    Hello!!
    I’m pre-ordering iPhone XR on 19th October for a present, however I haven’t decided the colour yet because it depends on the shape/colour of cases released. Do you think Apple is going to show them before day of pre-orders or until that day they are not going to appear on the web? Other times the cases have been on apple online store a long time before but unavailable (not this time).It’s weird.
    Maybe Apple is not going to release iPhone XR cases...

    With iPhone XS and XS Max, Apple announced cases 2 days prior to the preorder date. So October 17 is likely when they will be announced, or roughly 2 weeks from now.

    At the very minimum, I think Apple will announce Silicone and Leather cases for XR. Folio Leather is a distinct maybe.

    they will release their own silicone and leather cases lol trust me XD , as for the actual manufacturers we don't know yet but usually tech21 and otterbox always appears first before everything else in the apple store as a 3rd party certified and tested range

    I have a feeling Apple may have something big planned for the new iPhone Xr, they are yet to put cases on the website so I’m guessing they are planning to release a case which looks like the cases they released for the iPhone 5c and I think that would be so awesome

    I photoshopped the kind of case Apple may design for the Xr B9C07822-B439-4273-AE5A-A6676C6A0286.png

    I guess if you keep your expectations low you can't be disappointed... You consider this "something big" ?

    I think the cases hit the store 1-2 days in advance of launch, so we've still got some time to go. Can't say I was the biggest fan of the 5c cases, though I am curious what Apple will do in order to compliment the new colors.

    they aren't on the website cause the phone isn't out yet.

    I have an iPad pro 12.9 and it's very big. Bigger than my MacBook Pro. I cannot imagine anything bigger than that.

    An iPad without bezels would be smaller, which disproves your point.

    The 5c cases were hideous. So we can only hope this so called big news, is not.

    But why would a case be designated as something as ‘big planned’ From Apple. I’m not following your logic for an accessory to an iPhone.

    Apple cases are ridiculous. I love my transparent $3 case.

    Dear Edin-bureau forum colleague,

    Would you really go out there and drop $6,000 on a new Mac Mini, Mac Pro and iPhone SE if Apple released them? They're in the business of making money. iPad sell by the millions. Home deskops are a dying market.

    I didn't say Apple will discontinue all iPads, I said the news of them doing so would be actual big news.

    Yep, not all 3 though. The SE definitely, but the Mini or Pro it would be one or the other.

    We're getting new Minis and Pros anyway, so... yeah.

    If I had to make a bet...It’s going to look the same as the 8 case...just with a vertical cutout for the camera.
