iPhone 6s and 6s Plus Announcement



SAFE Wallet 6/6 Plus
Compatibility Report UPDATE

iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus




UPDATE (10/3/15) — We've posted a new update specific to the SAFE Wallet 6 Plus being 100% compatible with the iPhone 6s Plus!!!




It's been an exciting week since Apple's big reveal on Tuesday! Now, it's official: the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are this year's 4.7" and 5.5" iPhone models (respectively).

Want to skip to the part about SAFE Wallet compatibility?

Before the unveiling of the new iPhones, many speculated that the thickness of the devices would be much thicker to prevent future "bend-gate" related fiascos in Apple Stores around the world.

Now that the new devices are official, Apple has published the full specifications, which can be found below.





New iPhone 6s compared to iPhone 6 (2014)

  • 0.2 mm thicker (6.9 mm to 7.1 mm) 2.89% increase
  • 0.2 mm taller (138.1 mm to 138.3 mm) 0.14% increase 
  • 0.1 mm wider (67.0 mm to 67.1 mm) 0.15% increase


New iPhone 6s Plus compared to iPhone 6 Plus (2014)

  • 0.2 mm thicker (7.1 mm to 7.3 mm) 2.81% increase
  • 0.1 mm taller (158.1 mm to 158.2 mm) 0.06% increase
  • 0.1 mm wider (77.8 mm to 77.9 mm) 0.13% increase

What does this mean for the SAFE Wallet? 

We believe there is an extremely high probability the SAFE Wallet 6 and 6 Plus will fit the respective "S-model" iPhones with no modification to the tools!

Like most of you, we haven't had the chance to handle the new iPhones ourselves. That being said, we are confident most cases on the market should fit without concern.

While the polycarbonate we injection mold with is extremely hard and durable, the material has a slight ability to "flex" as needed.

The maximum increase in any dimension is 0.2 mm, which is 1/5 of a Millimeter overall, or 1/10 of a Millimeter per side. This adds less thickness per side than a sheet of paper wrapped around each side of the iPhone. Our best estimate suggests this should NOT interfere with functionality!

This means (until further notice), the SAFE Wallet 6 should fit the iPhone 6s, and the SAFE Wallet 6 Plus should fit the iPhone 6s Plus!!!

Thanks everyone, see you on the Fast Track!

  2. I just received my iPhone 6s Plus today but before I get too excited I'm waiting for your compatibility update. I'm sure there are a lot of people with their fingers crossed hoping they didn't waste almost a year waiting on something they can't even use. Please let me/us know ASAP so we can cancel our orders if necessary. Thank you.

    1. Hi Courtney, we've marketed the SAFE Wallet 6 Plus as an iPhone 6 Plus case the whole time. We've confirmed the iPhone 6s Plus will work with the SAFE Wallet 6 Plus, as noted in our latest BulletBlog article.

      It's also worth noting that we are not able to cancel pre-orders at this stage. Everything is shipping from our warehouse in Southern California today :-)

      Thanks again, please let me know of any additional questions or concerns.
