We’ve never heard of Patchworks before, but the company recently sent us some promising cases for iPhone 6/6s and iPhone 6 Plus/6s Plus. ITG Level ($25) is a plastic-and-TPU case with button coverage. ITG Level Pro is similar, but instead of being a one-piece case, Pro fits a thin plastic hard shell onto a TPU inner case. For the same price as Level, Level Pro also contains a slot on the back to hold one card, another slot for using said card as a makeshift kickstand, and holes to use with a lanyard, if you so desire. The cases come in a number of different colors.
ITG Level is a straightforward case. It maintains a good fit on an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus, and works properly with buttons. Texture has been added to the sides of the case for better grip. The port holes are big enough to accommodate “most” third-party charging cables and headphones, a feature also found on the Level Pro case. Our only concern with that is long-term wear and tear on the TPU around the holes, but we can’t knock the case for such a reason — it might hold up just fine.
In addition to ITG Level’s features, ITG Level Pro only offers one card slot, but that seems like a bonus for the same price. The card slot/kickstand is the same as we’ve seen on other cases — it might work in a pinch but it’s not the best solution. Again, though, there’s no real problem with including it.
Though Patchworks is new to us, they’ve clearly done well in creating these cases for iPhone 6/6s and iPhone 6 Plus/6s Plus. And at $25 for the ITG Level or ITG Level Pro on either of Apple’s new iPhones, the company has aggressively priced the cases, as well. Again, we feel that iPhone cases are improving as a whole. Whether it’s companies catching on to what works, or Apple cracking down on requirements, we’re not sure — possibly a mix — but it’s happening. This is more evidence.
