iPhone XR/XS/XS Max Apple battery cases appear

Apple has brought back the bulge. The company is now selling battery cases for the iPhone XR, XS, and XS Max models. These cases support Qi charging and it’s the first time Apple has made a battery case for larger phones. As Juli Clover at MacRumors reports:

Available in black or white, each Smart Battery Case is priced at $129 and is designed to add extra battery life to the iPhone. The cases are similar in design to the past battery case option Apple offered for the iPhone 7, with a bump at the back to house a battery pack.

If you desperately need more battery life out of your iPhone, these may be the cases to get. The previous models, released for the iPhone 6 and 7, were generally considered a cut above other battery cases because of secret software sauce added by Apple.
