Each person’s work conditions call for different requirements in a smartphone protector case. Whether you’re looking for a budget-friendly, heavy-duty or personalised case, we have the best options for you.

If you’ve managed to attain one of the most coveted smartphones on the market, there’s a good chance you’re not interested in unintentionally putting it through a strength test. 

The best way to keep your new investment in pristine condition is by wrapping a case around it. Can’t decide which one’s right for your new device? We looked at some of the most popular small business industries and nominated the best iPhone 6 cases to match.

iphone 6 cases

Construction industry

Construction sites are an especially demanding job environment, so you need a case that keeps your iPhone protected against drops, dust and other rough handling. No one does rugged cases better than Otterbox. The Otterbox Defender Series is a triple-layer, ultra-rugged case that’s impact resistant, with an integrated screen cover and port covers to keep out all of the dust and debris. It also comes with a holster-style swiveling clip for attaching it to your belt.

RRP $59.95

Finance and insurance industries

If you’re regularly on the road for work, you’ll get great value from a case that comes with an integrated vehicle mount. The Zuna Drive is the only case on the market that clips to your car’s air vent using a hook on the back of the case. The beauty of this approach is that you don’t have to fuss around with attaching and removing it from a car dock − many require you to remove your iPhone from its case before you can mount it.

RRP $40.00

Health and social service industries

Smartphones and long shifts don’t make the best of friends, as your smartie will often run out of juice before you do.The TYLT Energi Sliding Power Case comes with a beefy 3,200mAh battery, which is bigger than the one in the iPhone 6. The cool thing about this case is that you can use it with or without the battery pack.

RRP $100.00

Manufacturing industry

If you’re in the manufacturing business, you’ll get good value out of a case that’s sturdy enough to withstand drops, but not so bulky that it’s hard to squeeze it into your back pocket. The Cygnett WorkMate adds some much-needed protection to the iPhone 6 while keeping it relatively slim and compact. The shock absorbent TPU corners keep the iPhone 6 safe against accidental falls, and the ‘grippy’ silicone on the back means it’ll stay put when sitting on your car dashboard.

RRP $29.95

Professional service industry 

Your iPhone case is a great place to reinforce your company branding. Dick Smith’s online Move store ($45) lets you design your own case by uploading an image to the website, and there are even tools to adjust the scale, rotation and orientation, as well as add Instagram-style filters. The $45 price tag includes free shipping to anywhere in Australia, and it takes three to five days for delivery. You can purchase up to five custom-printed cases per order.

RRP $45

Retail industry 

Armband-style cases are mainly designed for fitness, but they’re also a good option for retail workers that are constantly on their feet. The Belkin Sport Fit Plus has an adjustable, water-resistant strap that securely attaches the iPhone 6 to your arm without adding too much extra bulk. The clear plastic front keeps the iPhone 6 safe from scratches, and gives you complete access to the touchscreen without needing to take it out of the armband. It also has a built-in pocket to stash a key, cash and credit cards.

RRP $34.95
