Will 6s cases fit a 6? Same size?

I'm seeing all new cases coming out for the 6s+ and was wondering if they'll still fit an original 6+? I read that the dimensions are slightly different but is it a big enough difference to affect cases? I'm seeing a lot of new cases out there that I would love to try.

Thanks!

I have heard that everything but the waterproof cases will fit just fine.
I've already got an iPhone 6 Lifeproof case on standby for when I get my 6s. If it doesn't fit properly I'll just return it and use something else while I'm waiting for the 6s version. Hopefully it won't take too long to re-tool for the new case, the 6s is only .004"-.008" bigger. I know that seems small, but it could mean the difference between having a perfect seal or not. I use Lifeproof more for the drop and dirt protection (as well as the belt clip and other accessories) than the waterproof element anyway. That being said, a Lifeproof did save my 5s from an accidental submersion one time.

Yeah I can imagine that difference will matter. I have the lifeproof on my 6+ now and it is a snug fit. I'll also get the new one once they release it because I use my phone in the water all the time. I took it tubing a few weeks back and also kayaking.
