently won't make a difference.

    No, it's 0.1mm wider and 0.2mm thicker. This is a tiny increase, like the width of a human hair.

    iPhone users, myself included, can be meticulous. I would guess there will be many people who will be able to detect the difference in fit. The question is: are most manufacturers (Apple included) selling the same cases they made for the 6, which might make them too tight on the 6s, or are they being slightly tweaked for the 6s so that the 6 will be just a hair (literally) loose?

    Anyone know if the Lifeproof cases for the 6 will fit on the 6s? I'm looking to upgrade, but need to know if I'm going to have to buy a new case.

    It probably just depends on the type of case. I'm skeptical about Speck cases because they fit so darn tightly to begin with. But for rubberized cases, there's probably enough flexibility to fit. I think we'll see more issues than people expect. I'm just going to wait a week or after I get mine before I buy any cases.

    And ironically Speck was the one company stating their cases would be supported. But I have never used one, so no opinion on the subject.

    (as a sidenote, Incipio and UAG state their cases are compatible as well)

    I spoke to a Apple representative and they informed me my Apple silicon case will fit a new 6S. I too was weary at first due to the slight increase in dimensions. Glad to know I don't need to drop another $40 on a case.

    Almost all iPhone 6 cases will fit the iPhone 6s

    Magpul said their cases won't fit the new models, but I'm using a field case on my 6S+ and it fits perfectly like a glove. No need to worry.
