Well, reports in the claim the new $129 Smart Battery Case made for the iPhone XS is compatible with last year’s iPhone X flagship as well.
Just yesterday, it looked like Apple had left their old loyal customers from their minds when they announced the new battery cases for their new iPhone line-up of iPhone XS, XS Max and XR respectively. And the iPhone X was not on the list.
To make the matter more sad for the old X iPhone users, Apple officially stayed even though both the iPhone X and iPhone XS are almost the same size and shape, the new iPhone XS case will not work for the iPhone X. The Apple Support Page also clarifies this statement.
Back to the new cases. Well, the new iPhone cases are priced at $129 and are designed for the new iPhone devices, in particular, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. The shipping of the cases will begin from January 18th.
Overall, sad news for the old iPhone X users. OK, here’s the twist. According to iMore, the new iPhone XS case is compatible with your iPhone X device. For this you will have to dismiss the “this accessory is not supported by this device” message that pops up on fitting the case. You might have to reboot the device in the case, the device still does not accept the case. Also, you might face a bit problem with the alignment as the cameras, charging port speakers and mics are placed differently.
So, if you still want to get the new iPhone XS battery case for your iPhone X you can choose the Mophie’s Juice Pack Air. The case extends your devices battery life up to 30 hours and is available for $99.95.
