Apple unveils silicone iPhone cases and Apple Watch Sport Bands

Apple has updated its collection of Apple Watch Sport Bands and iPhone cases today with a variety of new colors to celebrate summer. There are four new colors for the Apple Watch Sport Band: Seafoam, Vitamin C, Linen Blue, and Coastal Gray. All four of the new colors are available now in 40mm and 44mm sizes for $49.

Made from a custom high-performance fluoroelastomer, the Sport Band is durable and strong, yet surprisingly soft. The smooth, dense material drapes elegantly across your wrist and feels comfortable next to your skin. An innovative pin-and-tuck closure ensures a clean fit.

Apple has also released new silicone cases for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and the flagship iPhone 11 Pro Max. The new cases are available in three new colors: Seafoam, Vitamin C, and Linen Blue. Each costs $39.

Chance Miller for 9to5Mac:

It’s common for Apple to introduce new Apple Watch band colors near the start of a new season. As of right now, the Sport Band is the only option to be updated for summer 2020. There have been rumors of a new Leather Loop for Apple Watch, but that was not included with today’s updates.

We also expect the new iPhone cases to be available on Apple’s official Amazon storefront soon, alongside the new Apple Watch bands. They will likely also be available in physical Apple Stores that are open sometime this week.

    1. None of the cheapo bands replicate Apple’s quality. You’ll see these colors on Amazon soon enough under various comical brand names, and they’ll be floppy junk in comparison. My 5-year-old black sport band from my original Apple Watch on my wrist right now shows little wear and works as well as day one.

  1. Then don’t buy it if you don’t like the price. Remember: capitalism means that both sides make their decisions voluntarily. Maybe you’d like price controls instead. It was tried in the 1970s and, as always, was a dismal failure. USSR and Cuba and China and N. Korea all offer controls. Perhaps you’d like to give it a try there.

  2. When intimidation, force and property destruction are permitted to reach goals of “fairness,” we’re following in Trotsky’s track. According to a Mpls. Council woman, being able to call the police for legal safety reasons is a sign of “white privilege,” which was said in justification for disbanding the Mpls. Police Dept. We’re up for a period of some left-generated and statist-designed “learning & discipline.”

    Maybe we’ll freshen it up a bit and call it something other than Communism? That’d be nice.

    1. I see the president and his people at FNN have renamed “Nationalism.” It’s now “Americanism,” so the president sounds less Nazi-ish while he’s chanting the traditional slogan of the American Nazi Party, “America First!”

  3. Oooooo, “Americanism.” How dare he. “American First,” w/o the sludge brought by the leftist antifa (who may or not include BLM), sounds pretty ok to me. Very nazi to be patriotic these days for some, I guess?
