Apple first launched its smart battery case for the iPhone 6/6s in 2015 and followed up with the iPhone 7 a year later. However, Apple did not release one for the iPhone 8 and iPhone X for some reason. Now, Apple finally announced three new smart battery cases for this year’s iPhones.
The new case comes with either black and white. You will need to get different models of cases for the iPhone XR, iPhone XS and XS Max. The cases are not interchangeable. The design of the smart battery cases are identical to previous one. A relatively large bump at the lower part of the case houses the lithium-ion battery, but it stretches all the way to the bottom this time.
According to Apple, the iPhone XR case will provide an additional 39 hours of talk time, 22 hours of Internet use and 27 hours of video playback. The iPhone XS case adds 33, 21 and 25 hours to each category, while the iPhone XS Max at 37, 20 and 25 hours. The new smart battery cases also support Qi-certified wireless chargers and USB-PD compatible fast chargers, which can charge both the case and the phone simultaneously.
Each smart battery case costs $129 USD (MSRP), and $30 USD increase from prior cases. They are available in Apple’s online store starting from 18 January.
