The SwitchEasy AirMask is one of the thinnest iPhone 6 / 6 Plus cases on the market, measuring just 0.35 millimetres thick. Surprisingly for a case this thin, the SwitchEasy AirMask still provides excellent scratch protection and reasonable impact protection too. Let’s take a closer look at this svelte iPhone 6 case.
The AirMask provides all-around protection, covering the front, back and sides of your iPhone. The case is made from a specially formulated polymer, combined with a strong carbonate. This increases your phone’s durability substantially, preventing scratches and dents that are easily accrued over time without a case.
The AirMask even includes a 3H built-in screen protector, allowing your screen to resist day-to-day scratches from keys and coins. This is great if you keep your iPhone 6 in your pocket or in the bottom of your bag, and because the case is so slim you’ll still easily be able to fit it.
This slim iPhone 6 case is also designed to complement the colour of your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, with three colour options for each phone that match Apple’s colour options. That includes champagne gold, silver and space grey.
The SwitchEasy AirMask is a must-have slim case for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and it’s coming soon to Mobile Fun. In fact, it’s due in stock in early February. To place an order or see current availability, please visit the product pages linked below in the color of your choice for iPhone 6:

Does the iPhone 6 have expandable storage?
Thankfully, there are workarounds that can help you temporarily access more files, or offload media on your iPhone to the cloud.
Use cloud storage
Using cloud storage is the easiest way to store additional storage to your iPhone 6. There are loads of options too, including popular services like iCloud, Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive and Google Drive. iCloud is the most integrated into your iPhone to begin with, but rivals (particularly Dropbox) offer their own advantages. Try each service and see what works for you.
Connect USB drives or SD cards using an adapter
If you need to access more files than can easily fit on your iPhone at once, then you can use a 4-in-1 Connection Kit to plug in USB drives and SD cards.
Copy unneeded media to your Mac or PC
If you have downloads, music, movies or photos on your iPhone that you don’t need, you can copy them to a Mac or PC using our Connecting your iPhone 6 to a computer guide.
Add storage using the Mophie Space Pack
The Mophie Space Pack is a cool case that includes 32GB of additional storage, accessed via the Mophie app. Unfortunately, the Mophie Space Pack is only available for the iPhone 5S and 5. However, an iPhone 6 version is planned and should be available in the months to come.

Our Mophie Juice Pack battery cases for the iPhone 6 have proved popular, so we’re extending our range to include Mophie battery cases for the iPhone 6 Plus and a more rugged option for the iPhone 6. Check out the new arrivals!
Mophie Juice Pack for iPhone 6 Plus
The Mophie Juice Pack for iPhone 6 Plus provides excellent protection and considerable extra battery life in one convenient case. You’ll get edge-to-edge protection, with a dual texture rubberised shock-resistant band that adds grip and protects against drops and scratches.
This iPhone 6 Plus battery case includes a 2600mAh portable charger, letting you recharge your iPhone from 0 to nearly 90% (given the 6 Plus’ 2915mAh capacity). This extra battery life makes it easy to last a long day, and with moderate use you’ll be able to stretch to three days between recharges. An on/off switch and four LED indicator make it easy to choose when to recharge and see how much of the battery is remaining.
For extending your battery life and keeping your iPhone 6 Plus safe, the Juice Pack is one of the best cases available.
Mophie Juice Pack Plus for iPhone 6
Our second new product is the Juice Pack Plus, a more rugged version of the standard Juice Pack Air for the iPhone 6 that provides even more battery power. The case includes a new impact-isolation system, with carefully designed internal bumpers that add extra cushioning to the edge and corners of your iPhone 6.
The Juice Pack Plus provides a massive 3300mAh of extra battery power too, giving you 180% more battery life, almost tripling the time you can use your phone between recharges!
If you’re looking for the ultimate combination of protection and power for the iPhone 6 – at the expense of a little added bulk – then the Juice Pack Plus is the ideal solution.
The Mophie Juice Packs for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are expected to arrive in February. To place a pre-order, sign up for a stock availability notice or see more information, please visit the product pages linked below:

Connecting your iPhone 6 to your TV makes it easier to play videos and play music on the biggest screen in the room. It’s also great for looking over photos, playing games and just surfing the web. In this article, we’ll explain how to connect your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus to your TV, projector or monitor.
1. Use a Lightning to HDMI adapter
The easiest option to connect your iPhone 6 to your TV is to use a Lightning to HDMI adapter. First, use an HDMI cable (sold separately) to connect the adapter and your TV. Then, connect the Lightning end of the adapter to your iPhone 6. Finally, change your TV to the correct HDMI input and your iPhone’s screen will be mirrored on your TV.
2. Use AirPlay to Apple TV
If you’d prefer a wireless approach to streaming from your iPhone 6 to your TV, then you can use the Apple TV. The Apple TV is a set top box that can mirror your iPhone’s display and run apps like Netflix and YouTube. Connect the Apple TV to your TV, turn it on, and follow the on-screen instructions to set it up and connect to your WiFi network.
On your iPhone, swipe up from the bottom of your screen to open the Control Center. Then, tap the Airplay button and select your Apple TV from the menu that appears. This will stream everything on your display to your TV. If you’d prefer to stream specific content (like a single video or song), then open that media on your phone, then tap the Airplay button (next to ‘next’ in the playback controls).
3. Use a Lightning to VGA adapter
If you’re using a projector or monitor without HDMI, then you’ll need to use a Lightning to VGA adapter to mirror your iPhone 6 to your display. Use a VGA cable (sold separately) to connect the adapter and your display. Then, connect the Lightning plug on the adapter to your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus. Finally, change your display to its VGA input and your iPhone’s screen will be mirrored on your TV.
Anything we didn’t cover?
We started with a question – “How do I connect my iPhone 6 to my TV?” Now, we’ve answered that question three ways. Is there anything we could improve in those explanations, or do you have any questions that we didn’t answer? Let us know in the comments below. We’ll try to answer your question and improve this article. Thanks for reading!

Here’s something pretty cool: a magnetic premium keyboard case for the iPad Air 2. It’s called the Zagg Rugged Book Magnetic Keyboard Case, and it’s quite a unique proposition, providing both productivity gains and impressive protection. Let’s take a closer look.
We’ll start with the Rugged Book’s protective potential. This is provided by a combination of a tough polycarbonate shell and a soft silicone cover, working together to deaden impacts, block scratches and generally protect your iPad Air 2. The significant thickness of each layer means your Air 2 will become more bulky, but it also ensures that you’ll get far better protection than you would from a thinner case.
The next part of the equation is the keyboard, which uses backlit keys to allow use at all times of day. The keys feel tactile and responsive under your fingers, with sufficient key travel and key spacing to allow you to write quickly and accurately. The feel is very similar to a high-end laptop keyboard, and you’ll definitely notice a boost in productivity when you’re typing on this instead of the software keyboard. That boost will be a long-lasting one too, thanks to an epic battery life of over two years between recharges.
The overall effect is that of an armoured ultra-rugged laptop, with the Rugged Book propping up the display at a convenient angle when the Air 2 is in use, and then folding together to protect the screen when you’re on the move. An incredible magnetic hinge ensures that you can keep your Air 2 at a convenient angle at all times, and that the case closes securely too. As the connection is magnetic, you can also separate the two pieces quickly and easily when needed.
The Zagg Rugged Book Keyboard Case really is something, huh? For more information or to place your pre-order of this impressive iPad Air 2 case, please check out the product page linked below.
