Do you ever feel like you run out of space on your iPhone or iPad? Mophie also recognizes this issue and has just announced an update to their line of Space Pack accessories which offer external storage space in increments of 32gb, 64gb, and 128gb. Originally released last year for the iPhone 5/5s, the new line of cases, the update to their Space app has positioned Mophie to start being seriously recognized, not only for their hardware, but also as a software business.
Previously only available for the iPhone 5/5s, Mophie has updated the line up to include the iPhone 6, 6 Plus, and even the iPad Mini. The Space Pack cases include a battery backup with a 100% charge for the iPhone 6 and iPad Mini and a 50% charge for the 6 Plus.
The added storage, along with it’s updated Space app (discussed below), will allow you to store additional photos, videos, music, and documents and have them with you wherever you go.
The cases take a similar design approach from their Juice Pack line, with a bulge in the back and curved on the edges for comfortable ergonomics. The cases include internal bumpers and rubberized support points to protect your device and the iPad Mini version still supports an Apple Smart Cover.
The new update now includes a Wi-Fi Space Portal that allows for secure wireless access, back-up, and transfer between your device and a computer. The best part is that it will not require the case to do so – the app can stand its own ground. They are also releasing their first Android version of the app, which they don’t have Space Pack cases for.
The Space app is meant to be your dashboard, control centre, or central media storage solution. You can transfer files between device and the external storage on the go; that’s an additional 64,000 photos, 56 hours of video, and 36,000 songs, depending on the size of the case you choose.
For the Android users who feel left out or Apple fans who don’t like the extra bulk, the Spacestation is available for you. It’s a separate rectangular unit on it’s on, like carrying around an external battery – it’s everything the case offers without being chained down to a case. It includes a much larger battery at 6,000 mAh, which can give up to a 3X charge, and you’ll be able to connect your device through USB or also have the Wi-Fi Portal option between a computer.
The cases will be available sometime in May but you can pre-order them now, while the Spacestation is available now for order. They start at $149.99 and go up depending on the size you choose.
