    Does not work correctly

    I purchased this in December and it does not work well at all. I was hoping to use it as a cover full time but this is not possible. When you connect a wall socket to charge it the phone is the only thing that charges. The cover is totally bypassed and does not charge, no matter how long it is plugged in. . Instead you need to take the phone out of the cover and charge both separately.

    Great product

    I just recently purchased this case from Apple. I must say I love it so far. You can't really judge this case from the Internet. Go to apple and hold it in your hand before you judge. Does add a little bit of weight, but what battery case doesn't? Also the added weight feels very balanced in the hand. I love the battery display built right into io9 notifications bar. What really sold it for me was the built in lighting port, and when charging it charges the case and phone at the same time.

    Bad

    Got this for the wife as a present for her new iPhone 6. Worked for a month. Now it won't charge. Return limit was 14 days. So stuck with it. Waste of good money. Would have been better off buying a non Apple product. Had one of those, they work much better.

    Surprised how much I like it.

    I had used Mophie cases in the past that scratched my phone or the top would get loose and just be an annoyance. Even though I read that this case was ugly and called the hump I thought I'd try it as the other cases didn't work for me. Needless to say it is the easiest case I ever used and I cannot stress how nice not to have to use a micro usb cable just the lightning one. Battery life while traveling has been great and I barely use the internal phone battery most of the time. Nice to be nearing the end of the day and seeing you have 80-90% internal battery than 10% or none at all restricting what you can do with phone. The integration into the notification screen of the battery indicators is great. Not the greatest design Apple has come up with but not bad either. The one cable solution and ease of removal makes this case better than I have ever used hands down.

    Love It!

    The case feels amazing in hand. Software integration is a great benefit. I would recommend this to anyone looking for extra battery life. I could easily go two days without charging if I needed to.

    It is just that simple and smart.

    This is what a battery case should be.

    Easy to snap on, you don't need to worry about anything, and your phone will last longer. THat's it.

    You can easily view the status in the notification screen.

    It will know when to charge the battery or the phone. It will combine the different power saving features on the phone to let you use the phone longer.

    You just plug it in and charge it.

    mAh, how many charges, etc, don't really matter. What matters is a simple add on that will just let you use your phone longer, nothing else to think about.

    It should be that smart and simple.

    Apple embarrassment !!

    While the feel of the case is more pleasing than the third party producti i have used for years.... the case is just unreliable. Randomly and reguarly it will go from BOTH batteries fully charged... and 4 hours later the phone is dead. I strongly thing this case (may just be mine) drains the phone more than it adds to it. I gave 2 other cases to my sister and friend. They both report unimpressive experiences.

    Great job apple

    so far kept my phone damage free . The extended battery is a must . I always missed being able to swap out my battery like I could from my last phone and always felt the 6s was just falling short I. Battery life for me but now I have no fear I know I have the juice to keep going all day and night wish it came in other colors but prob soon to come

    best battery case

    I have used Mophie cases and Otterbox battery cases and none of them holds a charge for as long as this case does. I use my phone pretty much non stop throughout the day from 7 AM to 10:30 PM. Yesterday, at 10:30 PM my phone was at 100% and my case was only down to 35%. Love it!

    Solid...

    Was worried about it 'sticking' in my pocket. But the case is smooth and sleek.

    Love the functionality and ease of use.

    Worth $100. I never think about battery anymore...

    One word: PERFECT!

    I was skeptical about getting this case because of the design but I needed something to make my battery last through the day and I normally ONLY like Apple products so I researched it. Just like with any other product it had negative reviews but the good outweighed the bad. I went into the Apple Store to exchange my charger and EarPods and I decided to make the purchase of my new case. It's day two and I love it. Yes, again the design is a little weird just from looking at it but it feels great in your hand.

