Cases for Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus begin arriving to customers

September 16, 2014

Last Friday, I placed orders online for an iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus as well as Apple leather cases for each.

Conceptually, I know there is a size difference between the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus. Nonetheless, I was very surprised just how different the sizes are when the cases are put side by side.

Also take note of the difference between the iPhone 6 Plus and the LG G3 — keeping in mind that they both have a 5.5-inch screen.


Here’s the iPhone 6 case inside the one for the iPhone 6 Plus:


If you haven’t yet ordered an Apple leather or silicone case for your new iPhone, you may be out of luck. It looks like new shipments won’t be arriving until October:
