My iPhone 6s Plus Saved From Cracking Again by NewerTech NuGuard KX Case

NewerTech NuGuard KX Case for Apple iPhone6s and 6s Plus (and older models)

Get NewerTech NuGuard KX Case for iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus at OWC.

I dropped my iPhone 6s Plus about 4 feet onto concrete. My teenage daughter gasped and asked if it was cracked.

I laughed without worry and picked it up—no harm done. The NewerTech NuGuard KX Case for iPhone 6s or 6s Plus had saved it again, for the 5th time or so.

I wrote the following last year when getting the case for my iPhone 6s Plus.


I’ve been using the NewerTech NuGuard KX for iPhone 5s on my iPhone 5s for over two years. It uses a “Orbing gel technology to absorb and evenly distribute kinetic energy drop test certified to STD-810G U.S. Military Standard”. See my review of the NewerTech NuGuard KX Case for iPhone.

After over two years of use, my iPhone 5s is still humming along, yet I’ve dropped it many a time on hard surfaces. The case has done its job well, and it has (even better) kept me from dropping the phone in the first place, by dint of a better grip surface for my largish hands. This is a particular concern for me when cycling at 20 mph or so, and pulling the phone out of my jersey pocket to check an incoming call.

With a larger form factor of the 6s Plus*, I suspect that drop protection will be even more important, so for my new iPhone 6s Plus, so I ordered the NewerTech NuGuard KX Case for iPhone 6s or 6s Plus to go with it.

Panoramas with moving subject

One thing that impresses me with the iPhone 6s Plus is its ability to take panoramas with minimal motion defects, event handheld in a moving boat!
