Looking at the Ink colored leather case for the 14 Pro.. I can't really tell from the pictures online. Is it a dark purple or blue?

Update 09-13-2022:

Went to my local Apple Store today and they brought one out so I could see it for myself. I did not see any hint of purple. Just dark blue or what Apple used to call midnight (before darkening it significantly last year).

I came to ask the same thing. I first thought that it was blue, but the view of it on the purple phone makes me think it's more of a purple.

I had that same question. If its more on the blue side, I will order it. I guess I'll just wait until someone posts a YouTube video of the cases IRL.

Is the 12th (which says 13th for me now) the date it’s delivered there if you do in-store-pickup though or should the Stores start stocking them by then too?

Or in other words, do Apple stores start stocking iPhone 14 (Pro) accessories before they stock the phones themselves?

They start stocking accessories before release of the phones.

They normally have the accessories the Monday before the release in the stores. It's been that way for several years now...

On my OLED screen both the Ink and Midnight cases look like dark blue.

and I thought the orange leather looked mustard yellow too.
Elderberry looked a better purple than ink, but is silicone durability improved this year, who knows.

Does the box EVER match the case ? :p

Went “boring” this year and ordered midnight, but I kinda want ink now. Initially thought it was going to more purple than blue but the vid/pic show otherwise.

I couldn't figure out what color "Ink" was either. I ordered "Midnight" case and MagSafe wallet for my 14 Pro. UPS is delivering the cases today (Sat) already.
