A Korean Twitter account @Tommy Boi has shared images of the new iPhone 12 Spring cases collection. The alleged silicon smartphone covers are in four vibrant colors. As the source of the leak is new, therefore, the leaked images could be counterfeit or upcoming Spring 2021 collection. Currently, Apple sells iPhone 12 in a variety of cases in different colors and patterns with MagSafe and without Magsafe.
Apple might launch 2021 iPhone 12 cases Spring collection in four new colors
As per shared images, the new cases collection is of iPhone 12 Pro models with large camera cut out and the color names for 2021 Spring cases are Pistachio, Capri Blue, Cantaloupe, Amethyst. However, it is not clear if these cases are with MagSafe support or not. Boi claims that he has order the new case in Mint before the official release.
This claim is coroborated by another leaker on Weibo called Uncle Pan Pan which was later shared by Twitter handle @DuanRui who has a decent track record. Earlier this month, the leaker shared images of the new iPhone 12 case collection in the same colors as posted by @Tommy Boi. As per DuanRui, the new collection will come with MagSafe support.
The color scheme of the alleged Spring collection is the same as Apple’s 2020 Spring Collection for iPhone 11 cases and Apple Watch bands. Therefore, it is likely that the company might launch matching Apple Watch bands with the new smartphone case collection.
As much as Apple tries to prevent leaks, the information does slip out from supply chain sources. Last year, the redesigned leather loop bands for Apple Watch were leaked on Reddit. Recently, the company has updated its manufacturer’s security guidelines to prevent leaks which include:
- Apple’s manufacturing partners must conduct criminal background checks on all assembly line workers who work on unreleased Apple products, rather than only certain employees, and those with criminal records are to be denied entry to areas where unreleased Apple products are being developed or assembled.
- Factory guards at checkpoints must keep detailed logs of the movement of workers carrying sensitive parts from one area to another.
- Video recordings that show the destruction of prototypes and defective parts are now required to be retained for at least 180 days.
So far, these guidelines do not seem to be very effective, as evident from these leaks.
