Apple Releases New Cases for iPhone SE, But iPhone 8 Cases Also Fit

Apple today introduced the long-awaited low-cost iPhone SE, and alongside of the new device, Apple has unveiled silicone and leather cases designed to fit it.

iphonesecases
Silicone cases for the new ‌iPhone SE‌ are available in pink sand, white, and black, and are priced at $35, while leather cases for the device are available in (PRODUCT)RED, black, and midnight blue and can be purchased for $45.

According to the compatibility section of the case product listing, the cases are only compatible with the new ‌iPhone SE‌, but because of the design similarities between the ‌iPhone SE‌ and the iPhone 8, existing ‌iPhone‌ 8 cases will also fit. That should mean that earlier ‌iPhone‌ cases, such as ‌iPhone‌ 7 cases, should also fit the new ‌iPhone SE‌ models.

In fact, Apple confirmed to The Verge that cases designed for the ‌iPhone‌ 8 "will work fine on the SE."

Except it’s an iPhone 11 generation phone. And if you were culturally aware, you’d know that the number 9 is bad luck in the huge Asian market. That’s why there was never a Windows 9 either.
So being so culturally aware as you are. Since when is 9 unlucky in Asian culture?

Why not call it the iPhone 9?

Appropriate, and would have avoided confusion with previous generation iPhone SE.

Because a line-up involving iPhones 9/11 would feel very dark

Yet the regular iPhone 11 can’t get leather cases...

Since they had two versions of a 4 I don't think they track much Asian numerology.

It's too bad the official cases have such a large unprotected area on the chin by the home button. :(
The leather case for the first-generation SE had complete coverage there, with a simple oval cutout for the lightning port.
