Here’s some information to note about these new Apple battery cases.

 

Each model has slightly different promises for extended use of your device:

 

iPhone XS Max:

 

  • Talk time up to 37 hours

 

  • Internet use up to 20 hours

 

  • Video playback up to 25 hours

 

iPhone XS:

 

  • Talk time up to 33 hours

 

  • Internet use up to 21 hours

 

  • Video playback up to 25 hours

 

iPhone XR:

 

  • Talk time up to 39 hours

 

  • Internet use up to 22 hours

 

  • Video playback up to 27 hours

 

These are the first battery cases Apple has released since their iPhone 6/iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 models. The new versions are compatible with Qi-certified wireless chargers and are made of the same non-slip silicone that the earlier versions were made of.

 

Our iOS technician Fred said, “This is exciting because they released it for the XR and that phone already has a 24-hour battery and these cases are predicted to double that. Also, this is the first time making these Smart Battery Cases for any plus size phones.”
