Apple will sell an official clear case for the Apple iPhone XR

Apple will sell an official clear case for the Apple iPhone XR
When Apple introduced the iPhone XR last month (along with the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, of course) it posted an online press release in various countries around the world. This was done to reveal the pricing in local currencies, among other things. One release was made for Apple's Canadian customers and included some wording in the fine print that everyone seemed to miss until now.

According to Apple's Canadian press release for the iPhone XR, the company will be selling a clear case for the phone, starting at $55 Canadian Dollars (equivalent to $42 USD at current exchange rates). The fact that Apple is offering a case isn't a surprise; after all, it has offered silicone and leather iPhone cases for years now. What makes this interesting is that Apple is selling a clear case, ostensibly to show off the six different color options available for the iPhone XR. Those choices include black, white, coral, red, yellow and blue. 

Pre-orders for the Apple iPhone XR begin on October 19th, and the phone will launch on October 26th. The 64GB model is priced at $749 (or 24 monthly payments of $37.41). The 128GB variant will cost you $799 (or 24 monthly payments of $39.50), and the 256GB model will set you back $899 (or 24 monthly payments of $43.66).

€36 for a case is a joke. I've had cases for half of that, and they lasted longer than the phone itself. Apple are absolute mad lads. Of course, they will get away with it.

The IPhone XR ($750) is not worth Apples asking price, so what would make you think Apple's price of their clear case would be any different. Did anyone ever think that Apple would ever have a bargain? When people talk about sales for Apple's products, then those prices are also overpriced. Come on people.

not you again. would you give it a rest? we're adults and we all know what we're spending on products we like. if you dont find value in something - say what you must, and move on. do you have to post the same lame old ass rhetoric on every apple article? it's tiring.

Oh, so you want people to just roll over and be subjugated, the perfect Apple sheeple that takes what ever Apple makes, shutup, pay what ever Apple wants, because they tell you that what you are buying is great value. If we were living in a complete vacuum where the IPhone XR is just perfect, well it it's not. You, and Apple need to be reminded that the IPhone XR is MOST definitely overpriced, and its not good value for the money.

$55... lol. If I was a retard and bought Apple products, I'd at least opt for the SAME f**king case but made in china without an apple logo on it for $5.

here's a better idea, read and keep scrolling since you don't have any Apple products.

$40 for a case!? Only Apple could do this. And fanboys will buy it in droves.

Please don't make me link official cases from another company.

14. sissy246

You dont have to link it, i will say it, lol That other company charges just as much so why is it so bad Apple does. I am not even a apple fan. Ebay and Amazon for best prices on a case.

So......you're going to pretend that APPLE is the only company that makes cases that are "expensive"? I wish you idiots who continue this "fanboy" crap would just learn to enjoy what YOU buy and leave other people alone.

I cant help if my critique of a company makes you butthurt. Grow a pair.

What planet do you live on where you have never seen a case for $40. I mean have you ever walked into a Target?Wal-mart?Best Buy? any Carrier store? Ever? $40 is pretty standard

It'll be like garbage in a transparent bag. A 55$ garbage bag that is because it has an apple with a bite taken from it.

That same case will be $10.99 on Amazon. I don’t need a friggin $55 official Apple case lol. Nahhh...I’m good. The one on my Max, was $11.99 at Best Buy, and looks great. For $55, it had better never start to yellow.

So true I have never paid over $20 for a case on Ebay or Amazon. Most have been in the $10 to $12 range. That is the bad thing about clear cases, the yellowing

24. darkkjedii

Posts: 30688; Member since: Feb 05, 2011

And they all do, so I’d rather have a yellowing $12 case, vs a yellowing $55 case.

Yeah, i would not be happy to pay $55 for one and within a month or two it turns yellow.

i stopped using clear cases - in a few months all devices look old and brownish. my favorite are leather (or fake leather). currently using x-level by pipilu (or something) i bought for $7 on ebay. I had one by them on my note 5. its not real leather, but feels and lasts quite long. at the same time it's not so damn thick that it makes your phone difficult to hold. and best part - it hides the damn apple logo - i truely loath those cases with round cutout where apple log is at. I hate logos. So happy that samsung finally stopped printing theirs in front of the device.

Clear cases are my fav, followed by black ones. I like them as thin as possible, which is basically just for scratch protection.
