Apple’s iPhone 6S Battery Case – Tim Cook Responds – Plus User Quotes

Mashable caught up with Apple’s CEO Tim Cook who attended one of Apple’s Hour of Code events in New York yesterday.

“Tim Cook said he was aware of the comments people were making about the case. “You know, I probably wouldn’t call it ‘the hump,'” Cook said. Tim Cook then pointed out that the issue with cases, like those from Mophie, are that they are so rigid it takes considerable strength and patience to put them on and take them off.

“If you make this solid all the way across,” said Cook, indicating the spots where the Apple case’s embedded battery stops and you just have the soft fluoroelastomer casing, “in order to get it on, you’d find it very difficult to get it on and off.” “So the guys had this great insight to put the bend in along with making it a smart case,” Cook explained.

Cook also commented on the viewpoint that the case is an admission the iPhone 6s battery is too small, saying most people who charge their iPhones every day won’t need the case. “But if you’re out hiking and you go on overnight trips… it’s kind of nice to have,” he said.”

So there you have it. The case is a design masterpiece. It is better than the design of the Mophie case and actually those that have genuinely bought the case to use it and not mock it deliberately, actually really like it!

  1. 1. Does anyone know the capacity of the battery?
    What is it with Apple, they do this time and again ~ release something but don’t bother to tell anyone any details about it.
    2. I can almost imagine the shareholders prior to release of the 6s ~ “we need to make yet even more ludicrously copious amounts of monies and I have an idea. Let’s reduce the size of the battery and then charge customers for a battery hidden in an attractive case. It’ll sell like a zillion times”!
    Please note, this is all done in a sense of humour and should not be taken as a literal statement.
