Apple Releases Clear Case for the iPhone XR
Apple’s been selling its own silicone and leather iPhone cases for years now, but for the first time, it will sell a clear case with the release of the iPhone XR, as spotted by a Twitter user. The iPhone XR comes in six different colours — black, white, red, yellow, blue, and coral — so it makes sense that Apple would want to sell transparent cases to show off the new designs. The announcement on its official iPhone XR accessories has been mysteriously missing from any US press materials, but a press release on Apple’s Canadian Newsroom shows that the clear case will go on sale for $55 CAD, which is about $42 USD, which is about NGN15,246 . 9to5Mac obtained a marketing image of the phone case, shown below. Although Apple’s silicone cases sell for $39 in the US, and the transparent cases may sell for around that price, it still sounds like a lot to pay for transparent plastic.
Unlike the iPhone 5C, which also came in colorful backings, the iPhone XR has a glass back instead of plastic, so it may be worth investing in a clear case if you want to show off the colour while protecting your phone at the same time. Leave your comments below
