Yesterday, Apple launched its Smart Battery Case for the iPhone 6s, prompting the entire Internet to gawk at what's now forever known as "the hump" (the protrusion on the back of the case). If you're curious on the design reasons for it, Apple CEO Tim Cook has an explanation.




"If you make this solid all the way across, in order to get it on, you'd find it very difficult to get it on and off," he says. "So the guys had this great insight to put the bend in along with making it a smart case."


Simple enough.
