For the first time, I wish I had an iPhone 7.
But to me, the new case colours were the most exciting product release of the day.
They’re beautiful, and they’re a departure from Apple’s other cases, which are mostly shades of tan, navy, and grey. I may be giving Apple too much credit here, but the new colours are, to me, an encouraging sign. Apple’s colour choices in the past always seemed geared toward men, leaving me to buy third-party cases that had a little more personality.
The only problem with the new cases is that Apple is only adding new colours for its iPhone 7 cases. If you have a 6s like me, you’re going to be stuck with the same old boring colours. For both iPhone SE and 6/6s users, that’s varying shades of brown, blue, and black (plus a Product RED case). There’s also a white silicone case for 6/6s users, but nothing close to the bright berry or azure 7 users get to have.