    Best Battery case I've ever had for Iphone, and I've had many

    Have had this case for a week now and i would recommend without question. Do not listen to all the haters out there that do no research at all on an items such as this case and just because its from Apple they just want to bash it. The case is just wonderful to handle and many times i even forget its even there. The only negative i have is that it attracts dust particles a little but not a deal breaker for me, just wipe it down evry nite with a damp cloth and its good to go. Having it charge with same lightning cord is a blessing also. Stop watching all the negative videos on YouTube and make the purchase like I did, you will not be sorry. And worst case if you're still not sold, bring it back to apple store and they will reimburse you no questions asked.

    More thought = more customer service

    First off I love this case. Feels good, works great and is very well made. I don't mind the bump. You have to give up something for extra battery life. But what really mugs me off is how Apple just keeps taking the mickey. You can only really use apples own headphones as no others fit. You can't even use the dr beats headphones and they own them. First they could have made it so the headphone socket is extended. But then they offer an adaptor for another £7. So they knew the issue then!? That's just taking the mickey guys. Like when you introduced the Lightning connector. If you just offer an adaptor with it, you know you can afford it in the price, you won't annoy customers. Never ever set out to annoy your customers guys. In the long term it will always impact your reputation. Always. Stop it. Think......

    Works as battery case, but hurts usability.

    Works as advertised and provides the extra juice I need to get through the day. However, I'm someone who previously didn't use a case at all. The added bulk and weight were enough to bother me and cause me to return it. Also, the silicone material made it very difficult to get in and out of my pants pocket, which I do throughout the day. Next phone, I'm just going to get the "Plus" version with its monster battery.

    Form Follows Function

    Great option if you need the additional juice. I do most days. Would take this over a separate battery pack, which I considered along with a Mophie. Pictures make the hump appear huge...not a big deal and actually lends in making the case easier to hold and to lay flat on the backside. Suggest trying one on at Apple Store first...there should be a demo case there specifically for this purpose. Size and feel are good. Does add noticeable weight. Still fits nicely in jeans pocket. Plan to use it during the week when usage is heavy and use my old thin case (or no case) on weekends. Integration with iOS is a big plus.

    Fantastic case

    Just had a mophie for my 5s, but this case beats that case in every way and can see no meaningful benefit of an on/off switch. Charged my 6s and case 100% full Saturday morning and didn't have to charge it until Monday morning with decent usage, internet broswing, checkiing emails, working out with music, etc. Feels great in the hand, looks great imo. The bump actually makes the phone easier to hold than the phone without the case. Uses lightning cable so no need to have microusb and lightning cable if you have an ipad.

    Awesome product for the needy - Highly recommended

    Been using this case for the last 3 weeks and find this product to be extremely useful, it is a class apart compared to all the similar product available in the market, I think utility comes first and then the looks, I feel that the looks are quiet ok. It is a little expensive but still happy with the over all experience. Definitely a good buy !! Highly recommended !

    Battery Case

    i got this case thinking it would be great! I got and it was a lot heavier. i also found that it gets dirty very easily, but it is nice to have the extra battery.
    I also noticed that after putting it on and taking it off a lot there is a little rip!
    i wish there was a switch or some way to turn the case on and off because it never stops charging!!!
    Hope this was helpful.

    Horrible Apple product

    Worst Apple product I have ever purchased. The battery last a few hours at best. Extremely anemic and not remotely worth the price. I keep my phone in low power mode and theiPhone's battery lasts more than twice as long as the extended battery.

    Surprisingly good!

    First review on Apple. I purchased this cases on a whim and to my surprise it's a really good case. It does what it's suppose to do. Yes like many others for commented, it does not have a on and off switch which I thought was odd at first but once you get past what other manufactures doing, you'll realize the thoughtfulness that was put into this case. I was never a fan of Apple's silicon cases but this works seemlessly and it feels great in hand. It's not bulky at all. Rather think of this cases as an external battery case like the way other manufactures are doing It, think of it as a back-up battery case working hormonously. At a full charge on both the case and phone, I get up to 2 days of use. A big improvement from my 8-9 hour usage. Again, this case works great but you have to approach it with an open mind, you won't be disappointed.
