The iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro series offers substantial battery life improvements over previous iPhones. However, to please hardcore users, Apple plans to offer a Smart Battery case for these iPhones as well.
Code found in iOS 13 suggests that Apple is working on a Smart Battery Case for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max carrying the code numbers A2180, A2183, and A2184.
The company had launched its Smart Battery Case for the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR last year. While expensive at $129, the Smart Battery case more than doubled the battery life of these phones which was a major selling point for many. The improvement did come at the cost of thickness and additional weight but most power users who were always on the go were seemingly fine with this trade-off.
It is unclear when Apple will release the Smart Battery case for the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro series. The Smart Battery Case for the iPhone XS and iPhone XR launched almost four months after their release. However, since the code for the battery case has been found inside iOS 13.1, it is possible that Apple will release it before this holiday season.
Will you buy a Smart Battery case for your iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro despite the phones offering superior battery life?
