It seems iPhone 6s customers are having a love affair with the new rose gold color option. Numerous reports indicate that it’s the most popular color choice for this year’s iPhone release. It’s all shiny and new as soon as you get it, but ten minutes later you realize you’re probably in the market for a new case. And yes, it’s about to completely shield the rose gold goodness.
You sit back in your chair, sigh and begin to question if there’s even hope left in this universe. The good news is there are more than a few cases that will let you show off that new rose gold iPhone, or even just your deep passion for rose gold as a color and fashion statement. Take a look at a few of your best options.
As a bonus, all of these cases are less than 25 bucks each.
Spigen Neo Hybrid EX
For years, Spigen has been one of my favorite iPhone accessory manufacturers, particularly for good cases that strive to preserve the beauty of the iPhone. Right now, there’s no better example of that than Spigen’s Neo Hybrid EX. It’s a slim, two-piece case with a transparent TPU shell and a polycarbonate bumper in — you guessed it — rose gold. You get a double whammy with this case: the clear case will keep your rose gold iPhone on display, plus the rose gold bumper adds in even more of the suave color.
The flexible TPU is a great material choice too. I’ve always had bad experiences with clear polycarbonate shells that would trap dirt, dust and scratch up the back of my iPhones. The case also comes in other colors for folks who don’t play that rose gold game: champagne gold, electric blue, mint and shimmery white. The rose gold sells for $17.99 on Amazon for iPhone 6s and $18.99 for iPhone 6s Plus.
Sunyou PU Leather Case
Arguably the most creative use of rose gold on this list, the Sunyou PU Leather Case is an elegant fashion statement that looks like it costs a lot more than it does. The sides and Apple logo are outlined with fake diamonds, while the back is protected in plaid metal and a layer of rose gold leather. The leather is actually both magnetic and foldable, which means when folded a certain way it can act as a vertical kickstand for your iPhone too.
It’s new to the market but is getting decent reviews on Amazon so far. Other than rose gold, you can get the case in black, purple, gold or silver. It’s $15.99 on Amazon for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
Obliq Slim Meta
The Obliq Slim Meta is a very simple polycarbonate case that snaps onto your iPhone 6s or 6s Plus and provides minimal protection. The back also features a classy airbrushed design that gives a brushed aluminum feel to it. It probably won’t give you much confidence about dropping your iPhone, but should at least guard from dings and scratches. Plus, it’s rose gold from head to toe.
Spigen Tough Armor
We’re back to Spigen, but hey, Spigen was really on top of its game with releasing rose gold iPhone cases shortly after the 6s came out. This time Spigen’s famous Tough Armor case gets the attention. This two-part TPU and polycarbonate case is the best protection you can get for your iPhone without transforming it into a cinder block. The iPhone 6s Plus model has a built-in kickstand on the back too. This case might not mold you into the fashion icon you expected your rose gold iPhone to, but it still maintains the color.
