Apple’s iPhone 11 Pro battery case sports a new camera button


Apple’s iPhone 11 Pro battery case sports a new camera button – TechCrunch

Apple just released the iPhone 11 Pro’s battery case and it comes with surprise: a button for the camera. This is a minor, but welcomed addition to an otherwise standard battery case.

The button is clever. It’s located on the bottom half of the case is not a soft button that presses something on the phone. This button is exclusive to this case and when pressed, launches the iPhone’s Camera app even if the iPhone is locked. A quick press takes a photo and a longer press takes a QuickTake video.

The $129.00 case is available for both iPhone Pro 11 and iPhone 11 and has other features too. It’s compatible with Qi-certified chargers and works with USB-PD-compatible chargers to pump power into the battery at a faster rate. Apple says, when the case is fully charged, it will provide the 50% longer battery life.

This is the first time Apple has added a shortcut of sorts to the camera app. On most Android phones, a double press of the power button launches the camera app. It’s handy, and while this button is exclusive to a case, is a step in the right direction. Here’s hoping that Apple figures out how to add this button to non-battery cases.

In the last week, VC firms based in Finland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Greenland and Iceland announced u20ac1.2 billion in fresh funds to invest.n

Nordic entrepreneurs are a constant presence, whether they’re based in their home region, in the U.S, or the U.K. Northern Europe has deep roots in gaming, graphics, music, and communications technology that has helped raise giants like Unity, King, Mojang, Supercell, Spotify, Skype, Rovio, Paradox Interactive, Truecaller and Kobalt. n

But the ecosystem’s strength has expanded substantially outside those fields, particularly with fintech unicorns like iZettle, Klarna, and Bambora, customer service software platform Zendesk, and others.u00a0n

Because SLUSH, the regionu2019s largest startup conference, is taking place in Helsinki this week, I asked several Nordics-focused VCs to share which startup trends they’re most excited about:n
