Some time ago it became known that Apple plans to release a new version of Smart Battery Case that will be compatible with frameless Apple smartphones. A hint of the appearance of the accessory has been found in one of the test assemblies watchOS 5.1.2.
Today it became known, how it will look like updated Smart Battery Case. According to the picture shared resource Appleosophy, brand new iPhone case with an extra battery should have smoother contours. Because of this it will be easier to hold in hands. However, in addition to the changes on the back of the case, some changes should occur in the front part. In particular, the frame in the lower part may become smaller.
Also on the published image you can see the mark “leather”. Some see it as a hint that one of the versions of the updated Smart Battery Case may be made of leather.
Separately it is noted that initially cupertinos had planned to show a new case with built in battery this fall. It suggests the published document. However, the release of the accessory did not take place. It is likely that Apple simply didn’t manage to release the cover in time. Therefore, the company has decided to postpone its output on the first half of next year.
