Apple launched battery cases for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max today. The new cases feature a dedicated camera button that can snap a photo or start recording video without the need for launching the Camera app or unlocking the device. The cases are priced at $129.

Battery cases for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max landed today, and they have a nice surprise for avid photographers. 

The new cases look identical to last year’s design save for a small button located on the side. When pressed, this button snaps a photo without the need for unlocking the phone. A longer press will start recording video via QuickTake. According to Apple, the dedicated camera button “works for selfies, too.” 

Otherwise, the silicone battery cases are the same as last year’s. They still support Qi wireless charging, still have a Lightning port for charging, and still have the same ugly bump that holds the physical battery. The price is the same as last year’s, too; you’ll need to shell out US $129 for “up to 50% longer battery life,” according to Apple.

What do you think of Apple’s battery case? Is it a good value, or is it overpriced? Let us know in the comments.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
