Does it fit? iPhone 6 & 6 Plus Mock-ups

10 likes

This morning I made cardboard mock-ups of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Compared to the iPhone 4 & 5, the 6 Plus is freakishly large. So here's the verdict on our "standard" Phone Case — it fits the naked 6, and no-go on the 6 Plus. We're tweaking the standard case to give a little more room for the iPhone 6 with a form-fitting protective leather or silicone case, and we'll create a separate "plus size" Phone Case for the iPhone 6 Plus and similar "phablet"-class devices. Here are some process photos of my morning craft session...

Can't buy 'em. Gotta make 'em.
Can't buy 'em. Gotta make 'em.
Whoa! That's a big phone!
Whoa! That's a big phone!
Yes. Yes. No-go!
Yes. Yes. No-go!
Can you hear me now?

      I'm excited! I might be one of the phone iPhone 6+ users with a crazy big phone. The good news? If you make a case, you'll also perfectly fit the new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 coming in October!

      For reference, per Apple's web site, the dimensions of the iPhone 6 Plus are:
      Height: 6.22 inches (158 mm)
      Width: 3.06 inches (78 mm)
      Thickness: 0.28 inch (7 mm)

      It's great to see people having fun at work. :p I have a freakishly large Nokia Lumia 1520 with a 6 inch screen, I haven't compared the dimensions with the 6 plus, but I assume it's close. I'd love to see you making a larger phone case. :)
