Best Cheap iPhone 6 Cases

Killer deal: Sleek iPhone 6 and 6 Plus cases starting at $5 from Amazon

Killer deal: Sleek iPhone 6 and 6 Plus cases starting at $5 from Amazon

We spend a great deal of time here at BGR digging through the web in search of the best available protective cases for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Why only those smartphone models, for the most part? Beautiful though they may be, Apple’s aluminum housings are insanely slippery and if you don’t use a case that offers some grip, you will drop your phone.

I’ve shown you my personal favorite iPhone 6 case, though I’ve also really been enjoying Vaja’s leather back lately, which isn’t really a case at all but provides much-needed grip. We also have plenty of great case suggestions that are more traditional and still sleek.

But what if you just want a good old-fashioned phone case that protects your handset for a few bucks at most? We’ve got some deals for you today that you won’t want to pass up.

Here, we’ll show you three videos that will give us a good idea of the different kinds of experiences Apple might create using Metaio’s AR tech. More →

How a secret Apple Watch feature can significantly improve the device’s charging speed

Earlier this month we brought you word of a secret diagnostic port on the Apple Watch that’s intended for Apple’s own internal use. However, that hasn’t stopped accessories manufacturers from designing their own Apple Watch straps designed specifically to take advantage of this unlisted six-pin port. Via AppleInsider, the team at Reserve Strap have spent some time designing a watch strap that fits into the port and now they’ve posted a video showing how the port can be used to charge the Apple Watch slightly more quickly than through Apple’s own inductive charging method.
