Apple introduces its own charging case for iPhone 6s

Apple has released a case for the iPhone 6s meant to improve battery life.

Although the iPhone 6s is a widely considered a great smartphone, its battery life has been something that many have taken issue with. In an attempt to alleviate some of these frustrations, Apple has for the first time released a case that has a built-in battery to help lengthen the usage time of the 6s. With this case, Apple is calming it will extend the battery to about 18 hours of internet usage on LTE, up to 25 hours of talk time, and 20 hours of video playback.

The design of the new charging case is interesting to say the least, and it is flexible so users do not need to pull the case apart in order to remove the iPhone or place it inside. The case charges with a lightning cable, and users can charge both the case and the 6s at the same time. The amount of charge left in the case can be seen on the screen of the iPhone while charging and while being used to power the iPhone. The amount of charge in the case is shown as a percentage, rather than the more popular yet less accurate LED reporting used by many other cases.

Some reviews of the case have already released, and many seem to agree that there are better alternatives that cost less money, provide more charge, and also give some added protection. The real appeal of the Apple case is that it is smarter, providing benefits like on-screen battery levels and automatic charging at low levels. For a steep $99, these benefits may not be enough for users to buy the case.
