More publications with sources close to Apple have confirmed the company will indeed release a gold-coloured iPhone. AllThingsD says a gold iPhone is coming:
Sources in position to know tell AllThingsD that Apple, after years of offering the iPhone in either black and white, will soon offer it in a gold tone as well.
9to5Mac has also reported their sources say gold is coming to the iPhone as well:
According to a source who has used the device, the iPhone 5S will come in “gold” color option.
While many have called this new iPhone color “gold,” our source says that the color is more inline with the yellow fifth-generation iPod touch, but slightly lighter in texture. Some have called this “champagne” and that sounds about right. We’ve also heard that this gold model has a white front-face, so it won’t be a black and gold device, but rather a white and “gold/champagne” phone.
AllThingsD has a good track record when it comes to reporting on Apple, as the site first broke the news of the upcoming September 10 iPhone event. As for Mark Gurman from 9to5Mac, he is also well-informed of products and features as well.
Yesterday, TechCrunch and iMore also confirmed their sources have stated gold will be the next colour choice for the iPhone. The new colour aims to differentiate the next iPhone and also possibly target markets around the world where the flashy colour would sell like hotcakes, in particular China, India and the Middle East. Don’t forget all the ‘ballers’ back in North America as well.
Heck, who doesn’t like gold? Would you buy a gold-coloured iPhone?
