Apple has launched its third generation of smart battery cases for the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max.

The new Smart Battery Cases are available in white, black and pink sand for the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max and just white and black for the iPhone 11. All versions are priced at $129 in US.

“Engineered for iPhone 11, the smart battery case gives you even longer battery life while offering great protection. Inside, a soft microfiber lining helps protect your iPhone. And on the outside, the silky, soft-touch finish of the silicone exterior feels great in your hand. A soft elastomer hinge design makes it easy to put the case on and take it off, the company said in a statement on Wednesday.

Apple is reportedly planning to include a custom battery protection module with the iPhone 12, which is said to be almost 50 per cent smaller and thinner than the one being used in current and old iPhones.

The reduction in size could result in more free space for a slight increase in battery capacity,

The smaller module would be supplied by South Korea’s ITM Semiconductor, MacRumors reported recently.

The new module from ITM Semiconductor combines the protection circuit with a MOSFET and PCB, eliminating the need for a holder case.

J.P. Morgan analyst Samik Chatterjee believes that Apple will release a 5.4-inch iPhone, two 6.1-inch iPhones and one 6.7-inch iPhone with 5G connectivity in 2020.

Chatterjee predicts the company may introduce two high-end models (one 6.1-inch and one 6.7-inch) with support for mmWave, as well as a triple-lens camera and “world facing” 3D sensing for improved Augmented Reality capabilities.

While, two low-end models (6.1-inch, 5.4-inch) will not have mmWave or World facing 3D sensing, and will have a dual-lens camera.
