Apple has just released the new Smart Battery cases for this year’s iPhone models and while they looked similar to last year’s cases, they have an extra feature — a physical camera button.
The cases for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max will still come in the three colours — Black, White and Pink Sand. Using silicone and a soft elastomer hinge, the case is easy to be taken on/off and has a soft-touch finish.
As the Smart Battery Case is compatible with Qi-certified chargers, users can charge both the battery case and their iPhones simultaneously. When their iPhones are running out of juice, the case will be able to provide up to 50% longer battery life. Putting on the case will also allow users to know the case’s battery status so that it can be charged when needed.
The Smart Battery Case has a camera button that will launch the Camera app even when the iPhone is locked. Pressing the button will let users capture photos while longer pressing will let users shoot a QuickTake video.
Each case will cost RM539 but the colour Pink Sand will not be available for the iPhone 11 Smart Battery Case.
