    Poor quality

    I was used this product for almost a year now. It's ok, the battery are working fine, it boost my iPhone 7 life over a heavy usage for a day, until it start to peel of like almost every reveiew of the product on this site.

    Works Great until 1 Year

    I really liked my Smart battery case for 1 year 20 Days. Then the silicone on the top right corner started to disintegrate without warning. Since then the whole corner has just broken off. Apple claim this is 'wear & tear'. £100 for 1 year use of the product? What a waste.

    iPhone 7 Smart case

    Love it. Thinner than most charging cases and lighter which is really nice. Overtime though the case begins to peal and the silicone starts to come off. Otherwise a great case and I love the battery life.

    Pretty decent case

    I've had this case for a year and a half now.

    Originally when I got it, it was great. I love that I can charge it separately to my phone or together - great for nights out when I'm trying to speed up charging my phone. I think it lasts around 10 hours when I'm constantly on my phone.

    About a year or so in, the case started peeling. Probably due to my carelessness as I drop my phone a lot and the case takes the damage. A year and a half later it has peeled a LOT more and people say I should get a new case - but it doesn't really phase me because it still works the way it's supposed to.

    Two things I don't like:
    1) The fact that my phone is being overcharged ALL THE TIME. A button would be handy.
    2) I'd prefer that the back of the case is the same thickness because it feels weird the way it is.

    TL;DR - If you want a functional case that encourages your laziness, but will obviously deteriorate over time due to normal wear and tear, BUY THIS. It saves lives if you're going to be out of the house a lot.

    ALTERNATIVELY - Buy a phone with a bigger battery capacity in order to avoid needing this case. :)

    Terrible

    The case is breaking down after a couple of months of usage.

    Terrible quality

    Got a bad case of the peels like everyone else who bought this. I'm disappointed that Apple would put its name behind something so shoddy. Makes me rethink buying into their ecosystem.

    Abysmal

    The battery function of this case is brilliant. However the actual case itself is awful. Silicone has torn and is peeling off the case, making it unusable. Apple told me this was normal wear and tear, it is also impossible for the silicone to be replaced. You have to pay for a replacement product at full price as wear and tear isn’t covered in the warranty. If not for the terrible quality of the material used and how short a time period the product has lasted (5 month) this would be a higher rating. But charging me £99 every time, even though only the silicone has broken down rather than the actual battery side of things is unreasonable and inexcusable.

    Very Disappointed

    With many of the reviews on this product I'm very disappointed that I spent so much for something that held up for such a short period of time. The charging aspect is fine. The case itself doesn't hold up. Not cool Apple. I've spent thousands of dollars on your products and feel like I just wasted $100. Where's some buyer loyalty when it comes to replacing a product that you make that evidently isn't up to standard.

    Overcharging?

    The battery case works fine for me but over the time I have had it, my iPhone battery has been fully charged permenantly. Not a problem until my iPhone screen started to lift from the frame. I was told it was a common problem as the iPhone battery expands due to being overcharged! I have ordered a new battery replacement kit at £25 which is much better than having to buy a new iPhone.

    Case Peels

    At first the case was great. Whereas most battery cases require you to flip a switch and charge with micro USB, this case required no work on my part to use and used lightning cables as an input. Win! Then after about 9 months the silicon at the top began to peel. After a year the case looked like garbage. Really disappointed in this poor build quality from Apple.

    Won’t outlast phone

    I am disappointed this case will not outlast my phone. Falling apart and sporadically charges phone after less then a year and a half. Never dropped and just sits in my pocket most of the time.

    Works okay but could be improved

    It’s nice that it uses a lighting cable to charge and also to see the phone and case percentages separately. My only complaint is that it muffles the microphone too much and has to be removed for me to use speakerphone. I also think they could increase the miiliamp hours quite a bit.

    Great idea but is unreliable

    On my 2nd one. 1st one lasted 10 days. 2nd one should be coming in the mail soon. Do your research on these they all seem to go to a point they will no longer take a charge. Then it's just another 9.99 case. There is no support to fix this issue. There are more reliable cases out there for the same money and they last longer than 10-30 days

    Huge Disappointment

    With the price tag being so high, I’m especially disappointed with the quality of this case. Almost every other day, my case will not charge. Sometimes if it does, it won’t charge all the way, and stop mid charge. I love the look and feel, but I’m so disappointed that I spent a lot of money on a case that does not run efficiently.

    External material peels off

    Jan 2016 to Apr 2018 (1yr 3m) - Great battery life, bits consistently peel off to from careful and basic usage.
    May 18 - Battery now will not charge at all.

    Not the longevity I would expect from an £100 product (whether Apple or not)

    Poor Quality

    The charging is terrific, however the case itself is cheaply made. The case didn’t even last 6 months before it started tearing and peeling. This product is not worth the money, until they use a hard case cover or fix this issue I would highly discourage you from buying this case.

    Falls apart faster than Apple power cables

    My review started at a 4.5 for the first week, and has quickly plummetted to one star from there. The extra battery life is great, but it doesnt matter much when your “protective case” is falling apart. This is the second case ive had. They both began deteriorating around the first few weeks.I wish they would fix the case material, because I belive this is the most asthetically pleasing case on the market.

    Excellent Product

    Fits onto the iPhone dock without any issues; ideal for longer days at work or when out.
    Battery % remaining is displayed on notification centre.
    Highly recommended.

    Disappointed

    I’m always a supporter of Apple products, as I find it easy to stand by all their products. But this $100 smart case is just too difficult to even support when it only lasts 5-6 months. The case is shredding apart everywhere, just from taking it in and out of my pocket. Have not once dropped it. I can’t believe I bought the most expensive battery case on the market, and it can’t even compare to a $25-$30 battery case on amazon. I think the thing that really makes me mad, is that the general wear is NOT covered under warranty. Why, Apple? Have spent so much money on your products. I’m so very disappointed.

    Great case overal

    I constantly use my case and it is great for everyday use. I would improve is the way it charges. It can hold it's battery longer than my phone but when it comes to charging it isn't reliable. For my phone the only way it charges is if my phone is on or if I charge it separately. If my phone is powered off my case will not charge at all, and when it's plugged in with my phone connected it takes twice as long to charge.I just got my case replaced 2 days ago because it won't charge, but even though this is my 3rd case since I've payed over $100 to get the case that has a lot of issues. I hope that these issues can be resolved soon.
