Apple Confirmed to be Releasing a Gold iPhone 5S?

Apple Confirmed to be Releasing a Gold iPhone 5S?

A new report from MG Siegler for TechCrunch is confirming that Apple will be releasing its next generation iPhone in a new gold color.

Yes, there will be a gold iPhone. That’s the latest I’m hearing from multiple sources after several weeks of rumors and possible component leaks suggesting the same thing. At first, I couldn’t believe Apple would break from the tradition of offering the simple choice: black and white (or “slate” and “silver” if you prefer for the iPhone 5) for their flagship device. Gold simply seemed too gaudy, perhaps even tacky. But a few compelling arguments countered my disbelief. And now, upon checking, sure enough, there will be gold.

It's believed that the gold iPhone won't be a bright gold color; rather, it will be more of a champagne color. Perhaps like the iPod pictured below.


Recent part leaks have also corroborated the idea of gold iPhone. We've seen gold colored sim card trays, buttons, and an alleged gold mid-frame.

Apple is expected to unveil its next generation iPhone on September 10th.

Love how it says Apple confirms, then it ends with a question mark meaning that nothing is confirmed.

I just want a slightly larger phone with a much longer lasting battery running iOS7 and don't really care much for the gold, although its good to have choices. I'm not saying make a not or mega type of his t phone. Yuck. I'm just saying keep the length and make it a by wider as well. More screen size.

I meant nothing like the size of the note or the new mega. Those are way too big. Just a little wider and much better battery.

A single unreliable source "confirms" that there will be a gold iPhone 5S, and it is confirmed? Haha, wow. Even if the author of this article is proven right by the release of a gold iPhone 5S they will still have set the precedent of posting material from unspecified sources that have little corroboration as being confirmed. Possibilities need to be properly qualified as being such, which was not done here. Even presenting the release of the gold iPhone 5S as a distinct possibility would be a stretch, based upon the "evidence" provided. I, unsurprisingly, will no longer be using this website for any purpose, seeing as, by allowing writers to create misleading articles, iClarfied has proven itself to be an unredeemable liability.

After Jobs, Apple has become confused about its product and marketing strategy. The board is right, people should question the innovation at apple. Gold. Really?!

Gold is tacky. Jobs would have never let this colour be released.

Gold iPhones have been heavily rumored to be launched on September 10th ...hope they make millions and millions as they will all be snapped up by China as they love gold coloured products ... Maybe it's to help with the big push with the providers into China ? Lets see ?

correct. china loves gold and red. so the chinese market will like it. also, this proves the phone is a 5s and not a 5 for people who needs to make sure everyone knows they have the newest iphone. i think the color alone can create demand in china. i would've like a green or dark grey color as an addition. but clearly asia, specifically china is the market apple is aiming for. i also think the 5c is for the china market too. to fill in the gap for the people who cannot afford
