iFixit ataca de nuevo con sus kits de “repáralo tú mismo”, esta vez para el iPhone 7
Macotakara was the first medium to realise this: the range of colours available on sleeves and other Apple products is being simplified . In the case of iPhone 7 cases, four colours have disappeared, two in the silicone cases and two more in the leather cases.
If we expand to other products we find up to nine colours missing from the iPad’s Smart Cover and Smart Case, Apple Watch’s Sport straps and also from the latest nylon straps. This has happened in the Japanese online store but is also beginning to be seen in stores in the United States and the United Kingdom.
What could Apple be doing? One explanation may be that Cupertino has decided to stop selling those colors that are selling less and less . The range of colors has been growing a lot, and for sure some colors must not have given the result they expected. The withdrawal would be staggered because it would simply be done according to the stocks in each country.
Apple may want to reserve that wider range of colours for the next iPhone
Apple may also be preparing to launch the next iPhone , simplifying its range of cases for current generations. This would be the models that we will see in a few weeks that would enjoy all the colors that are being withdrawn right now.
It’s normal: the latest model of the iPhone is the one that moves the most sales. And therefore, it’s the one that should have the most variety of accessories around it. But as always, it remains to be seen if this will become a reality when we see this launch. It shouldn’t be long now.
