Apple on Tuesday launched the Smart Battery Case for its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s models which comes with an integrated battery pack. Apple claims the smart battery case extends the battery life of an iPhone by up to 25 hours.
The case is available in two colours, charcoal and white, and is made of soft touch silicone and microfiber material. The soft microfiber lining on the inside helps protect your iPhone, while the soft elastomer hinge design makes it easy to put the case on and take it off again. With the Smart Battery Case on, the intelligent battery status is displayed on the iPhone Lock screen and in Notification Center, so you know exactly how much charge you have left.
The battery case supports Lightning accessories, such as the Lightning to USB Cable and works with the iPhone Lightning Dock. The case charges via Apple's standard Lightning cable. The company claims that the Smart Case would increase the battery life up to 25 hours on talk time and 18 hours on browsing over LTE.
The Smart Battery Case is engineered specifically for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6 models. It is priced at $99 (approximately Rs 6,600) and is available for purchase starting Tuesday in the United States and the United Kingdom. However, the company announced no word on its Indian availability. Also, there is no word on whether the company plans to release the Smart Battery Case for other iPhone models.
