Official iPhone 6s Smart Battery Case Released By Apple, Costs Just $99
Apple has jumped onboard the 'battery pack' bandwagon and has released the official Smart Battery Case for iPhone 6s.
The Official iPhone 6s Smart Battery Case Has Arrived
As iPhones are getting thinner and lighter every year, Apple has to cut corners to make sure that their smartphones look and feel as svelte as possible compared to last year's release. The iPhone 6 and 6s however, are as thin as an iPhone can ever get. But sadly for the user, the smartphone makes a compromise on battery life, but the Plus model reigns supreme in this arena. In order to make up for the lost battery life on the smaller model, Apple has released the Smart Battery Case for the iPhone 6s, which also happens to be compatible with last year's iPhone 6.
The Smart Battery Case is made from silicone and features a "soft microfiber lining" on the inside to keep your device as safe as possible. The case even features a "soft elastomer hinge," allowing you to easily take the case on or off without ever damaging your iPhone.
On the battery end, the Smart Battery Case will give you talk time of up to 25 hours, 18 hours of Internet usage over LTE, with video playback of up to 20 hours. Quite honestly, that's a lot when you compare it to the stock battery figures of the iPhone 6s and 6. In other words, if the battery gives up the ghost on you rather quickly, then we highly recommend that you invest in this case right away.
As you'd expect, the Smart Battery Case utilizes the iPhone's Lightning port to charge up. And also, if you want to charge the Smart Battery Case itself, then you'll also need a Lightning cable for it, which plugs in at the bottom. It's also worth mentioning here that the Smart Battery Case is compatible with the iPhone Lightning Dock, so you can charge away without ever having to take your iPhone out of the case.
On the color end, the Smart Battery Case is available in two options - Charcoal Gray and White. Though we do wish that there were more color options available at this point in time, but quite frankly, the two available options fit well with the current iPhone 6s color lineup.
The case costs $99 and is available to buy immediately from the online Apple Store or a brick and mortar outlet. For more details on the Smart Battery Case, simply head over to this link.
