What you need to know
- Apple is rumored to be planning new colors for its iPhone 12 case lineup.
- A new image depicting all four has surfaced on Twitter.
- It matches a previous rumor about four new colors of Apple's MagSafe case.
On Monday, a Twitter user by the name of Tommy Boi shared this image:
The leak is from a hitherto unknown source, however, the colors match exactly a leak shared earlier this month from a more reliable source. On April 2 DuanRui shared images depicting the four rumored new colors, and as you can see they match exactly:

The images, taken from Weibo, largely match the iPhone 11 cases Apple released in the spring of 2020. These cases are usually released towards the end of March or the start of April, so are definitely overdue by the usual timings. Tommy Boi says the cases are silicone, and that the colors are named as follows: Pistachio, Capri Blue, Cantaloupe, Amethyst.
It could be that they are quietly (or not quietly) released alongside other products at Apple's April 20 event. In a huge turnup earlier today, Apple's voice assistant Siri appears to have spilled the beans on an April 20 Apple event, from that report:
