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, â€œafter years of offering the iPhone in either black and white, will soon offer it in a gold tone, as well. Apple-news siteiMoreÂ was first to break the news last Friday, its story corroborated in short order byTechCrunchÂ on Sunday, along withÂ 9to5Mac.â€

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 itâ€™s an easy option to offer and itâ€™s becoming a more sought-after colour option in China market.
