If you upgraded to an iPhone 6s, chances are the case on your old 6 fits just fine. But if the old case is waterproof, don’t go dropping that 6s in a puddle.
The iPhone 6s is taller, wider and thicker by 1/100th of an inch in either direction, hardly noticeable in hand but enough to compromise the protection on a waterproof case.
Catalyst, an accessories company favored by Apple users unafraid of a little water on their devices, has rolled out a new waterproof case for the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
The cases are available for pre-order now on the Catalyst website and retails for $74.99. This may seem pricey for a case but consider the case hermetically seals the iPhone and protects it if submerged in water up to 16 feet deep.
Catalyst had to do a quick redesign on its waterproof cases after the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus debuted a smidge bigger, differences reportedly related to a new aluminum casing that makes the handset more rugged. Most third-party case makers and even Apple report that 6 cases will fit on the 6s.
The case has an integrated touchscreen film to provide access to all 6s features and a hard-coated, non-recessed lens turns the iPhone into an underwater camera.
It is available for the 6s and 6s Plus in black/space gray, orange/gray, white/light gray, green/white and white/red.
