Mophie launches new storage-expanding cases for iPhone 6, iPad mini

The new Space application has been redesigned to work without any of Mophie's Space hardware, though it still works best with accessories like the new Space Packs for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. You can also create a favorites collection for your music, videos, and other files for easy access in the app. You can find the full list of changes below:

Stands Alone : mophie Space 2.0 can now be used without the need for a space pack or spacestation.Wi-Fi Space Portal: Wirelessly access files from a Mac or PC – like a cloud storage service without the internet.Favorites Collection: Now, all your favorite photos, videos, music, documents, and files can be found in one place – the Favorites Collection. It's your own custom collection.Touch ID: For Apple Touch ID equipped iPhones and iPads, you can now secure and access files stored on your mophie space pack with just your fingerprint.Built for iPhone & iPad: mophie Space now runs beautifully on iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, and all iPad models.New Design: From the new main menu, to Spaces and the new Activities Center, mophie Space has a new look and feel that will help you find, access, or share your files faster.

While the Space app no longer needs to use any of Mophie's hardware, it works best when it does. To that end, Mophie has introduced a number of new accessories to their Space line of products, including new Space Pack cases for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, along with a Space Pack for the iPad mini and the Spacestation external battery and storage device.

The Space Packs for the iPhone 6, 6 Plus, and iPad mini, as well as the Spacestation, all come with 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB of extra storage, accessible through the Space app. Mophie says that the cases for the iPhone 6 and the iPad mini will add 100% extra battery life to those devices, while the Space Pack for the iPhone 6 Plus is supposed to add 50%. The amount of battery life added by the Spacestation will of course vary based on your device.

Mophie lists the Spacestation as shipping in one to two business days for $149.95. The Space Pack cases for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are expected to ship in late May for $149.95, while the iPad mini Space Pack is set to start shipping in two weeks for $199.95.
