Apple is Finally Selling the Clear Case for the iPhone XR

Apple launches the iPhone XR clear case

Even before the iPhone XR went on sale, there was a report that Apple was planning on launching a clear case for its next colorful smartphone, letting future owners show off that color while protecting the handset.

The iPhone XR launch has come and gone, but the clear case for the newest handset didn’t come along with it. Now, many weeks later, and the clear case for the iPhone XR is finally available to buy in the United States. Apple is listing it at $39.00, and if you order right now for in-store pickup you can expect it to arrive on Monday, December 10. If you want it faster, you can choose the fastest shipping option and the accessory will arrive on Friday, December 7. The free shipping option will see it arrive at your door on December 10.

The new clear case won’t stop you from wirelessly charging your iPhone XR, either.

“Thin, light, and easy to grip — this case lets you enjoy the look of iPhone XR while providing extra protection. It’s also crafted with a blend of optically clear polycarbonate and flexible TPU materials, so the case fits right over the buttons for easy use. On the surface, a scratch-resistant coating has been applied not only to the exterior, but also to the interior. Need to wirelessly charge? Just leave the case on your iPhone and set it on your Qi-certified charger.”

Other than that, we’re looking at a pretty standard case here, so no surprises. But the price seems okay if you haven’t already found another case you like.
