Apple finally releases its first official case for iPhone XR

Report: iPhone Sales Fail Triggered

Report: iPhone Sales Fail Triggered "Fire Drill" at Apple

That leaves modern iPhones like the 8, X, XS, and XR without a first-party battery option of their own, but it may not be that way for much longer. The icon itself is simple enough, but we can make some assumptions about the design of the new Smart Battery Case despite that. However, up until now, we haven't seen any. The icon, which can be found on watchOS 5.1.2 beta 2, is used to display the charging status for the battery case within the battery widget. This is the same component which predicted the new 2018 iPad Pro without a Home button.

Now, in what might arguably represent the latest of Apple's struggles to jump-start new iPhone XS and XR sales, a report published this week by Bloomberg notes that the company reassigned several of its marketing staff from the individual projects they were working on, to focusing exclusively on iPhone marketing.

Apple is finally selling its long-awaited iPhone Xr clear case at Apple Stores worldwide, as well as online, after its original availability was scheduled for October. However, it does not feature a huge chin at the bottom. After the offer ends, replacing the battery of an iPhone 6 or later model will cost $49 (approx Rs 3,500).

In addition to this, there is no word from the company when the new Smart Battery Case will be released to the public. There will be more to the story, so be sure to stay tuned in for more details on the matter. What are your thoughts on the matter? Interestingly, if that's the case with the "affordable" iPhone XR, it can be assumed that the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, which are more expensive, aren't really selling that well either.
