We hope you, your family, and friends enjoy a relaxing holiday together.
Traditionally, when Apple’s newest iPhone is released, we stop reviewing cases for the previous model. We’ve already received a number of cases for Apple’s newest iPhones, and it’s a bit trickier this time around — because while we’ll likely see some cases marketed solely as iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus cases, we’re currently seeing most companies billing their newest cases as compatible with both iPhone models, as in “6/6s” or “6 Plus/6s Plus.” There is a slight difference between the size of the 6 and 6s, of course, as well as the 6 Plus and 6s Plus. So obviously, these cases will not fit each phone in the exact same way.
Going forward, we will only be testing new iPhone cases on how they fit the 6s and 6s Plus. It’s quite possible that some cases will fit Apple’s last iPhones a bit better than these new models — but for a number of reasons, we’ll only be rating cases based on 6s and 6s Plus compatibility. Thanks for reading.
In observance of Labor Day in the U.S. (and Labour Day in Canada), iLounge will be on a limited posting schedule today. We will return to our normal schedule with regular updates on Tuesday, September 8. Have a great holiday!
iLounge has posted an unboxing gallery for the Apple Watch. In a full photo gallery, we take a closer look at the device, along with some comparison photos between the 38mm and 42mm Sport models.
We’ll be putting the device through the paces throughout the weekend, so be sure to check back for our full review on Monday.
iLounge has recently added a new section: Gear. This section will further highlight products we’ve received that have often “slipped through the cracks” in the past — items that don’t fit into our Reviews section. We’ve already featured some new bags and a small battery pack. Apple Watch bands will also have a home in Gear.
Also, for those who haven’t noticed, we’d like to point out that we’ve moved to the popular Disqus system for comments. Our comments system was neglected for far too long, and we’re proud to open the site back up again for feedback. Personal attacks and coarse language still won’t be permitted, but intelligent, reasonable discourse is encouraged.
Follow @iLounge on Twitter during Apple’s Spring Forward event today for up-to-the-second coverage of everything new about the Apple Watch, and any other surprises Apple has in store. After the event ends we’ll have all the details here, so check back regularly throughout the day for an in-depth look. Apple’s special event starts at 10 a.m. Pacific time (1 p.m. EST), and will be streaming live on Apple’s website and on Apple TV’s Special Events channel.
Happy Presidents’ Day from iLounge! We’ll be on a limited publication schedule today in observance of Presidents’ Day, and Family Day in Canada. We will return to normal updates on Tuesday, Feb. 17. Thanks for reading!
