While the case retains the same physical size, Apple has been able to boost the battery from 1,877 mAh to 2,365mAh. That’s an increase of 26 per cent.

iPhone 7 battery cases have been in the news this week, with one solution integrating a 3.5mm headphone jack, following Apple decision to unceremoniously drop the century-old technology.
