Apple is expected to announce a handful of new iPhones on Wednesday and we might now have had our first proper look at the cases that will go with them.
Whenever Apple releases new iPhones it refreshes its case lineup and Wednesday is unlikely to be any different. That means that the upcoming iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro lineups are also set to get new cases to call their own. A new series of images shared on Twitter appears to have outed the colors iPhone buyers will get to choose from, too.
All the colors
Now I can say with 99% confidence that the iPhone 14 Case colors you saw in previous tweets will be official. iPhone 14 Max will probably only be called Plus pic.twitter.com/nM3Y95broQSeptember 4, 2022
The images, shared to Twitter by @MajinBuOfficial, show cases in a variety of colors as well as the names that we should expect Apple to give them. Apple always gives its colors marketable names, and 2022 looks set to be no different on that front.
Based on information shared so far, Apple's leather cases will come in brown, golden brown, midnight blue, black, fir green, and bright orange. If you want to add a splash of color, the bright orange looks likely to be the one to choose.
For those who prefer a silicone case, options look set to include storm blue, elderberry, sun glow, lilac, red, chalk pink, succulent, and midnight.
If all goes according to expectation, Apple will announce its iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max devices during its September 7 event, with handsets going up for pre-order on September 9. Based on previous release cadences, that should mean that iPhones will be available to buy on September 16. Expect the cases to be available around the same date, too.
Apple isn't only expected to announce new iPhones, though. A new Apple Watch SE refresh and Apple Watch Series 8 are anticipated, while the best Apple Watch for active people will soon be the new Apple Watch Pro, if rumors are to be believed.
