Alleged Gold Colored Mid Frame for the iPhone 5S? [Photos]

Posted August 16, 2013 at 3:54pm by iClarified
A gold colored mid frame, allegedly for the iPhone 5S, has surfaced online.

French site iPhon.fr has posted photos of the part obtained from Macboutic. Unfortunately, Macboutic has apparently erased the Apple markings to avoid legal troubles; however, the photos provide an idea of what a gold colored frame might look like.

Yesterday, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo issued a new research note claiming that the iPhone 5S will be available in gold and have a 128GB storage option. Kuo has a good track record with Apple predictions.


Notably, the screw holes on the alleged gold frame do match previous frame leaks as can be seen here.

Take a look below...

I'll have to see it in person. I might get gold just so people know I have the new iPhone 5S, but it depends on how it looks in person. If the fingerprint scanner is cool I'm gonna buy it. Lotta people complain about oh iPhones cost a lot people throw their money. Well, we work hard to get the newest and coolest. I don't mind spending money on new apple products. Plus quality pays for itself. And apples customer service is 10 out of 10. Never once have I been shot down for something that was going on with my iPads iPhones or MacBooks. Thanks apple. And that's iClarified for great coverage on the tech world.

Hey Steve. The nano is going on its 8th generation. 7th was last year. And I don't understand if you say 5S = 7th generation like nano and shuffle how is the 5S aka the 6? Long live Apple!!!

I don't know dude. Never mind. I just don't get what you're saying. Who's taking about iPod classics? No way they're going to waste time on redesigning and making a new classic. And your iPhone argument makes no sense. The number of icon rows doesn't determine what generation it is.
Nitro Junkie
Nitro Junkie - August 16, 2013 at 9:30pm
Hmm. I think I'm understanding what you're saying. Are you saying that apple only makes 7 generations of a product then they're done? So the 5S will be the last iPhone or last design? I just don't think that's plausible man. No way will apple stop coming out with new phones and designs. That goes for any product.

iMacs,MacBooks, Mac pros have been made for more than 7 generations. And the original iPod which is now called the classic has been made for 12 years with slight screen and design changes.

That chart is for product price points not product releases. Anyway. There's been a new iMac since '98. That's 15 years. Same with the Mac Pros. More than seven generations.
