The iPhone 11 Pro Smart Battery Case

The original Mophie Juice Pack and the Juice Pack Air were the last battery cases I owned and used on the iPhone. They did a pretty great job, and I appreciated being able to keep my iPhone juiced up in situations where I am away from a charging outlet on my photo walks.

Talking of photo walks, considering I have plans to restart the hobby, I already planned on getting a battery bank, but it now makes sense to look into Apples Smart Battery Case for the iPhone 11 Pro instead. The dedicated camera button on the case to quickly launch the camera whether the iPhone screen is locked or unlocked is a bonus and the deciding factor in getting the Smart Battery Case instead of a battery bank. It will no doubt prove to be incredibly useful.

Even though I continue to experience and enjoy the vastly improved battery life on my iPhone 11 Pro Max, having a back-up in case a short photo walk turns into a lengthy all-day affair makes sense. I plan not only resurrecting my photography hobby but also journey into the world of videography as well, given how good the iPhone 11 Pro shoots video now. For that, I will take all the extra juice I can get.

Upgrading to the iPhone 11 Pro Max

Leading to the September 10 Apple Keynote Event announcing the next generation of iPhones, I had little intention of upgrading for the simple fact that I purchased the 512GB iPhone XS Max six months earlier. I planned on using the XS Max and wait for the 2020 iPhone. However, I had a reservation that, based on enhancements, i.e. the camera, battery life, I will make considerations on whether to upgrade.

The iPhone 11 Pro Camera

Camera improvements on the iPhone have always been a focal point, and this year is no different. To date, the camera enhancements on the iPhone 11 Pro is the best I’ve seen on an iPhone. I’ve always been a fan of the iPhone camera and the plethora of photo taking and editing apps. Photography apps dominate my App Store library by a considerable margin.

When Instagram exclusively launched on iOS in 2010, as a photo-sharing platform, which helped fuel the rise of iPhone photography, commonly known as iPhoneography, I was intensely active with photo walks.

Although my photo walk activities and sharing snaps online waned over the years, I continued to use the iPhone camera to snap unmissable photo opportunities actively. The new camera enhancements on the iPhone 11 Pro have whetted my appetite to start photo walks again. With that in my mind, I went out on a short photo walk to see how well the new ultra-wide camera lens handles and captures vast areas. I was not disappointed. I, later on, went out for another walk to capture the night scene with the new Night Mode, I was in awe.

In a strongly contested world of mobile photography, the iPhone camera has once again positioned itself to be the undisputed champion of mobile photography.

Enjoy.
