When Apple launched the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro in September, the company’s typical Smart Battery Case for new phones was not found. And to be fair, the battery life in the ranks of the iPhone 11 is good enough, it’s not too clear whether Apple will release a Smart Battery Case.
On Wednesday, Apple secretly released a battery casing for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max for $ 129. All three models are available for order now, with in-store availability on November 26 and deliveries arriving on November 27.
This case is available in soft white or black for iPhone 11, or pink, white or black sand for iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max.
At first glance, the Smart Battery Case looks similar to the battery casing that Apple has sold for previous iPhone models. But there is one feature worth mentioning – the Smart Battery Case has a special camera button that will open the camera application, regardless of whether the iPhone is locked or not.
According to the product description, a quick press of the button will take a photo, while a long press will take a video. This button is located near the bottom of the case on the right side of the iPhone, right where you expect the shutter button on a more traditional camera.
Additional functionality is an interesting addition to the Smart Battery Case, especially considering the focus around the capabilities and features of the new iPhone 11 camera.
