    The Case fell apart within a year

    It works as an extra battery really well but within a year it became very brittle and the sides started to snap off. Apparently this isn’t covered under warranty as Apple put it down to general wear and tear. It’s a lot of money for 10 months use.

    iPhone 6 smart case better than 7's

    I've had a chance to try this year's smart charging case and last year's. Was highly disappointed the rubber for the iPhone 7 case started to tear apart. Get your stuff together and please fix this material. Worst part is I can't even get an exchange or a refund so that's $120 down the drain.

    Falls apart

    I almost never write reviews but this is bad. It falls apart so quickly. Apple, you really need to fix this. It’s embarassing this company released something so poorly made.

    Breaks apart

    I've had this case for several months now, and the case is literally peeling and coming apart. I'm not rough with my phone and I don't even drop it. This case is not worth the money. It would be a wonderful case if it didn't break. I'm extremely disappointed because now I've wasted $99. On top of it breaking, it feels like the battery on my phone is deteriorating at a quicker pace than usual. The case also gets oily very quickly. If I leave it face up at night it will get a weird oily residue on it. Don't get this case. Save yourself the money just get some mophie case or something else. I wish I could get a refund or something honestly.

    Awful quality

    Had this case for about nine months, daily use. After about two months the connection would go in and out of connection, which would cause th screen to constantly turn on when it would reconnect. This would also wreak havoc if the phone was docked on my computer or in my car. The connection was always terrible (as the lightening cables always have been) and would sometimes connect and sync in my car and other times not. And god forbid if you brush the phone with your wrist while synced to the car, the case will disconnect and thus end the wired sync.

    But even worse (maybe) is the quality of the materials. About 6 months after daily use the silicone began wearing off the corners. Soon after the non-reinforced sides between the corners and the volume/power buttons cracked, tore and eventually just pulled away completely.

    It's really too bad because the design is capital, but quality is dog waste.

    Almost a year strong but..

    I've read some of the other reviews about their cases only lasting them 3 or so months but that hasn't been the case for me. I got both my iPhone and charger case back in November of 2016 & I really like it a lot, I don't really use it too much because I use other cases but the only downfall that I will say about the white case is an obvious thing, it gets dirty very easily and I'm not trying to sit here and buy it for the full price of $99 (the guy at Verizon gave me a discount) because it serves it's purpose and it will last me at least a good day or at least until I have to go to bed. The only reason why I gave this case a 4 star is because it's almost impossible to clean, I've tried cleaning it with bleach and even the magic eraser but nothing works, I'm really not sure how one could clean the white case as soon as it gets dirty.

    battery case

    Its a great case at first but it wears around the top where you remove it and pretty much breaks and wears over time. Only had it a little over a year and didn't use it everyday either. A bit disappointed with it, i thought it would have wore better.

    Caught up in the hype

    I have everything Apple, computer, apple tv, and iPhone, and I thought Apple could do no wrong. Well, I found a product that I am not satisfied with. For the first few months it was great but recently I have had issues with it disconnecting throughout the day. It seems that the connection port has an issue. Because of this it also has issues with headphones and when I make calls the other end can't hear me.

    Excellent. Works better than any other

    The case does exactly as described and unlike competitors, charges the phone as you charge the case. no buttons or switches. It just permanently keeps your phone fully charged. I use my phone often and the case is usually still on around 10% charge when I go to bed and the phone is still at 100%. Very impressed, well done apple. I still think you should have called it "Apple Juice" though ;-)

    Quits Charging

    Well, for the month that this case worked I do have to admit it was a great battery case to have. That being said the case only worked for a month and will not charge at all at this point. The case hasn't taken any water damage, fall damage, etc. it just refuses to charge which defeats the purpose in buying this battery case. I did not heed the warning of the other reviews that the battery would stop working quite quickly, but it does. Buyers beware, the battery will quit charging and it's not worth the $100. One very disappointed apple customer!

    This is the best battery case to buy because it has a great feel for the hand and it gives me MUCH MORE battery than the Mophie charging cases. I bought the iPhone 7 battery case from apple and I used my phone non-stop for three days without having to charge it. It has great durability (my phone never broke) and it has lasted great over time. There was a tiny bit of wearing down at some of the corners, but it bearly shows. I love this case and I would recommend this case to almost anyone who needs more battery. The only thing that I would suggest is to make the actual phone battery last longer without apple making it bulkier. The design is DEFINITELY NOT the worst. I AM COMPLETELY IN LOVE WITH THIS CASE!!!

    Do not buy this!!!!!!

    After four months it stopped working. I took it to the apple store and they said they only return it within two weeks. Save yourself the grief and buy a cheaper one that only lasts a few months.

    Case will fall apart

    I owned the smart battery case for the 6/s and loved it. This one for the iPhone 7 fell apart and ripped around the volume up/down within a few months of use. I think a $99 case should hold up better.

    It's been really useful, but the case does degrade

    The good stuff about it is great. A full day+ hard phone usage (between case and phone). Seamless integration with iOs, One port for everything. Good protection for the phone itself.
    The less good stuff - it can be temperamental. Disappearing from the iOS and occasionally refusing to take a charge at all (and variations of that theme such as only willing to charge when docked with the phone - you should be able to charge it independently)
    High power drain uses cause the pins to discolour and wear out. I fried my first smart battery case using my iphone as a hotspot for an extended period while using the case. I got a new case from Apple.
    Lastly, as others have noticed, it is just a shell of silicone rubber and it will wear fairly fast. 8 months in and my top left and right corners are all worn off and the silicone is peeling from the plastic frame across the middle. This is minor and cosmetic. What Apple have created here is absolutely fit for purpose and has revolutionised the useful daily life of my phone, it just won't stay pretty for as long. That's a perfectly acceptable tradeoff for me personally.

    complete garbage

    what happened with quality control? the case will start peeling within 2 month and will eventually rip. For $100 it doesnt even deserve 1 star. Never buying apple accessories.

    Not as good as the mophie

    I don't understand, whis on first. I purchase this case thinking it was like the mophie case I purchase for my iPhone 6. Why would you make a battery case for a phone with the juice coming and depleting from the case first and then the Phone? My case is on the phone and the battery life reads 100% phone and 35% case.... so do I have take off the case to charge it? If not will it over charge the Phones? And how does this effect the battery life of the phone? Why does the the battery light stay "green" even after it is completely charged?.
    None of this make sense... somebody explain

    Works great!

    Bought my case from Best Buy a few days ago. The seamless integration with iOS is a must have -- iOS detects that this isn't just any old battery case, it's Apples smart battery case and includes a ton of functionality in terms of battery saving other from what you'd get with a regular off brand one. Go ahead and look up the pros and cons online. It's a great case. Definitely worth it.

    The only thing I have ever regretted buying from apple.

    It's a great case for the first few weeks. After that? Terrible. I am on my second battery case this year and the second one is already randomly disconnecting throughout the day. I haven't dropped either case and there is no debris in the connector. Going to make another trip to the Apple Store and get another one. Thank god there is a warranty ��...
