Apple's latest iPhone battery cases add a camera button

Apple's latest iPhone battery cases add a camera button”

However, if you're not content with the battery life on the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, or the iPhone 11 Pro Max, then you can now purchase new battery cases.

The smart cases are priced at $129 (Rs 9200) each, and they come in three colours - Black, White and Pink Sand.

The design of these smart cases are similar to the cases launched past year for the iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

Considering its feature of increasing the battery life for iPhone 11, the iPhone 11 Pro or the iPhone 11 Pro Max smartphones this case is good.

Notably, they are also compatible with Qi-certified chargers for enabling wireless charging.

Apple's smart battery case is convenient, because you don't have to carry a power bank separately.

Moreover, a physical button on the new battery cases automatically opens up the iPhone's camera app even if the phone is locked.

Meanwhile, in terms of basic functionalities, the case will have a microfiber lining on the inside for the phone and silicone case with a soft finish on the outside, as per Apple, for handling. Just like the previous iteration, these battery cases offer protection to the device while increasing the overall battery life. Holding the button allows you to take a photo and a longer hold records a QuickTake video. This is a minor, but welcomed, addition to an otherwise standard battery case. When you attach the cases, they show the battery status on the iPhone lock screen and notification centre. If you have a USB-PD charger, the Smart Battery Case does support fast charging.

This year's case has the same bump at the back, which houses the battery that charges the iPhone, and it's about the same thickness as last year's model.
