Only couple of weeks to go before the big event from Apple and the rumour mill is yet again busy churning out news of a new colour for the next-generation iPhone. Recent news of Apple getting all fun and colourful is not really much of a secret anymore. With the iOS 7 and then the colourful budget iPhone, adding yet another colour to its already colourful palette is not much of an issue.
According to AllThingsD, “after years of offering the iPhone in either black and white, will soon offer it in a gold tone, as well. Apple-news siteiMore was first to break the news last Friday, its story corroborated in short order byTechCrunch on Sunday, along with 9to5Mac.”

When iPhone was first launched back in 2007, it only came with one colour, Silver Black. Then iPhone 3G was introduced with a variation of white instead of the standard black. Since then, the rest of the iPhone versions came in either black or white. The only phone I know that comes in gold is a Vertu. Why the new color option now? Gold tones are among the easiest colors to anodize, so technologically it’s an easy option to offer and it’s becoming a more sought-after colour option in China market.
