Indeed, Apple has been selling its own silicon and leather iPhone cases and back covers for years now, but for the first time, it is said to reportedly sell a clear case with the release of the iPhone XR. This news comes via a Twitter account.
The newly announced iPhone XR will be available to purchase in six different colors, including Black, White, Red, Yellow, Blue, and Coral, which also makes sense that Cupertino-based company would want to sell transparent cases to show off the new designs.
Of course, the official announcement on its iPhone XR accessories has been missing from any US press materials, although a press release on Apple’s Canadian Newsroom shows that the clear case will go on sale for $55 CAD. The same clear case for iPhone XR is about $45 USD in the United States.
The aforementioned topic has been obtained by 9to5Mac and also shared a marketing image of the phone case, shown below.
As it is a transparent case cover, Apple’s silicon case sells for $39 in the US, and the transparent cases may sell for around that similar price. It sounds like a lot to pay for transparent plastic. Alternatively, Speck is also selling a clear iPhone XR case for $40, but its cases offer more protection with raised bezel guards.
While the iPhone XR owners may want to get their hands on an Apple-official clear case for the first time, when spending more money to buy it, one that doesn’t have third-party logos.
Unlike the iPhone 5C, which also comes in colorful backing, the iPhone XR has a glass back instead of plastic. So, it may be worth investing in a clear case if you really want to show off the color while also protecting your phone at the same time.
The case isn’t available online as yet, but it’ll most likely be available when the iPhone XR launches on October 26th. Apple hasn’t said any word on whether it’ll be released in the US, but again, we’ve reached out and will update when we hear anything new and catchy.
