Though the iPhone XS and XS Max have been here for a couple of weeks now, Apple isn’t quite done with the iPhone releases. Later this month, the company will release the third and final iPhone for 2018: the iPhone XR. While the XS and XS Max are clearly intended to be Apple’s high-end phones, the iPhone XR has a price point that’s closer to what mainstream consumers are used to paying for a flagship phone.
Apple’s iPhone XR accessories were first discovered by @ivanincanada on Twitter, who noticed that they were mentioned in the official iPhone XR press release posted on the company’s Canadian Newsroom site. The listing says, “Apple-designed accessories for iPhone XR including a clear case will be available starting at $55 (CAD).”

A clear case makes sense for the iPhone XR since it comes in several colors (white, black, blue, yellow, coral and red). It would be a similar move to Apple’s polka-dot cases for the iPhone 5C, which complemented the colorful design by letting some of it show through.
