X-ray shows how the camera button of the Smart Battery Cases of the iPhones 11 and 11 Pro works

The news Smart Battery Cases To the iPhones 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max arrived last week with a little surprise: the addition of a special button for the camera devices, which serves as quick access to the application (when outside it) or as a trigger button.

Everything is very beautiful, but the question remains: how does this little button work, considering that it does not have a counterpart in the body of the iPhone itself? THE iFixit she took it upon herself to find the answers to that question – and, I must say at once, we have no big surprises here.

The repair company did an X-ray analysis of the new Smart Battery Case and found out how it works: we have, in the accessory, a small circuit board which connects to the button and the Lightning connector on the case’s “chin” – the connection, in turn, ensures that the special button commands are sent to the iPhone.

The button itself, iFixit notes, is slightly recessed from the case surface and requires you to press it for a few moments to activate it – all so that you don’t accidentally open the camera in your pocket or purse, for example.

Apart from that, there is nothing particularly remarkable about this new version of the Smart Battery Case: all models have a battery of 10.9Wh (divided into two cells) and not much more internal components – which is obvious, since the idea here is to include as much extra life as possible for your iPhone.

It’s enough, isn’t it?
