    I know a number of folks have been waiting on a LifeProof. I just received an email regarding limited availability of the LifeProof fre for iPhone 6. It's priced at $79.99. For those interested, you can grab it at LifeProof only, for now.

    Good to know they're making progress. I'm holding out for the nüüd model.

    Chris, are you ordering one, and then doing a video review?

    It's 24 degrees this morning in NY. I was in Florida three weeks ago. LifeProof missed their window for a review.

    I got mine today. Small changes to the design. Only the Lightning cable Apple gives will fit there is no spare room, it sticks out enough to give enough to get a good grip on it so you don't fray the ends

    I've always used the nüüd case with a screen protector, against LifeProof's advice. I'm thing about waiting for it too.

    The fre is now available in white too.

    They've been running 20% off sales but the iPhone 6 cases are excluded. Ugh. I'll wait for them to be released to the AT&T stores and get one with my FAN discount.

    LifeProof is a great case to use to protect the iPhone from the elements in certain settings, for everything else I LOVE the apple leather cases.

    Has anyone tried the Catalyst for the 6?

    Can you compare the Catalyst to the LifeProof fre?

    I see they now have a FrePower case with 2x the battery. Anyone try it?

    I preordered when I was notified about the new Fré case. After receiving it, testing, and installing, I took it to work and found that I cannot use the HDMI or VGA adapters that I use daily for my job. (I'm a collaboration media systems specialist, and use both my iPhone and iPad for systems testing every morning)
    I wrote to lifeproof and ended up returning the case.
    Over the past few months, I have had conversations with them and they have no plans on fixing the "door" to accommodate other apple adapters.

    I let them know that this is the first time since they were a kickstarter campaign that I will not be supporting them. I cannot use a case I have to remove every morning- especially when removing the case too many times can cause the seal to fail.

    I think that this has more to do with them being owned by Otterbox, and being told to comply with Apple's wishes to make it difficult to use aftermarket cables, but that's only a loose theory.
