Apple Launches iPhone 11 Smart Battery Cases with Dedicated Camera Button

Apple has just launched Smart Battery Cases for iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max priced at $179 in Canada ($129 in the USA). 

The new Smart Battery Cases are available in black, white, and pink sand colour, and are currently showing delivery in 1 business day.

According to Apple, “the Smart Battery Case gives you even longer battery life while offering great protection. Inside, a soft microfibre lining helps protect your iPhone. And on the outside, the silky, soft-touch finish of the silicone exterior feels great in your hand. A soft elastomer hinge design makes it easy to put the case on and take it off.”


The design of these cases looks like Smart Battery Cases of prior years, sporting a ‘hump’ on the back. What’s new this year, however, is “a dedicated camera button” that launches the Camera app whether the iPhone is locked or unlocked. A quick press of the button takes a photo and a longer press captures QuickTake video.

If you need extra battery life, Apple’s Smart Battery Cases seamlessly integrate with iOS, but at $179 CAD each, they are definitely on the premium side. Let us know if you’ll be picking up one in the comments section below.
