    Apple, on November 20, launched its lineup of battery cases for the latest iteration of iPhones – the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and the 11 Pro Max. They resemble last year’s cases, but feature a larger camera cutout to accommodate the protrusion that houses the new cameras. They are available in the same colours as last year’s versions – white, black, and pink. Wireless charging is also supported.

    Moreover, a physical button on the new battery cases automatically opens up the iPhone’s camera app even if the phone is locked. If the phone is turned around horizontally for a landscape shot, one’s right index finger would naturally rest right near the button, making it easier to shoot on the go without unlocking the phone. Holding the button down will result in a video being recorded using the QuickTake feature that debuted on the 2019 range of iPhones.

    Double tapping the power button launches the camera app, helping users shoot frames on the go.Agencies

    The new battery case costs USD 129, irrespective of the model of the iPhone one is perusing. Apple said that battery life will be enhanced by up to 50 per cent if the cases are used. The iPhone 11 series offers significantly better battery life when compared to its predecessors, and a battery case would augment its already impressive performance.

    They can come in handy when on extended trips like camping or hiking, or when one is traveling to colder climes where battery discharge is faster.

    Additional to lending the device extra ruggedness and battery life, the new case offers extra functionality to enhance the photography experience using the device. As Android users will be wont to know, double tapping the power button launches the camera app, helping users shoot frames on the go. Apple will be hoping that the new battery case will be a hit with photography enthusiasts.
