Apple might release new Smart Battery Cases to make iPhone 11 battery life even better

  Apple might release new Smart Battery Cases to make iPhone 11 battery life even better A photo of one was found in iOS 13.2The newest iPhones already have pretty solid battery life, largely because the phones are thicker so they can house larger batteries. A new Smart Battery Case would, in theory, make the devices’ battery life even better.

The Smartish Walletslayer case is one of the best iPhone 11 cases for those on a budget. It sells for and holds three credit cards plus cash. Razer, which makes laptops and gaming accessories (among other products), brings its line of "gaming" cases to the iPhone 11 , and they're pretty nice.

Also, since the iPhone 11 comes in a variety of colors people may want to show off, I've included a number of cases that are translucent. If you 're looking for a cheap clear case for your new iPhone 11 , Spigen's Ultra Hybrid is a good value at around $ 11 -, depending on which version of iPhone

It's been just a few months since Apple released the new iPhone 11 , 11 Pro and 11 Max, and since that time, a multitude of cases have arrived to protect them. As always, when the new iPhones arrive every year, I put together a list of my favorite cases, with a focus on those that are relatively slim but offer strong protection and easy charging -- and this time around is no exception. A few budget cases are included, but since this is supposed to be more of a best-of-the-best list, most of my picks tend to cost more than the typical generic case you'll find on Amazon for $20 or less. Also, since the iPhone 11 comes in a variety of colors people may want to show off, I've included a number of cases that are translucent.

If you're looking for a clear case for your new smartphone, you can't go wrong with Speck's Stay Clear case that resists discoloration (yes, cheap clear cases can turn yellow). It has a durable polycarbonate outer shell, provides 13-foot drop protection, and includes Microban antimicrobial product protection. The case also allows for easy wireless charging. List price: $40 (but it's currently on sale for $30). The clear, wireless charging case is available in versions for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.

Apple may sell iPhone 11 and 11 Pro Smart Battery Cases

  Apple may sell iPhone 11 and 11 Pro Smart Battery Cases If you recently purchased an iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro, you may want to hold off buying a case for your new smartphone. Apple may have a Smart Battery Case for its iPhone 11 lineup in the works. 9to5Mac found a photo of the unannounced accessory (seen above) by looking through the code of iOS 13.2, which Apple launched yesterday. In past years, a battery case was almost a necessity if you owned an iPhone. This year, however, Apple went out of its way to make the iPhone 11 lineup thicker so that it could add higher capacity batteries to each of the devices. In fact, battery life is so good on the newiPhones, you may not need or want to buy a battery case.

Otterbox is making its superprotective Otterbox Defender series case for all the brand new iPhone 11 models, but most people want something slimmer. The Symmetry series is slim with beveled edges, making it a good mix of sleek and protective. A raised bumper helps act as a screen protector. Multiple color options are available, including Symmetry Clear as well as the Symmetry Plus Pop case that integrates a PopSockets PopGrip. Prices range from $50 to $60 (AU$59, £29), and they should go down over time.

Gear4 cases

Zagg recently bought top British casemaker Gear4 and is seeking to further build out its brand in the US. In terms of style and protection, Gear4's cases are right there with Otterbox and Speck, all of them lined with the company's D3O shock-absorbing material and featuring beveled edges to protect your phone. My favorites include the translucent Picadilly (also available for Samsung Galaxy) and Crystal Palace cases, as well as the Battersea. They range in price from $35 to more expensive iPhone case options around $50.

Apple's iPhone 11 battery case includes a dedicated camera button

  Apple's iPhone 11 battery case includes a dedicated camera button Apple has introduced new versions of its Smart Battery Cases for the latest iPhones, but this time there's a better reason to buy than just the extra longevity. Its newly-released cases for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max all include a dedicated camera button that can launch the Camera app, take a photo or (if you hold it) record video. The concept of a camera button on an iPhone case certainly isn't new, but this is anApple isn't too specific about the battery life claims for each case. Regardless of the iPhone you have, it's touting up to 50 percent longer battery life in a non-stop video playback test. Your experience is likely to vary if you're using more interested in other tasks.

