We have been hearing about Apple potentially launching a new Smart Battery Case for its iPhones. For those who wouldn’t mind the added battery life, you’ll be pleased to learn that the cases are now official and they have been launched with support for all three iPhones from 2018. This includes the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR.
In a way it’s actually surprising that Apple bothered to make the cases for all three sizes given that before, the Smart Battery Case’s compatibility was rather limited, but we’re not complaining. According to Apple, “The Smart Battery Case gives you even longer battery life while offering great protection. Inside, a soft microfiber lining helps protect your iPhone. And on the outside, the silky, soft-touch finish of the silicone exterior feels great in your hand. A soft elastomer hinge design makes it easy to put the case on and take it off.”
It should be noted that the cases can be recharged using wireless charging (could this be a sign of the AirPower being launched soon?), meaning that you can charge your iPhone and the case wirelessly at the same time. The iPhone XS case will give users an increase of up to 33 hours of talk time, while the iPhone XS Max version will give 37 hours, while the iPhone XR version will give up to 39 hours of talk time.
