    Now all the crybabies about the iPhone6 battery and protruding camera can shut the hell up.


     

    And those crybabies have had such a negative impact on iPhone sales too. Not! This is the Internet in the 21st century. Every crybaby, screwball, troll, critic, sad-sack, Debbie Downer, glass-half-empty nincompoop thinks they can influence the company or hurt it with their negativity. Well they can’t and that makes them irrelevant and laughable.

    Unfortunately, it appears that neither of these cases uses the Lightning connector for re-charging but instead rely on on a micro USB connector. Apple recently started allowing licensees to use the female Lightning connector on products for this very reason.

    Maybe paying for the license would've driven the price up too high.

    I was bummed out about that too. Keep getting the "this device may not be compatible" with my current Mophie case. Rather annoying. But like the poster below you mentioned, likely to expensive to license.

    Shame about that protruding camera.

    I don't want a pimple on my iPhone.

    It's not so much the expense, although that's a factor, it's also parts availability. If Apple only recently changed policy to make it available, these products were designed before it was an option. Parts are only now becoming available for third party use, which would mean these products would have had to ship even later if the companies wanted to redesign their products and wait around for parts to be supplied in quantity.
