Alongside the increasing number of third-party MagSafe accessories, Apple has its own range of iPhone cases -- and is reportedly about to unveil ones in blue, purple, green, and a kind of burnt orange.

Originally revealed on the Chinese social media site Weibo, the images were spotted by leaker DuanRui.

The original source says, in translation, that there are to be five colors, but only four have been shown. None had official descriptions, but the blue, purple, green, and orange colors are each more muted and darker than Apple's current Kumquat and California Poppy MagSafe cases.

DuanRui was previously accurate in revealing the name "iPhone 12 mini." The original Weibo leaker, "Uncle Pan," has no known previous track record for Apple leaks.

Update: DuanRui has shared additional photos of the rumored cases.

    Not really going out on a limb here. Apple often introduces new colors each Spring. Bet they'll be some new Watch bands too.

    To be fair. The leak isn’t just stating new cases will be released on the spring. It actually shows what colors.

    I have a car with vertical air vents. Can anyone recommend a MagSafe car mount that will work with them?

    There still aren’t many options yet. I was going to recommend the ESR mount that was reviewed here a few days ago, but that’s for horizontal vents and would probably require a little rigging on your part. Sorry this wasn’t more informative.

    Neither Apple nor the rumored vendor have colors that are identical to the 12 lineup. Maybe Apple will change that. I'd also like to see Apple release a 5000mAh MagSafe battery pack, slightly more svelte than the various third-party options.

    Hi! I broke down and purchased the Belkin MagSafe car mount for my car. I love it! My air vents are horizontal, but they back is able to turn and adjust as needed to fix vertical air vents. Another plus that I like about it is I'm able to immediately unlock my phone due to it being in range of view so definitely helps with keeping my eyes on the road.
