    Following its educational event in Chicago, Apple quietly introduced iPhone and iPad cases in new spring colors and officially launched the Apple Watch bands that were introduced last week.

    The new iPhone cases, iPad Smart Covers, Apple Pencil covers, and more, are available in bright primary colors, perhaps a nod to the educational focus of today's event.

    The $39 iPhone X Silicone Case, for example, is available in Lemonade, Red Raspberry, Denim Blue, as are silicone cases for the iPhone 7/8 and iPhone 7/8 Plus.

    Apple's $129 Leather Sleeve for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro is available in Soft Pink and Electric Blue, as is the $29 Apple Pencil Case for the Apple Pencil.

    The $49 10.5-inch iPad Pro Smart Cover is available in new Lemonade and Red Raspberry shades, while the $69 10.5-inch Leather iPad Pro Smart Cover is available in Electric Blue and Soft Pink.

    Apple last week introduced new Apple Watch bands in a variety of spring colors, and all of those bands are available for purchase starting today. The $49 Sport Band is now available in Lemonade, Red Raspberry, and Denim Blue, while the $49 Nike Sport Bands now come in Cargo Khaki/Black, Barely Rose/Pearl Pink, and Black/White.

    The Classic Buckle ($149) is available in Soft Pink, Spring Yellow, and Electric Blue, and there are several new Single Tour ($439) and Double Tour ($489) Hermès bands in fresh designs and colors.

    Love the selection of colours. But why is the 12.9" iPad never given any of these options?

    I find it super annoying that despite Apple going to so much effort with design, most of their bands don't even have the right colour lug to match my Watch.

    Fairly shocked that the Airpower was not silently updated on the Apple Store today either. So it’s either WWDC or one year later in the fall during the iPhone keynote.

    Same here. Really curious what is causing the delay.

    The color palette on those cases looks like something out of a Fischer Price catalog

    wrong, there are tons of people holding on to mac pros and mac minis from 8+ years ago who want a good desktop option without a built in display.

    So...nothing for the iPhone SE?

    It's a damn shame that it's Apple's silcone covers alone that make me want to move to an iPhone 8.

    From day one the 12.9 has never gotten the colourful treatment (smart covers, cases, leather sleeves..)

    I wish this wasn't the case.

    Yes, the mac mini is about as important as the iPod. It's hilarious how a select few whine every time a new event fails to mention the Mac Mini. It's a niche market and apple sells far more iPads than it does Macs every quarter, let alone mac minis (even if it was up to date).

    By tons, you mean you. Apple makes some of the best displays in the business. As a creative professional the iMac Pro is a dream machine for me. Times change, tech changes. Get on board or get off the boat is the way I see it. Apple stumbled a bit but the iMac Pro is a sweet setup every way around for the vast majority of creative professionals.

    I agree. Probably not a coincidence either considering today’s event topic.

    For someone so sure of themselves, you certainly have no idea what you are talking about. So instead of asking for a cheap Mac mini, people should just get a an iMac Pro that starts at $5k. Haha, ok.

    Touched a nerve there, eh? Someone needs to calm down.

    BTW, that first sentence is false.

    Although it's been one year of owning Apple watches, I've only bought two extra bands. I have 3 series 2 watches and 3 series 3 watches and I just swap the bands between them on whatever watch I wear that day.

    On a side note, I wouldn't mind a new Mac Mini as well. Still using my 2012 i7 Mini.
