Most wallet cases will hold three cards and have a bit of room for some cash. That’s a tight squeeze, but doable for a night on the town, traveling for work, or just hanging out. You can slip your driver’s license into the case along with an extra credit or debit card as a backup for using the traditional swipe-and-sign method — as well as slip an insurance card in there too if you’re particularly accident prone.
There are two basic types of wallet cases to consider — a polycarbonate and rubber case with slots in the back for cards or a leather folio case design that folds open to hold slots for cards. Both have their charms, but most (not all) of the folding wallet cases mean you have to let the wallet hang open in order to take photos.

15 Best Wallet Cases for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
1. Dock Artisan Sport Leather Wallet Combo Case
There’s a lot to like about the Dock Artisan Sport Leather Wallet Combo Case. While it seems like a standard leather folio case with three cards slots and a larger cash slot, the polycarbonate case that holds the iPhone in place uses magnets to connect your iPhone 6 to the leather wallet portion of the system. Ingenious. It also means that you can slip your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus from the wallet to answer calls, take photos, or just spend some quality time with your iPhone without having the folio section flapping around or folded back on itself. Nice. Very nice. This case is also available for iPhone 5/5s owners. Available in classic black or vintage brown.
