Apple has finally launched battery cases for its 2018 iPhone line-up that offers up to 39 hours of talk time.
There had been rumours suggesting Apple had battery cases in the works for their iPhone XS/ XS Max and iPhone XR handsets. In a statement released by the brand, the new smart battery cases are now available for purchase which extends the handset’s battery to as much as 39 hours more worth of talk time (on the iPhone XR).
Engineered for iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR, the Smart Battery Case provide even longer battery life while offering great protection — great for power users or situations where the extra battery is needed, like when travelling. The new Smart Battery Case is compatible with Qi-certified chargers, enabling users to wirelessly charge iPhone and the battery case separately or simultaneously, and can also charge via Lightning cable or fast charge with USB-PD compatible chargers.
Integrated with iOS, the Smart Battery Case intelligently charges iPhone, while the battery charge status is displayed on the iPhone lock screen and in the Notification Centre. These cases feature a soft microfiber lining and silicone exterior that protects iPhone from scratches or drops. A soft elastomer hinge design makes it easy to put the case on and take it off. The new sleek back design blends smoothly at the bottom to fit comfortably in the hand.
The Smart Battery Cases for iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR are available beginning today for USD 129 each (about Rs 9,100). All cases come in black and white and are available for purchase through select Apple Authorised Resellers.
