Apple today dropped its newest Smart Battery Case for the iPhone 11 series. It’s much like its predecessors, but this time around it has a new button that provides instant access to your camera.

You can order yours today for $129.

The iPhone 11 lineup delivers the best battery life we’ve seen from an Apple handset to date. They last a lot longer than previous models in between charges. But it’s still not enough for some.

If you still find yourself running out of juice before your day is done, you need Apple’s new Smart Battery Case.

Smart Battery Case comes to iPhone 11

Available in black or soft white for iPhone 11, and black, soft white, or pink sand for iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, the new Smart Battery Case promises up to 50% longer battery life.

That means longer talk time, internet use, and longer audio and video playback. And because the Smart Battery Case is made by Apple, you can keep an eye on its battery status right inside iOS.

And when it’s time to top-up, you can use Qi wireless charging or a Lightning cable. The Smart Battery Case supports fast charging with compatible USB-PD charging adapters.

The case is designed to protect your iPhone. It sports a smooth silicone exterior and a soft microfiber lining that will lovingly cradle your handset and keep it free from scratches.

A dedicated camera button

Apple’s newest Smart Battery Case features a dedicated camera button for the first time. It launches the Camera app in an instant, whether your iPhone is locked or unlocked.

You can then use a quick press to snap a photo, or hold down the button to capture QuickTake videos. It works when you’re using your iPhone’s front-facing selfie camera, too.

You can order your Smart Battery Case for iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, or iPhone 11 Pro Max today from the Apple Online Store. It’s priced at $129, no matter which model you need.
