Apple Debuts New Seasonal Colors for iPhone and iPad Cases and Apple Watch Bands

Apple has debuted a new lineup of colors today for iPhone and iPad cases, alongside a lot of new Apple Watch bands. A spring launch of new accessory designs is common practice for the company, but this year that was less than certain due to the state of the world amid a pandemic. These releases bring with them a semblance of normalcy, which I find comforting.

iPhone and iPad Cases

New colors for the iPhone Silicone Case and Leather Folio.
