The answer is: it depends. Extended warranty protection is great for some and not so great for others. The reality is manufacturer warranties have become more stringent with limited coverage and shorter coverage periods. On top of that, technology such as smartphones have become integrated into our daily lives, leaving them exposed to accidents more frequently. If you are prone to cracking your iPhone screen, an extended warranty would more than likely be advantageous to you.

Apple's latest smartphone, the iPhone 6, is lauded for its durability and tough design. Sure, "Bendgate" erupted shortly after launch last year, but the hype seems to have passed. No matter how low any device rates on breakability or how many drop and dunk tests it passes, you can't guarantee indestructibility. It's still a high-tech handheld computer that's expensive (and exasperating) to replace if damaged.
These are our top 10 iPhone 6 cases & accessories:
10. Nodus Access Case
The Nodus Access Case offers a strong bonding surface using microsuction technology. Your iPhone attaches to the microsuction pads with a secure, residue-free force. It's a stylish case that's beautifully handcrafted with full-grain Italian leather and a microfiber lining.
9. CM4 Q Card Case
CM4's Q Card Case for iPhone 6 protects your phone and simplifies your life. This ultra-slim phone case comfortably stores cash and three cards (such as ID and credit cards). Designed with soft-touch rubber and premium fabric, the Q Card Case comes in black onyx, champagne gold, Pacific green, gunmetal gray and red rouge.
8. Speck CandyShell Grip Case
Speck's CandyShell Grip Case provides two layers of protection and a hard outer shell. Rubber stripes ensure a secure no-slip grip for playing games, texting or snapping pics. The raised bezel also protects the screen and keeps your phone from sliding when face down.
