Apple has launched new silicone cases in three colours for iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max. The new colours are summer-themed and include Sunflower, Cloud Blue, and Electrical Orange.

The cases are MagSafe compatible, which means they will work with the MagSafe wallet and MagSafe chargers. The iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, or iPhone 12 Pro Max users can now purchase the new accessories on Apple's website. The new cases cost $49 each, Apple suggests that you add a MagSafe charger ($39) and an iPhone leather wallet with MagSafe ($59). In India, the new Sunflower, Cloud Blue, and Electrical Orange cases are available at Rs 4,900 via Apple India online store as well as offline store.

These MagSafe cases are in addition to those already presented in April after the Spring-Loaded event, which was in Capri Blue, Pistachio, Cantaloupe, and Amethyst colours. However, the company has not introduced straps for the Apple Watch with the new colours, so users will have to combine them with the existing ones.

According to Apple, "The silky, soft-touch finish of the silicone exterior feels great in your hand. And on the inside, there's a soft microfibre lining for even more protection." Apple further added that "like every Apple-designed case, it undergoes thousands of hours of testing throughout the design and manufacturing process. So not only does it look great, but it's also built to protect your iPhone from scratches and drops."

In addition to protecting your phone, the cases are compatible with other accessories and support wireless charging up to 15W. Apple ensures that their MagSafe cases offer a more comfortable wireless charging experience as their design improves alignment and efficiency.

MagSafe wallets, meanwhile, are slightly smaller than the iPhone. They are offered in different materials and colours. These can be very useful to carry cards, passports, and other types of documentation without losing the sense of the aesthetics of the device.

Both cases and wallets use MagSafe technology to adhere to the back of the phone magnetically.

The Cupertino based company recently launched their premium entrant in the growing wireless earbud market in collaboration with Beats. The new Beats Studio Buds bring active noise cancellation to in-ear headphones. The wireless earbuds are priced at $149.99 in the US.

The Studio Buds are available in three sizes of ear tips (small, medium, and large) and never dislodged during outdoor walks or indoor gym workouts. The buds can easily connect to Android or iOS devices with one-touch pairing.
