Despite issues with iOS updates that knock out your cell service and material that bends in your front pocket, the new iPhones are selling out quickly. Apple reports 10 million phones sold in just three days this past weekend, and despite the issues, the phones will continue to sell well.

If you bought an iPhone 6 you're going to want a new case to help protect your investment. Some case makers already have updated designs hitting the market, while the rest will be coming very shortly. Whether you like the slim and sleek look or prefer more rugged support, take a look through the options and choose the case that's right for you.

If you're a texter or a gamer, you'll want a little extra grip on your phone case. The Speck CandyShell Grip has raised rubber ridges that help you grasp the case a little more securely. There's a raised bezel that goes around the front to protect the screen from bumps.

OtterBox Defender Case
When I think rugged, serious protection, I think OtterBox. Their cases are designed for people whose phones take a bit of a beating in the course of a day; perhaps some accidental drops or impact. The Commuter series has you covered with its two-piece design, tight-fitting plug covers to keep your phone free of dirt and grime, and a screen protector to help protect from scratches.

Tylt Energi Sliding Power Case
If you can't make it through a day without charging your battery, (and who among us can?) you're going to need a case that can do that for you. The Tylt ENERGI Sliding Power Case's exterior layer has a built-in rechargeable battery to power up your phone. The inner protective layer can be used alone if you prefer a slimmer profile when you don't need the extra charge.

Moshi SenseCover
Moshi's signature line of cases is getting an iPhone 6 update so whether you prefer a slim design or a built-in kickstand for watching video, Moshi will deliver. I'm eager for the updated SenseCover; a touch-sensitive folio case which lets you answer calls, and turn off notifications without opening the cover and has an opening in the front so you can quickly check the date and time.
