Yesterday we looked at five of the latest cases for the iPhone 6, and now we’re back to do the same thing for the iPhone 6 Plus. Let’s get started!
5. Encase Genuine Leather Wallet Case - Brown, Black
We begin with an extraordinary budget iPhone 6 Plus that nevertheless uses genuine leather for the ultimate in-hand look and feel. The Encase Genuine Leather Wallet comes with four card pockets too, allowing you to ditch your wallet and use this instead. The Genuine Leather Wallet Case provides a good amount of protection for your iPhone 6 Plus too, thanks to the full screen coverage that a flip case provides. A magnetic clasp secures the cover when closed, completing the protective envelope.
4. Qi Charging Case - Black, Gold
If you want to take advantage of convenient wireless charging with your iPhone 6 Plus, then check out this Qi Charging Case. The case comes in black or gold, and adds the required wireless charging coil to the back of your phone. Then you’re free to place the phone on a range of Qi charging pads to easily recharge your phone without the hassle of plugs and wires. Awesome.
3. Ballistic Tough Case - Black
The Ballistic Tough Case is one of the best protective options available for the iPhone 6 Plus, with the triple-layered design proving a significant barrier to potential damage. A silicone shell with exposed Ballistic Corners receives the impact, an impact-resistant polycarbonate layer deadens it and a shock-absorbent polymer finishes the job. It’s a triple shot solution that works extremely well to prevent damage, all in a svelte and stylish textured case.
These creatively named and beautifully designed cases add artistic credibility to your iPhone 6 Plus. Each design is gorgeously rendered, from the chromatic peaks of Colourflash 3, to the geometric gradients of Billy Rays and the vibrant hues of Blurry Lines. The cases are nice inside too, with a single credit card slot and media stand functionality.
1. Thule Gauntlet Rugged Snap-on Case - White
We conclude our session today with the Thule Gauntlet, one of the coolest looking (and sounding) iPhone 6 Plus cases on the market. The broad ridges of this case intimate its powerful protection, with cushioning on the rear providing great survivability. On the front, you’ll find a prominent lip that prevents the screen from taking damage in the event of a drop. This protective yet slim case is one I’m personally very tempted by, and I’m sure you will be as well.
I hope you’ve found a likeable case among our recommendations today! If you have any questions please leave them below, or speak to us on Twitter @mobilefun. Thanks for checking out the article and have a good one!

In this article we’re going to take a look at five awesome upcoming iPhone 6 cases that are coming soon to Mobile Fun. Let’s get right into the recommendations!
Our first case is this beautiful one from Create and Case. The Book Case is adorned with your choice of two beautiful watercolour-like designs, printed using a specialised technique onto high quality leather-style material. These cases are practical too, with the flip cover providing screen protection, giving you a place to keep your cash and cards, and even turning over to form a flip cover. Whether you choose the Sunny Leo or the Warrior Owl, you’ll be delighted with this eye-catching and gorgeously rendered case.
Next up is one of the most protective cases for the iPhone 6 on the market: the Seidio OBEX. This case is so well crafted that it’s actually waterproof, allowing you to use your phone underwater or in the rain without worrying about potential damage. The case is striking too, with clean lines and a beautiful two-tone design in white or black.
The TwelveSouth SurfacePad is a gorgeous real leather case for the iPhone 6. The case is slim and well-designed, manufactured with Napa leather and fine stitching. The SurfacePad folds to serve as a landscape stand for your phone, and also includes a pair of pockets in the front cover for your cash and cards. If you’re looking for a slim and stylish case to protect your phone from day-to-day wear, then the SurfacePad should be near the top of your list. The case is available in camel (as seen above), black, red and white flavours.
The Draco Ducati is a unique case: it is made almost entirely from aluminium, it has an unusual curved shape, and it is officially licensed by the Italian motorcycle company of the same name. The combination of the shape and the material makes it feel great in your hand; solid and unbreakable. The Ducati logo will be a nice touch for motorcycle fans, and isn’t large enough to offend the eyes either. It’s a top-notch premium metal case that provides excellent drop protection without affecting accessibility. Three colour variants are available: red, gold and grey.
This special edition of the Spigen Slim Armor includes a handy credit card slot on the back. It looks completely ordinary from the outside though, so you won’t have to worry about opportunistic ne’er-do-wells. The case is a little thicker because of the storage area, but makes up for it with improved scratch and drop protection. With a range of colours (gunmetal, gold, white and mint) and a slick modern look, the Slim Armor CS is definitely a case to consider.
That’s all for now folks! Be sure to check in with us again soon, and feel free to take a look at our other great iPhone 6 articles!

