Apple often releases new iPhone cases and Apple Watch bands around this time of year. A new leak indicates that other colors will be added to the MagSafe compatible case range for the iPhone 12.
This preview came through a reputable source on the Chinese social media site Weibo. Photos of the bi-color case samples were later republished and made public by Twitter’s well-known leak source, DuanRui.
While we can’t confirm the accuracy of this information for now, you might want to wait another week or two if you’re considering purchasing an Apple accessory. Especially if you like the colors shown here.
These case colors are similar to the refresh colors released for the iPhone 11 last year, although a new purple color option is also available. Compared to previous years, it is possible to see new Apple Watch bands with the same colors.
Note that these are not entirely new products. There will only be updated versions of the accessories that Apple sells for its smartphone and smartwatch, and these will of course be compatible with the latest models.
The leak is a reminder that we expect Apple to hold a launch event with a statement in the near future. We initially thought it could be in March, but March is over and we haven’t seen any promotions or events from Apple.
There are some strong signals from various sources that the event will take place sometime in April, but so far there is no confirmation for it.
If there is an Apple promotion, we expect new iPad Pro models, new iMac all-in-one desktops, new versions of AirPods and the highly anticipated AirTags item-tracking devices, as well as the accessories we mentioned earlier.
