I just dont get apple here. The XR is the higher selling model and they dont sell cases for it. Apples cases are almost entirely profit for them. They sell $5 worth of case for $50. Why on earth arent they making cases for the XR?

Say what you will about Apple, but they really have a way with describing colors.

I wonder why the lack of XR cases. Seems like an easy quick buck for Apple, without much effort, especially since the XR is the best selling model this year.
