    The smart battery case is just available for iPhone 6/6s sizes. Who think Apple should do a version of that cases for the Plus models?

    No. Battery is much better on the plus anyways and also that phone would feel like a tank with battery case on it. I don't think apple wants to go that direction.

    I agree. The Plus is huge enough as it is!

    the actual Apple battery already made the 6/6s look like a tank.

    I would love to go between days before needing to charge my 6s plus, so yes, I'm def into battery case for the 6/6s plus. It's always good to have the choice than to not have I think.

    Nope.

    Two reasons.

    1. I don't think the phone needs it, it's optimized enough to get more than a full day of usage. You have to be a heavy power user to want more juice and frankly for the money there are many cheaper power solutions.

    2. If Apple's Smart battery case for the 6S was any indication on how they would design it, I wouldn't want it. I'd wait for a 3rd party to develop one that fits the ergonomics of the phone. One has already done it with the 6S, I don't see why the couldn't do it with the 6S+.

    Mophie already has a good lineup. The juice pack H2PRO is actually pretty cool; it has a 2,950mAh battery and its waterproof. We spend a good amount of time at the beach so I can definitely see the value there. At $130 it's expensive.
    Here's Mophie's lineup:

    Yeah I can't even begin to imagine a 6S Plus wrapped in a battery case.

    It would be way too big. I stopped using battery cases after the 5s because of the size.

    I wouldn't mind more battery as with my use I have to charge mid day on my 6s plus every day. Bluetooth is my main drain I'm sure but need to be hands free during work with my lg tones

    I don't see why not. In what way does it not benefit Apple? They make some margin and in the meanwhile those who want it will buy it, and those who don't want it don't have to buy it. Simple as that.

    They could just make a phone that already has good battery life....instead of making an accessory that seems desirable because the phone has sub-par battery life.

    Thankfully the 6S+ has good battery life so wanting a battery case is really for a smaller minority than it was for owners of the regular 6 or 6S.

    Everything is an economy of scale. They have to sell a certain amount to make a profit. My guess is Apple simply doesn't feel that it's worth making.

    I don't. I mean, if they opted to make one for the Plus devices, that would be fine, but I don't think they "should" have to.

    As an iPhone 6s Apple battery case owner I must say it would be too big and heavy to be useful.
