  • Apple Launches Official Smart Battery Case for the iPhone 6s


    On Tuesday, Apple has launched a new case for the 4.7-inch iPhone 6s – an official battery pack case that can be used to extend your iPhone 6s' battery life by up to 25 hours. This is the first time that Apple has ever released any kind of battery extension case for the iPhone 6s, and with all of the new accessories Apple has been making for its devices lately, it's clear that Apple is trying to monetize off of the niches that consumers really want for their devices.

    The case is compatible with the iPhone 6s, and the iPhone 6, as they're both essentially the same in size with small variances based on the materials and strengthening techniques used. What's interesting about this case is that, while charging, it shows you the battery life of both your iPhone and your smart battery case on the Lock Screen and in Notification Center alongside your Apple Watch battery information, as shown below in an image first shared by the Wall Street Journal.



    Apple offers the new case in both white and charcoal grey, which will match your iPhone depending on the color that you have. The case does have a slightly awkward shape to it, but since it has an Apple logo, there is a good chance it will still sell pretty well.

    The case is available on Apple's Web site for the price of $99.00 at this link and ships within 3 business days.

      LOL. Apple will continue to make the phones thinner and sacrifice battery life only to sell you this afterwards. I can't see myself continuing the iPhone route once my iPhone 5 gives up. Hopefully it'll last another few years.

      Apple Watch, iPad Stylus and now battery packs for your iPhone.... Tim Cooks Apple is a very different one.

      Oh you mean the "niche" of having a decent battery?

      If this thing charges and syncs with a lightning connector, I might just have to bite.

      The battery case supports Lightning accessories, such as the Lightning to USB Cable (included with your iPhone) and works with the iPhone Lightning Dock (sold separately). Choose from two complementary colors.
      I think I finally found the perfect battery case for me.

      Nice option. Good for those that travel. I could not see using it daily. My 6S + is big enough

      The iPhone “Camelback”
      The iPhone “Hunchback”
      The iPhone “Bulge”

      Actually, it’s true that the vast majority of people make it through the day on a single charge just fine, so the comment that this caters to a niche market is absolutely true. If the iPhone was indeed so much worse on battery life than other phones and most people were not making it through the day, then iPhone wouldn’t be nearly as successful.

      is this a joke? has Jony Ive been kidnapped?

      Edit: there are better looking power cases out there

      here for instance(in black though)


      Edit: found this tweeted by not Jony Ive @JonyIveParody

      Me: The iPhone should be thinner.

      Tim: But it needs longer battery life.

      Phil: Listen to Jony, he makes a GREAT CASE.

      Me: **** you, Phil…
