Apple Begins Selling iPhone XR Clear Case, Costs $39 in United States

Apple has begun selling its long-awaited iPhone XR clear case on and at many Apple Stores around the world. The case is priced at $39 in the United States, with online orders placed today estimated for delivery within a few days.

Apple says the case is crafted from a blend of clear polycarbonate and flexible TPU plastics, with a scratch-resistant coating applied to both the exterior and interior. The clear design is appropriate given the iPhone XR is available in a variety of colors, such as yellow, blue, white, coral, and (PRODUCT)RED.

Apple's description of the case:
Thin, light and easy to grip — this case lets you enjoy the look of iPhone XR while providing extra protection. It's also crafted with a blend of optically clear polycarbonate and flexible TPU materials, so the case fits right over the buttons for easy use. On the surface, a scratch-resistant coating has been applied not only to the exterior, but also to the interior. Need to wirelessly charge? Just leave the case on your iPhone and set it on your Qi charger.
This is the first Apple-branded case available for the iPhone XR since the device launched October 26. Apple mentioned the case in its iPhone XR press release in certain countries back in October, but it only became available to purchase today, limiting customers to third-party options until now.

(Thanks, Joshua!)

Gotta admit, it has a very subtle beauty to it:

10 bucks says this yellows in a month.

Not implying Apple's quality is shoddy, just I haven't found a clear case yet which doesn't.

$39 dollars? That's a steal ... there are no other makers of clear cases on the market at all.
So clear thumbs up from me.

"When we sat down to design a case for the XR we wanted something that would showcase the beauty underneath. What's more elegant than thermo-injection-moulded clear plastic? Every angle, every opening was carefully placed to be perfectly symmetrical with the XR while still providing the highest level of protection."

Cost of Apple products are starting to become not worth it anymore. One reason I am starting to look at alternatives. This case is a prime example on how Apple keeps pricing there product too high. Soon it will be a 1% product and too high for the average person to purchase.