These are the best iPhone 11 Pro cases for keeping your new phone looking and running like it will on day one. With Apple releasing two impressive smartphones alongside the iPhone 11 Pro , some worried that this phone suffers from middle child syndrome.

Good cheap case

Spigen Ultra Hybrid

If you're looking for a cheap clear case for your new iPhone 11, Spigen's Ultra Hybrid is a good value at around $11-$15, depending on which version of iPhone 11 you have. No drop rating is listed for the case, but it feels like it offers reasonable protection and should appeal to folks who want a case that's neither too thin or too thick (Speck's clear case is a bit thicker and does seem more protective). A lot of these cheaper clear cases have a habit of turning yellow over time (and becoming less translucent), but they're cheap enough that you probably won't mind replacing it if that happens.

Speck Presidio Pro

Speck's Presidio Pro comes in a variety of colors and has a soft-to-the-touch finish that's equipped with Microban antimicrobial technology. It's drop-tested to 13 feet (about 4m) and is one of the best iPhone 11 cases all-around. The case is highly protective with a polycarbonate outer shell, but it's not too bulky. Its thin design makes wireless charging easy.

  X-rays reveal how the shutter button works on the iPhone Smart Battery Case There are some neat electronics in the caseIf you look closely at the picture at the top of this post, you can see two thin circuits running down from the button toward the battery before they take a right turn to the circuit board, which connects to the Lightning port, which transmits data to and from the iPhone connected to the case. Presumably, when you push the button, those circuits are telling the circuit board to tell the iPhone to open up the camera app so you can snap photos.

Clear protection

Lifeproof

Lifeproof, now owned by Otterbox, isn't in the business of making waterproof cases anymore (it only has one case that's waterproof, the Fre), but it still makes very nice cases to protect your iPhone, including the Next and Slam, as well as the new Flip Series that adds a slip-out wallet element that turns into a kickstand. I personally like the Slam best. It costs $46 and comes in a variety of colors and designs. Pair it with their Rewind wall charger for speedy charging.

Moshi has always made attractive cases for iPhones, and its Overture (folio), iGlaze, Vitros and Altra (lanyard included) cases are available for the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. The Overture is actually a two-in-one case that is a great screen protector. You fit your iPhone in a slim shell case that then magnetically adheres to the cover that has slots for storing credit cards and cash. You can buy one in the $25-to-$50 price range.

It comes in several color options (blue and black pictured) for all iPhone 11 models. It's a little pricey at $50, but it does have some nifty extras (like a built-in ring holder and responsive buttons) and a nice design with 10-foot drop protection. You can still charge your phone on a wireless charging pad with the case on.

I also like Skech's clear case, the Echo Air, which costs less ($30).

The leather case runs $50, while the folio version, which has a flap that covers the screen, costs $70.

Adidas-branded cases come in a variety of flavors that offer eye-catching designs that match some of the company's iconic sneakers.

Both those cases include a lanyard that you can choose to attach to the case or not.

Razer, which makes laptops and gaming accessories (among other products), brings its line of "gaming" cases to the iPhone 11, and they're pretty nice. The cases have something called Thermaphene-Based Heat Dissipation that "redirects trapped heat through a thermally conductive lining adjacent to vented airflow channels to significantly improve cooling compared to traditional cases." It's a bit of a gimmick, but it seems to help a little when you're playing graphically intensive games for long periods. The cases start around $20 and come in Pro and Slim versions. I preferred the more protective Pro, which currently costs $28.

Tech21 is also offering the slightly thinner but more colorful Studio series cases, which costs $10 less.

Otterbox's swanky folio case, the Strada, returns for the iPhone 11 line. It's available in brown and black for $50 and $70, respectively, and does a nice job of fully protecting your phone. The only small strike against it is that it doesn't convert into a viewing stand for watching videos. It's probably best suited to the iPhone 11 Pro Max, but it's good for anyone who wants additional screen protection for any iPhone 11 model.

Portland-based Grovemade produces some beautifully crafted wooden cases. Its $60 wood bumper cases are the most affordable, but naturally I'm a fan of its Walnut and Leather Wallet case, which retails for a mere $130 (as a new customer you do get 10 percent off). It's one of the lighter, more refined looking wallet cases you'll find, and also comes in a lighter maple color.
