Apple today announced a raft of new and updated products, with a new purple iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini one of those things we definitely didn’t see coming.

The new iPhones are identical to the ones already on sale, except they now come in a rather striking purple color for those who want something a little more funky.

Apple says that the new color will be available for pre-order this coming Friday, April 23, with devices shipping a week later on April 30.

iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini in purple will be available for pre-order beginning Friday, April 23, with availability beginning Friday, April 30. Customers can also complement their iPhone with a new MagSafe Leather Case or Leather Sleeve in Deep Violet, a Silicone Case in Capri Blue, Pistachio, Cantaloupe, or Amethyst, or a Leather Wallet in Arizona, all available to order beginning today.

The arrival of new cases to go with the new color iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini should be no surprise, with Apple often keen to make sure that there is a range of accessories that best matches the color of iPhones on sale.

The new purple iPhone is perhaps the best one of those available right now, although fans of the red iPhone will surely have something to say about that!
