Official iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Cases Arriving Ahead of Friday's iPhone Launch

While shipping vendors have been instructed to hold deliveries of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus until Friday's official launch date, there is no such restriction on the official Apple cases designed for the new devices. As a result, several MacRumors readers and others who placed orders for cases when iPhone pre-orders went live last Friday have already begun receiving their case orders.

iLounge has shared some good photos of the brown leather iPhone 6 Plus case. The cases are very similar to the leather iPhone 5s cases with a microfiber interior to protect the iPhone itself, although the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus cases have an open bottom edge where as the iPhone 5s cases are enclosed with distinct holes for the various physical features.

At least one MacRumors reader has received his black leather case for the iPhone 6 Plus, while others are receiving iPhone 6 cases as well.

A Reddit poster has received one of each size of case, allowing for a comparison between the two sizes. The poster has also shared some photos showing how the two cases fit in the hand.

Apple's leather cases are priced at $45 for the iPhone 6 and $49 for the iPhone 6 Plus, while silicone cases are also available priced at $35 for the iPhone 6 and $39 for the iPhone 6 Plus. The leather cases are currently shipping with delays of a few business days, while silicone cases are listed as shipping in October.

Not convinced about this iPhone at all. The biggest disappointment is camera…..still 8MP and 1080 video?!?!? I am not photos specialist but pixel is pixel. If I want to make pictures for my family and crop it after that…well 8MP won’t help me much. It has been like 4 generations iPhones with the same camera!!! Not mention waterproof capabilities etc. Apple not even doing catching up anymore.
I am sick and tired of Apple counting on us being loyal

Kudos to Apple for finally making cases that work with THEIR OWN FREAKING 30 pin to lightning adapters!

Not to mention pretty much every lightning dock out there!

It's the pixel size not count that matters on sensors of the same size. pixel count is just a marketing ploy... My old nikon 6MP DSLR can produce much higher quality pictures than any P&S camera with a higher pixel count.

There's plenty of articles related to this topic. read this article... http://www.cnet.com/news/camera-megapixels-why-more-isnt-always-better-smartphones-unlocked/

Nope, it's not. But a bit tired of trying to explain it to people who even admit that they are no photo specialists, but then make completely silly statements as if they had a clue what they are talking about.

It has been like 4 generations iPhones with the same camera!!!

The same camera? The 6/6+ now have the same phase detection AF as my Canon EOS 70D - a 20 megapixel DSLR that is marketed towards the enthusiast photographer segment, with the phase detection AF being a major selling point. If Apple implemented this well, then it's a huge breakthrough.

But if you care so much about megapixel, I am sure you can buy some cheap chinese phone with a 40 megapixel camera. Enjoy your lovely noisy cropped pictures.

I think they count on their customers having somewhat of a clue, or at least on them being able to compare example pictures from various phones/models or read reviews from people who know what they are talking about.

I'm a fan of the (PRODUCT)RED case leather case. I think it's aged beautifully.
