Apple recently launched a new accessory that can fit on your iPhone XS and XR.
Introducing the iPhone battery case, and Apple has released its own power-packed cases for the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR. The $129 cases add a bulge to the back of your device, and in classic Apple style, the company hasn't released exactly how much extra juice the $129 cases actually hold.
What we do know, however, is that the Apple cases are compatible with Qi wireless charging tech, so you can slap them on a power pad and juice up that way. It also supports accessories with Lightning connectors, like the headphones that come with your iPhone (if you're still using those for some reason).
