Thanks to information obtained by the American portal 9to5Mac we have been able to know that Apple would be preparing the launch of a new case with integrated battery compatible with the i Phone XS, XS Max and even with the XR.
The news of possible new battery cases comes just days after Apple launched the first official case for the iPhone XR.
Three years ago, to coincide with the launch of the iPhone 6s, Apple launched an official silicone case with a built-in battery. These cases, called Smart Battery Case , were a great idea for those who spend hours away from home and do not have a socket nearby to charge their devices.
These battery-powered iPhone cases are very practical, but not very ergonomic . And although their design was not far from the classic Apple silicone cases, it was strange to look at because in a way it was like seeing a classic swollen case.
As the images of 9to5Mac show, the new Smart Battery Cases show a small change in design that would make the cases more ergonomic as well as disguising the batteries that are built in. Comparing both models, it can be seen that the vacuum at the bottom of the old Battery Cases has disappeared to give a bigger size to the battery and therefore a higher capacity of it.
The references found regarding the dimensions of these covers were 5.8; 6.1 and 6.5 inches . Therefore, these are the exact sizes of iPhone XS, XS Max and XR respectively. would also be compatible with the iPhone X as this 2017 model shares dimensions with the 5.8-inch version of the XS. It should be noted that Apple did not previously have a battery case for the larger iPhones and now it seems that it will accommodate them.
Another piece of information that 9to5Mac would have obtained refers to the launch date of these new products and is nothing less than 2018 . And while it is true that we are already at the end of the year, it would not be surprising if they were to be released in the next few weeks and even days to be ready for the Christmas campaign. We must remember that the first versions of the Smart Battery Case launched in 2015 were in December, the same month in which the AirPods arrived on the market a year later.
