For the first time, there are no official Apple cases for the iPhone XR, will you miss those?

Apple's rumored first clear iPhone case that was supposed to showcase the six flashy colors of the XR is nowhere to be seen on its website, but that goes for any other official case, too. At the time of this writing, and the week before it, there were only three iPhone XR cases available on Apple's website, and all three were made by OtterBox.
There are no official Apple cases for the iPhone XR, in-store or online
While this is certainly a great publicity for the popular accessory maker, it is quite perplexing that Apple isn't offering any protection of its own for what could prove to be its most popular device for the foreseeable future. They might be coming at a later date, or maybe Apple concluded that it is better off leaving the field to third-party case maker, yet no official Apple case for the XR?
Rather surprising, and the Apple Store shelves where those would be rather empty without them, too. this is why we wanted to ask if you will miss an official Apple case portfolio for the iPhone XR, or you are fine with the many third-party options for thin, clear, or leather wrappers.
Will you miss the official Apple cases for the iPhone XR?
Yes, those are the best ones
No, there are plenty of third-party options

they really want you to break that phone... yes there will be 3rd party... but what company doesn't at least provide some sort of protection for their phone knowing that glass is fragile no matter what... say what you want but even cheap android phones give you a little clear case for protection out the box

iPhones have such great third party support, I don’t think it will matter except to the most die hard fans. I still think it would be better to have at least one or two types in the Apple Stores for people who buy their new phone.
