After BendGate, we’re pretty sure you’ll want to be protecting your iPhone 6 from as much as possible. Our advice would be just to not sit on it, or any other smartphone for that matter, but there are obviously still the dangers of water, accidental drops and dust to the safety of your shiny new phone.
We’ve found 12 rugged cases to protect your iPhone 6 from anything thrown at it. Some are very expensive, but it’s the price you pay for protection!
This LifeProof case does what it says on the tin. It’s waterproof, shockproof, snow proof and dirt proof, so really will prevent your phone from absolutely everything, including up to two metres of water for one hour! It also features a built-in scratch-proof screen protector, which still works with every function of the iPhone 6, including TouchID. If that wasn’t enough, there’s also a Sound Enhancement System built in, so that your tunes can be played out loud without a speaker.
This case is available to buy from the LifeProof website for $71.99 (£46.67).[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
This dual-layer case has drop protection from 2 metres, and is designed and tested to meet or exceed MIL-STD 801G standards for drop protection, but it still has a slim and stylish look to it. The Survivor Slim also comes with an ultra-clear sheet of screen protection film, which is compatible with the TouchID.

3) Supcase Unicorn Beetle
This dual layer designed case has a screen protector and impact resistant bumpers, just like the other cases. However, this one is quite a bit cheaper, plus it also comes with a belt clip holster, just in case you’re not up for putting your iPhone 6 in your pocket or bag like a normal person.
This case is available to buy from the Supcase website for $9.99 (£6.47) for a black one, and $24.99 (£16.19) for another colour. Weird.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
The Catalyst Waterproof case is designed to be waterproof to 5m and to meet military standards for drops up to 2m, so there’s no chance of your iPhone 6 breaking if you accidentally drop it down the toilet! The case is made of impact resistant polycarbonate, a soft-touch rubber bumper, silicone seals and air & water tight acoustic membranes.
This case is available to buy from the Catalyst website for $69.99 (£45.36).[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]

The main function of the Armorbox Dual layer Case is shock absorption. Adopting a uni-body dual layer design, a flexible inner core and polycarbonate hard shell your iPhone 6 will be safe and sound. If you’re worried about dropping your phone, let the additional bumper points at all four corners handle the stress.

10) Case-Mate Tough Xtreme Case
The Tough Xtreme Case proves that rugged doesn’t have to mean ugly and bulky. It combines military-grade protection with a sleek design.

A soft exterior wrapped around a hard skeletal structure is fused with a soft, impact-absorbing interior, while the built-in screen protector helps to prevent screen scratches.
