Apple has quietly added some new iPhone XS cases and Apple Watch bands to its Online Store.
Its silicone cases and sport bands now come in hibiscus, mellow yellow, and pacific green. Apple has also added the celestial teal, olive flak, and smokey mauve Nike Sport bands that were made available through nike.com earlier this month.
Apple’s fancy new iPhone XR is available to purchase today. Pop into your local Apple Store and you’ll have an opportunity to play with the device — and if you’re really lucky, they might have a unit left that you can take home with you.

If you’re anything like us, chances are that you pick up your iPhone way too much. Whether it’s checking your Twitter feed or your WhatsApp messages, calling a friend, or having a quick go on the latest iOS game, the temptation that comes with having a super-power, lightweight computer with you at every moment can be tough to resist.
A new Japanese smartphone case aims to help — in a slightly unusual way. The $100 case seeks to sever your iPhone X addiction by entrapping it in a 22 pound (10kg) dumbbell.
You don’t buy a $1,000 smartphone and stick it in a $4 silicone shell you bought on eBay. You either leave it exposed so that you can enjoy its gorgeous glass and stainless steel, or you sensibly stick it in a beautiful case that complements its premium design.
