Are there any Side Effects to putting a iPhone XR in a iPhone 11 Smart Battery Case?

I’m wondering if anyone has tried that for the camera button and more battery capacity?

I have bought several other 11 cases for my XR and they have all worked. Much better selection for 11 cases and I don’t mind the camera opening. I would assume the battery case would fit. Function; I do not know.

Wondering if it would hurt the battery health at all since it’s on a phone it wasn’t technically made for?

The 11 has only a minor battery size difference. I think you'd be okay. I know on Reddit people have used the XR battery case with the 11. So I think since Apple made both the charging case and device, there is likely a good chance it wouldn't do any harm.

I have the XR battery case as well but the case doesn’t let the phone turn off and I have been through 2 of them, after you turn the phone off while plugged in to an outlet 15 min later the phone always turns back on by itself

I don’t see why you would, it wouldn’t fit properly.
It does fit, big camera space though

Wasn't there a recall on the XR battery case?


But yeah, I'd go for the 11 battery case. I think it'll be fine.

Though I think the iPhone turning itself back on is regular behavior, even with a battery case on it. The current will pass through the case.

It did on my iPhone 7 battery case.

Yeah I got this weird thing where I always turn the phone off and charge it when I go to bed, me thinking the phone shouldn’t be on 24/7 maybe it’s just me
