Apple Resellers Documentation Leaks iPhone XS Smart Battery Case Design

Earlier this month, it was reported that Apple plans to debut the Smart Battery Case for iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and XR. Today, our friends at Appleosophy found photos of the iPhone XS smart battery case in the Apple resellers documentation, which tells resellers how to organize their Apple silicone and leather cases for the fall 2018 season in their stores.


From the photo, we can see that two of the cases clearly have a battery pack hump and a cutout for the vertically-aligned rear camera on the latest iPhones. The guideline time is "Fall 2018", which is another sign that Apple plans to launch a Smart Battery Case for the new iPhones before the end of the year. At the end, Apple still has time to deliver on its promises, but the release time is likely to be postponed until 2019.

It is worth noting that this is a reseller's guide, the new smart battery case appears in the "leather" column, and only in Black, in addition, Apple does not mention any of white version. Apple used silicone materials in all previous Smart Battery Cases and offered a variety of colors, it's unclear if the company plan to do so for this year's iPhone models.

Apple's first Smart Battery Case is dedicated to the iPhone 6, which included an additional 1877 mAh battery for the phone while also provide extra protection, its successor iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 too introduced the corresponding versions, however, the iPhone 7 capacity increased to 2365 mAh.
