iPhone XS Smart Battery Case in the “Case 2018” documentation for Apple Retailers

We revealed the existing existence of the iPhone XS Smart Battery Case earlier this month, with assets available in iOS builds. The Appleosophy website has detected another event in Apple's Autumn Merchandising Guidelines for Resellers. 9to5Mac has confirmed the results as legitimate. The images are included in a document that tells dealers how to present Apple silicone and leather bags in the fall of 2018. Incompatible images of an XS Smart Battery Bag are found in the "Black Leather XS Max" and "Black Leather XS" cells.

The Knut's hill is clearly visible and the vertical camera system confirms that this is a new design . Apple recently offered a first party battery charger for the iPhone 7 (and not the Plus model). The image contained in the "Fall 2018" documentation is another indicator that Apple was planning to launch this case before the end of the year. Autumn ends technical Friday 21 December, so there is still time for the company to meet that schedule. However, it is possible that the timelines were released and the new Apple battery box was dropped back to 2019. We do not really know why the case is included in the matrix in the "leather" row.

We revealed the existing existence of the iPhone XS Smart Battery Case earlier this month, with assets available in iOS builds. The Appleosophy website has detected another event in Apple’s Autumn Merchandising Guidelines for Resellers. 9to5Mac has confirmed the results as legitimate.

The images are included in a document that tells dealers how to present Apple silicone and leather bags in the fall of 2018. Incompatible images of an XS Smart Battery Bag are found in the “Black Leather XS Max” and “Black Leather XS” cells.

The image of the case is low-resolution but it definitely shows a case that Apple is not currently selling. The Knut’s hill is clearly visible and the vertical camera system confirms that this is a new design . Apple recently offered a first party battery charger for the iPhone 7 (and not the Plus model).

The image contained in the “Fall 2018” documentation is another indicator that Apple was planning to launch this case before the end of the year. Autumn ends technical Friday 21 December, so there is still time for the company to meet that schedule. However, it is possible that the timelines were released and the new Apple battery box was dropped back to 2019.

We do not really know why the case is included in the matrix in the “leather” row. It sits next to the regular range of leather seasonal case colors. The battery cover is only visible in the black column, there is no white version depicted in these documents. All previous smart battery chargers had silicone edges and came in several colors.

I interpret the disagreement of labeling as a mistake. The black leather trap was probably supposed to go in this cell instead of some comments about the range of the next battery compartment. What unambiguously confirms is that an iPhone X Series Smart Battery Case was close to completion internally, in time to promote images to find the way to brochures for retailers.

The image in the documentation is small so it does not look good when small. Here is the availability of higher quality from our history from earlier this month:

The new image matches the code leak, except that the camera module is included instead of an open hole. The code findings suggested the existence of three models, probably for XS, XS Max and XR. The Apple reseller document does not refer to any cases for iPhone XR, so we’re not sure about the fate of the XR battery case based on the latest discovery.

Thanks to Appleosophy to share its source with us to verify the validity of their report.
