Apple Releases First Battery Case To Eat Third-Party Accessory Makers’ Lunch.

In a surprise move, Apple just announced an external battery case for the iPhone 6s. For Apple iPhone users, poor battery back-up has been a constant complaint and with the new iPhone 6s we saw, Apple reduce the battery size to 1715 mAh from the earlier 1810 mAh.Compatible with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s, the $99 Smart Battery Case sees Apple take on other well-known brands in the battery-case realm, such as Mophie which has offered battery-base hybrids for most of the recent iPhone models — including the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s. The core raison d’être of the case is to make it easy for you to charge your phone without having to carry a charger and find an electrical outlet.

With the flip of a switch, the case essentially gives you an on-the-spot power source that promises additional talk-time of more than a day (25 hours) and Internet use of 18-hours (LTE). Apple’s new battery case, which has a soft microfiber lining on the inside will also protect the device, and on the outside, the company had given gone for a silicone cover. But more than that, the key benefit of Apple’s case is that the case works directly with iOS to display remaining battery life in the notification center and lock screen. You can charge the case using a traditional Lightning cable — most third-party batteries rely on a microUSB cable, so that’s one less cable to carry around.

Given the choice between a third-party and an Apple-branded case — which cost the same — there is little question which version consumers would be most likely to go for. Back in September, Apple launched a stylus called “Pencil,” similar to the “Pencil” stylus that a company called FiftyThree also sells through the Apple Store. And the case has passive antennas built into it for good measure, ensuring that the extra hardware strapped onto your phone doesn’t chip away at your cell performance. By releasing an official accessory, Apple can capture all of the profits with the Smart Battery instead of selling Mophie and Anker batteries in its Apple stores.
