Apple launches new spring-inspired pastel-coloured iPhone cases, Apple Watch bands

The Apple iPhone XS and XS Max also get a new pastel for the Smart Battery case.

In what has been a week where Apple has quietly announced a number of hardware refreshes such as the Apple iPad mini and iPad Air as well as new Airpods, the Cupertino giant has now also announced quite a few new Watch bands and iPhone cases ahead of spring.

Apple launched Smart Battery cases for the newer iPhone XS and XS Max back in January and the company is now releasing a Pink Sand option that will now be available alongside the black and white ones.

There are three new pastels for silicon cases as well. The iPhone XS and XS Max now get a Cerulean, Papaya and Spearmint case. The same three shades are now also available as Apple Watch Sport Bands. Like all other Sport Bands, these will be available in both 40 mm and 44 mm sizes.

That's not all, Apple’s leather folio cases also get three new colour tones to choose from — lilac, sunset, and cornflower. The names do sound a little odd but they do look quite appealing if you fancy bright shades.
