Lifeproof updates its popular FRĒ WaterProof case to fit thicker iPhone 6s design [U: FRĒ Power too]

[Update 10/23: Lifeproof FRĒ Power case for iPhone 6s now available for pre-order in black for $129.99 — est. in stock on November 6th.]

Keeping your brand new iPhone in pristine condition from day 1 to day 365 is easily the best way to ensure it holds the most value when it comes time to resell it, and Lifeproof’s popular FRĒ WaterProof series for iPhones is known to successfully protect your shiny new hardware from the elements.

And typically cases made for iPhone designs introduced in even years (2008, 2010, 2012) continue to work without exception on new models introduced in odd years (iPhone 3G to 3GS, iPhone 4 to 4S, iPhone 5 to 5s), but the stronger aluminum body and pressure sensitive touch display used on this year’s iPhone models means some close fit cases for iPhone 6 won’t be compatible with iPhone 6s.

That’s the case with the very precise FRĒ WaterProof case. To remedy the iPhone 6 version’s incompatibility on this year’s iPhone models, Lifeproof has redesigned its FRĒ WaterProof series with new dimensions that fit both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s.

Available for pre-order from $79.95 and shipping at the start of November, the updated FRĒ WaterProof iPhone 6/6s case is sold in 6 color combinations and still resistant to intrusion from water, dirt, snow, and drops. Notably, the FRĒ WaterProof iPhone 6s case is also fully compatible with the faster Touch ID sensor as well as 3D Touch.

Most users won’t recognize the tiny differences in dimensions between each version, but be sure to opt for the new version if you have or plan on using the s-series iPhone 6. Last year’s model (check out our review here) can be had from $60.33 on Amazon, but note that it will not work with the newest iPhones.

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Limits are meant to be defied. LifeProof FRĒ for iPhone 6s takes technology where it has never gone before with ultimate protection against water, dirt, snow and drop, available to preorder today.

LifeProof FRĒ for iPhone 6s is engineered to be the thinnest, lightest, most protective case available and complements Apple’s inspired design. Now, LifeProof offers its four-proof technology closer to an Apple device launch than ever before.

“Where there is a barrier – overcome it. Where there is an obstacle – conquer it,” said LifeProof President and CEO Pete Lindgren. “LifeProof cases are designed to allow you to defy the limits and adventure in environments you would never have before.”

FRĒ defies the elements with a built-in scratch protector that keeps the display brilliant without inhibiting use of the touchscreen experience. Every device feature is accessible and fully functional, including Live Photos, 3D Touch and 2nd generation Touch ID.

Dive deeper and ride further with FRĒ, equipped with waterproof protection to 6.6 feet for one hour, drop protection to 6.6 feet and complete enclosure from sand and dirt. The waterproof iPhone 6s case meets military standards for shock and impact protection and is compatible with LIFEACTÍV QuickMount accessories.

LifeProof FRĒ for iPhone 6s is available for preorder, with NÜÜD and FRĒ Power available coming later this year. FRĒ and NÜÜD for iPhone 6s Plus are also in development. For more information or to preorder FRĒ for iPhone 6s, visit

    The lifeproof case for the iPhone 6 fits my 6S fine

      Do you notice any bulging at the seams around the waterproof seal? Seems really odd that they would go through the trouble to redesign a popular case, interrupting holiday sales, if the old one fits _properly._

      • darkenv2 - 7 years ago

        I haven’t noticed anything like that. It seems like it fits perfectly fine

  2. Mike Sisco - 7 years ago

    does anyone know if the 6s plus will fit in the 6 plus case

    does anyone know if the 6s plus will fit in the 6 plus lifeproof case
