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.

LifeProof has become a household name in the iPhone accessory world since debuting its first ultra-protective case in 2011. The company has continued improving its waterproof cases with each new version of the iPhone. With the iPhone 5, LifeProof introduced its Nüüd series, which offers protection from water, snow, dirt, and shock while still exposing the display. We took a look at it last summer, noting that its an excellent choice for the adventurous iPhone user, albeit a bit bulky. It’s still available for $48.

With the iPhone 6, Apple presented LifeProof with a new challenge. The large, thin form factor of the iPhone 6 meant that LifeProof would have to work incredibly hard to develop a case that maintained a manageable form factor, while offering the same protection that users of the case have come to expect. We reviewed the LifeProof Fre for the iPhone 6 earlier this year and pointed out that it was a well thought out option, but that the Nüüd model would be very much welcomed. I’ve recently been testing the LifeProof Nüüd case for the iPhone 6. Here’s what you need to know:
