Accessory makers rushed to unveil cases that fit the just-announced iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro series. These range from Mophie’s powerful battery case to more simple ones designed to bring additional protection.
There are new cases in a plethora of designs from OtterBox, Gear4, BodyGuardz and more.
Mophie Juice Pack Access
Apple says all its 2019 iPhones have longer battery lives than their predecessors, but the Mophie Juice Pack Access can add further to that. The iPhone 11 and 11 Pro versions include a 2,000mAh battery, while the version for the iPhone 11 Pro Max includes a 2,200mAh one. Each case uses Qi wireless charging to send power to the iPhone while leaving the handset’s Lightning port open.
This latest iteration of the Juice Pack Access line will debut in October for $99.95, and will be offered in black, blush pink, and (Product) Red.
Going beyond just making the handsets, Apple also produces cases for them. There’s a clear plastic case and a silicon case in white or black for the iPhone 11. The same is true for the iPhone 11 Pro series, but with the silicon case also available in many more colors, like orange, green red, yellow and more.
In addition, this company makes a leather case for the Pro series handsets in almost as wide a range of colors. A leather folio comes in black or dark purple.
These are all available now in prices going from $39 to $129.
OtterBox, whose name is synonymous with rugged cases, is out with multiple cases for Apple’s latest.
The Symmetry Series is designed to protect against daily drops and bumps without adding too much bulk. The Commuter Series boasts a hard outer shell and inner silicone slipcover, and OtterBox’s Defender Series is even more rugged.
Otter + Pop pairs protection with a built-in PopGrip, while the Strada Series offers leather-clad protection in a wallet case.
These are all available now on the OtterBox website. Prices a start at $39.95 and go up to $69.95.
No less than seven cases for the 2019 handsets are already available from Gear4. These offer at least 13 feet of drop protection, and come in clear or a range of colors.
Prices start at $39.99, and go up to the $59.99 Platoon, which can survive a drop of 20 feet — which Gear4 claims makes it the “world’s most impact protective phone case.”
Moshi’s cases for the new iOS handsets include Overture, a slim case with a detachable magnetic wallet, and Altra, a textured case with wrist strap and optional body strap. These work with the company’s SnapTo mounting system.
Pre-orders will start on September 20, the day Apple launches its newest devices. This accessory maker is asking between $24.95 and $44.95 for these.
BodyGuardz is another company with cases for the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. Its Paradign S case has a transparent back with a reflective, iridium finish, but also offers three layers of protection.
The Accent Duo Case is genuine leather and includes a removable wrist strap. An Accent Wallet Case adds slots for two credit cards.
These can be pre-ordered now, or soon. Prices range from $44.95 to $59.95.
