Apple Releases New Accessories and Cases for iPhone 8 and iPhone X

by

Following Apple's Tuesday event that saw the debut of the new iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X, Apple has introduced a range of new wireless accessories and cases in a selection of new colors.

There's a new Leather Folio case specifically designed for the iPhone X, with a front cover that protects the display of the device when not in use. The Leather Folio case is priced at $99 and comes in Cosmos Blue, Taupe, Black, and Berry. Because the iPhone X will not be shipping out to customers until November, the Leather Folio case is not yet available for purchase.

Along with the Folio Case, Apple has introduced new standard Silicone and Leather cases for the iPhone X, the iPhone 8, and the iPhone 8 Plus. Because the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are nearly identical in size and shape to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, these new cases also fit Apple's existing devices.

The iPhone X Silicone Case is priced at $39 and comes in Blue Cobalt, Rose Red, Ultra Violet, Dark Olive, White, Pink Sand, Midnight Blue, Black, and (PRODUCT)RED.

There are two Qi wireless chargers built for the iPhone X and the iPhone 8, designed by Mophie and Belkin. Both are simple charging pads that plug into the wall and then charge the iPhone X/iPhone 8 inductively. Belkin's solution (on the left in the image below) is priced at $59.95 and comes in white. Mophie's charging base comes in black and is also priced at $59.95. Neither charging base is available as of yet and there's no release date available.

The $49 iPhone Lightning Dock, which will work with both the iPhone 8 and the iPhone X in lieu of wireless charging, is available in a new shade of gold that matches the new gold color available for the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus. Black, Silver, Space Gray, and Rose Gold continue to be available as well. The new dock is available today.

In Germany, iPad Pro 256 GB and 512 GB is now a lot more expensive (no change for 64 GB).
On the 10.5 model 256 GB was 829€, now it's 899€. 512 GB is now 1119€ (I think it was 1029€!).
Same price differences for the cellular und 12.9 models.
Why?

I was just about to write that. The 10.5-inch iPad Pro (256GB, Wi-Fi & Cellular) in the UK has gone up £60. The $ to £ exchange rate is a little better now for us Brits, so the price should've gone down, not up! I think it's just greed. By all means, Apple, make money, but you're pricing your products out of the reach of the common man. And this comes just a day after Tim Cook said they don't make products just for the rich. Ha!

Interesting that the iPhone X turns on when you open the folio case. Wonder what sensor/magnet is going on there?
