    Default Battery case

    Is anyone else slightly jealous there's no battery case by apple for the new 7 plus? I would have definitely picked one up instead of the leather. On the other hand I'm excited about my upcoming 256gb matte black 7 plus.

    I'm not jealous one bit. In fact, my iPhone's battery typically last me an entire day so I don't have a need for a battery case...

    I use it for my 6S and I don't get anywhere near 2 days of not having to charge. I still end up charging every night. All it does is prevent me from having to keep putting it on the charger during the day. I just use my phone a lot.

    I use a sleep app on my iPhone so it's next to my bed charging all night. The nice thing about the sleep app, it stops all noises / dings / texts etc.. so makes sleeping with a phone next to your bed easier. I seldom run lower than 70% no matter how much I use the phone in 1-day.

    Coming from an iPhone 6, I have to say I am really looking forwards to the battery life on the 7 plus.

    However, a battery case would be rather nice to keep in my bag for those odd moments I need it and a battery pack is not an optimal substitute.

    My wife and I both use "Sleep Cycle" and it's been quite good and accurate. There has been a few times we got (what we thought) was good sleep and it gave us a lower number than expected. But not often.

    Not particularly, no. My wife had the battery case on her iPhone 6S, and while she is kind of hard on her phones, she's not negligent with them. The thing does not take drops or dings very well, and ended up not working properly to the point where she had to have it replaced twice, and on the 3rd one, when it began to have the same issues, she just took it back and (thankfully) got a refund from Apple on it. The material the last generation battery case was made of was not very durable from her experience, and it would cause charging issues many times (sometimes the case would charge but not the phone, sometimes neither would charge at all but would show a charging icon on the screen).

    I wouldn't buy the case even if it was available for the Plus, and like others have reported, I've really never needed the extra battery life on most days.

    I'll leave the imagining to others. I'm content knowing I can go a full day without having to charge the battery on my iPhone. If Apple can develop a battery that can last longer, great. If not, no biggie.
