Apple Getting Flabby & Desperate - Introducing: the Apple Big Butt Battery for $129
 

 
Apple launches $129 battery cases for iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR

image

Apple has been rumored to be working on battery cases for its latest iPhone XR and XS models for a while, and today, seemingly out of nowhere, the company has made those cases available for purchase on the Apple Store website, as spotted by Joanna Stern on Twitter.

The new battery cases are available for all three of Apple’s 2018 iPhone models for $129, regardless of whether you’re choosing one for an iPhone XS, XS Max, or XR. The cases will also be offered in both black and white silicon designs, and still feature Apple’s distinctive battery hump that it introduced with its earlier battery cases too, albeit with a more tapered design. Unfortunately for older iPhone owners, the product pages specify that the new cases will only work with the those iPhones — meaning that iPhone X owners won’t be able to use the XS case on their phones, despite the nearly identical dimensions.

According to Apple, the new cases are also compatible with Qi-certified chargers, so you’ll still be able to wirelessly charge your phone even with the case on — there’s a separate wireless charging coil built into the case — and that like its recent iPhones, you’ll be able to charge even faster with a USB-C PD compatible charger (along with a USB-C to Lightning cable, of course.)

The company has yet to reveal just how big the extra battery packs are in terms of extra power, but Apple is promising dramatically better battery life, with up to 21 hours of internet use on the XS, 20 hours on the XS Max, and 22 hours on the XR (up from 12 hours, 13 hours, and 15 hours of internet use respectively without the battery case.)

Like Apple’s original battery case, the new models will get the first-party advantage of integrating directly with iOS, allowing for users to check charge on both the case and their phone’s internal battery in places like Notification Center, similar to how connected AirPods and Apple Watch charges can be monitored.

not a bad idea since there are popular 3rd party cases that let you hold a powerbanks doing the same thing. might as well get the money by having an official one.

These are gonna go. Most people that buy iPhones ain't tech savvy. They just gonna see more battery life and cop. They don't know about third party shat. Just what they are given. Hope these betches don't blow up like Samsungs. Airplanes gonna be full of them...

$129 for a battery case for $1,000 phone that claims to have great battery performance. Mprhie doesn't even charge that much for theirs.
This will flop and pretty much admits another L for Apple especially after they had to admit to throttling their phones and as a result had to provide $29 battery replacements for their phones until the end of 2018.

Definitely not going to flop... The Apple iPhone market isn't filled with tech savvy penny pinching individuals. All they're going to see is more battery life, and it's an official apple product. Giving it that extra prestige most of it's users lust for. Just saying... XR might of been a flop (still made money), but simple accessories like airpods, battery life, stupid little dongles that get lost :( are going to succeed.

Apple didn't create the notch, the Essential phone, am Android phone did. So Apple copied it from Android and Samsung still hasn't had a notch

correction.....it SHOULD flop, but anything with an apple logo on it will sell
For my brother and sister, i got them both charging cases for their iphones that were $35-40 and they havent had an issue with them and leave them on their phones all the time as they dont add much size, but i know them, if i didnt show them those, they would of just gone to the apple store and bought the official one and thought it was a deal

Much like the airpods or whatever they are called, they are extremely ugly headphones and cost more than alot of similar headphones, but they put an apple logo on them, and market the hell out of them, and all of a sudden they are a status symbol when really you could of just gotten headphones on amazon for $50 that work just as well

And before anyone says it, yes Samsung users do it too, just not to the extent of apple
