In the immediate wake of yesterday’s Apple announcement of the iPhone 6 and 6 plus, Slate‘s Lily Hay Newman wrote a piece titled “The New iPhones Will Probably Have Terrible Battery Life.” I have absolutely no trouble believing this as iPhone batteries have always been weak so why should anything change? The only answers for me have been (a) Mophie Juice Packs, which augment the iPhone battery and keep things going a lot longer, and (b) the Jackery portable iPhone charger. Everyone has known for months that the iPhone 6 phones would measure 4.7 and 5.5. inches diagonally so Mophie has had ample time to prepare. I checked this morning to see if their their new iPhone 6 juice packs are ready for sale, and of course they’re not. Can you imagine being the Mophie manufacturing guy now? “I’m trying…we’re running a little behind…it’s hard keeping up with all these sudden changes,” etc.
