Rumor: iPhone 5S Will Come in Three Colors

By - Source: Apple Insider | B 21 comments

What color iPhone would you want?

Apple's next iteration of the iPhone is still several months away, but when has that stopped the rumor mill? As with previous years, talk of the new iPhone circulates for months prior to the phone's announcement. In fact, it usually starts the day after the previous model is announced. People start talking about the features not included in the current new iPhone and speculate that Apple will include those missing functions next year. Today brings talk of a more cosmetic 'feature' for the iPhone.

According to Apple Insider, a Japanese Apple blog has reported that the new iPhone will be available in three colors. This means Apple is adding one more iPhone to the existing black and white models. Though it's not clear what this color is, it wouldn't exactly be a surprise, considering the rainbow variety of iPods on sale in Apple stores. What is unusual is that Apple is reportedly adding just the one color, as opposed to a whole line of colored iPhones. It's hard to imagine Apple settling on one bright color (such as purple, orange or blue) for this third color; however, the company could go with a 'non-color' that's popular with other phone manufacturers, such as silver or slate. Then again, Samsung has that lovely Pebble Blue Galaxy S3, so perhaps Apple is going to commit to one specific color. 

Apple hasn't announced an event for the iPhone 5S yet (it's far too early for that), but rumor has it that we're looking at a summer launch as opposed to the fall announcements we've seen the last couple of years. Stay tuned!

    Either rainbow or zebra stripe colored. I know, those aren't really colors. Would be funny to see people walking/talking with them though.

    You can't quote people now? toms wth man... roll the site back to the old style, this is insane...As for a rainbow or zebra stripe color, they already have them, they are called case protectors which most people have, it shocks me that people even care about the color given that most put it into a case.

    The only thing dumber than the concept of the article is the changes they made to the comment section. I'm thinking that they've simplified the comment section for apple users, bombarding them with rediculous options, like the ability to reply to a comment or quote somebody, was making them scared and angry.

    I cant wait to see how Apple romanticizes this as some new thing that every apple fanboy needs to buy into and trade in their 5 for one of their new Apple colors

    It's like the Malibu Stacy episode of the Simpsons. No matter how much the competition works to create something new and different, Apple disguises the same crap with a new hat and people show up to buy it in droves. I'll stick with Android and Windows Phone 7 thanks.

    The Apple boys will be talking about how innovative this is ..... sad thing is this is the innovation we will see out of Apple now that Jobs is gone.

    Because colors are so important when 99% of all phones have a case to protect itself....I for one love my iPhone but the color of it is absolutely the least important thing about it as I would never not have a case around a daily use device so small and bloody expensive.

    So they're going to fix the iPhone 5's problems, make it in 3 different colors, then call it the iPhone 5s? LOL
