    Poor quality case

    • Written by David L from Mitcham

    I've had the case for less than 6 months and the case has degraded significantly. This is not covered under the warranty as it's considered aesthetic damage...for a company that puts real emphasis on how it's products look and feel this does not meet the usual standard.

    Not worth £99

    • Written by Vikenty E from London

    It’s pretty and fits very well on the phone.
    Reason why I chose expensive Apple product was because I believe we it would be perfect.
    But my battery case stop charging after 3-4 days of use. I got it replaced by Apple and it’s doesnt charge.
    Most accessories I buy are cheep from amazon, that doesn’t work properly and doesn’t last long so I just keep throwing them in to the bin without caring. But this case costed me £99 that is a bit to much to be throwed to the bin...

    Helps get a days charge out of your phone.

    • Written by Paul R from Maple Ridge

    With the extra battery you nearly get a full days use on one charge.

    What is not good is having to remove the phone from the case to take a call. Every call starts with “sorry can you repeat that you sound all muffled”

    Great idea, lacks longevity

    • Written by Stiven S from Bethnal green

    It’s a very well made and well designed product, stands up to being used daily and fits extremely well on the phone. One of the main benefits is the integration with iOS and that you can use a standard lightning cable to charge it (no messing around with standard usb cables / buying other kit). As others here have noted the issue with this case is its longevity , it just stops working. Mine remains fully charged and never charges my phone now. But says it is charging my phone. Apple keeps telling me to restart my phone, which does nothing and getting support for this case is impossible, the dunniest part of this was trying to read the serial number laser cut into the felt inside the case (impossible). It’s such a shame as usually Apple design and build high quality products that last, this is high quality, it just doesn’t last.

    This phone case is AMAZING!!!!! It charges your phone and case at the same time which is so helpful. I’m a heavy heavy user of my phone and would always be at 20% by midday. It gets to 8pm and I’m still on 60% Charge. I love this case! Fully recommend

    The Case fell apart within a year

    • Written by Jeff B from Milton keynes

    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.

    Excellent. Works better than any other

    • Written by Nick B from Macclesfi

    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 ;-)

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

    • Written by Christian M from Billingshurst

    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.

    The silicone make like small bubles of air and starts to broke quickly, looks terrible and cheap.
