iPhone Xr Battery Case

Apple has introduced new Smart Battery Cases designed for iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR. The design of the cases is similar to the past battery case option Apple offered for the iPhone 7 with a bump to add the extra battery pack and each offer varied battery life depending on the device. 

The iPhone XS Battery Case offers up to 33 hours of talk time, up to 21 hours of internet use, and up to 25 hours of video playback. The iPhone XS Max Smart Battery Case offers up to 37 hours of talk time, up to 20 hours of internet use, and up to 25 hours of video playback. While the iPhone XR Battery Case offers up to 39 hours of talk time, up to 22 hours of internet use, and up to 27 hours of video playback.

iPhone XS Battery case

Apple hasn’t introduced a smart battery case since the launch of iPhone 7, mostly because of the introduction of wireless charging since the iPhone 8. There hasn’t been a battery case for larger iPhones, with prior cases limited to the iPhone 6/6s and iPhone 7. Apple’s product listings also confirm that the new Smart Battery Cases are compatible with Qi-certified wireless chargers.

The new Smart Battery Case provides an intelligent battery status on the iPhone’s Lock screen and in Notification Center so you’re aware of the remaining charge of the device and case. All the three battery cases for iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR are priced at $129 (Rs.9,160 approx) each and are already on sale through Apple website.
