Battery cases for iPhones have been around in the market for quite some time now. Companies like Belkin, Mophie and PhoneSuit have been coming out with accessories for iPhone for long. This time Apple has itself taken a move and launched its very own Smart Battery Case.

Apple is already selling the $99 case on its online stores. The description says it is engineered specifically for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s to give longer battery life and protection. Apple says the case can offer as much as 25 hours of increased talk time, 18 hours internet use on LTE, and up to 20 hours of video playback.

The battery case is made of soft touch silicon with a microfiber lining on the inside for device protection. What is interesting in this case is that an iPhone can slide into it straight without having to separate into pieces as is the case in third-party battery cases.

The Smart Battery Case can be charged using a standard lightning port and both the iPhone and the case can be charged simultaneously. The case will be available in white and charcoal grey colours. However, there is no word yet on such a case for iPhone 6s Plus or iPhone 6 Plus.
