For those who don’t know, earlier this week, Apple launched its ugliest invention ever, the official iPhone battery case –  a solution that gives you longer lasting batteries on your iPhone. However, instead of getting a warm reception, it got a lot of criticisms online  –  Forbes called it “an angry, ugly mess.” The Wall Street Journal called it “funny-looking” and “fairly unsightly,” and even Cult of Mac—a popular Apple fanboy website—called it “butt ugly.”
