Appleosophy has found more evidence that an iPhone XS Smart Battery Case is on the way, spotting the accessory in Apple’s fall 2018 merchandising guidelines for resellers.
Images obtained by Appleosophy show what appears to be a black Apple Smart Battery Case, alongside featured cases on an “Apple Premium Reseller Accessory Merchandising Guidelines” document, intended for Apple Employees showcasing the case designs on the “wall”, like in the Apple Stores.
The document is marked for “Fall 2018”, and also shows the Winter Case Designs that were recently released for the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max models, so we should see a release of the new Apple Smart Battery Case later this year, before 2019 starts.
Currently, there are no Smart Battery Cases available for the iPhone X or iPhone XS, much to the frustration of users looking for a way to extend the battery life of their favorite handset.
While it appears Apple intended to release the Smart Battery Case during the fall 2018 timespan, fall ends this Friday, December 21st. That leaves three days for the Cupertino firm to make it under the wire, but it’s more likely that any release of the new accessory would be in Winter 2018/2019.
