Apple is ready to cover up your gorgeous new iPhone SE with some beautiful new cases that are available in both silicone and leather options.

Prices on the new cases start at $35 for the silicone version that comes in three colors: white, black and pink sand. You can already order the cases which will arrive on April 17 at the fastest, the same date that iPhone SE preorders open.

Apple also created leather case options for the iPhone SE, something that is currently unavailable on the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro cases. The company doesn’t have a smart battery case for the iPhone SE yet though.

The leather cases cost $45 and come three color options: midnight blue, black and red. Shipping times for the leather cases is the same as the silicone cases. Every (RED) purchase goes toward the fight against COVID-19. The same goes for the (RED) iPhone SE.

Apple virtually unveiled the iPhone SE this morning, making it the first major iPhone release that didn’t get the Apple event treatment. The new device starts at $399 with the same body design as the iPhone 8 but with the same processor as the iPhone 11. It has the same rear camera as the iPhone XR and boasts wireless charging, Wi-Fi 6, Gigabit LTE and Touch ID.
