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 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.

wrong, there are tons of people holding on to mac pros and mac minis from 8+ years ago who want a good desktop option without a built in display.

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.
