Apple offers its Smart Battery Case for iPhone owners providing extended battery life throughout the day. Well, the company has now taken the wraps off the Smart Battery Case for the 2019 iPhone lineup including the iPhone 11, 11 Pro as well as the 11 Pro Max. The Smart Battery Case for the iPhone 11 comes in Soft White and Black colors, whereas iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max owners can get it in Pink Sand, White, and Black colors.
In terms of internal features, this battery cover wirelessly charges your iPhone as it runs out, allowing you to have enough battery left on your phone to last a day or even more. What’s new with this particular battery case is the fact that it includes a dedicated camera button that lets you directly launch the camera app regardless of whether the phone is locked or not. Further, Apple mentions that this works for selfies too. A quick press will reportedly take a picture while a slightly longer press will record a QuickTake video.
In terms of actual battery performance, Apple mentions that a fully charged Smart Battery Case can increase the battery life of your iPhone by 50%. The case can be charged using fast USB-PD chargers or the Lightning port offered onboard. It also supports wireless chargers, so you can juice up the battery case with your existing Qi wireless charger.
The Smart Battery Case will set you back by $129 regardless of which model or color you choose. The price tag here is only slightly higher compared to Mophie’s Juice Pack battery cases for the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro models. Since this comes officially from Apple, it’s well worth the premium you’re paying. You can get the Smart Battery Case from Apple’s online and retail stores.
