During today's unveiling of the iPhone 6, the iPhone 6 Plus and the Apple Watch, Apple also announced plans to introduce new cases for both of the new iPhones. First of all, the company will be continuing the leather line of cases that it first introduced for the iPhone 5s, offering cases that will fit both the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus.

The cases are crafted from hand-selected leather that's been treated with aniline dye, and they feature a microfiber interior to protect the phone and its new protruding lens. The leather cases are available in Black, Olive Brown, Midnight Blue, Soft Pink, and Product (RED).

Along with the leather cases, Apple is also offering custom-fit silicone cases for the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, which offer protection while "maintaining their incredibly slim form." The silicone cases come in Black, White, Pink, Blue, Green, and Product (RED).

New custom-fit silicone cases cover iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus while maintaining their incredibly slim form. The camera stays protected just beneath the case, while a soft microfiber lining cushions the entire iPhone. Each perfectly form-fitting case has a smooth finish that feels as good as it looks.

Leather cases for the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 are priced at $45, while leather cases for the 5.5-inch version are priced at $49. Silicone cases for the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 are priced at $35, and 5.5-inch silicone cases are $39.

Cases for the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus are listed on Apple's website and will presumably be purchasable beginning on Friday, September 19, when the iPhones hit stores. Pre-orders for the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus will begin on Friday, September 12.

The camera lens is not recessed, will scratch like crazy... so now they have a case that will cause the lens to be recessed.

Silicone will Work

I am ok with the silicone. Being a vegan, I don't use animal products and my Iphone will not either. But at least there is a choice. There of course will be the ton of cases on Amazon that will be much cheaper.

Can't believe they are actually charging $5 more for the plus cases. You couldn't just absorn the 1 penny increase in materials in the bigger cases?
