According to the report, Apple is working on a battery pack that can be magnetically attached to the iPhone externally. For the unware, MagSafe is a proprietary standard that Apple uses on chargers to juice up the iPhones wirelessly through a magnetically-attached accessory.

These connectors have also paved the way for other accessories like MagSafe Leather sleeves with attachable wallets. Anyway, the Battery Pack has reportedly been in the works for at least a year which poses doubts on our minds if it will indeed launch.

That said, the reason for the delay seems to be caused by software issues, compatibility & usability when using a case, and more. Speaking of which, this Battery pack wouldn’t serve as a protective case but essentially provide the extra juice for the device.
