Well, if you’re having problems choosing a gift for your iPhone-using digital journalist, Apple have just solved the problem for you:
The battery case, which charges with the phone, claims to over double double the talk and data life of the device – which mobile journalists who work in the field regularly will recognise as a huge boon:
Charge your iPhone and battery case simultaneously for increased talk time up to 25 hours, Internet use up to 18 hours on LTE, and even longer audio and video playback.* With the Smart Battery Case on, the intelligent battery status is displayed on the iPhone Lock screen and in Notification Centre, so you know exactly how much charge you have left.
Of course, it would be nice if the phone itself latest longer, but this isn’t a bad solution for £79. It’s certainly more practical than the external battery bank I’ve been using up until now.
(Yes, I’ve ordered one.)
