Apple has surprised everyone with the release of a new accessory for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s. In an unexpected move, Apple released a battery case or a juice pack for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s. It calls it the Smart Battery Case and it is an accessory that will definitely eat a chunk of market share from third party accessories makers like Mophie or Belkin.
The Smart Battery Case is compatible with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s and there is not indication at this point that there will be battery packs for other Apple products. For now, it appears that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s are the ones that need battery packs. The release of the Smart Battery Case is an admission from Apple that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s have poor battery life.
iPhone 6 and 6s Smart Battery Case
The Smart Battery Case for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s is meant to add talk time up to 25 hours, Internet use up to 18 hours on LTE, an longer audio and video playback. What does th is battery pack do to earn the “Smart” name? Apparently, when the Smart Battery Case is on, an intelligent battery status is displayed on the iPhone Lock screen and in Notification Center. This is supposed to inform the user about the status of the phone’s battery.
In terms of design, the Smart Battery Case is not the best looking battery case out there. In fact, it borders on ugly. The case has a bump at the back that makes one think that the iPhone ate a smaller iPhone. From the looks of it, the case will be uncomfortable to use.
The Apple Smart Battery Case appears to be available in the US for now. It will surely be heading to the Philippines but the exact schedule for its availability in this side of the world is unknown at this point. Pricing in the Philippines is also not known but in the US, the case is priced at $99.
