Now available for 549 AED.
Apple’s own Smart Battery Cases are back, now compatible with the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max. While the design of the Smart Battery Case won’t win awards, this year’s version has one nifty feature – a camera button.
The new camera button is located on the bottom of the case, the same side as the power button. This dedicated camera button will instantly launch the Camera app when pressed and can also be used as a shutter. It will also take a QuickTake video when you press and hold and it also works on the front camera.
Other than that there aren’t really any major changes in the design of the Smart Battery Case: soft silicone lines the exterior with a Lightning port located at the bottom. It’s also compatible with Qi wireless chargers and USB-PD chargers for fast wired charging.
Third-party battery cases are also available, though some users prefer the Smart Battery Case’s integration with iOS where you can see the battery levels inside the Notification Center.
No exact figures were released, but Apple is saying that you’re getting a 50 percent increase in battery life. Priced at 549 AED, the Smart Battery Case is available in soft white and black for the iPhone 11, and in white, black and pink sand for the iPhone 11 Pro / iPhone 11 Pro Max.
