Apple has released the new Smart Battery Case for the latest iPhone models
Apple today launched the new Smart Battery Case for iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max for $ 129 .
This year’s cases are similar in style to the cases that were released for the iPhone XR, XS and XS Max, but with a square-shaped clip to fit the dual and triple-lens camera configurations.
The cases are made of silicone with a soft microfiber lining to protect the iPhone and a hinge design in soft Elastoplast to facilitate the application and removal of the case. The Smart Battery Case is available in sand pink, white and black for iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, while the iPhone 11 version is only available in black and white.
The novelty of this year is the dedicated camera button on the case , designed to launch the Camera app whether the iPhone is locked or unlocked. A push of the button takes a picture and a longer press captures the video in QuickTake. Apple says it also works with selfies.
As with last year’s cases, the new Smart Battery Case is compatible with Qi-based chargers so that the case and iPhone can be charged simultaneously. According to Apple, the cases are designed to guarantee up to 50% longer battery life for each iPhone when the case is fully charged.
The Smart Battery Case is deeply integrated in iOS so you can see the battery status on the iPhone lock screen and in the Notification Center, so you can check the charge level at any time.
The new Smart Battery Case is now available for order on the online Apple Store, with delivery scheduled for Friday 22 November.
