Protect your iPhone with a Silicone Case

People commonly drop their smartphones, and sometimes the surface that the phone hits is hard. This can cause the glass screen to shatter or it can do damage to the internal components. An iPhone silicone case can protect your phone from damage, and a wide selection of new and used ones are available on eBay.

How do you put a silicone case on an iPhone?

Silicone phone cases are soft, so it's actually simple to install one on your iPhone. Just line one side of the edges up with the corresponding edges of your smartphone, and then push the rest of the smartphone into the other side of the phone case, pulling the soft edges around the sides into place as needed.

What iPhone models are silicone phone cases made for?

  • iPhone 6/6s

What colors and features do iPhone smartphone cases have?

Silicone phone cases for iPhones come in a wide variety of colors, including red, green, black, orange, and blue. Some silicone phone cases are clear to display the Apple and iPhone logos on your phone. They can also have designs, such as glitter, holiday pictures, cartoons, and more. Beyond being made of a protective silicone, cases also have precise cutouts around the camera, buttons, and ports. Some options also have ribbing along the sides to make holding your encased phone easier, and some can even have reinforced corners to give extra protection in case of a drop.

How do you choose a silicone iPhone case?

The ports, buttons, and camera on iPhones can vary between models, and even the overall size of the phone can be different depending on which iPhone you have. Therefore, the most important thing to do is to ensure that the phone case that you might purchase is compatible with the iPhone that you are trying to fit. Then, you will want to check out the drop protection that the phone case advertises. Phone cases claim different levels of drop protection, varying from a drop protection of a few feet to several feet. Finally, pick out a color or design that you like. Some people like to coordinate with their purses or clothing, or you can choose a color that's neutral and that goes with everything. You can also purchase several silicone phone cases so that you can switch depending on your outfit and mood.
