Fashionably late to the accessory game as always, Apple has finally gotten around to making an official battery case for the iPhone. It took Apple nearly two years to come up with this rather ugly design for an iPhone battery case. Apple's newly released Smart Battery Case for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6 is essentially one of Apple's protective Silicone Cases with a battery attached to the back in the form of a raised bump. Not exactly what you would expect from Apple's sleek design prowess isn't it.Read More
For the first time ever Apple has introduced Lightning docks machined out of solid aluminum, color matched to the newly announced iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus models. These beautifully minimalist metal docks look identical to the white plastic-made Lightning dock made for the iPhone 6, but come at a more premium price of $49. Apple says the new aluminum Lightning iPhone Dock is compatible with all iPhone models that have a Lightning connector. It's available right now.Read More
An Indiegogo campaign for a new battery case claims that it's the world's thinnest and lightest battery case made for the iPhone 6, including the upcoming iPhone 6s. The ThinCharge battery case seems like the perfect solution for those looking for drop protection and extra battery life without the bulk. It's slimmer and considerably shorter compared to Mophie's 0.61"-thick Juice Pack Air, and still provides the same amount of backup power. Featuring a soft-touch, matte finished exterior and a Lightning connector pass-through for charging both the iPhone and the battery case itself, the ThinCharge conceals a 2,600mAh rechargeable battery inside its sleek 0.5"-thick form factor capable of providing a full charge with the press of a button.
ThinCharge is currently being funded on Indiegogo and so far has successfully exceeded its funding goal of $30,000. Early backers of the campaign can pre-order the ThinCharge battery case for the iPhone 6 for $59, which is expected to ship in limited quantities as early as next month. Anyone who pre-orders the case will also have the option of waiting for the iPhone 6s version of the ThinCharge.
