The news Smart Battery Cases, created for the XS, XS Max and XR iPhones, were released by Apple in mid-January. There in the United States, the new line of accessories became available as soon as it was launched; Here in Brazil, however, this type of product needs to be screened by the National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel).
This happened earlier this week, and at the time we commented that everything now depended solely on Apple. For today, just three days after approval, Smart Battery Cases are available for purchase.
Regardless of the model chosen, the value the same: R $ 1,079.10 (view) or R $ 1,199.00 (in installments at 12x).
According to Apple, the case batteries have the following specifications:
As we talked about, the new Smart Battery Cases are compatible with standard Qi chargers, so you can recharge your iPhone and case at the same time in a wireless charger at a good rate. The smart battery status is displayed on your iPhone Lock Screen and Notification Center so you know exactly how much charge you still have on the accessory.
In addition, it features a Lightning port at the bottom where you can use traditional, fast recharging (USBPD) chargers, Lightning connector headsets and even a Lightning to Digital AV adapter.
It is worth noting that the case for the iPhone XS works perfectly in the X model, but it works. This is because the camera housing is not aligned (since there is a slight difference in the camera structure of the handsets); Also, as the design of the bottom of the devices differs (the piercing of the speakers due to a new antenna that exists in the XS), the case is not visually perfect on X. In addition, an alert may appear on iOS. warning that the Smart Battery Case is not compatible with iPhone X, but you just have to ignore that the accessory will work. 😉
