Apple Debuts New iPhone and iPad Cases, Launches New Apple Watch Bands

by

Following its educational event in Chicago, Apple quietly introduced iPhone and iPad cases in new spring colors and officially launched the Apple Watch bands that were introduced last week.

The new iPhone cases, iPad Smart Covers, Apple Pencil covers, and more, are available in bright primary colors, perhaps a nod to the educational focus of today's event.

The $39 iPhone X Silicone Case, for example, is available in Lemonade, Red Raspberry, Denim Blue, as are silicone cases for the iPhone 7/8 and iPhone 7/8 Plus.


The $49 iPhone X Leather Case, iPhone 7/8 Leather Case, and iPhone 7/8 Plus Leather Case are available in new Bright Orange, Spring Yellow, Electric Blue, and Soft Pink colors. The $99 iPhone X Leather Folio is available in new Soft Pink and Electric Blue shades.


Apple's $129 Leather Sleeve for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro is available in Soft Pink and Electric Blue, as is the $29 Apple Pencil Case for the Apple Pencil.


The $49 10.5-inch iPad Pro Smart Cover is available in new Lemonade and Red Raspberry shades, while the $69 10.5-inch Leather iPad Pro Smart Cover is available in Electric Blue and Soft Pink.


Apple last week introduced new Apple Watch bands in a variety of spring colors, and all of those bands are available for purchase starting today. The $49 Sport Band is now available in Lemonade, Red Raspberry, and Denim Blue, while the $49 Nike Sport Bands now come in Cargo Khaki/Black, Barely Rose/Pearl Pink, and Black/White.


Woven Nylon Bands ($49) are available in new striped shades including Pink Stripe, Blue Stripe, Gray Stripe, and Black Stripe, while the newer $49 Sport Loop bands now come in Hot Pink, Flash Light, Tahoe Blue, and Marine Green.


The Classic Buckle ($149) is available in Soft Pink, Spring Yellow, and Electric Blue, and there are several new Single Tour ($439) and Double Tour ($489) Hermès bands in fresh designs and colors.


All of the new Apple Watch bands, iPhone cases, iPad cases, and other accessories are available for purchase from the online Apple Store starting today and should be in stores later this week.

The color palette on those cases looks like something out of a Fischer Price catalog

Fairly shocked that the Airpower was not silently updated on the Apple Store today either. So it’s either WWDC or one year later in the fall during the iPhone keynote.

Yes, the mac mini is about as important as the iPod. It's hilarious how a select few whine every time a new event fails to mention the Mac Mini. It's a niche market and apple sells far more iPads than it does Macs every quarter, let alone mac minis (even if it was up to date).

By tons, you mean you. Apple makes some of the best displays in the business. As a creative professional the iMac Pro is a dream machine for me. Times change, tech changes. Get on board or get off the boat is the way I see it. Apple stumbled a bit but the iMac Pro is a sweet setup every way around for the vast majority of creative professionals.

For someone so sure of themselves, you certainly have no idea what you are talking about. So instead of asking for a cheap Mac mini, people should just get a an iMac Pro that starts at $5k. Haha, ok.
