Each day from now through the release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Technology Tell will be taking a look at the iPhone 6 case lineup from manufacturers whose products we have reviewed for previous iPhone models. Check back each day as we help you determine which cases you should preorder (or wait for) to protect your new mobile device.
designed by m Introduces Stunning Collection of Minimalist Accessories for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus
designed by m is branching out. We reviewed and loved the original Al13 aluminum bumper for iPhone, we reviewed and love the the mPact Glass screen protector, and we haven’t reviewed (but love) the AL13 v2. So, which of these are coming to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus?
The AL13 v2 is being replaced by the AL13 v3, which provides aluminum protection without changing the look of your iPhone 6, retaining its rounded edges and elegant design. It’s also available in silver, champagne, space gray, along with matte black, and believer green if you’d like a break from Apple’s colors.
Additional features include:
- It’s crafted from aerospace aluminum
- It’s tough, yet incredibly lightweight
- It has shock absorbent, anti-scuff rubber lining
- It requires no screws for installation
- mPact Film is included
You can pre-order the AL13 v3 now for $55 at thinkbym.com ($64.99 for the iPhone 6 Plus), and it’ll retail for $79.99.
The mPact Glass will also get its appropriately sized update. As before, it’s cut from a single sheet of glass that’s treated to be heat and pressure resistant for extreme screen protection. And despite its diminutive 0.4mm thickness, it’s still three times harder than traditional screen protectors. You can pre-order now for $24.99, with shipments to come in December.
