iPhone Smart Battery Case

At long last, the not-a-Nexus-but-kind-of Google Pixel C Android tablet has been unleashed upon the world. It's an interesting, if occasionally confusing and frustrating affair — not unlike the also-just-released Sony Xperia Z5 Premium.

Speaking of confusing, Apple did some of that themselves by releasing their first iPhone battery case, the "Apple iPhone Smart Battery Case", which sent the tech internet into a tizzy over its new polarizing design.

Microsoft pounded the internet pipes last week, pushing out updates for both Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile, and for the first time demonstrating their new ability to push updates to Windows Phones without getting hung up by the carrier approval process. Oh, and the Band 2 got music controls through an update and Microsoft backtracked a bit on changes to OneDrive.

All of this — and more — is just a click away in this edition of Mobile Nations Weekly!
