Accessories: iPhone 7 Cases, iPad Smart Covers, Apple Watch Bands, More Get New Color Options
Apple may have announced all new iPhones and Apple Watches, but if you’re buying either, then you may want a fancy new accessory to go alongside it. Maybe a case, or a new band?
Apple has quietly launched a host of new Apple Watch bands as well as cases for its iPhone (including the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus) and iPad lineup. They are all suitably colorful, and they’re all up on Apple’s site now.
Starting with the Apple Watch’s Sport bands, buyers can now choose from the original colors as well as the additional Pink Sand, Ocean Blue, Cocoa, and Concrete – all available for $49. If you want something a little more formal, though, the Woven Nylon bands now offer a host of new colors, including Light Pink / Midnight Blue, Yellow / Light Gray, Space Orange / Anthracite, Toasted Coffee / Caramel, and Navy / Tahoe Blue. Again, any of those will set buyers back $49.
The $149 Classic Buckle has now received the Sea Blue color option, and the other models offered by Apple have actually lost some color options presumably to allow Apple to cut down on the number of SKUs on offer given the new colors added elsewhere in the lineup.
Anyone placing an order for a new iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus and on the lookout for a new case will be able to choose from nine different colors when selecting a silicone case, costing just $35 for the iPhone 7 and $39 for the iPhone 7 Plus in Pink Sand, Sea Blue, Ocean Blue, Stone, Cocoa, White, Black, Midnight Blue, and (PRODUCT) Red flavors. Leather cases are also available, costing $45 and $49, with seven colors to choose from – Sea Blue, Storm Gray, Tan, Saddle Brown, Midnight Blue, Black, and (PRODUCT) Red.
In addition to this, Apple has also updated Smart Battery Case for iPhone 7, which is now available in white and black colors. There’s a new black Lightning Dock color available as well.
In order to make sure iPad owners aren’t left out, Apple has also updated its lineup of cases and Smart Covers for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro and iPad mini 4 to reflect the same colors as the new iPhone silicone cases.
Shipping times for all products vary, with some coming as soon as Friday. The rest, however, may need a little time to become available.