Twelve South produce some of the nicest premium cases for the iPhone and iPad. We recently unveiled the SurfacePad for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and now it’s time to turn our attention to the latest Apple tablet: the iPad Air 2!
The SurfacePad for the iPad Air 2 is quite possibly even nicer looking than the iPhone 6 version, if for no other reason that we see the same winning design and materials reproduced at a much larger scale. The premium, genuine leather feels fantastic in your hand, stretching out to cover the screen of your iPad Air 2 and protect it from scratches or knocks.
This leather iPad Air 2 case is one of the thinnest available too, adding just millimetres to the thickness of your iPad Air 2. The sides of your iPad are left fully accessible, allowing your speakers to stay loud, your buttons to be easily pressed and the camera to take those surprisingly great shots. The SurfacePad is sleep/wake-compatible, so you’ll be able to open the cover to awaken the iPad and then send it slumbering again once the cover is closed. This saves you time and keeps your iPad going for longer.
The final beauteous feature of the SurfacePad is a multi-level, magnetic viewing stand. By flipping the cover to the rear of the tablet, you’ll be able to prop up the iPad Air 2 in landscape mode. That’s perfect for watching movies, surfing the web or having FaceTime chats with your family and friends. The tiny magnets that make the stand work also ensure that the cover doesn’t need to clip or adhere to your shiny tablet in order to stay securely attached.
The SurfacePad is available in four colours for the iPad Air 2. To see more information or place your pre-order for any or all, please visit the pages below:

The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is one of the most unique phones on the market, with its folded secondary display area on the right hand side of the phone. For a unique phone, you need a unique case – and that’s the UAG Maverick.
This Galaxy Note Edge case comes with a carefully crafted design that allows you to retain full access to the folded secondary display, while still protecting the edges of the Note Edge from damage. The clear design is also nice here, allowing you to see the full extend of the Note Edge’s industrial design.
The strong TPU shell and soft silicone core, backed with an embossed metal insert and realistic Torx screws, are more than capable of preventing damage from scratches and knocks. In fact, the UAG Maverick is military drop-tested, and meets the MIL-STD 810G-516.6 standard.
The UAG Maverick is a brilliant protective that is available for pre-order now, and will be in stock at Mobile Fun soon. For more information, to be alerted of stock availability or to place your order, please visit the product page linked below:

Thermodo is a tiny but awesome dongle that sends highly accurate temperature readings to your Android or iPhone.
So how does it work? Well, you plug the Thermodo dongle into your phone’s headphone port. The app sends an audio signal to the dongle, the dongle attenuates the signal amplitude using your phone’s microphone, and then the app calculates the correct temperature. It sounds complicated, but all you need to do is launch the app. The entire process is silent and near-instant, granting you easy access to the temperature whenever you want to see it.
When you’re not using the Thermodo, you can keep it on your keyring with the included ring and holster, so your headphone port is free to be used. Even when wrapped in its tiny holster, Thermodo is less than an inch long and weighs almost nothing.
The Thermodo is a passive sensor, meaning it uses no power and doesn’t require an internet connection to work. It’s a massive improvement over relying on an internet weather service, which is delayed and only vaguely in the same area as you are. Instead, you get immediate and accurate results on demand – awesome.
The Thermodo was a massive Kickstarter success, raising ten times their $35,000 goal, so we hope you’re equally excited. We’re looking forward to getting the Thermodo in stock as soon as possible. To see more information or place your pre-order, please visit the product page linked below!
