Dunk It: best waterproof cases for the iPhone 6s


We’ve rounded up the best waterproof iPhone 6s cases and we’re ready to guide you through our findings.

Since we’re going to talk about the best waterproof iPhone 6s cases that you can conveniently get from Amazon, it goes without saying that Apple’s current-gen phones are not waterproof, unlike the iPhone’s main competitor, and this despite the enhanced durability of the iPhone 6s.

With the iPhone 6s series, Apple brought a series to improvements to the build of its phones. The new aluminum alloy, having solved the #bendgate problems of the iPhone 6 Plus, is one improvement that has received a lot of attention. As it turns out, however, teardowns have revealed that Apple has also equipped the iPhone 6s with a certain degree of protection against water and dust.

Despite the security guards put into place to protect the phone from accidental minor spills, the iPhone 6s is not waterproof and is unlikely to survive a complete submersion. As such, if you want to make sure that your handset doesn't become an overpriced paperweight the next time you go to the beach, lake, or sea, you might want to check out what we think are the best iPhone 6s waterproof cases.

Water proofing is great an all, but if your phone can't handle the drop into, let's say a shallow pond or stream without fracturing the device when it hits the bottom then it's useless. All phones sink so it's bound to break without a case. Cases will always be the better choice.

I have a ghostek tomic 2.0 case for my iphone 6s plus and its really good, slim, looks good and its water, shock, and dust proof.

Have you tried it in water? How deep? I'm thinking of getting a waterproof case - already got my new 6s wet a few times - kinda worried sooner or later my clumsiness and neglect will ruin it.

It's a pretty good case tho the reviews on amazon wouldn't make you think so. You have to perform a water test before putting your phone in it and it seems as if lots of people got bad cases at some point. My personal experience with the case is good, I've been using it since may and it has held up well, I've taken it in the shower every day since i've had it. I have no complaints but one the plastic over the camera cause this weird glare when pointed directly at a light bulb but it hadn't caused any problems tho. check out ghostekproducts.com they actually have a new case coming out and its cheaper and it also looks cooler.

I know someone who has this on their iPhone and it sure works!! If Apple had water resistance they wouldn't need this case but 69.99 it's worth it
